For some, getting your 6 pack back (or maybe nice abs for the first time ever) after pregnancy may seem like an impossible task. But it can be done! Hopefully you maintained a healthy lifestyle throughout pregnancy and didn’t “eat for two” or gain 50 extra pounds of fat. If you did gain a lot of extra weight, your job of looking good after pregnancy will be much harder, but again, it can be done!
So, what does it take? Five thousand crunches? A crash diet? No! Here are eight simple core exercises to help you get nice abs after pregnancy! Do these exercise in combination with cardio and other strength training moves. This is a mini clip from my (very) rough draft exercise DVD (so don’t pay attention to the poor film quality and mess ups 🙂 Also, my abs aren’t perfect yet, but I’m getting close, and my daughter is only 4 months old 🙂
If your want your pre-pregnancy abs (or body) back, you must commit to consistent daily exercise – period. There is no easy, “8 minutes per day and get a perfect body” fix! Stay motivated, dig deep, find a time everyday when you can get your workout in. For me, my personal workout happens in the morning when it is still dark out. I can get my exercise in before my 4 month old even wakes up. That might be what it takes for you as well. Make it happen!
