Vogue Williams has opened up about her pre and post birth pregnancy exercise plan.
Speaking to The Sun, the model, DJ, tan entrepreneur and mum revealed that she has exewrcised all of her life, and has built up muscle memory which helped her regain her physique and strength following the birth of her little boy, Theodore.
“Pregnancy can be difficult because you are not used to your body changing,” she said.
“You do not feel yourself and can be a bit self-conscious.”
“I started exercising as soon as my morning sickness passed — and I loved it. I tried to resume training about five weeks after I gave birth and I just couldn’t do it at first. My body wasn’t ready.”
“But I was able to start doing light exercises about two weeks after that. It didn’t take too long to get back in shape.”
Vogue revealed that many mums have asked her about her post-baby body, and that she was able to snap back to her previous shape because she exercised every day during pregnancy – and even wanted to train the day she gave birth.
“I wanted to do some spinning on the day I gave birth but I had to be induced at 6am so the doctors wouldn’t let me.”
She encouraged new mums to priorities their health, and not to push themselves too hard or punish their bodies in order to get back into shape.
She particularly flagged the dangers of fitness shakes and teas: “It’s dumb and dangerous.”
