For many mums, getting back to their pre-baby weight can be a daunting and challenging task. Let's not discount the dad's too who might have indulged in some pregnancy gains themselves!
Whilst there are a plethora of things that are more important post birth than "snapping back", getting outside and exercising with bub can bring a number of benefits to both you and your baby's physical and mental health. Considering jogger prams are not suitable for use with newborns (and many experts suggesting parents should wait until their baby is at least a year old to go out jogging to ensure their necks are strong enough), what are some safe exercises that parents can do whilst bub is still a newborn?
We sat down with Alana Toohill who runs some incredible pram friendly exercise classes to run you through her top workout tips!
it is always important to stretch and cool down both before and after exercising. Stretching out your quadriceps is great, and really helpful to use the pram to support your balance. I also like to lean towards the pram, doing a reaching lateral side and lower back stretch, and this is another great way to lean in and chat with your little one.
