New mom and baby exercisies

If you are a new mom and looking for some exercises to do with your little one.  Here are some fun ideas from Our Five Favorite Mom And Baby Exercises by Oh Baby Fitness.

The five exercises listed below make an awesome workout and can be so much fun for you and the baby.  Think about doing this outdoors with the baby to enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful spring weather.

1. Baby Deadlifts

Using the baby instead of weights is a way to bond with baby and have tons of fun. To perform this, hold your baby under his armpits while keeping your back straight, chest lifted and knees soft. Lower baby until his feet touch the ground, then pull with the backs of your legs to come back to standing. Take 3 sets of 15 to strengthen your hamstrings and glutes.

2. Stairs Walking

This exercise is  good way to start to build up your strength and get your heart pumping. Hold baby close to your chest and make sure your entire foot is on each step for safety. Try to take 10 flights, but be sure you don’t compromise safety for speed.

3. Baby Bicep Curls

Your baby will be cooing with this one. Hold your baby face down horizontally, engage your abs while lifting your pelvic floor, then curl baby up and give a big belly kiss. Try for a set of 20, or as many as your giggling baby allows.

4. Push Ups

This one focuses on the chest, triceps and abdominal muscles. Inhale as you lower towards baby, kiss his belly and then exhale as you push back up. Try for 3 sets of 15 today.

5. Bridge

And to end your workout try some serious glute and hamstring work. Place your baby on your hips facing you, dig your heels into the mat and exhale as you lift your hips. Return to the ground or hover your hips between reps to make it more difficult. Try for a set of 30.

Now after you have started this fun routine with baby, schedule a portrait session for you and your little one to show off the new you.  What a great treat for you and the baby!
