Fastest Way To Regain Your Figure And Fitness After Having A Baby

I’ve consulted with dozens of female clients over the years who were frustrated with not being able to lose their pregnancy weight and regain their figure.

99% of the time, the problem wasn’t due to the fact they weren’t exercising. Most women realize they have to include exercise if they want to lose post-pregnancy body fat. But what type of exercise really does makes all the difference…

The biggest fitness mistake women make with exercise after having a baby…

When women try to get in shape after having a baby, they tend to typically just do cardio along with some sort of a diet. While some women will do Pilates and yoga for regaining core strength, very few focus on resistance training.

There are numerous reasons why women leave out the resistance training, all of which are normally misconceptions.

The bottom line is lean muscle development through SOME form of resistance training is essential in any post-pregnancy fat loss program.

If you’re looking for the absolute fastest way to regain your shape, look no further than HIT resistance training, or burst training.

HIT stands for “High Intensity Training”. The principals behind HIT training are working your major muscle groups at high levels of intensity for short periods of time. We call these “bursts,” hence the name burst training.

After the burst, you give your muscles a short rest and then go hard again with another exercise. When HIT is done right, your muscles get an overload stimulus very quickly and the results are amazing.

HIT training’s biggest benefit is that it also helps create the optimal hormonal balances for fat loss to happen.

The short bursts of high intensity effort help to increase secretion of powerful fat burning hormones like growth hormone, adrenaline, and nor-adrenaline.

HIT also involves primarily compound movements done in a “functional manner” meaning they involve strengthening the core muscles. This is particularly beneficial for women post-pregnancy.

Cardio training with dieting is not effective for creating a body transformation post-pregnancy and can actually be counter-productive. The problem with lots of cardio and calorie restriction diets is that it’s real easy to slow down your metabolism and sacrifice lean muscle on this strategy.

This is exactly the opposite of what you want to be doing. The idea is to INCREASE your metabolism post-pregnancy and add lean muscle so you’re better at burning fat.

If you use HIT or burst training, your workouts will only take 30 minutes to complete and can produce far greater results than traditional hour long workouts. The choice is yours….the fast track or traditional, slow, frustrating way to lose weight and regain your shape.
