Molly Sims is hitting the gym after returning from a recent girls trip in Mexico. The actress shared a glimpse of her workout routine in a Feb. 7 Instagram post, in which she divulged some of her go-to Pilates moves.

Sims’s post-back surgery Pilates reformer workout included several different exercises, like plank to pikes, hundreds prep (with and without a block), plank holds, ab curls and tricep presses.

The Las Vegas actress shared that she’s currently working with a physical therapist in addition to her Pilates and strength training workouts. Sims underwent back surgery last fall for a lumbar disc replacement.

“Three months in post back surgery and here we are 💪,” the former SI Swimsuit model wrote in her caption. “Some days are good, some days are bad and some days are achey😭 but I got this. ❤️.”

Sims, 49, stated that she’s finally starting to feel recovered post-surgery.

“The most important thing working out has done for me is helping with my mental health… sweating and moving my body again has helped so much. (Yay for Stuber 😉),” she continued. “Taking it one day at a time and grateful that I had the courage to do this surgery.”

Friends and fans piped in to cheer Sims on in the comments.

“Proud of you for finding movement again!!! Looking great as always 🔥🔥🔥🔥,” wrote one person.

“Cryotherapy really helps recovery also. Highly recommend,” shared another.

“Good for you!” one follower praised. “Those are some advanced moves on the reformer! Means you are progressing very well! Keep up the hard work!!”
