The Best Postpartum Exercise

The Best Postpartum Exercise
by: Beverley Brooke

Would you like to know the best exercises are after your delivery? When it comes to post pregnancy weight loss, no two exercises are alike!

In the time frame immediately after pregnancy, you will probably want to stick with light activities such as walking or flexibility training. Stretching will help keep your body limber and help the blood circulate through your body, causing you to feel more refreshed as the day goes by.

A few weeks after pregnancy and delivery however, you can engage in some more vigorous activities. Here are our top suggestions:

- Yoga/Tai Chi

- Aerobic Exercise

- Running/Jogging

- Swimming

- Walking

- Elliptical/Stair Climbing

- Hiking

- Strength training

Basically anything you do to keep your body moving will help you burn those pesky calories and thus lose your pregnancy weight. There are even some exercises that you can do with your baby. Get out the stroller for example and go for a walk with your newborn. You will appreciate the fresh air and the physical activity.

There are also many classes that are now available for moms with new babies. Check your local recreation center or gym for more details. You can also play running and jumping games with your baby as you grow together.
