Postpartum workouts: Moving on to splits.

I gave myself six full weeks after the baby came to rest and recover. The sole amount of activity I did was walks after two weeks, very light tempo runs after 3 weeks, and yoga around the same time. It was decision I had made long before he came. I was going to enjoy my […]

Workout Wednesday: Baby Yoga.

The week that I was cleared to finally start hitting the weights again, I started getting my feet, or, well, body, back into yoga. I was super tight from six weeks of doing nada, and I was also getting sore from it too. I had heard of Mommy and Me yoga before, but it wasn’t […]

WW: Double Lift Weights Faster.

I have felt very heavy today. It seems that Baby Rebel has decided to lay at the bottom of my stomach all day long, giving me the feeling that I’m carrying around a 50-pound stone. To top it off, it’s snowing, heavily, my gym closed early today like they do the day before EVERY holiday, […]
