This is one of the biggest questions you face after you give birth. But, don’t panic! It isn’t as hard as you think, I am going to share with you 3 great tips to get you back in shape, and get the body you deserve!
Tip # 1
Develop a schedule that you know you can follow. It is very hard to get anything done that we don’t plan, and having a new one to look after you really need to make a schedule. What I mean by this is sit down and plan to do a workout 4 to 5 times a week. Plan the time you will go and always stick to it!
When making this plan include your spouse, let them know this is your time and they need to do their part. You can’t expect to lose your baby weight while trying to look after everybody. Make some time for yourself!
Tip # 2
Circuit training. You ask, “how do I lose baby weight” and as a personal trainer I say, “circuit training”. No ifs ands or buts about it! Now, this does not have to be in the gym! You can do this in your home, neighborhood, anywhere!
In fact take your baby to the park and have your spouse play with them while you workout! Your baby gets outside, and you lose your baby weight! That’s what I call a win win!
Now, you may ask, “What the heck is circuit training?” I will give you an example to follow, feel free to tweak it if you wish!
Mon: Legs – wide leg squats with 5 pound weight – 25 reps – then put down the weight and do squat jumps for 30 seconds. ( bend all the way to the floor and jump up in the air) Do this 5 times in a row with 1 minute of rest in between.
Tues: Arms – take 3 pound weights and do bicep curls 25 – then put the weights over your head elbows in and raise your arms straight up doing a triceps extension – 25 reps. Then, lay down and do 20 crunches. repeat 5 times with 1 minute rest in between
Wed: Back – hold 3 pound weights and keep your legs straight and touch your toes and then stand back up straight 25 times. Bend over almost 90 degree bend in your back and pull your weights to your sides – like a rowing motion – 25 reps. Jump rope or jog in place for 30 seconds. Repeat this 5 times with 1 minute rest in between each set.
Thurs: Chest – push ups – 100 – do them however you can! even if it is one at a time! 100 push ups. when you pause, lay down and do leg lifts for your lower abs. 50 total for the session. It doesn’t matter how long it takes just do it!!!
