I love discovering women like Julie @ourfitfamilylife on IG! She just had her second baby and has great ideas for staying fit and strong with your family 💪🏻💕Here's a safe pregnancy and postpartum workout from her page - check her out! #fitmamaoftheweek #momcrush -------------------------------
Try each move for 12-16 reps for 4-5 rounds with a small rest in between

Finding the time to workout can be difficult so I try to be as efficient as possible when I exercise. In this case, I grabbed a pair of medium weight dumbbells and tried to make each move hit at least two areas (upper, lower, core). The last exercise in this circuit was inspired by a video from @fit_n_flow - I'm loving her account! So many fun and easy workouts from home (thanks Wendy!) #fullbodyworkout #getoutside #outdoorworkout #nogymnoproblem

Try each move for 10 reps on each side, rest for 20 seconds and go for 3 rounds!
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: You can easily turn this in to a Tabata workout! Usually if I have 6-10 exercises that are full body I like to make it #tabata - so 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off....6-8 rounds with a 30 second rest in between each exercise 💪🏻

Broke out the ankle weights! I got mine at @marshalls last week super cheap (how have I never been shopping here before?!) Such inexpensive workout attire and gear! Check them out if you have one near you 😉 #getoutside #outdoorworkout #nogymnoproblem

Try each move for 10-12 reps on each leg, rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds! ------------------------------------------
💫TIP: All these moves engage the core so as you're moving your legs, think about tightening and bringing in your transverse abdominals (the deepest of the abdominal muscles that wraps around the abdomen between the lower ribs and top of the pelvis, acting like a corset). As always, for those postpartum mommas -- if you ever see coning in your belly, stop the move and modify -- the last thing you want to do as your body heals from childbirth is strain your core😖

Upper body workout! Thanks to @thexbands for these awesome #suspensionstraps 💪🏻Be sure to keep the straps taught throughout each exercise!
#igfitmoms #fitmomsofig #postpartumfitness #postpartumworkout #momof3 ------------------------------------------
Try each move for 10-15 reps, rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: If you're able to, make the investment in some suspension straps! They're so easy to use, light to carry and you can do ANYTHING with them. It's also great for pre and post natal fitness because you can easily modify any exercise 😉👍🏻

I hope to make my own workout guides soon - but in the mean time - I love discovering awesome #fitmoms like @nana_health 💕💪🏻I've been following her account and using her guides on and off for the past two years and LOVE her👏🏻This is a tidbit of a #tabata routine (slightly modified) from her recent guide #igfitmoms #fitmomsofig #postpartumfitness #postpartumworkout #momof3 ------------------------------------------
Try each move 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for 8 rounds! Rest for 30 seconds in between each exercise. This is less than 30 minutes and it's a full body burner🔥
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: The key with Tabata workouts is to keep moving! If you feel your mind wonder and start to give up, DON'T! Just modify -- drop the weights, drop a knee, whatever you need to do - just keep moving!

I'm finally starting to get into a fitness routine at the lake 💪🏻Now I just need to start filming more to share some ideas with you! I've been falling behind in my posts😬This was a great #fullbodyworkout I did that requires #noequipment and you can knock it out in under 30 minutes! #getoutside #outdoorworkout #homeexercises #postpartumworkout ------------------------------------------
Try each move for 10 reps (each side), rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds!
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: Working out as a mom with young kids can be tough but I've found that if you stop overthinking it and just MOVE whenever you have a small window (10 minutes counts!) you'll feel better. It's all about taking the first step - start creating a habit, make it fun and you'll see changes faster than you expect 😉👍🏻

I'm officially out at our lake for the summer and I couldn't be happier 🛶☀️Here are some core moves you can try to start rebuilding your abs after having a baby. I started these moves around 3 months postpartum and I would recommend you only begin these if you are able to keep your belly flat with each movement. Thanks to @drkellyfitmomof4 and her #absafterbabies guide for some of these movements! #getoutside #outdoorworkout #homeexercises #postpartumworkout ------------------------------------------
Try each move for 30 seconds go for 2 rounds!
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: If you see any coning in your belly as your trying these moves, pull it back and modify. The last thing you want to do after giving birth is overwork your core muscles - this can build your belly out instead of in 💪🏻😉

I've been missing my #Bosu! Using equipment that throws off your balance can elevate your workout to a whole new level! You'll be engaging more muscles, especially core, to keep your movements controlled and fluid 👍🏻#homeexercises #postpartumworkout ------------------------------------------
Try each move for 10 reps (each leg), rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds!
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: Take is SLOW with the Bosu, it's about control and balance, not speed. Also, for the second move, I found that pulling my knees in with my arms created less strain on my abs and when you rise up, think about pushing through your heels 💪🏻

Tabata workout! ⚡️#tabata #homeexercises #postpartumworkout ------------------------------------------
There are 6 moves in this circuit (the last move counts as two, because you need to work each leg separately) - so perform each exercise 20 seconds on and 10 seconds rest for 8 rounds. Rest for 30 seconds and move on to next exercise - you got this! 💪🏻
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: For all of you postpartum mommas out there - if you're not ready for center jumping yet, just step in/in/out/out for the fourth exercise 😉

Full body bench workout! #benchworkout #outdoorworkout #homeexercises #postpartumworkout ------------------------------------------
Try each move for 10 reps (each leg), rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds!
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: For the third move, jumping up to the bench - be sure to keep your core engaged as you lift off and exhale. You'd be surprised how much you use your abdominals for this move! 😉💪🏻

No weights? Got a baby? Try this little mat series for a full body burn! 💪🏻👶🏼 #homeexercises #postpartumworkout ------------------------------------------
Try each move for 10 reps on each side, rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds!
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: For the second move, I'm staying very low (almost like a micro crunch) and focusing on keeping my belly in the entire time. If you feel your belly protruding in any way, skip it! I've been building up my core strength the last few weeks so I felt ready for this but some of you won't

These 6 moves are going to work your glutes, shoulders and core. Mixing upper and lower body will give you a nice full body burn and keep your mind working since you need to stabilize more with each movement #iwillwhatiwant #homeexercises #postpartumworkout #diastasisrecti
------------------------------------------
Try each move for 10 reps with each leg, rest for 20 seconds and go for 4 rounds
------------------------------------------
💫TIP: Think about your core with ALL of these moves - you'll be surprised by how much you actually need to work to stay balanced with all these exercises. When you have a mind to muscle connection, that muscle will work harder and more efficiently so focus on those abs!
