While SO much of motherhood can be new and, quite frankly, daunting, one thing doesn't have to be; moving your body for your mental and physical health. Each day, claim some time for yourself (and for your baby) to get moving with your stroller. It doesn't have to be a lot...just invest some time into your self-care. Here are some ways from Fit Pregnancy and FIT4MOM to add in a little strength work on your next walk or run:
- Add in a plie squat for thigh and hip strength and stability. Be sure, at your lowest point, that your knees are stacked over your ankles, not your toes.
- Create some great glute strength in a stroller squat. Be mindful to squeeze your glutes at the top of the squat.
- Find a curb or a step and add in some calf raises. Keep your knees slightly bent.
- Add in a walking lunge sequence into your walk or run. Keep front knee over the ankle and drive the step up with your front leg. Make it a big and powerful step!
Try not to overthink the taking care of you. It can be simply done and the mind/body benefits are HUGE! To find a group of wonderful moms to share this gorgeous motherhood journey with check out FIT4MOM in your community. We all need our village!
