Kourtney Kardashian sizzles in throwback bikini photo after confessing she has gained weight during lockdown
She has embraced her quarantine curves and recommends a few moves for fans to get that perfect bikini bod
Kourtney Kardashian posted a sizzling flashback picture of herself on her POOSH Instagram account. In the picture shared on Wednesday, June 10, the 41-year-old looked absolutely toned and fabulous while wearing a black and white bikini as she stood by a swimming pool. The photo was taken by her sister Kendall Jenner.
The latest post by Kourtney comes after she admitted that she has gained a bit of weight during coronavirus lockdown. The mother-of-three also said that she was embracing her quarantine curves. The caption of the Instagram post that was linked to a POOSH article read: “While a toned body doesn’t appear overnight, these 3 at-home exercises quickly tighten and define your core so you can feel your best this bikini season.”

The POOSH article recommended three moves to get that dreamy toned body like Kourtney. The first one was ‘Raised-Leg Crunches’ and the method to do it was described as, “Lie flat on your back and raise your legs, bending your knees to form a 90-degree angle. Place your hands behind your head and slowly crunch straight forward, pulsing your upper body toward your knees. Remember to keep your back flat, chin up, and try to get your shoulder blades off the ground for each crunch.”
The second move was ‘Jackknife Push-Ups’. How to do it? “On a BOSU ball, position your arms shoulder-width apart and do a push-up. As you power up, pop your feet open, and then bring them back together as you go back down. The ball requires you to engage your core muscles while you complete this move, making it great for strength training.”
The third and last exercise was called 'Bicycle Crunches' in the article and the way to do it was “Lie on the floor and place your legs at a 90-degree angle with your arms behind your head. Keep your shoulders high and your lower back squeezed against the mat. Pump your legs back and forth in a bicycle motion, with your shoulders off the ground. We suggest crunching left and right, touching your elbow to your opposite knee to engage your obliques (a.k.a. love handles).”
In May, the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star opened up about her three pregnancy journeys and how she lost the baby weight. In a POOSH article, Kourtney also advised new mothers to listen to their bodies and not to unrealistic social standards. The TV star shares three children — sons Mason (10) and Reign (5), and seven-year-old daughter Penelope with her ex Scott Disick.
“The most important thing is to listen to your body and to do what you’re doing for you, not for society’s standards of getting your body back because they are unrealistic,” she wrote in the article while giving a piece of advice to new mothers who are trying to lose weight after their pregnancies. Kourtney also revealed that while her weight remained consistent in all of her pregnancies, the pregnancies in themselves were quite different from each other.
“I gained exactly 40 pounds with all three of my pregnancies but my body and my experience after having each of my kids were so different. I was in a different place mentally, emotionally, and physically, even if by just a couple years,” she added.
