I've just had my baby. When can I start?
Depending on how you are feeling, you can typically start within 2-3 weeks after either type of delivery (vaginal or C-section). Restore My Core is suitable for both vaginal and C-section births.
I had my baby a few years ago. Can I still do the program now?
Absolutely! This program is beneficial for both new and seasoned moms. It's imperative that we continue working on maintaining the strength and function of our core and pelvic floor.
How long are the workouts? How often should I do them?
Once you get the hang of the routine, it should take you about 20-30 minutes per day. Your goal is to get the routine done every day, if possible.
Can I do this program if I have pelvic organ prolapse?
Yes. All of the exercises in each phase are suitable for pelvic organ prolapse. You will want to double check with your women's health/pelvic floor physical therapist to ensure that they are appropriate for your specific situation and grade of prolapse.
Can I still do this program if I am already doing another workout program?
Absolutely! I will want you to make sure that you incorporate it into your current routine, as well as do it as a form of recovery exercise on your non-training days.
Can I also do cardio while doing Restore My Core?
Yes! Low to moderate intensity cardio, but high intensity cardio should be avoided until you heal your core and pelvic floor.
What will I need for the program?
A set of varying resistance bands
A set of light, medium, and heavier dumbbells
A 36" foam roller
A small inflatable Pilates ball
A pair of soft tissue therapy balls.
