Once I tried it myself, it is quite challenging because of the dragging force caused by the water. This is a pretty good type of push up variation because of the resistance of the water. This push up workout works more on the arms and back muscles, instead of chest.

3 Weight Loss Tips You Should Not Pick Up From Celebrity Moms

posted on March 29th, 2013 ·


Mun’s note: This is a guest post by Nicole White, one of MunFitnessBlog regular readers.

It is really amazing how celebrities do it, lose weight so quickly after they have given birth to a baby or even two. Celebrity moms are always in the news and are hot property for the tabloids, not for the cute first pictures of junior, but for their rocking bodies as little as two weeks after the delivery. If you have ever given birth or even been around someone pregnant before and after the delivery, you will know that motherhood comes with its own ills, the biggest one being that of unwanted weight that you cannot control.
