Post Pregnancy Workout
Kegels targeting the muscles in the pelvic area: Get started by sitting on a bench keeping feet apart, with hands placed on hips. Concentrate on the muscles in the pelvic area as if you are trying to stop peeing and get up while doing this. Hold it and then return to the bench before releasing. Do this about in sets 1-3 and repeat about 10 -20 times as time passes.
Floor Bridges targeting the bum area and the hamstrings: Lie down on the back while keeping knees bent with the feet kept flat on the floor and arms relaxed on the sides. Tighten the gut area, squeeze the bum and lift that area off the floor while pressing down the heels to the ground. Hold this position for about 3 seconds and then lower and release the body. Do this about in sets 1-3 and repeat about 10 -20 times as time passes.
Crunch Beat targeting the legs and abdomen: Lie on a mat with the knees bent at a right angle in such a way that the lifted legs have the calves being parallel to the floor. Put the hands behind the head with elbows jutting out and lift the shoulder off the mat. Then extend the legs up, cross the ankles and put arms overhead. In this position flex and point the feet about 8 times. Go back to start position.
