Exercises to tighten and strengthen the glutes, core and hips after childbirth.

Here is a sneak peak of an article I wrote for Breaking Muscle Magazine about rehabilitating the hips, core and glutes after having a baby. These exercises are essential for every mother to do after giving birth to ensure the muscles are correctly tightened and strengthened to ensure a proper functioning body and balanced muscles. 

Many mothers experience back pain and pelvic pain and have a gap in between their abs known as Diastasis Recti. These exercises will help heal the pelvis, strengthen the glutes, stretch out the lower back that has been compressed for so long due to the forward pelvic tilt and tighten the abs. 

Twisting from side to side with a ball in the knees works the adductors and core and is a good stretch for the the lower back.

Arm and leg extensions work the core for balancing as well as the hamstrings, glutes, upper back and rear delts.
