While the baby sleeps...we can work out! There are a few pieces of equipment that I keep at home to make it easier to sneak in workouts when I can't make it to HealthWorks.
1. Resistance Bands
2. 5-lb dumb bells
3. 15-lb kettlebell
With just these three things - you can accomplish a lot! I've been making myself workout for just 10 minutes during each of Lo's naps...so I'll do 20 minutes straight of weights/resistance training. It's a totally attainable goal + instead of getting sidetracked during my workout by all of the things I have to do around the house, I tell myself that it's just 10 minutes, and I can do it! I power walk about 3-4 miles/day with London (sometimes more) so I know we are doing ok in the cardio category.
Here are some of the exercises that I do + rotate them in any order! Just make sure you are doing 10 STRAIGHT minutes of work, no resting. Your heart rate should definitely be up!
Body-weight squats (sets of 25)
Walking lunges (15 each leg)
Mountain climbers (30 sec - 1 min)
Side arm raises
Planks (30 sec - 1 min)
Sit-ups (30 sec - 1 min)
