Our first top tip to follow when trying to ease into a postpartum exercise routine is to do just that, ease into it! Make sure that you are taking things slowly and not pushing yourself too hard as this can actually set you back on your recovery. For example, before going back to the gym, why not start by going for some walks near your home. If you feel great and there are no aches or bleeds, then you will know that you are ready to start going back to the gym soon. Build up your exercise routine and don’t put your body through too much all at once!
If you are nursing, then you will need to wait longer to start exercising as you need to wait for the milk supply to kick in. You will need a good nursing sports bra, and a nursing sports top and remember, you actually need around 500 more calories a day, so make sure you are eating enough and not over exercising during this time, otherwise you could even start to lose weight too quickly.
