Yoga With Your Baby
Yoga is a great way to tone, as well as take some time out to unwind. If you can’t bear to be separated from your little one just yet, find a yoga class
that lets you take him/her along with you. Not only does it help you get back in shape, but it is a great bonding tool, according to yoga and Pilates expert Susan Yu.
Buggy Power Walks
Walking with a pram
is a great way to get a bit of fresh air, tone up and
spend time with your bub. The good news is that it also works your glutes (bottom), hamstrings, abdominals and pelvic floor muscles, says celebrity trainer celebrity Lee Mullins. You’ll have a pert derriere in no time!
Bike And Baby
Hopping on your bike with your tot
is a great way to get around, as well as up your fitness levels. ‘Cycling is excellent cardiovascular exercise, burning 200 calories an hour and toning your lower half,’ says postnatal fitness expert Jane Wake. So long as your baby can sit up unaided and you’ve got specialist kit for your little one, helmets and a carefully-fitted baby seat, you’re good to go.
And If You Only Do One Exercise…
Pelvic floor exercises are very important pre and post birth (these are the muscles are the ones you’d use to stop yourself from peeing mid flow). Pelvic floor exercises
act as an internal corset for your stomach, flattening it from the inside, says A-list trainer James Duigan, author of Clean & Lean Flat Tummy Fast. Squeeze and clench them up to 10 times, three or four times a day.
