How to lose the belly after childbirth?

To lose the belly after pregnancy it is recommended to follow a balanced and low-calorie diet, as well as perform an exercise routine that helps strengthen the abdomen and back to improve posture, avoiding back pain, which is very common after of the birth of the baby, due to poor posture during pregnancy and during breastfeeding.
You can start exercising to reduce fat from 20 days after normal delivery and 40 days after a cesarean section, or according to medical indications. Some exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles after pregnancy are:

Exercise 1

Lie on your back and raise your hip to the maximum height you get. Stay in this position for 1 minute and lower the hip. You must repeat the exercise 5 times.

Exercise 2

Lie on your back and keep the body in contact with the floor, raise both legs at the same time (as shown in the image above). You should keep your legs elevated for 1 minute while your abdomen muscles contract at the same time.
If necessary, you should raise or lower your legs slightly until you feel the abdominal contraction. Repeat the exercise 5 times.

Exercise 3

Stay in the position shown by the upper image for 1 minute. Then rest and repeat the exercise 5 more times.

Exercise 4

Perform the position shown in the upper image, keeping the legs together and the hip very low until almost reaching the floor. Next, the body must be lifted with the force of the arms, having to go up and down 12 times in a row. Repeat the exercise 2 times.
In addition to these exercises, it is important that women perform exercises to burn fat and lose weight faster, such as rollerblading, cycling, jogging or swimming.
It is important to seek the advice of a personal trainer, because he will perform a physical evaluation where he will indicate which are the most appropriate exercises depending on the objective of the person, since there are women who only need to recover their physical form.
