Gym, schmym* – here are four ways you can get strong new-mum-stylee

Look (UK) - - LOOK FIT -

whether you’re Queen bey­oncé of hol­ly­wood or sarah from staines, ex­perts rec­om­mend avoid­ing ex­er­cise for up to six weeks fol­low­ing birth – or 12 weeks if you’ve had a c-sec­tion – then tak­ing it slowly. that means no per­sonal train­ers – yes, even you, bey. but if you’re gag­ging to stretch your legs (and get your new­born off to sleep), get started with some buggy-based moves. Just add a pram… 1 start slow A gen­tle 10-minute walk to the park /cof­fee shop oughta do it. Make sure you lis­ten to your body. Bonus: fresh af­ter­noon air will help ba­bies sleep at night as well as boost­ing your own sero­tonin lev­els. 2 BUGGY up… Grad­u­ally up your walks from 20to40to 60 min­utes four times per week. Want to work your arms, bum and stom­ach harder? Head for the hills (or the near­est small in­cline). 3 …then BUDDY up Fit­ness First’s lat­est sur­vey says mil­len­nial women are more likely to ex­er­cise for longer if they have a work­out wing­woman. En­list a friend who’s keen to keep fit and set reg­u­lar day dates. 4 Go BACK to CLASS Try Bug­gy­fit, a na­tion­wide class run by mums who want to up their fit­ness and strength mi­nus the child­care. Classes in­clude squats, lunges and push-ups while you talk and walk.
