As mothers, after our baby is born, many of us are unsure how to lose the baby weight and get into the shape we want to be in. If you’re like me, you may be uncertain about which exercises are safe to do immediately after your baby is born, when he/she is a couple weeks old, when they’re a couple months old, when they’re done nursing, etc.
You can’t just start into a heavy workout routine without building your body back up first. Trying to do so, can lead to internal tearing of your muscles, displacement of your organs, increased back pain, weakened pelvic muscles, and more!
There is a proper way to build your body back up and a set of exercises/techniques you can use at each stage of your recovery process and Wendy Powell’s Mutu System is a great program that helps you through the entire process!
Wendy explains in great detail what your body goes through postpartum. Why so many women suffer from diastasis recti, why pregnancy weakens your pelvic floor muscles, your back, your hips and so much more.
As she explains what changes your body goes through during pregnancy, she also teaches you how to be aware of each aspect of your body and the science behind the proper way to heal it.
As I’ve mentioned in other posts she too states firmly that a girdle or a splint will not heal your postpartum body. It can’t heal diastasis recti or make your pelvic muscles stronger. They should be used in conjunction with the proper diet plan and the right workout program to achieve the best results possible.
I’ve written a comprehensive review of Wendy’s MuTu System for all mothers who are looking for guidance in a diet plan or workout program to help them get into shape postpartum. If you have any additional questions or comments please leave them in the comment box below!
