When can I stop doing heel slides and body weight squats and kegels and this easy-peasy core ridiculousness and start going to my HIIT classes again?
That’s what you’re wondering, right?
You’re thinking, “Jen I am so, so sick of this simple stuff. I want to do a real workout.”
You’re 6+ weeks postpartum and you’re “cleared” for physical activity. So why can’t you just jump back into your running shoes and train for a 10K?
Because your doctor may have given you the clearance but your body may be going “Woah, woah, woah!”
This is one of the (many) lessons I learned during my postpartum rehab.
8 weeks after I had my kiddo I popped in a BeachBody.com Shaun T workout video (T-25 if you’re curious) and almost peed myself.
