Having a baby is amazing and exciting, trying and joyful, but it also can be difficult to keep working out whether you have one, two, or five babies.
But Firefighter Tim says this doesn’t mean there’s no time to exercise. He shares some great core and postpartum exercises to get you back in the swing of things after you’ve had your bundle of joy.
However, Tim says, please consult your physician before starting any workout program or undertaking physical exertion after having a baby. He adds:
In those first 6 weeks after the baby is born, plan to start things slowly. Try to get out and walk. Another easy technique to work on is posture. After six weeks with physician approval, you can begin incorporating some new things into the mix. Today we’re going to be working on core and slowly trying to pull together your rectus abdominis, which can separate during pregnancy. Here are some great exercises for this:
Belly drawing in
Heal slide knee raise into a reverse Leg raise
Heal to straight leg
Pelvic tilt crunch on exercise ball
Exercise ball mountain climber
