Adrina Lima reveals how she got her post-baby body back

Adrina Lima reveals how she got her post-baby body back

Snapping back into shape after giving birth to baby number two is easy, right? Well, not really. Even when you’re Adriana Lima.

The Victoria’s Secret model stunned when she appeared in the latest show just eight weeks after giving birth to her second child, Sienna.

While other models have claimed to eat McDonald’s the night before the show, Adriana had to work very hard for that amazing figure. She only took three weeks off to rest after her pregnancy before her longtime trainer, Michael Olajide started kicking her butt back into shape.

“We only had five weeks to do it, so we were working out twice a day, seven days a week for two to three hours per session,” he says of the regime he calls the ‘aeroboxing endurance plan’.

Adriana started each day at 9am with 20 – 30 minutes on an exercise bike, then 20 – 30 minutes of core work. Michael says they then did a “variety” of exercises which included skipping, boxing and specialised sculpting exercises.

At around noon she’d go home to spend time with her daughters Valentina, 3 and Sienna and her husband Marko Jaric who she married back in 2008.

“She’d be back in the gym at 5.30pm or 6pm to put in another couple of hours,” he says. “To see her body make that kind of transformation after the first few weeks was incredible. All of a sudden, it just started to melt off – it was crazy.”

And it wasn’t just loads of exercise that helped her snap-back so fast. The model also stuck to a super strict, portion-controlled diet. “She had steamed meats, nothing fried,” Michael explains. “Everything was really plain with no sauces. She held back on sodium especially so her body wouldn’t retain water.”

“Water intake was also very important,” he continues. “She had steamed veggies like broccoli, spinach, very dark greens, and chicken. She stayed away from sugars.”

Talk about dedication to your job!
