Training 5 pitfalls to avoid

Training: Trap 1-start training too hard

One of the best ways to get back to training is to never have to stop during pregnancy! But it is well known, many women reduce their activities during this period of their lives, rather than embark on a furious jog that may cause exhaustion with the possibility of unnecessary injuries, the first step of fitness is necessary and his going through? walking, quite simply. We take out our stroller (without leaning on it while walking) and we make small steps fast, short and light. Gradually, we can increase the rate and duration of the journey and the metabolism of each.

Training: Trap 2 Go it alone

Being surrounded by professionals is a must when it comes to starting postpartum fitness. At first, if you notice urinary leakage or discomfort of the pelvic area, do not hesitate to consult a

prioritizing and working on self-confidence and self-reflection on one's state of mind before starting workout are all part of a holistic approach to health that has a higher chance of success.

Training: Trap 5 Train for the wrong reasons

And if we ask ourselves the question about the real reasons for its fitness? remove the tummy, lose weight, firm up your body or succeed in a competitive challenge are all motivations frequently mentioned, but take time for yourself and reconnect with the body that has just given birth, it's also that, the training? and the chances that our efforts will last over time are higher if we do it for the right reasons and the right way
