RESTORE your CORE
Strengthen those stretched post-pregnancy muscles with simple exercises and your baby’s help, says Vern Hill
When you become a mum, you find yourself doing a lot more bending, lifting and carrying. But to carry out these movements your body relies on core muscles, which may have been strained by pregnancy. These five exercises from the CARiFiT routine strengthen your abdominal, back, hip and pelvic floor muscles, which act like a corset to support your spine. Not only will you find bending easier, you’ll protect against back pain and restore your post-birth body. And you can do all these low-impact exercises wearing your baby in a front carrier.
