Kourtney Kardashian's strict morning routine shows how she stays in unbelievably good shape

As far as 39-year-old women go, you'd be hard-pressed to find one in better shape than Kourtney Kardashian. The mother of three is known for her incredible physique, with her being an advocate of the keto-diet as well as being open about her strict regulations when it comes to the foods that she allows herself and her kids to eat.

Refusing to eat processed foods and choosing to stick to a gluten-free, plant-based diet, Kourtney compliments her healthy food habits with a grueling exercise routine that includes a rigorous morning workout that the majority of us couldn't even contemplate doing.

The mom says that she decided to focus on her health full-time after realising she was splurging on foods when on vacation, which in turn impacted on her fitness goals.  Speaking to E! News, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said: "That wasn't making sense for me anymore," she said. "I don't want to throw my body off by eating whatever I want when I travel and then be really strict other times."

While her diet is strict most of the time, Kourtney admits to indulging in the odd treat. However, she refuses to call it a cheat meal due to the negative connotation, "which doesn't make sense for all the hard work and healthy eating I do most of the time."

Kourtney also works out at least five days a week and she starts her day with a strict morning exercise routine. "Most days she'll warm up with a quick run or a jump rope session before leaping into strength training," E! reports. "Some days that means using a stair master or Pilates reformer, but she also has a series of go-to exercises that involve less intense equipment such as leg kick-backs using a resistance band (a move she says she swears by for toned glutes) and weighted squat cleans using a kettlebell or sandbag."

Kourtney makes sure to make her workouts a priority in her life. According to her, it helps her both physically and mentally.

"I think I take time for myself to work out every day, which I never did—especially having three young kids," she tells E! News. "I just never made it a priority, and now it just makes me feel so much better—mentally and physically."

But, while her schedule may be intimidating for the majority of people, the 39-year-old does have a workout buddy: her sister Khloe.

"I know for my body, I need four to five days a week of working out," Kourtney told E! News. "Khloe and I really push each other to do that."

While Kourtney's exercise schedule may seem excessive, it helps keep her in shape and feel good about herself. And, if we're being honest here, she looks absolutely amazing.
