Leg Slides:

• Rapid weight loss occurs in the post-pregnancy period
• Leg slides exercise helps you get back into your pre-pregnancy shape

Precautions:

• Do this exercise once episiotomy has healed
• Ok to start 6 weeks after vaginal birth, for c-section moms, it’s best to consult a doctor

Exercise Technique:

This exercise has two difficulty levels. It’s best to start with level 1 & once you gain comfort over a few days, move on to level 2.

Level 1:

1. First, lie down on your back on a non-slip yoga mat
2. Make sure that your legs are straight on the floor
3. Now, slide your right foot towards your hip such that the heel the hip and
the knee is pointing to the ceiling
4. Slide it back to the starting position
5. Next, slide your left foot towards your hip such that the heel touches the hip and
the knee is pointing to the ceiling
6. Slide it back to the starting position
7. Repeat the exercise 8 times with both the legs

Level 2:

1. Lie down on your back on a non-slip yoga mat
2. Keep your legs straight on the floor
3. Now, slide your right foot towards the hips such that your knee points to your face
4. Release, however, make sure the foot does not touch the floor
5. Now, slide your left foot towards the hips. Again, keep the foot off the floor such
that your knee points to your face.
6. Slide the foot back without keeping the foot on the floor
7. Immediately repeat it with the other leg again. It will look like a cycling movement
8. Do a total of 8 counts of this exercise. As you build stamina, you can
increase the repetitions
