Mommy + Baby Postpartum Workout: Arms
This mommy baby workout is simple and only requires two things: mom and baby. With these exercises, you can increase your arm strength while occupying your little one!
You may have seen the first video in my Mommy + Baby Postpartum Workout Series, where I show you exercises for your legs and butt. Today, we’re bringing it up to the arms.
While you’ve probably gained a lot of upper body strength just from picking up your little one on the daily, I’m showing you three more arm exercises that you can do using your baby as your weight – no dumbbells required!
This mommy and baby ab workout includes 3 exercises:
- Curl Shoulder Press
- Bear Crawl
- Sit-Up Press
I recommend you do 10-15 reps or 30-16 seconds for each exercise, and repeat each set 3-4 more times, 1-2 times a week.
Before beginning a new exercise routine, you should always check with your doctor to make sure it’s safe for you to exercise – especially postpartum.
Additionally, if any of the exercises feel unsafe for you and your child, don’t do them! As baby grows, it may become too challenging to support his weight in some of these positions.
