I am starting a HIIT class for moms? I am planning on doing timed intervals and running through a series of exercises, ie. push ups, burpees, jump squats, etc. but I need a pocket full of modification exercises for those that may have need injuries or just getting back to exercise after having a baby. Any ideas????
Everyone will be different, so there is are no cure all modifcations. I usually don’t recommend jump squats or burpees for overweight trainees. If performing burpees, I would start people off by placing 1 leg back at a time, and the same coming forward. Likewise, jump squats might be easier on them if performed on a mat, perhaps along the lines of a gymnastics mat.
Aside from that, I’m sure that you could find some articles on this site regarding postpartum training. I am no expert in this area, so I will defer to others for specific advice in this area.
