29th February 2012
As a swimsuit model she regularly shows off her figure in a bikini.
And 24-year-old Australian model Lara Bingle once again paraded her physique whilst going for a hike in Los Angeles on Friday.
The stunning former flame of English rugby union player Danny Cipriani revealed her flat tummy and showed off her stunning curves in a sports bra and tight running leggings as she worked up a sweat in the Hollywood Hills.

The Aussie model, who is currently in L.A after flying over from her native Sydney, Australia, last week, was accompanied by 30 Seconds From Mars' drummer and Jared Leto's brother, Shannon Leto, sparking rumours of a possible romance.
The two appeared friendly as they indulged in their exercise, with Lara smiling and laughing.
The make-up free Sydneysider looked tanned and happy as she took to the hills with the rocker and actor.

She finished off her day with a trip to a healthy food bar where she picked up a smoothie and some Hemp superfood.
In recent times, Bingle has been criticised about gaining weight.
In November last year, the bikini model, who famously wore a skimpy swimsuit in a campaign for Australian tourism back in 2006, spoke out about her figure to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph:
'I am a woman. What they used to compare me to was when I was 19, I'm now 24. We all change. I'm sure I'm going to change again from now until I'm 30, 30 to 40. That's just life and I'm embracing it,' she said.

Lara is also an ambassador for a weight loss company called Eat Fit Food and said of her role at the time: 'I've been a loving food addict of Eat Fit Food for over three years now.'
Around the same time, the star also hit out at critics who scrutinized her weight.
'You can never win. It is unfortunate that I'm their topic of being fat this week; maybe in a few weeks I will be too thin,' she said.
'I've never been that 'thin' girl, I have curves, boobs and an a***, that's my job, I'm a swimwear model. I don't not eat. I love my food.'

Last month Bingle showed just why she was once picked to represent beach babes Down Under in her now infamous worldwide tourism campaign titled 'So where the bloody hell are you?'
The bikini model was the epitome of fresh-faced natural beauty as she enjoyed a lazy afternoon sunning herself on the rocks at a beach on Sydney Harbour.
Lara scraped her hair back into a bun and went without make-up, and poured her shapely figure into a skimpy string two-piece.

Lara's costly tourist campaign made international headlines in 2006 when it was banned in the UK for the use of the word 'bloody.'
The ban was later lifted but the controversy gained Lara star status in her homeland. She landed a number of lucrative modelling campaigns for brands including Speedo and Vodafone.

She told Australia's Who magazine at the time: 'With Danny it’s just so easy - he gets me and my life and I get his. It just feels right.
It's nice to have someone to care about and worry about.'
The couple enjoyed a romantic holiday to Tahiti during their fling, but parted ways after just a couple of months.
She is best known for being one-half of Australia's answer to Posh and Becks, when she was engaged to cricketer Michael Clarke from 2008 to 2010.
