Did you know that postpartum women should exercise differently? Your body goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy and these changes cannot be ignored postpartum. Women who have had babies, or who weakened core muscles should NOT be doing crunches, sit-ups or frontal planks (leaking urine is a sign of a weak pelvic floor, a part of your core. It is not something that should be accepted as a normal part of postpartum life). It is important to rehabilitate your core muscles to function as they should before beginning high intensity workouts (I wouldn’t even recommend crunches to anyone as they are an extremely inefficient exercise often performed incorrectly). Did you know how you breathe matters when you exercise and your deepest core muscles can only be engaged through breathing patterns?
Did you know that adding weights to an exercise is a progression and weights should never be added until an exercise is performed correctly without weights?
