*In the September issue of Shape, Ciara reveals how she was able to lose all of the baby weight picked up ahead of the May 2014 birth of her son, Future Zahir Wilburn.
“When I was pregnant with Future, one thing I learned quickly was, don’t ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil!” Ciara, 29, tells the magazine. “But as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day.”
Four months later, Ciara had dropped 60 pounds.
Ciara said she hit up celeb fitness trainer Gunnar Peterson, the man also responsible for Khloe Kardashian’s “revenge body.”
“Five days a week, Gunnar puts me through an hour-long plyometric cardio circuit that always includes boxing elements,” Ciara, who released her sixth album, “Jackie,” in May, explains. “It’s hitting your muscles; it’s a cardiovascular workout; and it’s a mental exercise… After I’ve done a few rounds, I feel as if I can conquer the world.”
“I would go to Gunnar first for my one-hour training session, then I’d have two more cardio sessions later in the day,” Ciara reveals of her three-a-day workouts. “That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months.”
