Once you’re done with pregnancy, it’s essential that you start getting fit gradually. Running is the most effective cardio exercise out there.
You need to take the following precautions:
Take it slow
It is so important that you give yourself and your body the time to heal and recover completely from whatever type of birth you have had.
Once you have had your 6-8 week check by the doctor and had the go ahead to exercise, focus first on the type of strength-type training and give any high impact cardio a break.
Don’t set time goals
If you are competitive then setting time goals can force you to push past what your body is ready for, therefore increasing your risk of injury.
Try setting goals on how you want to feel and what your body feels ready for rather than pushing yourself too much.
Strengthen your core, hips and pelvic floor
A weak pelvic floor can cause issues from leakage to severe pain. It is essential to strengthen the muscles that were stretched and weakened during pregnancy and delivery.
The muscles in your hips and bottom are super important too as they will help to keep your pelvis stable, therefore preventing injury.
