Losing the weight you gained throughout your pregnancy is a top priority; add a post pregnancy workout to your arsenal to help lose this weight fast. Fortunately for you there are a lot of exercises available that are both effective and fun. The following tactics will help you supercharge that workout routine to get you back into your pre-pregnancy clothing in no time.
The Reverse Curl: A woman who has just had a baby will have to work to get her abs back in shape; reverse curls can help with this. For this exercise, lie down on the floor looking up at the ceiling and bend your knees. Your feet need to be just above your hips, your arms need to be lying on the floor next to your trunk, your head rests on the floor, your neck is relaxed and, as you breathe in and out, you bring your abs in and lift your hips off of the floor to the same levels as your ribs. Slowly return your hips to the floor and then start over. Try to do this twenty times. If you can't, slowly work up to being able to do 20. Then try working up to 50.
This exercise is great for your abs and will help you lose the pouch as well as helping you walk straight and with more confidence. This is an awesome exercise that you can do right next to your baby's crib. Just lie down on your back and put your legs straight up into the air. Pick your torso up off of the ground a little bit and lift your arms while making sure they stay straight. Lower yourself back down slowly to the starting position and repeat between twenty and fifty times. This helps strengthen your core and burns more calories. The baby weight will drop off quickly as long as you do this particular exercise at least three times every week.
Walking: In 2007 Harvard did a study that proved walking for just a half an hour every day can lower the chances of a woman keeping her pregnancy weight. Women who participated in this study lost eleven pounds and most of the women had lost all of their pregnancy weight by their baby’s' first birthdays. So: go outside and get some fresh air! It doesn't matter what time of day you choose to walk, but if you are going to take your baby with you make sure you choose weather that is baby friendly.
Make sure you take plenty of fluids with you. Do this every single day and you will drop your weight really quickly.
There you go! These are some of the best ways that a woman can lose weight and get back to her pre-pregnancy size. Use these tips so that you can be sure you will fit into your old clothing after a short time.
