As a new mom, it can be challenging to find the time and energy to squeeze in a workout. Your life becomes a little crazy — your schedule is unpredictable, and you’re not able to leave your baby alone. This can make getting to your favorite 6 p.m. spin class seem pretty impossible (unless your S.O. wants to step in and be a dear, of course).
The solution? Exercise with your baby, during which you can stay by their side and get your sweat on. Plus, it can be really enjoyable and add to that mom-and-baby bonding time.
Try these seven exercises the next time you’re looking for a fun and effective workout routine. “All of these exercises really add resistance for mom, allowing her to get more bang for her buck during what’s usually limited time,” certified personal trainer Katie Dunlop, owner and founder of Love Sweat Fitness, tells SheKnows.
