3 Tips for Starting Postpartum Workouts

 | April 29, 2019 | Posted by:

Now that your baby is two or three months old, maybe you’re thinking about easing back into your workout routine. But where to start?

Here are some pointers for safely easing back into a workout routine.

  1. Start by walking. Take your baby outside and walk around your neighborhood or park. After a few days add in 10-20 lunges every two or three minutes. After a few weeks maybe try a minute or two of light jogging while you push the stroller, then walk for 5 minutes, then do some lunges. Thirty minutes of light cardio is all you might need to focus on.
  2. Add some weights. Once you feel like your body has adjusted to movement again try adding some weights. You can do lunges, squats, shoulder presses, bicep curls, tricep dips, and so many other great moves without even having to go to a gym.
  3. Be careful of crunches. Make sure that you are working your abdominals correctly. There is lots of information on how to safely heal your diastasic recti. You can always talk to your health care provider and they’ll point you to some great resources.
