Emily Skye Says She’s "Getting Stronger" in a Post-Baby Body Photo Showing Loose Skin

Fitness influencer Emily Skye is enjoying her post-pregnancy workout regimen with her “cutest training buddy ever.” In a mirror selfie with her three-month-old daughter Mia, Skye shared her progress since giving birth.

“Some people might think my progress is due to my genetics or because of breastfeeding but I can tell you it’s got a LOT to do with hard work and consistency!” she captioned the photo, which shows her loose skin. “All those midnight workouts I did after Mia fell asleep and eating healthy meals from my FIT Program are getting me great results.”

She goes on to share that she's getting stronger and leaner and is in good spirits, which she said helps her mini-me, too. “When I’m happy Mia seems happier too,” she wrote.

Since bringing home baby, Skye has been transparent about the body changes she’s experienced. Last month, she posted a side-by-side image comparing her pre-baby and post-baby abs.

“Physically speaking I will never be the same (which isn’t a bad thing) and I’m making the most of what I’ve got,” she said. “I’ve still got loose skin on my belly but my abs are beginning to make a comeback - which shows me that what I’m doing is working…”

One workout she’s probably doing is her 20-minute core routine, which focuses on developing strong abs as well as the core muscles that help support every body, not just post-partum bodies.

"Almost every woman that I talk to wants to have a great set of abs," Skye told Health in 2016. "It’s one thing to have strong abs, but it's more important to have a strong core. Your core muscles are the muscles inside you that you can’t see, but do almost all the work. For people that suffer from back pain and poor posture, working on your core strength can go a long way to helping you improve these problems."

The Only Dumbbell Exercises You’ll Ever Need

There are hundreds of ways you can use weights to ramp up your workouts. But many basic moves target just one group of muscles, such as the biceps or triceps. Save time by doing complex moves—ones that target multiple areas of your body. “A handful of creative moves can cut your workout time by a lot while increasing your strength and coordination,” says Alain Aguilar, MA, a lecturer in exercise and sports science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

To get started, try this workout, designed by Aguilar. The moves call for three-, five-, and 10-pound dumbbells, but you can also work with whatever weights you have available. Do this sequence two to three times a week. Start with one set of each move. As you get stronger, do up to four rounds...

Shay Mitchell’s Core Move Looks Like a Plank But Works Her Entire Body

Shay Mitchell is back in the gym with another heart-pumping full-body workout.

The 30-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a couple snippets from her gym session with her trainer "J" (@j.crvz on Instagram) on Tuesday. She started with a TRX pike up to split move, which involved starting in a straight-arm plank with her feet in a TRX suspension training system.

Health senior fitness editor Rozalynn S. Frazier says to perform this move, you need to keep your core tight and lift your hips up so your body forms an upside down “V” as you open your legs as wide as possible. This challenging move tests your balance and stability while also working your arms, core, and legs.

Mitchell's second move was a series...

“Those angles, I tell ya…,” she wrote, complete with a crying-laughing and peach emoji. “The one thing I was most insecure about growing up was my booty. I’ve always been smaller on bottom and I would try to wear long shirts to cover it.”

She went on to talk about how she’s used fitness to sculpt her body and shared some insight on how our favorite fitness stars get that perfect Insta shot.

“There’s only so much muscle you can build on your butt AND you need to flex it to really show it off,”...

After I Lost My Dad to Suicide, Starting a Yoga Practice Helped Me Cope

In September 2002, Kara Edwards was in the car on her way home from a weekend in the country with friends when her phone started blowing up with messages. “We reached an area with cell service, and I started getting bombarded with texts from my three brothers and other family members,” she recalls. Frightened, she called one of her brothers: “He told me that our dad had committed suicide.”

“It felt like my world had spun off its axis,” recalls Kara, now 37. “My dad was one of my best friends. I’d been a daddy’s girl from the time I was little, and even though he lived in another state, I talked to him all the time. We had just spoken before I left for the weekend, and he seemed fine. I was so stunned and distraught...
