New mum Soha Ali Khan is back to the gym two months after delivery

She was accompanied by none other than husband Kunal Kemmu and the new parents were surely giving us some serious fitness goals.

Getting back to your workout and fitness regime has been a subject of debate for quite some time now. While there are many people including experts who feel that a new mother should ideally wait for 6 months to start an exercise regime, the general consensus is "to each his own."

Which basically means that it really depends on your body and the kind of problems you had to go through during delivery. So if you have had a smooth normal delivery, there's no reason at all for you to not start simple exercises post delivery.

Perhaps that's what new mum Soha Ali Khan also feels as she is back to the gym two months after giving birth to a cute little baby girl Inaaye Naumi Kemmu.

Soha was seen all fit and fine heading to the gym close to her home in Bandra today. She was accompanied by none other than husband Kunal Kemmu.

The new parents were seen all geared up to hit the gym and were sporting matching workout gear. Must say they were giving fitness goals to all new parents out there.

Like Soha, her sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor had also chosen to start working out very soon after her delivery. In fact, Kareena also started her fitness routine two months after Taimur was born and after a couple of months, she even changed her workout routine altogether for better results.

When to start exercising after delivery

Like we said above, it really depends on when you want to exercise after delivery. If you feel fit and fine and had a smoothe pregnancy and delivery, we'd say nothing should stop you.

However, we're not the experts here and so to be safe it is always advisable to consult your gynecologist and figure out if your body is ready for it.

Here are a few other things that you must keep in mind:

1.Don't be in a hurry: The best way to lose all your pregnancy weight would be to take it easy and first allowing your body to recover completely, which experts say usually takes around six months. So before you've crossed that six-month mark, take it easy, mummy!

2. Don't stretch yourself: Another point to remember would be to take it easy and not to stretch yourself too much. For effective weight loss, choose a workout that helps you and isn't taxing for your body.

3. Rest as much as you can: Losing all that sleep over your weight and other new baby concerns would only add to your kilos. Yes, that's right!

According to WebMD, in a research conducted over new mothers studied, those who slept 5 hours a night or less were more likely to have at least 11 more pounds to lose by the time their babies were a year old than moms who slept 7 hours a night.

All we'd say it, see what suits you and don't just follow the herd.
