As you all know, my main exercise of choice is Crossfit, however it is not something I can do all day when I am home full time with a baby. D is helping me reach my goals by meeting me at the gym after work to grab the baby and I am able to get to the gym about 3-4 times a week which is great, but I also can’t sit around all day, especially on days that I don’t make it to the gym. So here is what I have been doing at home that can be done with both baby and dog.
- 30 – 40 minute walk with dog and baby in tow.
- 60 air squats
- 50 walking lunges
- 20 side lunges
- 300m sprints x2
- 60 sit-ups
- 20 leg raises
- 40 bicycle crunches
I am super lucky to have public tennis courts in my neighbourhood. Since it is the winter, no one is using it and it makes for a great gated spot to let Lucy off leash to chase her ball and for me to get some body weight movements in! Once I am home I then do a short ab circuit and I’m done!
I have been trying to do this everyday. Some days we only do the walk, but it is great for Lucy to get a nice run in (I try to discourage running while on leash) or I would love to do morning jogs with her too. For now, this is a great way to get us moving and to keep my pup happy!
How do you get your workouts while juggling baby and puppy?
Until next time daydreamers.
