Post-Partum Exercise

If you’ve just had your baby and concerned about getting your figure back, or just getting back into shape after pregnancy, there are several effective methods and exercises to help you be successful. During the first several weeks after delivery, you don’t want to do intense exercise or you will risk serious complications. Childbirth is a traumatic ordeal for your body, and all those abdominal muscles won’t just snap back in to place. It will take some time, but you can help it along with these exercises.
Kegels – If you did these before and during your pregnancy, you’re ahead of the game. To perform Kegel exercises, just squeeze your pelvic muscles like you are trying to stop the flow of urine. Practice a few times when you are on the toilet to get the hang of it. Then you can do them anywhere. Kegels also place no strain on your abdomen or joints.
Walking – Going for a nice walk will help you get your balance back as well as being a good low-impact aerobic exercise. You can walk briskly within a couple of weeks after an uncomplicated birth. A brisk walk is described as waling like a creepy person is behind you.
Isometrics – Contracting muscles with little or no movement. While lying-in bed, for example, tense your leg muscles and clench your glutes tightly.
Stretching – Within a week of an uncomplicated birth, normal stretching shouldn’t be a problem. Stretching will help you feel better and alleviate postpartum muscle cramping in your legs and back.
