An American celebrity trainer suggests that the key to getting back in shape following pregnancy is to use whatever free time you have for workouts, yoga or any other exercise provided it is intense enough.
"The key is to do what you can in the time that you can, and do it more intense to make for the lack of time," eonline.com quoted celebrity trainer Andrea Orbeck as saying.

Orbeck, who has created a Pregnancy Sculpt DVD, recommends starting with cardio exercises and making your child part of your workout.
You can push the stroller or strap the baby on to your chest while you step out for a walk.
"As babies need so much sleep, it's a great time to get moving during nap time and make the most of your precious time to yourself," she advised.
Other workout ideas for new moms include sumo squats, alternative reverse lunges, reverse bridges and much more.
Orbeck suggests new moms to stick to food items that are clean, lean, green and rich in protein.
She also advises women to do yoga post-pregnancy.
"I like to build strength in women after pregnancy. Yoga is great for toning, mental health, relaxation and more during stressful times," she said.
