What Types of Exercise are Safe?
While you focus on aerobic exercises, don’t forget strength training, too. It’s best to do them twice weekly. Aerobic activities are those that move your large muscles in a rhythmic approach. Strength training, which incorporates resistance to build strength, is commonly connected to lifting weights.
The idea is to ease into more intensive workouts. Initially, you can focus on light stretching and walking. Afterward, particularly when you’re healed, you may start on abdominal workouts and pelvic exercises.
Please ask your doctor more about the abdominal and pelvic exercises suitable for you at the moment. You see, pregnancy splits your abdominal muscles down the middle. Before any vigorous tummy workout, you must first make sure that your muscles have already healed.
The following are safe postpartum exercise types, because they are generally gentle and do not often involve rapid changes in position:
- Brisk walking
- Water exercises and swimming
- Light weight training
