Training While Breastfeeding

5 Tips To Get Started, Plus A Workout!

I was cleared to begin training again six weeks after giving birth, and I know that I wasn’t even able to have a workout that intense right out of the gate—so, really, there’s nothing to worry about. Here are some tips to keep in mind if you’re a nursing mama that’s ready to get her groove on at the gym:

First Lesson In Motherhood

I’ve always been very in touch with my body. It is a large reason why I’ve been able to carve out and build my physique the way I want it. I understand my body, listen to it and make adjustments depending on my strengths and limitations. I also have a grand vision for it. My pregnancy and vision for my own labor and delivery were no different.

Exercise Ball For Strength & Stability

Since becoming pregnant, I have tried to get more creative. I haven’t been lucky enough to breeze through my pregnancy with zero body pains (mostly joint pain) or fatigue. Both have been major issues for me, so I have had to improvise in a big way in order to maintain my muscle and have a healthy and fit pregnancy!

Keeping it Real In Month 9 & Upper Body Workout

This week, I’m feeling great and was able to get three weight training sessions in. I combined muscle groups throughout the week to make sure I hit each body part (minus abs) that I wanted to train. Always choose low impact exercises that don’t compromise perfect form, safety or your balance.

Prenatal Partner Workouts

Park workouts never get old, and you can do them with or without your kiddos! So, grab your workout partner. Or, have your workout partner come peel you off the couch and get that beautiful pregnant body moving!

Upper Body Strength & Cardio Circuits

I had incorporated all of these exercises into my conditioning workouts prior to becoming pregnant, so my body is used to them and I have clearance from my doctor to perform them. If you have never done these type of exercises prior to becoming pregnant, I suggest you wait until you’re getting back in shape after your baby arrives to try these out.
