Crossfitting Postpartum

How long did you go before starting back with Crossfitting after having a baby? I had a baby 3 weeks ago and I feel good, although my doctor won't give me the go ahead until 6 weeks! All I can do is walk, which I'm doing most days of the week. I'm ready to start getting strong again

Re: Crossfitting Postpartum

working out strenously too soon after childbirth will increase the flow of lochia. I felt fine, too, but waited the six weeks. I still had a bit of increased bleeding when I did so I backed off the intensity just a little, otherwise I felt fine.

Re: Crossfitting Postpartum

thanks veronica! I'll probably wait just to be on the safe side...I'd like to be done with the lochia already!!! I'm walking and doing a tad bit of jogging right now. I discovered that I can still do pushups and situps! Hopefully it will come back fast...I'm ready for my sub 4 min Fran!!
