Upper Body Workout for Breastfeeding

Have you been experiencing neck and upper back pain and tightness in your early weeks postpartum? Your arm, back, and neck muscles are constantly in the same position, which can cause that pain! Today’s workout will work those muscles in the opposite direction while strengthening them, which will help you feel so much better!

Perform each exercise for 30-45 seconds for 4-6 rounds; or, if you’d like to go for reps, do 12-15 reps for 4-6 rounds. And you don’t have to use any weights if you don’t want to. Keep your core engaged and put all the work into those arm and back muscles!

1. Palm Facing Shoulder Press

2. Scarecrows

3. Bent Lateral Raise

4. Extended Pulses

5. Rear Delt Raise

Upper body work is so important for new mamas to alleviate aches and pains. Throw this workout into your routine and see how much it helps!
