So *This* Is Blake Lively’s Diet And Exercise Routine

Blake Lively is looking INCREDIBLE less than a year after giving birth to her daughter James.

The 28-year-old welcomed her and husband Ryan Reynolds’ bubba last December, but she’s already rocking skinny jeans and form-fitting dresses.

She’s previously been vocal about the pressures women face to lose their pregnancy weight, insisting in May that she wasn’t ‘obsessing’ over her figure.

And it seems she’s been pretty sensible with her fitness regime, hiring the help of trainer Don Saladino.

Originally, Blake was working out once or twice a week. But now she’s filming new flick The Shallows – in a bikini.

With only two months to prep for the beachside shoot, Don increased her gym regime to five or six times a week.

‘We would do an upper body work-out Monday, lower body Tuesday. Wednesday was a playful pool work-out where she would do laps,’ Don tells PEOPLE.

‘Thursday was upper body, Friday lower body, and Saturday we were focusing on the accessory movers: the arms, the shoulders.’

Sounds pretty hardcore, right? Well, apparently not. Don reckons any new mum could keep up.

He continues: ‘What she did was very doable. We weren’t in [the gym] for three, four, five hours a day. It was max an hour.

‘Maybe a couple of special days it went over a little bit, but the reality is she has a baby, and she’s a working woman.

‘I told her to listen to her body. When you feel great, get on it. When you don’t feel great, shift down a gear. And when you feel like complete crap do really minimal work.’

Away from the gym, Blake also changed up her diet. Don encouraged her to eat four small meals a day – mainly gluten-free – and use coconut oil when cooking.

‘We made sure that her meals were well-balanced. She had a protein, a vegetable and a slow-burning carb,’ he says.

‘We tried to give her enough so that she wasn’t stuffed, but she was comfortable.’

Er. Can you come and train us, Don?!
