Elsa Pataky


Although she has previously admitted to being a fitness junkie, when it comes to working out post-baby, Elsa Pataky didn't jump right back in.

Chris Hemsworth's wife, who gave birth to twin boys Sasha and Tristan five weeks ago, wrote in her blog for Spanish Glamour that she waited a couple of months for core exercises. "In my case a specialized post partum physiotherapist recommended not to work my abs not work until they were totally joined again. As you know, when you're pregnant the abdominals separate as the belly grows. So you have to wait for your abs to return to its initial position before you start doing ab work or otherwise there may be a lump, like a belly that never goes away. I started working my abs two long months (after delivery)," she shares, referring to her first pregnancy with daughter Indie Rose, now 23-months.

The actress also shared that she is a huge fan of yoga and green juices, even sharing her go-to recipe. "The juice I like to drink once in a while and that helps me to clean my system is made with a blender: an apple, a carrot, some celery with the green leaves, a lemon without peel. Once it's done, you add a few teaspoons of olive oil. Super good."

Last year the 36-year-old told Women's Health she also enjoys Pilates and Thai boxing, something she picked up from her hubby. "He helps train me. But I have to punch up," she joked about Hemsworth's 6'3 stature.

Still, Thor as your trainer? It doesn't get much better than that.
