Great Ways To Shed Post Pregnancy Pounds

Great Ways To Shed Post Pregnancy Pounds

When you first found out you were pregnant, your doctor likely told you to start gaining weight. Gaining weight is something that is just a part of being pregnant. Eating for two makes it pretty easy to gain weight. Now that your baby has been born, however, you probably want to start shedding pounds as quickly as possible. Many pregnant women are very anxious to get back to their old figures. You'll be glad to know that we've compiled three things that you can do to get your weight back to its previous state after you have had your baby. Try any one of these tips to help you get back to your old size.

Weight Loss for New Mothers
The Reverse Curl: A woman who has just given birth must often strengthen her abdominals back up, and reverse curls are great for this. In this exercise you need to lie down on the floor, look up at the ceiling and keep your knees bent. Keep your feet on the floor near your hips, keep your arms flat and your neck relaxed and then breathe in and back out as you suck in your abs and lift your hips off of the floor. Slowly return to the start position and then repeat. Do this 20 times if you can. If you can't, slowly work up to being able to do 20. Then work toward fifty reps.

This exercise is fantastic for making your abs stronger and getting rid of the hanging gut, not to mention helping your posture and your level of confidence.

Bridge Squeeze: For this exercise, you lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Put a pillow in between your legs at your knees and then draw your abs inward. Take a deep breath in and then let it out while you tighten the muscles in your bottom and lift your hips to make a straight line with your body. Count to two while squeezing the pillow and then lower your hips. Do three sets of ten repetitions of this exercise.


Air Bike: This fantastic exercise begins with you lying on the ground and raising one knee to meet the elbow on the opposite side (left knee to right elbow) and then repeating the action with the other limbs as well (right knee to left elbow). Keep doing this. This is great for burning calories and helps you to strengthen your abs (which is quite important to people who have just given birth). If you do these exercises regularly, they'll give you amazing results in just a few weeks. You can do them while your baby takes a nap and you can break up your workout to doing several exercises throughout the day instead of trying to do everything at once. Of course, if you do them all at once (or any exercises) for a 20-30 minute block of time three times a week will help you shed the pounds even faster. So, if you do all of these exercises as often as you are able, you'll find that you can fit into your pre-pregnancy jeans before you know what has happened.
