Question: I had a C-Section 8 months before and I put on 15 kg post delivery,.is it good to join gym now or aerobics?



Answer: I am a specialist in exercise Therapy. Please consider the below recommendations.

During pregnancy the uterus stimulates the release of the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and relaxin. These hormones cause an increase in the laxity of the ligaments and all soft tissues.

Current research suggests that conditioning programs of moderate intensity help maintain fitness levels and ideal body weight, and fat levels. DONT LIFT HEAVY !! Training should be implemented using the following criteria: proper exercise prescription, safety of programming, convenience, and fun. You can start with Light weight but do more repetitions in weight training to maintain the intensity. COMBINE BOTH WORLDS OF AEROBICS AND STRENGTH TRAINING, GO TO A GYM. take into consideration the pre-pregnancy exercise status . If you have been sedentary, then starting off with low-level aerobic training on machines such as the upper body ergo meter or a recumbent bike are beneficial.
