Kourtney has personal trainer Don Brooks to thank for her rapid post-baby fat loss. She started working with Don Brooks who also trains Fergie and Will.i.am right after having her second child Penelope.
The magic routine which Kourt confessed to E! News she wears by is called Don-A-Matrix method. Don Brooks, creator of the method told E! in an interview that the workout is set up like a game. In his definition, “The Don-A-Matrix Method is set up to resemble a sports game format consisting of four quarters. Each quarter has 3 sets of two different exercises, combined with rest or relief periods after each quarter.”
Don Brooks also said the workout lasts somewhere between 45 minutes and 1 hour and that Kourtney trains between 3 to 5 days a week!
“The plank is a favorite” Don Brooks told E! he continued “but we take it to another level opening and closing the legs like scissors while at the same time raising and dropping the hips! So not only are you strengthening the core but also timing the hips, thighs and waist. [We also do] the trunk twist along with a back row using the bands. The benefit of this exercise will give you flat abs and coke bottle obliques while removing those fat handles from the back and arms.”
Now you know having a body like the hot mom of three doesn’t come easy. In addition to the workout routine, Kourtney also eats healthy to stay in shape. Baby Sister Khloe wrote about her sister’s diet on her app saying; “Kourtney does not allow soda in her house. I do appreciate that and so I’ve been drinking way more water, but when I am craving a soda, I have to hide it from her, even in my own house!” Kourtney’s favourite meals and snacks can be seen on her app and IG page, one of such is the organic no-carb signature salad made with tomato, avocado, chicken and hard-boiled eggs. Even younger sister Kim had to beg her for secrets to shed 40 pounds after having son Saint West.
