This week on the Live Big Lift Big Podcast, we are back with the founders of The Mint PRJCT, Cara Forrester and Betsy Jones. In this episode, we’ll dive into exercising and training for expecting and postpartum moms—specifically how to structure your training during and after pregnancy, what exercises you for sure need to be doing, which ones you don't, how to get started with strength training as an expecting or new mom and a bunch more. And if you missed our previous episode on pregnancy and postpartum nutrition with Jess Carr, be sure to head back to episode 13 after this one.
Enjoy Episode #22 Navigating Workouts and Body Changes During & After Pregnancy w/ Betsy & Cara from The MINT Prjct
