Guideline #4 for Return to Exercise & Running After Giving Birth: Strength Train Before High Impact Cardio

One of the biggest mistakes women make after delivering their baby 👶is go back to running or other high impact activities TOO SOON- before their pelvic floor and core are really healed. High impact includes sprinting/jog/run, jumping rope, or HIIT and mommy boot camp classes where they have you sprinting and jumping. ❇️There is so much pressure to “Get your body back” after 👶 especially on SM with all the celebrities with flat abs the day after giving birth. ❇️Women are so desperate to lose the baby weight and think doing all of the CARDIO is going to get them there faster❇️We get it. We’re athletic moms too. The women in our PT practice have done Ironman and countless 🏊‍♀️ 🚲 run 🏃‍♀️ events/races. We’ve made all those mistakes and have learned the smart way to approach postpartum core rehab after pregnancy 🤰 We want to help you get back to fitness the SMART way too❗️Proper Strength Training to rebuild and rehab your core and pelvic floor should be the FOUNDATION before you layer on impact and higher level fitness. ❇️Smart training can help prevent or mitigate issues like diastasis recti, prolapse and stress incontinence (peeing when you cough/sneeze/run/jump). ❇️If you’d like some help getting back to fitness, DM or call us 925-222-5446 to learn more about our Core & Pelvic Floor ReBoot Camp workshops❗️Next one will be held on Januray 8, 2019 and makes a great Christmas present!
