5 months ago I had my second little one and I knew I wanted to start working out as soon as I got the green light from my physician. I started out with walking around my neighborhood and getting my family to walk around lakes and we even took trips to Disney! I dropped the 15 pounds I gained during pregnancy but now It’s time to tone my body. Since I’m exclusively breastfeeding, I can’t really go ham like I would in the past because I want to make sure I’m maintaining my milk supply.
This is where trying to eat more vegetables and salads come in and I start my at home workouts until I feel comfortable leaving my infant to go to the gym for an hour.
I have all the equipment I purchased so I’m using what I have and making the best of the only 10 minutes I can put into my workouts for now.
So many are asking me to share my workout routines so I decided to get back on it with the basics and I’ll add more based on what I’m doing! Here’s my current 10-minute workout!
10 MINUTE WORKOUT ROUTINE
1-minute warm-up – Run in place
3 Sets of Squats (2:30 second minutes)
3 Sets of arm curls – 5lb weights (3 minutes)
3 Sets of kickbacks – use a booty band (3 minutes)
30 second Plank
I try to do this before a shower and make sure I’m using proper form. If you don’t have 2 5lbs dumbells, use two soup cans. Make sure you’re sitting in your squat and hold your core in as you do these workouts! If you’re easing back into your workout, this will feel like you spent an hour in the gym! Mom-friendly and time friendly!
Let me know how you make time for your workouts in the comments below! I’d love to try your tips!
