Exercises to Postpone During the Postpartum Period

During the postpartum period while you are repairing your core and pelvic floor, there are certain exercises that are best ‘postponed’ for a short period of time.

We never like to tell mamas NOT to do something, and no exercise is off-limits. However, it’s important to make sure your core and pelvic floor are working 100% before jumping back into these advanced exercises.

With the proper training,  you can get back to ANY exercise you love!

In the video below we go through exactly which exercises to put on your ‘for later’ list. Then, download the PDF to learn the poses you would do instead to progress to these advanced exercises.

Advanced Exercise Progressions

The exercises on the LEFT are the ‘Advanced’ exercises.  The exercises on the RIGHT include modifications / progressions for each exercise. If you find yourself in a group class doing one of these ‘advanced’ exercises, the list on the right will help you find a postpartum-friendly modification.

Not sure what the pose names mean? Don’t worry, throughout this entire course, we will be teaching you ALL of these poses so you’ll know how to progress to the more advanced exercises like a pro!

Remember! One of the most important aspects of this work is that you listen to your own body. Something doesn’t feel right? Heed your body’s signals and back off on the intensity if needed.

Test yourself for Diastasis Recti

Over 60% of women who have had a child have some form of ab separation, or Diastasis Recti. And most of them have no idea they even have it. We’ve seen women 5, even 20 years postpartum that are shocked to find out they have an ab separation, and it’s likely causing them issues they never even knew were connected to their core strength.

If you have Diastasis Recti, jumping right into core work now can make your separation WORSE. We definitely don’t want that!
Watch the video below, test yourself and post your findings in the forum.
Then read this article. (The last one will really surprise you!):
