Have you been searching for a workout that you can do anytime, anywhere, no equipment required? Oh yeah and that’s baby friendly?! Well that’s what we have for you right here. Here’s why we put this together for you:
Before I found out I was pregnant you could find me in the gym 6 days a week. Even when I was pregnant I was still working out 5 days a week ( Until I was put on bedrest, you can read more about that here.) Needless to say after I had Liam, I had to get a little more creative with my workouts. I get how hard it can be to get in a good workout post Baby! So I came up with this little circuit I could do with my little man outside to get both of us some Vitamin D! Since spring is upon us I’m hoping you can get outside and give this circuit a try!
30 Minute Circuit
Start with a 10 minute walk or jog.
Stroller Lunges With Booty Kickback.
- 20 lunges on each leg. Make sure to not let your front knee go past your toes. As you come up, squeeze your butt and life the back leg up to perform a booty kickback.
- Squat down without letting your knees go past your toes. Push the stroller out in front of you as you squat down. Perform 20 total.
Tricep Bench Dips.
- For these find a bench and dip down until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle. Perform 20 dips and try to do 2-3 sets.
- While still at the bench from your tricep dips, do 40 total step-ups in between your sets of tricep dips. This will help get your heart rate up for a little cardio boost.
- Perform for 30-60 seconds or, again, until your little babe runs away.
- Entertain your little babe while you perform the push-up. I like to do 12-15 of these and maybe even a second round of another 12-15 reps.
- These are like the go-to move! You need squat jumps in your life people! Perform 20-30 squat jumps. If needed, you could even hold your little one.. just don’t jump too high!
- Perform until your baby won’t lay still anymore or 1 minute. I think we all know which one is going to come first though, don’t we?! Also, you can do this on your hands of forearms, just be sure that you hands are directly below your shoulders.
End your workout with a little cardio and let your little babe run around and have fun! This will always help to tire them out in the hopes of a good nap!!
Side note: While no equipment is needed, we love to carry a large blanket or towel in our stroller that way we can lay it out and let the babes play while we workout.
