If you are not happy with your weight after having a baby, don’t worry. You can drop those pounds quickly if you know what to do. You might not think that you have the time to work out because your baby needs you nearby most of the time. Of course, your baby will be sleeping a lot too. If you get into the habit of getting your workouts in whenever your baby is napping, you’ll soon see drastic results. Here are some things that you can do during your baby’s naptime that will charge up your day and keep you feeling (and looking) your best!
Leg Kicks: This is a great exercise to get your heartbeat up and strengthens your abs. To begin, lay on your side with your body slightly bent at the waist in a pike position. The bottom leg stays bent so that you can maintain your balance and the top leg stays straight as you bring it as far forward as you can. Then move your airborne leg back to hover over the bent leg. Taking care not to lower your leg, repeat the exercise ten times. Roll over and repeat with your other leg. Do this three times on each side and you’ll see results quickly.
The Super Crunch: This is an ab exercise that should be a part of every workout after giving birth. In this particular exercise lie down, bend your knees and keep your feet flat on the floor. Keep your hands behind your head while, as you inhale and exhale, you lift your head and your shoulders off of the floor. Hold that position for a moment while you lift your knees up off of the floor until they touch your elbows (keep your hips off the ground). Slowly put your body back into its beginning position. Do three sets of twelve to twenty and your abdominals will be rock hard in no time, and that weight will start coming off too.
The Bicycle: In spite of the name, this exercise does not mean that you have to ride a real bicycle. This is a wonderful abdominal exercise that works wonders for post-natal women who want to drop their pregnancy weight. Begin with lying down so that your calves are parallel to the floor and your knees are bent. Place your hands behind your head and then inhale and exhale back out while you suck in your abdominal muscles. Keep your bum relaxed while, as you extend your right leg, you bring your left knee up to meet your right shoulder. Your head and your shoulders need to raise up off the ground during this movement. After going back to the beginning position, repeat the motion on the other side. Regularly do three sets of twelve and twenty reps and you will quickly see your baby weight melt away.
These are exercises that can all be done while your baby takes a nap. Even if you have to break up your larger workout into several smaller ones throughout your day (instead of doing it all at once) that is still a lot better than not doing any working out at all. As long as you truly want it, you shouldn’t have any problems losing your pregnancy weight. Thankfully, these three tips can help you quite a bit if you do them often enough.
