I recently realized I do not have a lot of postpartum workout videos on my YouTube channel. The reason is that after Tommy, I didn’t know what I was doing! I wanted to go through postpartum recovery to know what did and did not work before shilling out advice. You can take a course but you don’t fully understand it until you go through it on your own.
That being said, here is an at home workout you can do with a pair of medium dumbbells. It’s 10 minutes long but I challenge you to do the routine twice through. You can also do it without following along, see below the video for details. If you aren’t sure how to do a move, watch the video!
