Instead of saying that she simply pumped her way back to an amazing body, Paula says that she worked out for two and a half hours, six days a week. It was a serious commitment and it wasn’t easy. “It was really the most grueling and one of the hardest things I’ve done,” Patton told People Magazine.
She went on to say, “I would never cry in front of the boys, but inside I was hurting and a little depressed. You have to get past that moment of self-doubt. After a month, the wall came down and the training felt doable. It still wasn’t easy, but doable and that felt really empowering.”
Her secret: the Alternating Leg Lower with Oblique Twist, says her trainer, Jeanette Jenkins. Jenkins says you’ll notice a difference after just one workout; do 15 to 20 reps, two or three times a week for stronger abs in three weeks.
