Before Christmas I borrowed a couple of fitness books from the library and while they are good books with plenty of ideas and workouts to follow I decided to tailor a workout to suite me and my day.
I do this 15 minute workout everyday. If I don’t then I find that I find that I ‘forget’ to get up and do it. The most convenient time for me is around 6 am in the morning before my little one gets up because this is my ‘me’ time.
While I didn’t really start with any routine in mind, I decided to work on areas of my body that would benefit from my exercising and where I would see the difference. For me this is my biceps, triceps, deltoids, pectorals, back, stomach, gluteal muscles and thighs.
The easiest way to exercise these parts of the body is to find the moves that work for you (for example, ‘bicycles’ strains my neck so I just do the leg movements and have my hands under my head while I lay down) and do them working down the body from the arms to the legs so no areas are missed.
To fit everything in 15 minutes I don’t rest between sets, instead I alternate between 2 exercises at a time moving straight into one move from another.
So all your yummy mummy’s out there I recommend these books to you so you can find you 15 minute mummy routine or feel free to follow mine 🙂
