I don’t know about you, but the thought of my first post-pregnancy workout was a bit intimidating. I hadn’t really done any strength training for quite a while, and knew it might be tough. On the other hand, I was excited to burn some calories and get those endorphin’s pumping! Before baby, I would make up a lot of my workouts. When I arrived at the gym for my first post-baby workout, I had to think about what to do for a few minutes since I was rusty! I came up with this workout and thought it was a good one to get rolling again. It requires minimal equipment, and you could even sub out exercises if you don’t the equipment listed.
In all honesty, since I did this workout my exercise has been lacking… I started back to work, and the baby wasn’t sleeping great, so I’ve had a hard time squeezing in workouts. We’ve been working on the baby sleeping better, and I’m hoping that once the middle of the night wake-ups decrease, I can get up and do some 30 minute workouts. I really miss it, and wouldn’t mind getting some of my muscles back! My goal will be 3 or 4 times a week with some walks mixed in when the weather isn’t bad.
If you had a baby, how soon did you start working out? What did those workouts look like and how often?
