When Lesley-Ann Brandt sizzled in a white crop top and leggings at her WH cover shoot earlier this year, her son Kingston, was just six-and-a-half months old. Crazy, right? But those abs didn’t just spring back on their own.
Lesley-Ann followed a rigorous training programme, all while shooting the TV show Lucifer (on which she plays ass-kicking demon bounty hunter Maze) and breastfeeding! In her exclusive cover interview, she shares some of her secrets for losing the baby weight fast, without harming herself or her baby.
1. Natural birth
Lesley-Ann was fortunate not to have complications with her pregnancy or her son’s birth that would have forced her to have a Caesarian section. C-sections these days may be routine ops that are usually over in minutes, but they’re still surgery. You’re left with a wound that has to heal, which could delay your return to exercise.
