Getting Back To Your Cardio Routine After Giving Birth

One of the questions I often get from my mamas is: ᴡʜᴇɴ ᴄᴀɴ ɪ ꜱᴛᴀʀᴛ ᴅᴏɪɴɢ ᴄᴀʀᴅɪᴏ ᴀꜰᴛᴇʀ ɢɪᴠɪɴɢ ʙɪʀᴛʜ? I know, it's so hard to sit at home all day, especially if you were a very active woman before and/or during pregnancy. I remember the first weeks of talking to a baby all day long and feeling like I'm losing my mind, when all I wanted to do is go get a fun workout, move my body and feel like myself again. But I knew that if I were to push it too hard too soon - I would have ended up hurting myself. So what is the right move? Here you go: Once you hit that 6 (or 8) weeks mark and got the green light from your doc, you can start SLOWLY get back into your cardio routine. Here are a few guidelines to help you out: ✅ Try to keep intensity low, at around 50% of what would feel really intense or hard. ✅ Start with short intervals of 5-10 minutes. ✅ The workout should last for no more than 10-30 minutes per session. ✅ Avoid heavy jumps which can put lots of load on your pelvic floor. Got any question for me? Leave me a note in the comments and I'll get back to you asap!
