As a mom of three, I know the struggle of getting rid of baby weight. With two older children and a baby, being able to do easy stroller workouts at home, makes getting in exercise, much easier.
I started my weight loss journey about three years ago. I was unhappy, unhealthy and very much overweight.
One of my best friends introduced me to Herbalife, a total nutrition company that has weight loss products. I was a skeptic at first but after a few months, I was down 20 pounds. After six months of using Herbalife products, I lost a total of 45 pounds, was full of energy and overall happy with myself.
When I found out I was pregnant with Ayden, I stayed on some of my Herbalife products. The healthy meal shake is jampacked with great nutrition and my doctor gave me the okay to continue using it.
I also worked out during my pregnancy to keep my metabolism up and my baby healthy.
Now that baby Ayden is here and between mom life responsibilities and my work at home job, it can get crazy. Finding time to workout can be difficult. Most times I work out super early in the morning or late at night in my living room.
I don’t have time to go to a gym. Easy at home workouts or easy stroller workouts make it simple for me to stay active and enjoy time with baby Ayden or with the kids as well.
Here are four super easy workouts you can do at home with a stroller in 30 minutes or less! Make sure you stretch and warm up before doing your workout.
Squats and Pulse Squats
I don’t know about you, but I am trying to build a better booty. I have that mom butt where things just aren’t as sculpted anymore. Doing squats are great for working the butt and leg muscles. I like to do ten to fifteen each for three rounds for each exercise. But if you can do more, go for it! Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, make sure you have good posture and form. Back straight and go as low as feels comfortable for you. Slow and steady, no need to do them super fast. Keep the weight on your heels and your knees over your ankles for that perfect form.
When doing your pulse squats, you are simply squatting in a low position. You do not come up all the way as in a full squat, but only in low pulse rhythms. Be sure to to watch the video to see it in action.
Back and Side Leg Lifts
To do back leg lifts (or sometimes called reverse leg lifts), you simply stand holding the stroller for support, feet shoulder width apart and lift your leg back as high as you can go for ten to fifteen reps. Again, check your posture and balance. Make sure to do both legs.
You do side leg lifts (or lateral leg lifts) the same, except your legs go to the side at about a 45 degree angle to work the obliques (the mom muffin- what I like to call it).
Make sure to breathe in and out whilst doing these exercises to also engage your abs or abs to be in my case!
