Post-Natal Return to Running Workout
If you’ve had a baby and are looking to get back into (or start) running, this workout is for you. It will support you by focussing on improving your balance and build strength needed to run well.
This routine is designed for women who are 6 weeks+ post delivery and who have been signed-off to exercise again.
It is designed to aid your return to running, focusing on regaining your posture and balance as well as strengthening your core.
You’ll do eight exercises in total, with two rounds of the routine. There are easier and harder options given with guidance on how to progress. This is a low-impact, low-intensity workout.
Please work out to your current ability and stop while you are still able to maintain good form, rather than continuing until failure. This may mean stopping an exercise before the suggested number of reps given.
I strongly recommend seeing a women’s physiotherapist before you return to exercise.
You can find my 0-5k training guide helpful in returning to running.
I recommend using the NHS Squeezy app to help you strengthen your pelvic floor.
