I've heard the story: first time a mum goes on a trampoline with her kids she realises the old pelvic floor isn't quite as "recovered" as she'd hoped.
And I admit, even after properly following my Ready Steady Mums programme, "boinging" up and down on a trampoline is not something I'm comfortable with.
So I decided to improvise.
This is a video of the main exercise involved in "Katy Tuncer's trampoline training for mums". Quite hard work actually - although I do look a little bit deranged :)
A good way to entertain two babies and get fit - without trashing the pelvic floor...
- go to the loo before you go on the trampoline
- don't stand on your babies (in fact I should probably say "don't do this at all")
- keep your upper body poised while you do knee lifts
- use your arms too
- have fun!
My two year old thinks it's hilarious and is obsessed with going outside "on the boing". My 9 month-old at least enjoys the fresh-air and giggles along.
Anyone else tried it?
Happy weekend everyone
