 Rules of successful fitness after childbirth


  • Get permission is fitness after birth by a doctor. Your well-being can be a very accurate indicator of health status, but do not rely solely on him - listen to the experts.
  • Write goals that you want to achieve, doing fitness. The likelihood that you will stick to your fitness program is greatest if you are specific and fixed on the paper target.
  • Eat right, including, eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
  • There are 4-5 times a day, in small portions.
  • Objectively assess their level of physical fitness before embarking on a busy day. So you can set realistic goals and avoid overexertion.
  • Choose healthy snacks: fruit smoothie or ice cream instead of chocolate or a handful of nuts instead of cookies.
  • Always perform stretching exercises before training.
  • Slowly increase the intensity of your workouts. One of the most common mistakes of young mothers - start training very actively, as soon as possible to get rid of the accumulated during pregnancy excess weight. Enthusiasm goes a few days or weeks, and women not soon return to fitness.
  • Strive for diversity. If you every day are doing the same exercise, you will soon get bored and you'll use any excuses to skip training. Alternate different types of loads; do today - in the gym tomorrow - at the pool the next day - in the park, and so on.
  • Work together with your friends. Team spirit works wonders, does not relax, give in to laziness and lay on the couch at home rather than go to fitness.

  • Set unrealistic goals. The normal pace of weight loss - minus 500 g per week. Do not expect to be able to lose weight in a few weeks - will be waiting for disappointment, which often destroys motivation. Focus on child care - it requires a lot of energy and helps to greatly reduce the weight.
  • Compare your results with others. If your girlfriend after giving birth in three months lost 10 kg, and you can not lose 5 kg for six months, it does not mean that you're lazy or do something wrong. All people are unique, and the rate for each of the body - their own, so grow thin at their own pace.
  • Surrender. When you feel that you do not get that weight is in place, talk with friends, listen to lively music or watch a motivational movie, try a different type of loads, but would not give up.
  • Forget to reward yourself for successes. Be sure to buy yourself a small gift, or go for a walk to places of interest as a reward for achieving the objectives.

And further. Getting to fitness after birth, be flexible - the life of a young mother is dynamic and if you have to rebuild the training schedule, select a new type of load - do it. Be willing to try new things, and do not expect that it will be easy - no, no; but it will definitely be very interesting.
