Before having my first child, I worked out everyday, sometimes twice a day, so slowing down while pregnant and recovering from a c-section was difficult. Not to mention that this was also my first kid and I wanted to do all the mom things the ‘perfect’ or ‘right’ way.
I sat around being more sedentary than ever until about three months post-partum, and then things suddenly got easier for me and the baby. (If you’re a new mom this feels like forever, but hang in there.) I could do more things independently, and I had more energy. I may not have been able to leave the room easily due to those baby ninja senses, but I took what I could get.
What do I mean by that? Well, when I’m Pressing RESET, I’m actually going through a series of developmental movements that we did as babies. Sounds silly, but these movements, like breathwork, establishing head control, rolling, rocking, sitting, and crawling, were the foundation of our very original strength training system. We did these very movements to build strength in our bodies to get up and walk and run and play.
The reason that these are so beneficial to adults, especially moms, is that Pressing RESET is great at restoring our foundational strength that can feel lost after carrying a baby around for 9 months or so.
