Working out after baby?!

I had a behemoth of a child so I had to get an emergency C-section. I’m 3 months PP but still hurts when I try to work my mom abs and my pelvis aches when I try running. I’m use to be really active so it’s frustrating dealing with my now achey body. Any other mamas? What workouts worked? How long till my body stops hurting?!

Every body is different! I worked out my entire pregnancy and was NOT ready to be back to serious work outs till 5 months. I wasn’t sleeping and it was just too much for my body, so I did yoga. The idea that we need to jump back into working out is INSANE. We all need to give our minds and bodies a break.

I’ve had 2 c-sections and the recovery was very different each time so I wouldn’t go by others’ experiences. Just be patient with your body and give it time to heal. You just had major surgery!

I went back 2 .5 weeks post partum.. I have been doing crossfit for 4 years and kept going from start to the day I was induced on memorial day. I am 7 mo pp and still getting better today each day.

I had a c section and began really slowly with specific ab workouts that target transverse abs. If you search for some transverse ab movements. Do those for a couple weeks before moving into other stuff. It helps build your internal core strength which will help with all the aches. Go slow and build on them each day. Never do things that actually hurt.
