My 11th Day postpartum I went for another long walk and started some arm strengthening. You’ll need some free weights for these exercises, but if you don’t have any just grab some full 16 oz water bottles, cans of soup, etc for resistance. You’ll want to start with lighter weights than you may be used to – especially if you had a C-section (you should not be lifting more than about 10lbs)! Please join me in toning those arms and preventing shoulder injuries from carrying all that heavy baby equipment!
If at any time you start getting sore shoulders, wrists or neck, dont hesitate to contact me for help.
