📌 As a friendly reminder…everyone’s postpartum journey is different 💯 My journey will be different from yours and I’m sharing my personal adventure along with my knowledge of pre/postnatal corrective exercise and performance training.
📌 We need to go at our own pace, especially when it comes to our abdominal rehabilitation!!! ➡️➡️ There is no such thing as “bouncing back”!
📌 We need to be kind to our bodies and take it one day at a time as we recover during our newly postpartum period.
📌 When it comes to our core, it’s essential that we engage and activate those deep abdominal muscles.
📌 We want to gain back strength and endurance.
📌 If you know me…I will constantly emphasize the importance of strengthening our glutes ➡️ so with core work you will ALWAYS see glute training 🍑
📌 It’s about having a well-functioning body and being in a happy mental state.
📌 If you want more guided advice that’s unique to your needs and your personal experience ➡️➡️ I offer pre/postnatal training! I’m a certified Pre/postnatal corrective exercise specialist and PRONatal Trainer with 14+ years of experience 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Some key pointers when working your core when you are newly postpartum ⤵️⤵️
1️⃣ We’re talking about your deep core muscles 👉🏼transverse abdominals, pelvic floor & diaphragm
2️⃣ Maintain and gain core strength through safe and effective exercises ✌🏼
3️⃣ Learn how to perform 360 breathing correctly and properly engage those muscles through your breathing ➡️ don’t suck it in & don’t hold your breath!!
4️⃣ During the newly postpartum period I stay away from ⤵️
❌deep twisting motions
❌any movements that can add stress to the abdominal wall
❌any movement that domes or cones the belly
