Hi there! I am 7 weeks post partum. Before I got pregnant I was 55kg and strength training and my PB'S (so you have an idea of where I was on the fitness journey) deadlift 100kg, Squat 65kg, Hipthrust 82kg for example. I LOVED working out. I want to get back on the lifting but I want to be gentle with my body. before any one asks GP's are rubbish with post partum care and advice. I have to trust my own body and in this case a community who also trusts their own bodies!! I want to get back into my strength training and wonder if any of you had your own journey or experience to draw upon regards:
1. How to build your program back up slowly whilst being mindful of the trauma your abs have suffered
2. PROTEIN SHAKES - safe for breastfeeding? I have a good healthy intake of protein in my diet but I know what worked for me previously to build muscle and what macros I was on.
3. Any links or resources you can point me to?
