I used to get so frustrated when I would try to workout from home and my kids would interrupt me. I remember so many times when I would just quit in the middle of my workout, throw my hands up in defeat, and think to myself “What’s the point? I can’t even finish one set without the baby wanting to be held.”
Somewhere along the way I realized that it’s ok if I have to take breaks because the kids need something. It’s ok if I have to modify an exercise so I can do it while holding the baby. It’s ok if I need to slow down a little on my sprints so that my kids can beat me. Just doing something is what mattered. I gave myself permission to lose the all-or-nothing mentality, and that is what made all the difference.
Here is the workout!
Do 3 sets of supersets* before moving on to the next superset.
Run for 45-60 seconds in between each superset.
Rest 1-2 minutes in between each exercise.
*Superset means doing two exercises back to back with no rest in between.
1a) Stability Ball Hamstring Curl x 12
1b) Plank for 30 seconds.
2a) Curtsy Lunges with dumbbells in hand x 8
2b) Body Weight Curtsy Lunges x 8
3a) Ski Jumpers (side to side quick hops) x 10
3b) Burpees x 10
4a) Side to Side Fast Shuffle for 30 seconds.
4b) Calf Raises x 25
That’s it! Let me know what you think and if your kids joined in!
