When you have just given birth, the joy must have been unbearable. But yet again, you have to face the facts that you might have accumulated excess weight during pregnancy and even after giving birth to your child because you still have no time to go out and workout. Well, here is a guide on how to lose the pregnancy weight off by mixing it up in the gym or at home with elliptical machine and rowing machines. Remember the point of this guide is to make sure everything is kept interesting in the gym because this will challenge your body but make sure you are not bored during the course of this 45 minute workout by using 3 different machines. It will burn fats, bust boredom, triple threat cardio workout.
The first 10 minutes you will be spending it with the rowing machine. Set the damper between 3 and 5, at the last 15 seconds of every minute you are working out increase your strokes per minute as much as you can so you will not lose momentum and will not be complacent.
The next 10 minute until the 20-minute mark, you will move to an elliptical machine then set the resistance between 6 and 9. First you have to go forward during the first minute and then go backward the second minute. Maintaining this shifting motion until the end of the 10 minutes on the machine.
The next workout will be during the 20-minute mark until the 30-minute mark. This will be on a treadmill to cool down. But just a little bit! Just set the incline to 1 percent and run at a pace you can keep for the next 10 minutes.
On the 30th minute until the 35th, you can go back to the rowing machine and set the damper between 4 or 6, this time keep on rowing until the last 20 seconds of every minute and push yourself to the highest strokes per minute you can achieve.
Now go back to the elliptical machine on the 35th minute until the 40th and set the resistance between 6 and 8. It is going to be different than the first ride on the elliptical because every other minute on the machine, you will be letting go of the handle to work on your core this time around
On the final 5 minutes, 40th to 45th. Go back to the treadmill to finish off the workout by running at an incline of 5 degrees and set the speed to a calm four mph to cool down.
This will be effective if followed accordingly. However, if you do not like to run, you can try using a stationary bike instead. If you do not have access to a gym, then you can do it old school by swimming or running outside and even try step aerobics if you want to go traditional exercise. Do anything active and keep your heart rate up for 45 minutes.
