I am a Mom of two very active little kids. It is hard to find time or energy to workout by myself. So, I have found that my best workouts include my kids. They enjoy the quality time with Mommy and I enjoy the feeling I get after the stretching and workouts. (And making those memories with my kids, of course.) 🙂
As you try these fun poses and stretches remember that I am not a trained workout professional. Always consult a physician before starting any strenuous exercise routine. Thank you to my friends Jen and Dawn who were my beautiful Mommy models and photographers. 🙂
Wednesday Workouts: Baby Bridge Pose
Works Your: Abs, Butt, Hips
Aaron was enjoying the photo op. 🙂
And enjoying pushing Mommy’s belly in. 🙂
Unfortunately this IS me pulling in at my core.
Lie on the floor with knees bend and directly over heels.
Place arms at your sides, palm down.
Place your child on your lower abdomen. For toddlers, let them sit. If you have itty-bitties you are going to want to hold your little one in place during this pose
Exhale and press feet into the floor as you lift your hips.
Pull your belly button into your stomach and tighten from your buttocks.
Slowly lower, keeping your buttocks and core tightened and back straight.
