Prenatal & Postpartum Training Fan
The Prenatal & Postpartum Training Fan by Annette Lang is a comprehensive resource for prenatal or postpartum women already cleared by their health care provider for participation in a fitness program. Featuring two full-body strength workouts, the first has nine exercises that are simple, isolated moves. The second workout has six exercises that require integrating movement by using multiple muscle groups at the same time. With a focus on core stability and pelvic integrity, each exercise has both a simplified and advanced variation as well as second- and third-trimester modifications.
The Prenatal & Postpartum Fan offers step-by-step illustrated instructions, including:
- Q & A addressing common concerns
- How to modify exercise from trimester to trimester
- The best cardio exercises for prenatal women
- How to properly strengthen abs—before, during and after pregnancy
- Stretches for muscles that can get tight during pregnancy
- When it’s safe to get started with exercise after delivery
- How to get back into shape and lose weight after pregnancy
