Now that I have sweet Luke, the days of going to the gym whenever I want are over. So, I’ve decided to embrace home workouts and practices. I recently started with this simple 20 minute workout posted at my local 24 Hour Fitness by one of the trainers, Xavier. I adapted it to incorporate little Luke and he had a ball. I even recruited my husband John to join us. We were actually sore the next day!
This video isn’t the best but you know how to do a basic squat, right? To supercharge the squat (and make it more fun for your little one), hold the baby in front of you and keep your chest lifted as you squat.
In this exercise, Roxy, Bella and Luke joined in on the fun. To do a forearm plank, draw your shoulder blades in and down, draw your belly in and engage your legs. You can also drop your knees to modify.
We hope you enjoy the family workout as much as we did. If so, share it with your friends!
