exercises can cause harm to a woman's body which is in post delivery recovery stage. If you are planning to start your post delivery exercise regimen, you must be aware of the exercises which are unsafe during post delivery period so that you can avoid them.
The foremost point in this regard is how
your body performs during the pregnancy months and during and after
delivery. It is thereafter that your doctor
can advise you on a fitting exercise plan. You need to follow the advice and
understand that you must be consistent and patient with the exercise regimen.
It is understood that you are desperate
to lose the extra flab and get back into shape but at no point of time should
you stress your body too far. The otherwise weight loss exercises can have a
damaging effect if you try to perform them during the post delivery period.
Remember the fact that you must allow time to your body to regain its earlier
strength, fitness and stamina.
Delivery Exercises Which are Unsafe
Given below are some unsafe post
Even low impact aerobics are best
avoided at the post delivery stage. Aerobics causes a lot of impact on the
joint and muscles. Certain movements and stretches can be harmful for your
internal organs and tissues which are still in the healing stage.
Something like a light couple ball dance
can be a safe one and a mood up-lifter. But anything that requires sudden,
rapid and jerky movements is unsafe. During post delivery dancing can cause
quick exhaustion cause a loss of balance which can be damaging.
Even if you have been walking
for warm-ups before or as a main part of your post delivery exercise regimen,
jogging is unsafe. Jogging causes rapid and jerky movements which delays and
damages the healing process of the uterus and vaginal tissues, not to forget
the Caesarean stitches. Running should also be avoided for the same reason.
During post delivery period you might
have an altered sense of balance. Toppling over from a standing or moving horse
can cause serious injuries to your healing organs and tissues.
In order to get back to shape although
you need to work on your lower back, but rowing is an unsafe option. It can
cause over the exhaustion of the lower back muscles, often resulting in
injuries during the post delivery period.
These exercise sports are unsafe as they
cause sudden and jerky movements. They also put a lot of stress on the joints
apart from enhancing the risk of losing balance while movements.
Pregnancy results in a change of balance
in your body. Now after delivery, it will take some time to get that normal
state and sense of balance back. So cycling is unsafe at this stage. Also the
exercising static cycles must be avoided for the same reason. It can cause

Although very light weight training
under qualified fitness experts are considered to be alright, but moderate to
heavy weight training is unsafe during post delivery. They cause light to acute
stress on joints and muscles and cause internal injuries to the sensitive and
still healing abdominal area.
Therefore, while exercising you must not
only avoid the unsafe ones but also study your body carefully. The elements that
should be monitored are the hormonal changes at regular intervals, the rate of
respiration during and post activity, average energy levels, body temperature,
body laxity, heart rate and the relative emotional state.
