Trying to stay in shape with a small child at home can be tricky. I’m over here trying to get my squats on, and all my son wants to do is crawl between my feet and/or pants me. And anyone who has a son can attest to the fact that the second you put something down, they will have picked it up and ran away, so using weights is a questionable choice. Either we would end up with busted little toes or a weight through the living room window. No fun for anyone. So I cleared all the Lego duplos off the carpet, and came up with a quick and easy mommy and me workout.
- Set your little one up on a step stool. Hold both hands, and play peek a boo while you do squats!
- Hug them to your chest while you do lunges. Bonus points for sound effects!
- Let them play piggyback while you do plank exercises!
Watch me and my little guy in the video below!
He has so much fun, and holding him adds a little bit more resistance to my routine! Do you guys have any mommy and me moves? Let me know in the comments!
