When to begin

How to get rid of envy to the girlfriends who quickly grew thin after the delivery? Of course, having begun to play sports as soon as possible, but considering features of the state.

Experts recommend to begin to do exercises with small loadings already in a day after the delivery. It is so-called recovery gymnastics. If childbirth took place successfully, in the natural way, there were no significant gaps, bleedings and other complications, can safely start gymnastics already in maternity hospital. Still before you will get out of a bed, it is possible to do exercises for strengthening of muscles of a stomach (to me the nurse in maternity hospital helped to do these exercises).

the Main gymnastic exercises (squats, turns of the case, inclinations, moves hands) can begin to be engaged in

in two weeks after the birth of the kid when bloody allocations from a vagina decrease. During this period it is also possible to complicate exercises for muscles of a stomach and to begin exercises for strengthening of a breast.

the Exception are women to whom did Cesarean section, and who had strong gaps. In such cases consultation of the gynecologist concerning sports activities is simply necessary.

What is the time needs to be engaged in

and as often

three times a week on half an hour in day are Enough to play sports to feel results.

besides, breastfeeding thanks to production of milk already helps the woman with burning to 500 calories a day.

the Best time for exercises

Is recommended to play sports till a breakfast. Besides, do not forget that it is the best of all to do physical exercises at once after feeding of the child. In this case, even if a quantity of lactic acid in an organism will be allocated, it will already decrease to the following feeding (within two hours).

How to be engaged

needs to play Sports step by step. It is possible to increase the number of repetitions of one exercise for one every day (it was so easier for me to be engaged).

the Strengthened and long loadings can lead

to the fact that at you quality of breast milk can worsen (in an organism lactic acid which gives to breast milk unpleasant sour smack is emitted) or to decrease its quantity.



of the Dumbbell, the weight, exercise machines - all this is not recommended for the woman in the period of a lactation. Such loading is too strong during the postnatal period for the woman. Besides, occupations with dumbbells can affect quality and amount of breast milk.

after the delivery I tried to be engaged in

In a month a little with dumbbells, but quickly understood that it is too difficult for me. And, as it seemed to me, milk in a breast became less after such loadings.

the Fitball and a hoop, on the contrary, can be used. The hoop very well helps to make a waist more harmonous (it is checked on own experience).

If milk became less

It can occur from - for the fact that at occupations you lose liquids together with then too much, and drink a little. Therefore it is worth drinking more after classes. Compote from dried fruits (raisin, dried apricots and apples) best of all is suitable for this purpose. Try to reduce loading also a little.
