Bye Bye Back Pain… Strengthening Your Core

After having a baby (or 2 or 3) your midsection can take a beating, not to mention your back. Here are 2 good basic abdominal and 2 basic back exercises you can do to help strengthen your deep core muscles. Always start slowly, gradually doing more reps as you become stronger. Aim for 10 reps of each exercise to start with repeating the circuit 1-4 times.

Remember to always initiate every move your body does by gently engaging your pelvic floor muscles, yes that’s right, DO YOUR KEGELS!

**Be sure to check with your doctor before you begin any exercise program**
