New Workouts

If you’ve always wanted to try a boxing workout – now is your chance! These new workouts are perfect for new mums like Fiona Falkiner, or anyone else getting into fitness! They’re super easy to follow and each session is just the right length of time (ideal to do between feeds and rests with a new bub.)

As our incredible boxing trainer Laura Greenwood tells us “Boxing workouts make us feel EMPOWERED”.

She says “Boxing is great for your sanity! You can punch out a hard day! It makes you feel strong capable and confident.”

“Boxing is great because it uses our upper body and core more which we tend to need to strengthen more after having children.”

New Mum Fiona Falkiner  has been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for several month since the birth of her son Hunter 6 months ago in order to get her health back on track.

She LOVED taking part in the workouts with Laura and said they the exact length and intensity she needed.

Fiona said, I felt pretty hot I definitely got my sweat on lol but it felt really good! And what I always focus on to motivate myself to train is that incredible feeling you get after a work out is done, your body is flooded with endorphins, for me it clears the fog, I feel so energised and ready to face the day!!! So yes after the session I felt amazing!!! And I loved training with Laura she has such a great energy about her!” 

There are 6 new Boxing Workouts – all ranging between 10 – 16 minutes.

1. Beginner Boxing: Cardio Box
2. Beginner Boxing: Tabata Total Body

Medical Disclosure for new mums

If you are a new mums and want to start exercising again get clearance from your doctor or Obstetrician. Mums who have had a cesarean would ideally be looking at a minimum 6-8 weeks after birth to commence these workouts. For a standard birth with no complications leave 4-6 weeks post birth before starting this program.

Things to be aware of when commencing exercises after giving birth:

  • The ‘Warm Up’ is important when getting back into exercise and the key is to do this slowly, to be sure not to over stretch or do too “bouncy” a warm up and switch on your tummy muscles to support your back.
  • Th hormone Relaxin is still in your body, especially if you are breast feeding, and this can make your limbs extra flexible and mobile, which isn’t always a good thing when exercising  as you can over extend yourself and this can cause injuries.
  • Separation in the abdomen occurs in the majority of woman during pregnancy, regardless of whether they have had a cesarean or standard birth. The whole abdominal area has been stretched and it takes time to go back to its pre baby state (if at all!).

Exercises generally require the use and activation of the abs and new mums do not want to over exert that by doing too much at the start until the separation either heels or stabilizes. Definitely no full sit ups!

If you experience any bleeding, pain, leakages or heaviness in your abdomen or uterus, or just feel that something isn’t ‘right’ doing some of the workout, please stop the exercises and see your doctor immediately.
