Strong Like a Woman - the Postnatal Programme
The Strong Like a Woman Postnatal Programme is an online training programme for women who want to make a safe and confident return to exercise after having their baby.
Combining the knowledge and expertise of women’s health physio Rosie Cardale and pre & postnatal personal trainer Jenna Topham, the programme has been specifically designed to support your recovery from pregnancy and birth whilst building a strong foundation to rebuild your strength and fitness.
What does the course involve?
You’ll receive 18 weeks of programming, which you can start as soon as you feel ready after having your baby. The first 6 weeks are physio led, with programming designed to support your healing post-birth. Weeks 6-18 are PT led with 3 workouts a week, giving you the structure you need to continue to rehabilitate safely whilst increasing physical strength and fitness.
You’ll also receive a whole body of resources and information which have been designed to build your confidence in, and knowledge of, your postpartum body. You’ll learn more about your pelvic and core health, and will complete the programme with the knowledge and techniques to continue your journey in rebuilding strength and fitness.
What equipment will I need?
This programme can easily be completed at home or within a gym setting. If at home, you'll need A light, long resistance band A pair of dumbbells and/or a kettlebell From week 12 onwards you may find it beneficial to complete the programme in a gym setting where you have a broader selection of weights. If that's not an option for you, an additional set of heavier dumbbells and/or kettlebell might be worth investing in.
