Hi All,
It's been 12 weeks post birth and I'm keen to get back into an exercise routine.
Pre baby i was running a couple of times a week, and going to different Gymbox classes, mainly core focussed.

I'm not going to rejoin the gym for now due to travel distance and cost, so looking for exercises i can do at home.

Thinking 30 days of yoga but not sure if it's too much on the stomach too soon. Any good Pilates online recommendations would be appreciated.

Also, is it to soon for running?

Did you have a c-section? Also if you have diastasis recti I wouldn't recommend core exercises until it has improved as you'd make it worse.

I'd be inclined to start with cardio and wait a while before doing body weight exercises as your body might still be recovering, but do what you feel comfortable with, you'll know if it doesn't feel right yet!

I think running should be fun, you might just want to start off slowly and work your way up!

Good luck smile
