Postpartum Workout – Body Bar – 20 Minutes

12 Dec

Icon - KB Black WordPress

Getting back into a fitness routine postpartum is difficult.  Between recovery, hormones doing crazy things, time constraints and everything feeling out-of-whack (your body, your mind, and your life) it seems overwhelming.  But you just gotta work with what you got, when you can, however you can.  And this is just what I am going to try to do.

 It is important to follow your doctor’s orders about when and how you can begin your fitness routine postpartum.  Your body requires time to heal and beginning a workout routine too early can hinder that and cause larger problems.  For me, following doctor’s orders about  holding off on exercise what a huge challenge.  I watched people run and I was envious, when I was doing my very light/safe ‘workouts’ I would stare at my kettlebells longingly.  I didn’t know how to ‘take it easy’.  But, I did need to recover and I could feel that.  So I took it easy and learned a little bit about how to relax along the way.
