She looks incredible rocking a maroon bikini lakeside. If there's one person who know how to rock a bikini pic (besides Elizabeth Hurley, of course), it's Cindy Crawford. She recently took to Instagram to show off her incredibly toned abs and legs for days while wearing a maroon bikini and sun hat. Clearly, the 53-year-old mom of two is making the most of all summer has to offer with what certainly seems like a relaxing lake stay.

"A little bit of lake light ✨," the model captioned her photo.

Even though Cindy looks absolutely amazing—seriously, those abs!—some followers criticized her for being too old to don a bikini.

"You are old now. I don't think you are living in reality. Men do not foam at the mouth at 55 year old women. Trust me," wrote one hater.

Thankfully, some of Cindy's friends (who just so happen to be major celebs), were all about her lewk.

Rita Wilson wrote, "Beauty!!!!", Lisa Rinna gave her a "🔥", and former model Helena Christensen commented, "And a lot of hotness 💥💥💥❤️"

Regardless of a few mean comments, Cindy seriously does look incredible. Here's how she gets her body in amazing shape:

She loves a morning workout.

Cindy shared with Harper's Bazaar that she does a 7 a.m. workout with lots of cardio.

"I do 20 minutes of cardio, 10 on the Bellicon trampoline, and 10 running stairs. I listen to music and audiobooks—it makes it go faster," she explained. "I don’t love working out—does anyone? But I love the way I feel afterward." (Same, Cindy, same.)

...and is all about weights.

Cindy told The Cut that while she likes doing cardio, she doesn't neglect strength training.

"I try to get 20 minutes of cardio at least three times a week. Then I do anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour of old school lunges, weights, squats, and bicep curls—it’s just stuff that I learned 30 years ago." she said. "Once a week, I try to go on a hike with a friend so I combine exercise and girlfriend time—it’s the best multitasking."

Cindy loves healthy drinks.

She also shared with The Cut that she loves green tea and always drinks a healthy smoothie with added veggies and protein. "During the week, I almost always make a smoothie," she said, explaining that she was inspired by a friend who has a company called Urban Remedies. "When I’m traveling, I order her smoothies to be delivered," she continued. "When I’m home, I’ll make it myself."

Cindy's go-to smoothie recipe? It's pretty simple: almond milk, a piece of banana, a cup of spinach, some mint, a little cacao, green powder, and protein powder. She especially loves using Elle MacPherson’s SuperElixir.

She follows the 80/20 nutrition rule.

"The overall theory is 80 percent good, 80 percent of the time. That’s achievable to me. But I’m constantly learning," she told The Cut. "When I first moved to New York, for some reason everyone thought pasta was low fat. I actually thought that was a diet food. I was never so happy. It was awesome." These days, she looks back at that "with longing" and wishes she still thought a big bowl of pasta was a diet food. "Now, it’s a total cheat," she said.

But, Cindy went on to explain that her body "does better with less 'white foods,'" like the bread and pasta she loves so dearly. "Those things stick to me more than a salad with a piece of salmon or vegetables and protein," she said.

Still, Cindy acknowledged the universal truth: "Once in a while, you have to have a piece of pizza."

And she also loves ice cream.

“It’s fun to have ice cream with your family after dinner," Cindy, who recently invested in Coolhaus ice cream, told People. “I never wanted to be the mom who was like, ‘Oh, no, I can’t have [that].’ I guess that’s not the kind of example that I wanted to set."

She also shared that she hearts In-N-Out milkshakes. “I don’t get fries,” Cindy said. “but I did get the chocolate shake.”
