This post-natal core conditioning exercise DVD will help new moms meet the challenges of reconditioning the body after pregnancy. Two progressive fitness band workout routines will help post-natal women safely build their core strength and stability and recondition their abdominal muscles.
This post-natal exercise DVD quickly and safely builds core strength and dynamic stability with simple yet powerful exercises specifically designed to meet the challenges of reconditioning the body after pregnancy. Featuring two progressive fitness band workout routines-band included free inside package-that can be started just days after giving birth.
The first workout, "Gentle First Moves" (30 min) provides safe restorative exercises that speed recovery from labor and delivery and relieve pain. The second workout, "Bounce Back Fast!" (35 min) reconditions all four layers of the abdominal wall, closes abdominal separation, corrects posture, restores flexibility and builds upper body strength for lifting and carrying. An alternate workout routine features special exercise modifications for those with abdominal separation.
This post-natal exercise DVD also provides important bonus materials that explain the special challenges of post-natal reconditioning, demonstrate crucial post pregnancy abdominal wall training techniques, detail how to recondition pelvic floor muscles, and show how to test for and correct abdominal separation.
Designed and led by perinatal exercise specialist and author Helene Byrne, both workout routines can easily be completed while the baby is napping and feature actual postpartum women. Suitable for all fitness levels.
