But the real question is how did they get their bodies back into shape after giving birth? Kourtney Kardashian \- who is mother to Mason, 10, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 5 - recently shared an incredible picture of her relaxing on a boat in Sardinia, Italy wearing a gold-coloured bikini. And we are in awe of her toned abs! Luckily, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star shared some of her secrets about how she got her pre-baby body back on her lifestyle website, Pooch. Although her methods changed after each child, there was one exercise in particular that she really credits for her toned figure.While she was pregnant with Mason, she said light cardio workouts such as "a quick two- to three-mile run" and uphill walks were her go-to exercise. But it was actually breastfeeding for 16 months that she credits for her weight loss. "It forces you to eat super clean for your baby, drink much less alcohol and caffeine, and hydrate with a ton of water," she wrote. "It burns around 700 calories each feeding."MORE: 7 of the best celebrity fitness apps to download in 2020After trying yoga following Penelope's birth, she said she started to really enjoy High Intensity Interval Training, also known as HIIT, especially with the help of her trainer Dom.
