It can be difficult to squeeze in postpartum exercise. Here are some variations on arm pushups and dips that you can do with your little one.
I know how hard it can be to fit in a workout as a new mom, so I'm gonna show you some exercises you can do with your baby. This routine will help you slip all the new gear. So let's start with the kiss me push up. This is one of Timothy's all time favorites. So you come on to your knees, you wanna walk your knees back a little-- a bit so that you can kind of angle your hips forward and scoop out your abs. You're gonna bend your elbows to the sides and give your little baby a kiss. See how he loves that? You wanna work up to 12 to 15 reps of this. Really make sure to keep your abs tight and eventually, if you're brave enough to do a full pushup, straighten out the legs, haul up the lower abs, pull the shoulders down away from here. Here we go, and lower down, kiss, and lift up. Lower down and kiss. Great job Timothy! Now the next move is baby triceps dips. I really love these cause they tone the back of the arms and we're gonna take our little precious ones, place them on your upper thighs, make sure they are nice and secure here, and then haul out your lower abs, take your hands behind you, lift your hips a little bit off the floor and then bend your elbows straight back, and press straight up. And it's like they have a little ride here. They go out for a little ride. Bend and press. Bend and press. Make sure you squeeze the elbows together and work up to 20 reps.
