Alison's Fitness Tips for New Moms
1. Be patient -- take your time getting back into the gym.
2. Focus on your core -- lunges and push-ups are great for your abdominal muscles.
3. Quality over quantity -- it doesn't matter how many push-ups you do, as long as you do them correctly. Over time, you'll build up the strength to do more of them.
3. Mix up your workout routine
4. No excuses! If you can't afford a gym membership, you can do something as simple as jumping jacks and burn plenty of calories.
5. Begin and end each workout with stretching
6. Schedule time to exercise
**Please be sure to consult your physician before starting any exercise regimen.
