This 6-week plan will help you get back into shape.
We know how hard it is to get back into your fitness routine after baby. You’re tired, you’re distracted and you’re always with that little bundle of joy…which makes it pretty hard to hit the gym.
Our first workout addresses general postpartum fitness, to help you gain strength and flexibility, and repair the body from pregnancy and birth. You can do this workout as soon as you’re cleared for fitness by your doctor (usually 6 weeks postpartum). Below, new mom Lauren Lorow, marketing manager at Sweaty Betty, shows you how it’s done!
Postpartum Stroller Workout
Workout Goals: To attack some of the weaknesses that pregnancy left behind and find out whether you suffer from issues such as diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction (most of us do!). To prevent long-lasting problems from bad posture (caused from breastfeeding and carrying the baby on one side), address a shift in your center of gravity, increase your flexibility.
