SUSTAINABLE STRENGTH RESET FAQ

How long is this program?

The program is 8 weeks and allows you the flexibility to choose your weekly workout days. We understand how crazy motherhood can be. Remember to show yourself grace and be patient with yourself. 

What is the goal of the program? 

Sustainable Strength Reset is an exercise and habits based program specifically designed to help busy moms break free of the All-or-Nothing mentality and implement a sustainable exercise routine that works for YOU! You will receive 3 workouts to help you gain strength and functionality in your body. 

 

Are these workouts safe for diastasis, hypertonic pelvic floor and/or prolapse?

Yes, they are. Each workout video will walk you through each exercise. Modifications and cues are provided to help you recognize and manage intra-abdominal pressure, as well as reduce symptoms related to diastasis recti, prolapse and incontinence. 

 

If possible, see a pelvic floor therapist. 

 

What if it’s been YEARS since I’ve had a baby?

It doesn’t matter. The Sustainable Strength Reset Program was created to help mama’s no matter how long they’ve been postpartum. Our workouts can be adjusted based on your comfort level.

 

Can I do this program if I’m pregnant? 

The Sustainable Strength Reset Program is meant for postpartum mama’s. 

 

We encourage you to seek the advice of your doctor before beginning any workouts that are new to your exercise routine during pregnancy.

 

How soon after the baby should I start the program? 

8 weeks after your doctor has cleared you to workout. Each workout creates a foundation to help you feel stronger and move better throughout your daily routine after having a baby. 

 

We always encourage you to seek the advice of your doctor first.  

 

Is this program safe while breastfeeding/pumping? 

Yes. A couple things to keep in mind:

1) Ensure you are getting adequate nutrition so it does not affect your milk supply. 

 

2) Drink plenty of water and eat lots of whole foods.

 

3) While nursing/pumping your body is producing relaxin. Relaxin is a hormone that increases ligament laxity which can make you more prone to injury. Be cautious and mindful as you work through the program. 

 

Do I need equipment for this program? 

Yes, a set of mini resistance bands. 

Optional, dumbbell or kettlebell for added resistance or you can do each exercise with just body weight.
 

Do I need cardio in addition to your program? 

No need to fret, we’ve built cardio into the workouts and have included modifications in case you experience pelvic floor symptoms. Each person’s postpartum experience is different. There’s no one size fits all in movement :) 

 

How challenging are the workouts? 

Functional movement is key to helping a mama get back to doing the things she needs and loves to do. Each workout provides a beginner, intermediate, and advance option based on your comfort level. We walk you through each exercise to help you reconnect your mind with those often hard-to-find muscles. 

 

How many days a week do I need to do the workouts? 

3 new strength-based workouts are sent to your inbox weekly (a total of 24 workouts over the course of 8 weeks). You are encouraged to set a date/time for yourself each week to complete the workouts. We understand motherhood can be crazy, which is why we’ve built some flexibility into the program. 

 

What if I can’t make the live Q&A sessions? 

We understand life can get crazy, a link to the live Q&A will be sent to you via email once a week.
