Do not forget that exercise, doctors recommend two months after birth, starting with the minimum and gradually increasing the load. For moms who have had a cesarean section, the beginning of training is delayed for a longer period.
The most simple and effective exercises - pushups. Arms bent at the elbows, knees. Try feeding, rather than the chin touching the floor (back straight, do not bend!). Start with so many repetitions, with a can, and add a day at a time. Next, a more "advanced" version of this exercise - not your elbows out to the sides, and are parallel to the torso.
You can also alternate push-ups with other exercises. Starting position: lying down, feet wider than shoulders, feet rest on the toes, arms straight in front of him. You raise your shoulders, keeping the blade, then return to the starting position.
If push-ups are hard, there is a simple, but no less effective exercise. Put feet shoulder-width apart, elbows to the sides (prayer pose), palm pinch right in front of the chest and squeeze them struggling for 20 seconds. Relax and repeat this exercise several times a day for 30-40 repetitions.
You can also take the expander or dumbbells. Lie on your back, take a dumbbell, arms out to the side. Then connect them on yourself, spend 2 series of 10 times. Next to its original position: hands with dumbbells over head. You pick them up and connect to the waist, over the other. Another option: hands free to lie on the floor, then lift them above his head and lower back. Do 2 sets of 10 times.
With expanders can also engage standing, placing elbows parallel to the floor and stretching his hands as much as possible. Alternatively, you can lie down, picking up the expander and stretching it lying down, and the lower will be the hands, the harder it will exercise. And you get double the result: it simultaneously with the muscles you train chest and arm muscles!
