Beyoncé is known for many things, and her bangin’ body is right at the top of the list — hers was the bod that inspired a new word, “Bootylicious,” after all. The pop superstar has always been the picture of health and happiness, and to celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins — who helped Pink and “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” star Paula Patton get back in shape after their pregnancies — that’s half the challenge.
“Working out should have been a part of a new mom’s regimen before she got pregnant, while she was pregnant, and for the rest of her life,” Jenkins told MTV News. “It should be part of your daily life, just like brushing your teeth or combing your hair. It’s your internal hygiene. So, where should Beyoncé start in her quest to get her fantastic abs and toned legs back? With her doctor, according to Jenkins. “A new mother should first wait until she gets clearance from her doctor, and she can immediately start by making healthy food choices. Once a mother receives clearance from her doctor, then her starting point depends on her fitness level,” Jenkins said. “A weekly workout regimen should include all of the components of fitness — cardio, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance — for overall functional health and fitness and for maximum results.”
Beyoncé reportedly maintained a healthy diet throughout her pregnancy, and just days before giving birth at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital was spotted looking “amazing” while dining out with her hubby in Brooklyn. If she keeps up her tireless work ethic, there’s reason to believe she’ll be back in bootylicious shape in no time.
With that in mind…let’s have a trip down “Bootylicous memory lane” courtesy of your girl BeyBey.
