Super Mom: Now is the time to strengthen the muscles you ll need most as a new mother As a mom-to-be, you have some experience carrying around extra weight. Your expanding baby bump is proof of that. But you ll soon be faced with the daily task of toting your growing newborn and all her gear. To help prepare your body for the constant lifting and holding to come, now is the time to strengthen the muscles you ll use most as a new mom.According to prenatal and postnatal fitness expert Lindsay Brin, B.S.E., creator of momsintofitness.com the most important muscles for expectant moms to strengthen are the core (primarily the abdominals and back), biceps, shoulders and quadriceps. Simple movements like standing up from a chair or the floor with your baby in your arms require powerful core and quadriceps, she explains.
Plus, having a new baby means doing the same things over and over (and over!) again. Just think about how many times you ll mimic a bicep curl by lifting your baby s car seat, says Brin.

Training by Trimester Your body works so hard during pregnancy that your blood volume and endurance increase, which in turn elevates your fitness level. Your body changes drastically as you progress in your pregnancy, explains Lindsay Brin, mother of a 5-month-old girl and creator of the trimester-specific DVD series. Plus, your body may stop reaping the benefits of exercise if you do the same workout again and again. To make the most of your workout in each trimester, it s important to focus on those muscles that are most taxed then, in addition to the ones you need to strengthen for the months ahead, says Brin. In the first trimester, that means focusing on your core, which includes your hips, back, pelvic floor and, most importantly, your deepest abdominal muscle, the transverse abdominis. Your pelvic floor and your transverse support your baby like a sling, so you want them to stay strong, Brin explains. --Fit Pregnancy Magazine
