Postpartum Exercise Timeline

Hello ladies! I’ve been meaning to share more postpartum pics but pumping to feed twins…and catching cat naps…has pretty much taken over my life šŸ˜‚.

In the meantime, I found this postpartum workout timeline and I would say, from experience, that it’s pretty on track with a general postpartum recovery. I know that I have jumped the gun in the past by starting to run around 6 weeks after delivery and I suffered for it (incontinence + knee tendonitis), BUT…everyone is different! And each pregnancy is different. This chart is a good guideline for easing back into the fitness realm and the author has some good things to say on it over at Anchored Mommy.

As for now, I am antsy to begin working out again (today I am 11 weeks postpartum), so I will be doing a low-impact HIIT routine that I designed a couple of years ago. Let me know if there’s any interest, and I can share that on here as well!
