2 months postpartum. Kettlebells after pregnancy

Today is Lyla's 2 month birthday. I can't believe it has already been 2 months. She is getting so big.
I'm even starting to feel like a real person again. Here is my quick workout that I did today.

KB Push-ups 6 x 3
Lat Pull down 60lb 8 x 3
Single Front Squat 26lb 5 x 3 each side

1 minute rest at the end and repeated 3 times

Hanging Leg Raises 15 x 2
Windmill 26lb 2 x 2
Waiter Walk 26lb 30sec x 2

Repeated 2 times

Plank Hold 60 seconds (core was already tired from hanging leg raises, so barely made it for this one)

Stretched

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.
