Fun Fitness Workout Routines for Mums and Babes

Losing all the extra pounds you gained during pregnancy can be difficult especially when you take care of your baby most of the time. What makes it more difficult is that when you're unable to find enjoyable ways to lose weight and you become demotivated about the idea. Here are some fun ways by which you can exercise while looking after your little one.

Swimming - Swimming is cardio workout that is stress-free for your joints. It can also help your tired muscles to relax specifically when you're swimming on a warm pool. Swimming allows your baby to move freely and explore her instincts for water. Try early morning trips to kiddie pools so that you can enjoy a lot of free pool space with your baby or toddler.

Strollercise - Yes, you can shed those extra pounds while pushing your baby on a stroller. This is a good way for both of you to enjoy some sunshine and a breath of fresh air in the morning. You can go solo or you can go with your other mom friends.

Calisthenics - This can be done in your own bedroom. With calisthenics, you don't have to do crunches and sit-ups which can be difficult for you since you've just given birth. You simply have to do lunges, squats, push-ups, calf raises and other rhythmic exercises to get your body back in shape. For support, use an exercise ball with the right size.
