Carrying over from last days post regarding exercise progressions, and Not Running before Walking.

This may have caused more confusion as where to start exercising as a new mom.  Follow these simple rules.

1. Stabilize or Re-stabilize your joints before starting an intense exercise program.

2. Fix old/new injuries that may have flared up with pregnancy, delivery, lack of sleep or activity.  Use the trouble shooting guide in the Baby Bump Busy Mom Fitness program.  Seek help form a practitioner if needed- RMT, Physiotherapist, chiropractic.  Get a reputable personal trainer or strength coach if you need further help.

Q.  OK so how do I know now if I am ready for regular exercise?

A.  Try the exercises in the video below as well as the Furious 5 on my You tube channel.  If these exercises are manageable without aches and pains and you have no other outstanding issues, you should be ready to start.


For a new mom carrying around a new baby for the next 2.5 years can be taxing on your body.  You are now using your arms, shoulder, abs trying to carry a unpredictable moving baby.  I am posting a video with 2 of my favourite exercises to help with neck and shoulder discomfort associated with carrying a baby as well as one abdominal activation exercise that is safe for rectis diastases.  Enjoy.  Jut click on the blank space below to link to the video on you tube.

Thank you! My youngest of three is now 2 1/2 and I’m the weight I want to be, but not the shape. The muffin top is annoying. I’m planning on tackling it more aggressively this summer. I’ll check out your videos.

Elle, enjoy the process of stabilizing and restrengthening. It’s something personal for you and I get it Rome wasn’t built in a day.
