Post-Pregnancy Work Out

Two months post-pregnancy and my “return-to-pre-pregnant-size” progress has come to a complete halt.  It has become apparent that it is going to take more than simply looking after my kids and breastfeeding two kids simultaneously to get back in form.  So this is me taking steps to incorporate a workout program into an already impossibly busy schedule of looking after two high-demand kids…

Although I had a normal vaginal delivery and have healed up pretty well, my rectus abdominis muscles are still separated meaning that I cannot engage in all the usual abdominal workouts most Mums get into to lose that excess tummy flab.  I’m going to have to go light on the abdominals until my muscles heal, so this is me taking it easy.

My post-pregnancy workout started earlier this week and this was what I got up to:

Monday – Zip

  • Step Advance – 10 minutes
  • Boxing Basic – 8 minutes

Wednesday – 37 minutes Wii Fit

  • Step Basic – 6 minutes
  • Step Advance – 5 minutes
  • Boxing Basic – 8 minutes
  • Hula Hoop Basic – 6 minutes
  • Balance – 8 minutes
  • Yoga – 4 minutes

Thursday – 31 minutes Wii Fit

  • Step Basic – 6 minutes
  • Step Advance – 5 minutes
  • Boxing Intermediate – 16 minutes
  • Hula Hoop Advance – 4 minutes

Friday – rest
