POSTNATAL PILATES PROGRAM
Hi there amazing mother! I'm so excited to have you here! I'm also glad you made the decision to take care of yourself and start moving again after giving birth.
I know it's hard to find time to workout with all that is going on right now, but you are doing something amazing for yourself!!
IMPORANT: be sure to add this page to your favorites page so you can easily access it everyday! Do it now so you won't forget.
Here is some information of the program:
Be sure to be cleared with your doctor before starting any workout. You should wait between 6-8 weeks after giving birth and be checked by a doctor that you can start working out again. Even for Pilates!
These workouts are suitable for anyone who had vaginal birth, C-section or has diastasis recti.
The program includes 7 workout videos. The first 6 videos are about 12-16 minutes long and the last video is about 20 minutes long. Each workout focuses on different body area, such as arms, shoulders, abs, legs, back, and the last videos include a full body workout. If you need to rest in-between the workouts, please do so and come back when you are ready.
Most of the videos are equipment-free and it is recommended to use a mat or a towel for all the videos. For the last video you will need a small cushion.
Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and no shoes.
All the videos are located in one page. I recommend to start with the first video but you can choose to mix the workouts as you see fit. Fell free to do more than one workout video if you feel like it! but please work your way from video #1 to video #5. You can replay the videos as many times as you wish. Ideally, do a 15 minutes stretch 4 times a week after your regular workout or before bedtime, as a stretching maintenance. The 55 minutes video can be done once a week or once every other week.
Keep in mind that getting back in shape is a process! Always work within the limits of YOUR body! If something doesn’t feel right on your body, just skip it for now. With time and with practice, the exercises will become easier and you will be able to do more repetitions or a longer workout. Allow your body to ease into the exercises at your own pace! If you find the exercises too hard, then take a rest or do less repetitions.
TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED
Set a time and place to do the exercise. Find a quiet place you can work out at ease without interruptions. Try to find time when your baby is sleeping or if you have someone to look after him while you workout.
Stick to the video. Even if it is too easy for you remember that your body has gone through a lot and it is not recommended to over do it.
Don't give up! If you planned on working out and eventually you couldn't that's ok! It doesn't mean you need to give up. Try again another day or later that day. You will see that working out makes you feel GOOD so I'm sure you will try to find the time and energy to do the workouts!
Together is better! Workout it with a friend or a family member, anyone that can keep you motivated and you enjoy working out with. It will help sticking out to the routine.
