Mommies, let’s be honest. Not everyone is an athletic fitness gym extraordinaire. Once we give birth, we don’t suddenly transform to the female versions of Rocky, even though the pressure we place on ourselves believe otherwise. You want your pre-baby body back? You have to find that balance you are going to STICK WITH! If you never hit the gym 3 hours a clip before your baby, you might not be able to get into that regimen after. And that is OKAY! Here are three of my at-home exercise essentials for the mommy just starting to get into her fitness routine! Disclosure: this post contains some affiliate links.
Strength Stack 52 Fitness Cards
These little cards pack a major punch! Each card offers one exercise, whether it is strength training, cardio, or ab strengthening. The card gives you specific instructions on form and duration. Perfect for the mommy that travels, or the mommy who is tight on space and time! I love these cards. When I have a spare minute or two I shuffle and throw a couple down! You can order them here.
A Little Resistance Goes a Long Way!
Loving these exercise resistance bands by Supremus Sports! Each color has a different intensity on resistance. You can wrap these around your ankles for an awesome thigh workout, or simply pull at them for a great chest and arm workout. Perfect addition to your makeshift mommy gym! And you can do this anywhere! Whether you are helping out with the homework or fixing a quick lunch! You can find them here.
Step it Up!
I think a stepper is the perfect exercise staple that you can hide in a closet or under the bed! You can do a step workout on YouTube, simply walk on the thing, or leap up and down for joy! Nothing gets your butt and thighs in tip top shape like a simple step! Add some weights to the mix and you have an incredible workout! Find it here.
Add these three items to your at home workout to spice things up! Consistency is key, so take small steps…but definitely keep stepping through your journey!
