Postpartum Exercise: The Two Big Mistakes Women Make

Many women think that the way they should start exercising postpartum is to simply dive back into whatever they were doing before pregnancy.

Some women manage to push themselves back into their hour-long HIIT workout or 50-minute run.

Some try, when they have a burst of self-hatred - often shocked by how “out of shape” they are - and then beat themselves up for this, and don’t continue to exercise because that first experience was so awful.

For most women, what they THINK constitutes a good workout feels overwhelming, because they feel so weak, are worried about doing damage to their pelvic floor or tummy muscles, or they are just SO TIRED from taking care of a newborn… so they just never do it.
