Mommy & Baby At Home Fitness

A busier Baby results in a busier Mommy.

Looking back to when Jackson was born, the first 3-4 months was a major adjustment but I still had a lot of time. He slept a lot and stayed still so I could plan my workout schedule around his nap schedule and everything seemed to flow.

Fast forward to today and now life is completely different! Jackson is up longer and if I’m lucky he will nap for an hour and during that time I can quickly either have a shower or clean up the mess (the never ending mess!). He’s also crawling and exploring our entire home and eating every spec off the floor. I literally need eyes in the back of my head!

With my busier life I’ve had to make a few adjustments with my workout strategy. There are days that I just can’t make it to the gym now, and yes, that even includes getting to my home gym that’s in my basement! I still try my best to get in 2-3 lifting sessions per week but the rest of my time is spent on convenient and effective bodyweight exercises and metabolic circuits. Thankfully all the exercises I can do in Jackson’s company – which he loves especially watching me huff and puff.

One of my favorite upper body combos are Baby Overhead Presses and Push-ups.




Mommy and Jackson push ups

1A. Baby Overhead Press – 12-15 reps

1B. Push-Ups – 12-15 reps

Rest for 60 seconds

Repeat 5 times.

Jackson is demonstrating the modified version of the push-up haha!
