The 10 Minute Mommy Workout

by - April 04, 2018

If you are anything like me then the #momlife is a busy one. My 18 month old, Milo, has an incredible way of keeping me on my toes. It is so true what they say... Toddler chasing really is my cardio! I also don't always have the ability, time, or desire to get dressed and hit the gym. In this post I have compiled a quick and easy full body workout that you can do in 10 minutes or less... from anywhere! Even from home in your pajamas with your hair undone and no makeup! Can you say SCORE! Each one of these movements target a common problem area for most mommas.

So without further ado let's get into the quick and easy workout that will soon become your favorite: The 10 Minute Mommy Workout!

  • 15 Sumo Squats 

Stand with feet wider than shoulder-width apart and your toes slightly turned out. Hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of your hips. Push your hips back and squat down, keeping your chest up and knees out. Bring the weights down to the floor in between your legs. You can remove the weight if you are just starting out and increase it as you get stronger. 

  • 15 Push Ups

With your arms straight, butt clenched, and abs braced, steadily lower yourself until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle or smaller. Once your chest touches the floor, or your arms go down to a 90 degree angle, pause slightly and then lift yourself back up until you’re back in the starting position. You can modify this movement until you are strong enough to perform it properly by bracing yourself with your knees instead of your feet.

  • 30 Second Plank

Get into pushup position on the floor. Now bend your elbows 90° and rest your weight on your forearms. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold the position for 30 second or as long as you can.

  • 15 Bicycle Crunches

Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground. Put your hands behind your head, then bring one of your knees in towards your chest and lift your shoulder blades off the ground, but be sure not to pull on your neck. Straighten your right leg out to about a 45-degree angle to the ground while turning your upper body to the side, bringing your elbow towards your inward knee. Make sure your rib cage is moving and not just your elbows. Now switch sides and do the same motion on the other side to complete one rep.

To Increase the intensity of this workout try increasing reps as you get stronger and adding weights such as:
