Can I do Fastercise while recovering from surgery, childbirth, etc?
Yes, but we do recommend getting your doctor’s approval. Since the Fastercise exercises are effective even from a sitting/lying down position and only involve tightening or shivering some of your muscles, it poses very little risk to your recovery. In many cases, it can actually help aid in recovery, since it increases lactate and growth hormone which both promote wound healing. In addition, it can help maintain and increase the size and number of mitochondria which provide the energy to fight infection and repair tissue. While you may not be able to do every type of exercise offered by the program, there are many exercises you probably will be able to do. Please see our video library for exercises you can do while recovering or if you have a physical disability.
