The Bump Plan: All The Support You Need to Stay Fit and Strong From Pregnancy to Postpartum




The Bump Plan [...] makes you feel completely safe, and empowered both mentally and physically
Harper's Bazaar


A practical, expert-led, straight-talking guide to exercising during pregnancy and post-birth.

Staying active during pregnancy and the postpartum period has vast physical and mental health benefits, but it’s also a subject that’s fraught with fear, myths, and misinformation. We’re told by doctors to exercise, but we’re not given the tools with which to do so.

Enter: The Bump Plan, by personal trainer, pre-and-postnatal exercise specialist and mother of two, Hollie Grant. With illustrated trimester-by-trimester plans on what you can safely do at each stage, guidance about the physical shifts you can expect, information on how to move and get back to doing the things you love after your baby has arrived, and nutrition and pelvic health advice, there is no better companion to see you through this exciting but daunting time.

Nourish, sweat and strengthen your way to lifelong wellness with award-winning Pilates instructor and chef Hollie Grant's balanced recipes and workouts.

Hollie started The Model Method online plan after years of teaching her private clients so anyone can carry out the plan, anywhere. This beautiful book will follow on from the plan, showing the reader how to Nourish, Sweat and Strengthen for a healthier, stronger lifestyle.

Nourish will provide readers with delicious and balanced recipes with easy-to-source ingredients to encourage readers to eat from all the food groups unless medically advised not to. As a former chef Hollie is strongly against 'diets' and feels that we should eat to nourish our bodies, not starve them. The Sweat part of the plan will be split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses. All the workouts will include elements of both Pilates and HIIT. Pilates is amazing at toning and fixing postural issues but does not address the incredible health benefits you tend to only get from HIIT (including reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity). Strengthen provides Pilates exercises and descriptions of technique, progressions and regressions, muscles activated and why you would carry out that exercise. The book is designed to be personalised so will also teach the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them.

Above all, The Model Method is about how our bodies function and perform, rather than how they look, in order to encourage a healthy relationship with food and exercise.
