After giving birth to the baby, the belly did not obediently retract as expected, but was large and loose! Looking at my own belly, I am so worried! Excuse me, how can I get rid of the excess abdominal fat? Can you restore the previous tightness of the abdomen?
New mothers are eager to lose weight after giving birth. However, it should be remembered that since it took you 40 weeks to gain extra weight, it may take you another 40 weeks to lose it. Therefore, during the initial postpartum period, it is important not to rush. It is important to take good care of your body and allow your organs to fully recover before engaging in appropriate healthy weight loss activities!
The reason for postpartum abdominal obesity: Most postpartum mothers have an abdomen that looks as large as a 5-month pregnancy in the first day, because the uterus is still swollen and has not fully recovered. After 3-18 months, the uterus will gradually recover.
However, due to the excessive elongation and extension of the abdominal wall muscles during fetal growth and development in the uterus, there will be a substantial decrease in muscle elasticity, resulting in severe abdominal muscle relaxation. Without exercise, the elasticity of the abdominal wall muscles cannot be restored. In order to achieve better body shape recovery, the simplest, most economical, most effective, and no side effects body shape recovery strategy is to do abdominal exercises that are beneficial for exercising abdominal muscles as soon as possible after childbirth:
1. Lie on your back in bed, bend your knees, place your palms flat on the bed, and place your hands on your abdomen for deep breathing exercises, with your stomach bulging and retracting.
2. Lie on your back in bed, hold the back of your head with both hands, lift your chest and abdomen slightly, and move your legs up and down alternately, from small to large, from slow to fast, for about 50 consecutive movements.
3. Lie on your back in bed, hold the bed railing with both hands, and lift your legs up together. Do not bend your knees, and keep your toes straight. It is best to reach a 90 degree angle between your legs and your body. After lifting up, stop for a while before falling down. Repeat this process until your abdomen becomes sore.
4. Place your hands on both sides of your body, support the bed with your hands, bend your knees, press your palms against the bed, and lift your hips up as much as possible. After lifting them up, stop and fall for 4 seconds. Rest for a while before lifting them up.
5. Place your hands on both sides of your body, and try to lift your legs up as much as possible. Lift them up like a bicycle and take turns pedaling until your legs become sore.
6. Stand by the bed, hold the bed with both hands, step back with your feet, align your body in a straight line, bend your forearms, and press your body down. After stopping for two or three seconds, straighten your forearms and lift your body up. Repeat this process for 5-15 times.
7. One leg stands on the ground, supporting the weight of the entire body, while the other leg is bent and lifted. Then, use the leg that supports the body to jump continuously, each time 20-30 times, alternating between the two legs until the leg is sore.
Doing fitness exercises requires persistence in order to be effective. Every time you do it, use force and make the movements home. When doing this, one should feel the muscles stretching and contracting vigorously.
