- Full Body Squat- this exercise is the same concept as doing squats with a forty-five pound bar with weights on each side. Keeping your feet shoulder width apart and squatting all the way down like you’re sitting in a chair. Making sure to keep your back straight the whole time. Adding a weight or something heavy to hold in the front is something else that can be done as well.
- Planks- start by laying on your stomach and then getting up on your toes and elbows and hold that position for thirty to sixty seconds and do this at least three to five times. Make sure that your back stays flat and level with your body and to pull in your stomach towards your back.
- Jumping Jacks- this exercise is when a person begins to jump to a position that the legs and arms are spread out and then a person jumps back to the starting position.
- Tricep Dips- these can be done off a table or a bench, depending on where you are. Just sit with the back against the table, put your hands on the table behind you, and then put your legs straight out in front of you. Then push up with your arms, lifting your buttocks, keeping your legs straight and staying on the heels of your foot.
There are so many more exercises that can be done that can target all areas at once or certain specific areas. It does not matter how busy a mom may be there is always time or a way to get a workout in. Sometimes it can’t be a good hour long cardio session mixed with strength training, but getting a workout in that day still gives you the benefits that exercising gives.
