Carrie is giving us major fitspo! Just in time for New Year’s resolutions, see how she lost 30 pounds of baby weight!
Carrie Underwood, 32, bounced back in record time after having her baby Isaiah in February. She gained 30 pounds while pregnant and lost it by doing easy, free exercises at home. Copy her workout now!
“After I had Isaiah, my goal was to take control of my body again,” Carrie told Shape magazine for their November 2015 issue. “I was lucky: I gained only 30 pounds, which is the recommended amount, and I exercised throughout my pregnancy. I did have a C-section, which meant waiting six weeks before working out. Within 10 days, though, I was able to begin walking slowly on the treadmill and around my neighborhood. It felt so good to be active! When I got the OK from my doctor, I started exercising with my trainer. Now we box and we hike trails, among other things.”
Carrie admits that working out as a working mother can be difficult, so copy her at-home fitness routine that you can do in just 30 minutes!
Carrie Underwood’s Weight Loss — Copy Her Workout Routine
“I like to continually mix up my routines to stay motivated. But my favorite workout is Tabata, which I can do at home in about a half hour. I’m in love with it! It’s hard, but it really works. I choose seven different exercises, like squats, lunges, or push- ups, and do eight rounds of each — 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for eight rounds. It really revs up my metabolism. When I’m done, I can handle anything,” she told the mag.
As far as her diet, Carrie says: “I’m vegan and I love bread, but recently, I started making dinner a breadless meal. I’ll have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, and I’ll make a sandwich on Ezekiel bread for lunch, but in the evening I’ll have protein and vegetables and no bread. When I wake up, my belly is flat!”
