Christina Sinclair of Beach Babe Fitness in Orange County demonstrates this easy postnatal exercise for moms. The certified fitness instructor and mom will help you feel better than ever in no time. Bonus: You can do this workout while your baby naps.
This back extension exercise will help strengthen your lower back, which can help reduce lower back pain (a common symptom during and after pregnancy). It’s also a great way open the front side of your body, including your hips and chest, which get pulled forward when you hold and feed your baby. The result: A more balanced body! And isn’t it nice to finally lie on your belly again?!
