    Miley Cyrus's yoga moves are so intense, they could earn her a role as a contortionist thief in the Ocean's Eleven movies. The "Wrecking Ball" singer has taken to Instagram to share photos — not to mention short videos — of her yoga routines. You thought push-ups were hard? Try hoisting your body while your legs are folded into a pretzel-like shape!

    The actress and Honest Company founder is quite the pedal pusher. Jessica Alba regularly hits Cycle House in Los Angeles for early morning spinning classes. In this shot, posted on Snapchat and Instagram, the makeup-free Alba flexes her biceps while posing next to a trainer. The "Got it in" text and accompanying sweat drops emblazoned over the bottom of the pic, meanwhile, add a whimsical tone that suggests Alba doesn't take herself too seriously.

    Star Trek Beyond star Zoe Saldana shed the weight she gained while pregnant with her twin boys, Cy and Bowie, by exercising at home. "After I had the boys, I was so inspired by the mommies [on social media] doing all their exercises in between naps and feeding times," Saldana told Allure. "I never went to a single gym — I exercised in my backyard!" To pay it forward and inspire other moms, she's documented some of her at-home workouts — including this one involving an agility ladder.
