These are all the strength and cardio exercises that Blake Lively trained to lose 27 kilos after her post-pregnancy
At 32, Blake Lively has gone through (and recovered from) three pregnancies, with their respective births. Her last daughter with Ryan Reynolds was born in August last year and, with willpower she lost 27 kilos. With the help of her personal trainer, Don Saladino (the same one who put the actress’s husband in shape for the movie Deadpool and in whose client portfolio Scarlett Johansson is also found ).
To do this, Black Lively trained from four to five times a week.
Cardio or strength training?
The routine began with ten minutes of warm-up activation. The trainer was in charge of performing corrective work to make the actress’s body move correctly.
After the warm-up, came strength training, which offered the best results when it came to burning fat. Although cardio was also important for it.
The truth is that the actress did high-intensity cardio, although this was the option they chose most of the time.
The best exercises for the upper body and the lower body
To work the upper body, Blake started with a warm-up with a foam roller, which she continued with dynamic mobility exercises, such as three and four sets of between eight and ten repetitions, doing the bridge while raising one leg.
Of course, to work core and abs, the actress also performed lateral lifts with a cable-supported on one knee. To perform this exercise correctly, she focused on squeezing her glutes and avoiding arching her back. She did three sets of ten repetitions on each side.

For each circuit, Lively performed three rounds and finished with 20 or 30 minutes on the elliptical, treadmill or cardio stair climber. Although, some days, she did outdoor exercises in the pool and swimming for half an hour. She even went to the climbing wall to climb.
