MY TOP 5 POSTPARTUM HOME WORKOUT PRODUCTS FROM AMAZONSep 24, 2021
Postpartum fitness is all about engaging your transverse abdominal and oblique muscles, working on your pelvic floor, and re-strengthening your bootie and inner thighs. There's a lot of other work that goes into it - but that is my elevator pitch.
In my postpartum group coaching programs (and often with my 1:1 clients) I can get you to your physical, mental, and emotional goals with a yoga mat and a few sets of dumbbells.
There is no magic machine that will fix you, just knowing the most effective/safe exercises and putting in the work!!
That being said- I get asked a lot to share some of my fave home workout products for moms…- so here they are!!
These ones can be used in ADDITION to what you already have. They will spice up your workouts and be really fun.

1. THE BOSU BALL
Bosu Balls add instability to workouts. This automatically helps you get into your deep core muscles through planks, pushups, sit-ups (for those who are able)...basically you name it. I use a Bosu ball in my own workouts weekly.
2. BALA BANGLES
I adore using 2 to 3 lb weights on your ankles for inner thigh, glute, and core work. I also use them on the wrist for some posture work and arm burnouts at the end of workouts. Bala Bangles are more expensive as a brand. But in my option, they are worth it. I held out on buying them for years and now am so happy I did. They keep their shape and are really pretty (not important but- important).
3. STEP BOARD
I use this on myself every time I work out!! You can have much more range of motion with things link chest presses, skull crushers, etc. You also have a space to step up and get some deeper forward lunges etc.
4. A PILATES BALL
I have recently started working with a 1:1 client with a big yoga background (hey Lauren!!) who was having a hard time engaging your lower core postpartum. She also enjoys using lighter weights - which is completely fine!! I have started writing the majority of her workouts using ankle weights and a pilates ball. Using the ball in different positions she is really able to engage her lower core and inner thighs so much more. The results have been insane!!
- A CIRCLE BAND
You can do a full-body workout using only a circle band - and for many people, you should weekly. Circle bands add resistance from your own bodyweight so oftentimes you can shape and lengthen specific body parts without bulking others (think bootie without bulking quads). I love this set because it is cloth so it doesn’t get worn out as quickly (versus plastic).
BONUS: A knee pad (I train a ton of my postpartum clients from their knees because it helps you engage your core and water bottle that tracks your intake - a big game-changer for those breastfeeding!!)
