Jamie Eason's 12-Week Post-Pregnancy Trainer Day 52
Put down the baby and pick up some iron. It's time to work that upper body!
The last thing you feel like doing after picking up a baby all day is picking up a barbell, but the strength you gain will come in handy in the coming months. As your baby grows&mdashand gets heavier—your upper body will need to be stronger. As tempting as it may be to skip a workout, don't! Your body will thank you.
Focus on using the correct muscles on each exercise (click on each one for guidelines on which body part you should be targeting). If you find yourself using other muscles to compensate, consider reducing the weight you're using, to ensure proper form.
