I've had the wonderful blessing to work with many, many new moms over the past decade, and I haven’t come across many who weren’t concerned with their tummy fat, muffin tops, bra fat and bat-wing arms - to put it bluntly, they wanted to lose their pregnancy and 'mommy weight' and wanted it gone IMMEDIATELY.

Pregnancy weight isn’t usually stored in the nicest of places (like those I just mentioned), your clothes don’t fit the way they used to, plus it’s just plain annoying to have to worry about pregnancy weight when you’ve already got so much on your plate.best fat loss exercises to lose pregnancy weight

I know your first reaction is to get on the floor and do some crunches and sit-ups, and hop on the treadmill for days on end, but that should be your last action. Those types of exercises really don’t do very much when it comes to how to lose pregnancy weight.

They don’t burn many calories, and they don’t cause much of a metabolism change, which means they don’t burn any fat. Sure they work the muscle a little, but the abs are a small muscle group (relatively speaking) and doing thousands of crunches won’t do much.

Cardio, as it’s usually performed, is pretty overrated when it comes to losing pregnancy weight and getting rid of your tummy fat, but that’s another article for another time…

All moms need to stick to the following 3 fat loss exercises:

  1. Push-ups   
  2. Squats and/or Lunges   
  3. Planks   

Those 3 exercises (OK 4) all move a lot of muscle and will work your entire body. I’ve actually created workouts for moms that revolved around nothing but those fat loss exercises.

And let me tell you that any skepticism or doubts they had were quickly erased once they gave the workout a try.

But why are those exercises so effective in helping you lose pregnancy weight and your tummy fat?

First of all, they move a lot of muscle, which means they burn a lot of calories – even while you’re not working out.

Take the push-up for example. Most moms hate push-ups because they can’t do them very well, and they conjure up images of high school where they were humiliated in gym class, but there are so many variations that no mom should ever leave push-ups out of her workout.

But let’s take a look at what’s involved. The push-up not only works your chest (a spot many women need to work just for posture reasons), but they also work the shoulders, triceps and abs.

Now tell me if that wasn’t a checklist of what virtually every mom wants help with.

That’s pretty much 3 exercises all rolled into one, which means that not only do you get a great fat loss exercise in, but you also save some of your precious free time!

Let’s move on to the squat and lunge. The same arguments I had for the push-up, I have for squats and lunges…

…they work A LOT of muscle. They work every muscle in your lower body, which helps give you the strong and toned legs and butt you want, plus they also work your abs.

As for Planks, well, they give you far more fat loss bang for your buck than any crunch or sit-up because they strengthen the entire core, rather than just focusing on the abdominal wall (which is a pretty small muscle, relatively speaking).

Not only do they work your entire core, but your chest, shoulders, triceps, back and glutes are also working overtime just to keep your body in that position.

Tell me what abs exercise can do all that? Certainly not crunches and sit-ups.

Put all 3 of those exercises together in a circuit and you have yourself a killer, full body fat loss workout that will help you lose pregnancy weight and obliterate your mommy belly!

I know I said "they work a lot of muscle" quite often throughout this article and that scares a lot of moms. They get these images in their minds of giant, hulking men and women with huge muscles and grunting a lot.

Don’t worry because it won’t happen to you. 99.9% of women just can’t gain muscle that easily so there’s no need to worry about getting big and "bulky."

Plus, if it makes you feel any better, my 115-pound wife uses more weight than any woman I have ever trained and she is far from bulky. She has a sexy toned and tight body and lost her pregnancy weight pretty quickly by adhering to my fat loss workout principles.
