Stroller Training - Weight Loss Fat Burning Tips
Okay moms, time to get out of the house! You have your baby and
it seems you just cannot find time to exercise or even pee for that
matter! Well the first thing you need to do is go out and buy a
good running stroller with the proper protection and wheels for
all weather. Get those sneakers out of the closet and dust them
off because it's time for you and baby to get some fresh air, exercises
and in babies case a cool ride! Outings are crucial not only for
the child but for your sanity!
Many babies feel soothed by being strolled and usually stay quiet
allowing you the full benefit of at least an hours worth of interval
You can go to a trail or a track and get a get fat burning and
muscle toning training day in with a bit of creativity. The intervals
will be a set of 20 of an exercise then 2 minute of a light jog,
repeating this process for 13 minutes with 2 minutes walk rest,
cycling this 3-4 times equaling 45 minutes to an hour.
Most moms have similar goals such as fat loss, toning, tightening
the lower body and stomach plus most do want to just generally get
It's hard to run if you are still lactating but you can try light
jogging until you are less sensitive. For the first 2 minutes you
should simply walk for a short warm up, then proceed to the first
exercise and so on.
At the end of your workout you will also want to just walk, stopping
to stretch areas such as the thighs, calves and chest but for 15-30
seconds only, and then walk again for a minute before you do the
next stretch. This will cool you down so that the blood does not
pool in the legs causing you to get light headed.
Exercise choices should consist of leg and body weight work which
can be done quickly, easily and efficiently.
My suggestion would be to choose from the below which are all located
at the Shapefit exercises
Jump squats are excellent for the thighs and glutes but
they also get your heart rate up so that you burn a higher amount
of fat. You also have to utilize your abdominals and back to keep
Side lunges hit the same areas as the above (an option is
that you can bring small weights along and use them if you please,
it is more intense so your goals will come faster).
Rear lunges are another exercise hitting the above muscles but involve
extra coordination which increases your body conditioning.
Calve raises are a great addition for an easier interval
since they do not require too much effort but they do concentrate
on the calves helping to shape them as a compliment to the leg.
Walking lunges really target the glutes if you concentrate
carefully but they are also great thigh thinners helping tighten
the inner and outer thigh.
Step ups using a step or curb or even a rock if you are
at a trail will help maximize the fat burning as it gets your heart
rate up just like the jump squats.
Front shoulder raises are a nice addition to help tone the
shoulder making the waist appear smaller and giving an overall fitness
look.Pushups off an outdoor bench help with upper body strength
but will also give you a little 'bust' toning.
Lastly there are tricep dips also done off an outdoor bench
which help to tone the upper arm and eliminate underarm flap!
