Ever wondered how celebs suddenly conjure up six-pack abs when they're prepping for a huge film? Well, Halle Berry just posted a bunch of videos revealing how she does it: seriously hard work.

In her latest Fitness Friday post, Halle and her trainer Peter Lee Thomas demo-d the abs exercises that she’s been doing to “accelerate muscular ab growth in preparation for my next film.”

It’s not just about looking jacked, though. Halle points out on Instagram that “a strong core supports EVERY other part of your body.”

Here's Halle's go-to abs circuit so you can try it on your own:

1. Bear Crawl Bench Up And Downs

How to: Get on your hands and knees facing a couch or bench. Your hands should be directly under your shoulders, and knees are hovering off the floor, with weight in your toes. Then slowly and without twisting your hips, lift your left hand up and place it on the bench. Then do the same with your right. Return to your starting position, one hand at a time. That's one rep.

2. Lateral Hop With Bench

How to: Place your hands on a bench and stand with your legs together one one side. Then, jump both legs over the bench to the other side, and jump right back. That's one rep.

3. Reverse Bear Crawl Bench Up And Downs

How to: Get on your hands and knees facing away from a couch or bench. Your hands should be directly under your shoulders, and knees are hovering off the floor, with weight in your toes. Then, keeping your arms straight, lift your right foot onto the bench, followed by your left. That's one rep.

7. Hanging Windshield Wipers
