Workout Wednesday | Great Posture for New Moms

New mothers have all sorts of postural and core challenges thrown at them when feeding, carrying, cuddling and generally looking after a new baby. So this week’s workout is designed to strengthen your body to cope with ‘off centre’ load and develops strength in those crucial holding muscles!

Watch your form, keep the movements smooth and controlled and focus on your posture and core activation throughout. Core activation is no good if you can only do it whilst static so once you have mastered your breathing and activation give this workout a go!

This one’s tough so really focus on movement quality and great posture! You are aiming here for 10 back to back reps of each move…30 in total before resting for 1 minute and you are aiming to repeat the circuit 4 times.

  1.  Side squat and bicep curl
  2. Wide squat and row
  3.  Twisting lunge with bicep curl
