Sometimes us new moms don’t have time to get out of the house or even take 5 minutes away from a demanding baby. Crossfit Mom is a great place, but here’s a workout that includes the baby when you have one of those days you just can’t get away.
3-5 rounds of:
Push-ups (place baby on floor, kiss baby on the nose/cheek when you descend)
Squats (hold baby in your arms)
Lunges (hold baby in your arms)
Bridges (hold baby on your lap as you do the bridge)
Reps depend on size of baby and your strength/ability/post-partum issues. Not done for time.
Additional cardio: put on your “weighted vest” (baby sling - Ergo carrier has the thickest straps. Mei Tai, Moby, or Ring Slings work too) and go for a long walk or even a hike (I do 1-2 hours per day with our dog). Good resistance for mom, nice cozy nap for baby.
Bottom line - no excuses.
