Cardio & Weight Training – Lose Post Pregnancy Weight

Cardio & Weight Training – Lose Post Pregnancy Weight

It’s natural to be eager to return to your pre-pregnancy shape after having a baby; but it is significant to give yourself enough time (about 6-8 weeks) to recover before starting an exercise plan to lose that post pregnancy weight. It’s better to start gently and see if anything hurts. Start slowly with low-impact, calorie-burning exercises like swimming, cycling or walking. Start with at least 30 minutes of workout, five or more day a week. Add duration and intensity as your strength and stamina improves.

Do confirm with your doctor before starting on your cardio & weight training regime.

Some helpful moves are listed here to help you-

Core Plank – Start with pushup position, turn your elbows to rest your weight on your forearms. Support your core. Forming a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Hold for 20 seconds, rest for 20 seconds and repeat for 3 times.

CardioPlay a DVD and warm up your body by marching, dancing or jogging in place. Do it about 3 minutes to get your heart pumping.
