Booty After Baby

Booty After Baby

Booty After Baby is a 4-month postpartum program designed to help moms retrain their core & pelvic floor, rebuild their strength, and reconnect to their body.

I don't know about you, but I wasn't warned about how sad my butt would be after giving birth. So instead of just sitting on it, I decided I'm going to get it back. Booty After Baby focuses on the reconnection to our postpartum bodies, with an emphasis on core and pelvic floor, so we can begin rebuilding our glutes.

SCHEDULE: This is a 4-month program (45 workouts total)
Weeks 1-3: 2 workouts a week (so you'll complete Workouts #1-#6)
Remaining weeks: 3 workouts a week

- a set of weights (I used 10 pound dumbbells, for reference)
- a short band
- a long band
- and a heavier weight (I used a 35 pound dumbbell, for reference)

  • Booty After Baby #1

    DAY ONE! Here we go, mamas. These first 6 workouts are going to be slow and steady as we work on gaining back mobility, strength, mind-to-muscle connection, and familiarity of moving our bodies again.
    This workout will be the slowest one we go through, but perhaps the most necessary. Today will i...

  • Booty After Baby #2

    You made it back to day 2! Way to go, mama. Everyday you show up is one more step to gaining your strength (and booty!) back.

    *You'll notice this video looks different after 12:25. That's because it is haha. Somehow, the last half of this workout got cut and I realized it 2 months too late. So, here it is completed--17 weeks postpartum!

    Workout by workout, we're adding more movements to strengthen our bodies up. My goa...

    We're bringing in more ROM (range of motion) now! During recovery (or if you're a beginner), it's best to start with smaller ROM's.
