“Pia’s workout for the day weighted pelvic raise to stimulate the muscle fibers of the hamstring, glutes , the core ( more on the posterior musculature) . She did 4 sets of 20 reps. One of her 15 weight training workouts that she did at GOLDS GYM GLORIETTA.“
Keep in mind that this is just one of the fifteen (15) weight training workouts John Cuay has designed for Pia. There are fourteen (14) other demanding routines our Queen has to regularly go through, like other variations of core functional training exercises (see video below) and mermaid rotations.

This is how John captioned the routine above:
“Pia is doing a core functional training exercise. This is a 2 opposing extremity pillar rotating table top. Working in every muscle of her body. In this picture the prime mover is the left glutes and hamstring once she reach her end range. The core works as the stabilizer all throughout. The purpose for this specifically for Pia is to stimulate leaness on her glutes and hamstring, simultaneously working the 29 muscles of the core together at the same time, both for strengthening and to improve trunk stability ( u wonder how Ara Arida effortlessly twirled in swimsuit during MU 13? – cores conditioned)…
PS: this is an advance level core workout, I do not recommend this to anyone who is not core conditioned.“
Truly, being Miss Universe Philippines is never easy, let alone being a national beauty queen.
But Pia is not complaining. She’s in it for the long run! 😉
