A Home Cardio Workout for Fit Mums |

 

Here is a safe, simple, and very effective Cardio workout that you can do at home, without equipment, and in a small place!

The workout is perfect from 6 Months postpartum and up to approx. 20 weeks pregnant. However, there are modifications; If you are pregnant/early postnatal instead of the burpees, there is an option to repeat the squats. It’s important you follow at your own pace and fitness level, you can pause and take breaks as and when you need too. 

I would also suggest that however many weeks/months postpartum you are you have followed our Birth2FitMum program or one similar for 6- 8 weeks. Also if you have any Pelvic Floor Function issues stick to the low impact options. 

There are TEN Exercises, Complete 1 min of each so depending on your time and fitness level, you have an option of a 10, 20, or 30 min home CARDIO workout!

Remember to do all the exercises at your own pace, fitness level, and pregnancy/postnatal stage/core function.
