Jamie Pressly shows off super fit post-baby body in Shape

My Name is Earl star Jamie Pressly, 31, looks super fit and toned on the cover of the upcoming issue of Shape Magazine. Pressly is surely Photoshopped to perfection, but it’s clear she also works hard for those tight abs. She told Shape that she ascribes to the “no pain, no gain” workout motto and that she met her goal of regaining her pre-baby shape in time for her 30th birthday. She has son Dezi James Calvo, 21 months, with her estranged boyfriend, DJ Eric Cubiche. Pressly said she’s “going through a rough patch” in her relationship with Cubiche, but that their son is “the greatest thing that’s happened to either one of us.”

There’s some arguing in the comments on The Huffington Post about whether Pressly has had implants and/or a tummy tuck. Several people say her boobs are natural on camera. They look normal to me and not super round, but it’s hard to tell in a magazine photo spread. Either way, you can’t just get plastic surgery and end up looking like that.

Pressly shares a home workout plan in Shape with her trainer. She said she also goes to the gym and that it’s good for her to get out, even though she didn’t want to leave her son at first.

I used to think you had to go to the gym to work out, but I’ve been doing more at home with a stationary bike, a weighted exercise ball (this link is to Amazon, but I got mine in the US at a Marshalls-type store for about $12) and a bar called a gymstick that’s a little better than standard resistance bands in that it’s harder to use. It saves a lot of time to work out at home and it’s ideal for moms. It’s doubtful I push myself half as hard as Pressly and I can only dream of looking like that some day.

Super fit people can serve as inspiration for the rest of us, and it’s only natural to question if they took any shortcuts along the way. It sure doesn’t look like Pressly did.

    It’s like no Hollywood mom ever get stretchmarks!

  2. CandyKay says:

    As another blog put it, Shape magazine “offers a monthly tribute to airbrushing and Photoshop.”

    um. On the cover her right boob looks really really fake. I can see the shape of the implant, kind of like the ones you see Dr.Rey holding in his hand on Dr.90210. It could be the photoshop but I thought that even before reading the article. No?

    You can prevent stretch marks early on by constantly rubbing yourself up with Cocoa Butter.

    No seriously. LOL

    She was a trained dancer and danced for years.

    You don’t get flexibility like that by half-assing it.

    Doing push-ups off a balance ball into a perfect pike is no easy feat. It looks as though she does Pilates as well (I didn’t read any thumbnails) and that would make sense seeing as she was a dancer.

  6. Carrie says:

    She may be in killer shape but she’s got an ugly-ass bellybutton. Mine’s much nicer.

  7. Granger says:

    Agree with morgs. Part of the reason Jamie has that killer bod post-baby is because she had a killer dancers’ bod pre-baby, and the more in shape you are before you get pregnant, the easier you get back to your “old self” after.

    Of course, it does help to have a nanny to watch the kid while you work out with your personal trainer…

    I never go to the gym anymore. I do cardio and strength workout DVDs in my basement. And despite two pregnancies, I’ve managed to regain my flat tummy. But I don’t get paid the big bucks to look like Jamie, so parts of me still need a heck of a lot more work!

    I’m sorry, she has a very ugly body, she’s a skeleton with a big boob job, her hips are protruding even after airbrushing. She would look so much better with 10 or 20 more pounds.

    That’s not a nice body, girls. No healthy woman should want to be looking like that. Prima ballerinas do look like that, as long as they dance well, it’s worth it. But us common mortals ? Please.

    I don’t know.

    She just has a very trailer park look about her.

    Not attractive.
