How to get back to working out after birth or injury

Blanche and Esther discuss rebuilding a foundation when returning to working out and talk about the difference between acute vs. chronic workloads.
Ok. We're back at it this week talking about what to keep in mind when you get back to working out in your postpartum or post injury body. We want to talk about why it's important to look at the immediate and longterm stress of your workouts, the importance to rebuild your foundation and some questions to keep in the back of your mind as you evaluate the intensity of your workouts.
