Lately, the singer has stayed active by way of walks, yoga, Pilates, and trainer-led Zoom workouts, sharing updates with her 16 million+ followers along the way. Her latest?

She did a series of butt- and thigh-focused exercises.

Ora’s trainer, Ciara Madden posted videos from the session on her Instagram story. The two took advantage of some sunny weather with an outdoor workout incorporating butt- and thigh-focused exercises.

In one of the videos, Ora did leg lift pulses on all fours, a move that targets the glutes. Ora also did two squat variations: First, she powered through dumbbell squat pulses, which work the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and core. Then, for an added cardio element, Ora did TRX in-and-out jump squats. The plyometric move strengthens the legs and glutes and increases power.

For her workout, Ora dressed in one of her go-to activewear brands, Lululemon. She wore the Lululemon Free to Be Bra Wild (Buy It, $48, lululemon.com), a light, sweat-wicking, cool-to-the-touch bra that reviewers say is not only comfortable but also flattering. Ora paired the bra with blue-gray Lululemon Align Pant leggings (Buy It, $98, lululemon.com), a buttery-soft pick that’s been dubbed “the perfect legging for any occasion” by Lululemon shoppers.

To complete her comfy-cool athleisure look, Ora wore a Cher baseball cap and white Adidas by Stella McCartney UltraBoost x Parley Running Shoes, a knit sneaker made with yarn created from recycled ocean plastic. Her exact pair is sold out, but they’re still up for grabs in black (Buy It, $275, farfetch.com). (Related: These Lululemon Items Have the Best Customer Reviews)
