Cool Can you build muscle while breastfeeding?

I have lifted weights for years. I continued to do so up until recently (as I am 37 weeks pregnant and about to pop). Although I have kept up protein, carbs and calories, the hormonal changes of pregnancy have really turned my muscles to mush. My question: DUE TO THE UNUSUAL HORMONAL STATE OF...

glute bridge - feet or shoulders elevated?

I've been trying to master these as I'm trying to round out my glute and hamstring routine. I have tried them with my shoulders on a bench and it feels so awkward! So I do them flat on the ground, but I can do 155lbs for sets of 15 and it doesn't feel like it's working my glutes specifically. ...
