Our hormones are out of wack while pregnant and also while breastfeeding. If you where fit before your pregnancy and continued working out the same during your pregnancy you would have noticed no matter what you did you got softer and lost muscle mass. 

This is normal and its because of the hormones and extra estrogen our bodies carry during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Our bodies have a hard time building muscle during this time but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t workout. Put it this way, even if you can't GAIN muscle while breastfeeding, why not weight train in order to KEEP the muscle you already have? See it this way…. if you don't use it, you lose it!

So my breastfeeding moms don’t be discouraged your not getting that muscle definition back. Once you stop breastfeeding the extra weight will come off if it hasn’t already and gaining your muscle will be easier.

You can also take protein but stay clear from creatine.  Stick to 100% whey protein.  Most protein powders add extra things and aren't safe.  But the 100% whey one is just whey protein, which is fine.

Also, take note that if you begin to lift extremely heavy or workout intensely (by intensely I mean working your body 100%) and feel muscle soreness, there will be lactic acid build up in your muscles which can change the flavor of the milk temporally (this would only last for 1 feeding) . Some babies are sensitive to it, others don't care (If I got it, mine didn't). There is a debate about whether this is true but just thought I’d share incase your baby doesn’t like your milk after an intense workout and if you do experience It just make sure you don’t workout too close to a feeding or have a pumped bottle ready for your baby.

I hope this little blog made those moms who felt down about there bodies feel a bit better and gave hope. Your not alone and we are all struggling just stay motivated and workout because you’ll never regret a workout.

A method that can in any case work your muscles past the purpose of disappointment is incomplete redundancies, which just uses a portion of the lift.

Extra oestrogen? I understood it as less oestrogen and more progesterone that causes poorer muscle tone..

It's nice to see someone like you not making excuses just to be fit. I can imagine how hard it would be for someone pregnant to still be able to balance her fitness and her daily motherly life. You need to further deliver your message and story across to mothers out there. Health and wellness should never be overlooked. We have to have a thorough look of our body, monitoring its progress and where to improve, whether physically, emotionally, mentally or even spiritually.

Edison also made two films of Sandow a few years before. Those were the first three motion pictures featuring a bodybuilder. In the early 20th century, Bernarr Macfadden and Charles Atlas, continued to promote bodybuilding across the world. Alois P. Swoboda was an early pioneer in America.
Bodybuilding became more popular in the 1950s and 1960s with the emergence of strength and gymnastics champions joining the culture, and the simultaneous popularization of muscle training, most of all by Joe Weider, whose advertising in comic books and other publications encouraged many young men to undertake weight training to improve their physiques to resemble the comic books' muscular superheroes

When you're starting on a mass gain program, the most important element (besides training) is to construct a solid muscle building diet that will promote muscle growth as well as recovery. If you want to see optimum results, you'll have to focus on both what you're doing in the gym, as well as what you're doing in the kitchen. Trainees who neglect their diets are only factoring in half the equation that goes into building muscle mass, thus their gains will be very poor, to say the least.
