POST-PREGNANCY LOWER BODY WORKOUT! .
Where my new Mommas at!? These exercises are all from PHASE 1, WEEK 1 of my Post-Pregnancy program! (There are also 4 beginner weeks, you are placed at your starting week depending upon your activity level prior to and during pregnancy). The goal post natal is to help your body HEAL and regain strength SAFELY, so it's not about speed, but about specific exercises done correctly. When your core is properly engaged these are more challenging than they look.😉👊🏼
12 Weighted Calf Raises
12 Pelvic Curls*
20 Heel Slides
Repeat 4x! .
*It's important to note that the Pelvic CURL is a little different to a Glute Bridge. Here are your cues:
Step 1 • Start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your knees and position your feet firmly on the mat, ensuring that they are hip-width apart and your spine is in a neutral position. Allow your arms to rest by your sides on the mat. This is your starting position. Step 2 • Inhale. Set your T-zone.
Exhale. Press your heels into the mat, tuck your pubic bone towards your belly button and raise your pelvis off the mat. Raise your spine off the mat one vertebrae at a time until your body forms one straight line from chin to knee, resting on your shoulders. Step 3 • Inhale. Hold. Exhale. Lower your spine onto the mat one vertebrae at a time, followed by your pelvis. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions. .
Happy sweating!!🤗👊🏼 www.kelseywells.com/app
