Mom and Baby Exercise Training: stronger with baby and stronger for life.

Stephanie Paplinskie (MA, CSCS, PhD student)
Physical activity is a primary tool to reduce weight for women in the postpartum period and can have physiological/psychological benefits. Despite its benefits, prior research has not examined the effects of combining aerobic/resistance training exercises with mothers after childbirth. Given that childbearing has been reported as a lifestyle factor that contributes to the development of obesity in women, my intervention incorporates babies and measures outcomes that affect, the mother/the child. My research seeks to understand the phycial/phsycological effects of “mom and baby” exercise
