Welcome to our Strong Running Mama Program! We are so glad that you are joining us!
STRONG RUNNING MAMA is a comprehensive & progressive virtual program designed to improve single leg & hip strength, and core strength & function post-baby. This rehabilitation Program is designed for the postpartum mama to get back to running pain free and safely. The program starts with the most necessary activation exercises and progresses to more advanced exercises. Instead of the traditional “Strength” exercises of double leg squats & etc., the program is designed to strengthen those commonly underused & turned off muscles during pregnancy and postpartum so that you can have confidence returning to running. Since running is a single leg sport it is essential to do single leg dynamic strength exercises focusing on the core and hip stabilizing muscles. Then the Program progresses by gradually increasing impact activities in the later weeks so you can go back to running strong & confident.
Expert instruction on how and when to safely return to running is provided by Physical Therapist & Pelvic Floor Specialist, Dr. Anna Towne of Rebound Sports & PT, who is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and mom of 2.
During each class, Anna will lead with video instruction through specific exercises that help with return to running. You will not be completely on your own though! Anna will send periodic check-ins to answer any of your questions and make sure you are on the right track. With her help and a full PDF of exercises, you will be able to discover and learn new techniques that will empower you as a strong running mama!
Whether your baby is six weeks old or 6+ years old, it is never too late to return to running & fitness. Mothers should not have to accept pain and peeing their pants as a “normal” consequence of having kids. We don’t want moms to feel lost and not know where to start with returning to running. This program enables moms to return confidently and safely to enjoying activities without pain or complications.
The program includes:
- 6 weeks of progressive postpartum workout classes to build the strength required for the impact of running. You can repeat these classes as much as you want/need!
- Proper warm-ups & cooldowns for each week of strength training that are easy to do and are specific to the postpartum runner.
