Moms, Strengthen Your Arms With This Amazing Free Resource

If you’re a new mother and you want toned arms and a tighter body, you likely have everything you need already.  The best tool you will ever use is free, cute and you're already in love---it's your baby! 

Most mothers are often short on time, and hitting the gym isn’t always feasible.  When babies are babies, you don’t get much alone time, that's why working out with your baby is a great way to maximize your time. 

You can get in great shape without expensive gym memberships, equipment or time wasted.

Here are a few moves that will give you stellar arms.

Make Your Kid a Part of the Workout

Don’t look at your baby as an obstacle, look at your baby as a strengthening tool.

One thing you can do is use a baby carrier that allows you to position your baby to the front or the back, depending on the workout you will be doing. In some cases, you can make your child your weight, to create resistance and build muscle.


Here are your baby friendly work out moves!

Hanging Tight

With your baby secure in a carrier attached firmly against your body, you will hang from a solid, sturdy structure or tree limb for 30 seconds.  To do so effectively keep your lats and shoulders engaged.Make sure everything is tight and activated for the entire time. Keep in mind, if you can't hang easily for at least thirty seconds without your baby attached to you, skip this exercise until you are strong enough.

Monkey Bars

If you have monkey bars at a kids park nearby, you can use those for yourself. It works by swinging one hand in front of the other to pull yourself from bar to bar. You can also use a strong tree branch or suspected bar as well. Here’s how you do monkey bars exercise when you aren’t using real monkey bars.

Use the monkey bars or do the monkey bar exercise for at least 15 to 30 seconds at a time, 3 sets.

Push Ups

With your baby secure to your back, use a flat wall either indoors or outdoors.

Place your palms chest-high on a wall in front of you. Step back about two feet away from the wall. Slowly lean into the wall, bending your elbows and inhaling for a count of five. Slowly return to start, exhaling for a count of five. Aim for three sets of 10.

Baby in the Sky

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees soft. Hold your baby below his armpits, close to your chest. Slowly lift your baby straight up overhead; hold at the top, then lower down to starting position and repeat. Do 12 to 15 reps.

Push Up and Kiss Me!

Rest your child on their back and get into a raised, modified push-up position with your knees on the floor and your hands a little more than shoulder-width apart. Bend elbows out to the sides and lower chest toward the floor. Give your baby a kiss at the bottom of the move, then push back up to starting position and repeat. Do 12 to 15 reps.

Important Note to Mothers

When your working out with your kids, remember that their safety is crucial.  

Wear your baby high on your torso, close enough to kiss is a good rule. Support baby's head if necessary.Don't allow baby's feet to dangle and make sure baby's face is always visible. Keep two fingers of space between baby's chin and chest, particularly if they cannot yet lift their head.
