It’s no secret Kourtney Kardashian loves a good workout — and she’s pretty much nailed the post-gym selfie, too.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to Instagram on Wednesday to post not one but two mirror pics — one from the front, one from the side — because as any member of the famous Kardashian-Jenner clan knows, the secret to a good selfie is all about angles, and when your good side is every side, you need more than one photo to prove it.

Kardashian, 36, seemingly referenced her trainer in the first picture, crediting him for the tough workout: “Don has been gone for 10 days but he is back! He almost made me throw up … love those kids of workouts.”

“I needed this,” she captioned in the second selfie, in which the mom of three, wearing black leggings and a sports bra (from her enviable collection, no doubt), shows off her toned abs from the side.

The reality star also tweeted her tunes of choice during the sweat session: brother-in-law Kanye West‘s new album, The Life of Pablo, which she said took her workouts “to a whole new level.”

In particular, Kardashian has been jamming to “Highlights” — and suggested her fans do the same.

“Warning: when listening to Highlights in the gym and @ElDeBarge and @TheKingDream sing, you may start singing really loud. #TheLifeofPablo,” she tweeted.

In a candid blog post on her website in January, Kardashian explained that focusing on fitness to lose the baby weight from her son Reign, now 1, helped her stay strong after her July split from Scott Disick, her partner of nine years and the father of her children.


“Everyone deals with hard times in their lives differently. I’m generally not a nervous person but I get anxious. I also get nauseous and feel like I can’t eat when it is really bad, but I force myself to stay healthy,” she wrote. “One thing I’ve found that really helps is working out. I try to exercise 5 days a week. I usually start with a quick run or jumping rope to warm up. I have to do something fast to really kill it. And I definitely need good music.”

“People are very quick to judge others by appearances but you truly don’t know what someone’s motivation is or what is going on inside them,” she added. “For me, exercise is as much about my body as it is about calming my mind.”
