Working out with a new baby can be tough! Its hard to find the time they’re not crying, hungry, or wet. It seems like every time you think “oh this is the perfect time!” Something goes wrong.. UGH! Well this is a great way to workout but also incorporate your little love so they stay happy!! Win-win! 🙂 This baby carrier mama & mini workout is perfect for an awesome sweat session! All you need for this workout is yourself, baby and a carrier to put baby in! I’m using the Infantino Carry on Carrier. I love this carrier because its easy to put on and adjust, and fits me and baby comfortably! 🙂
Sumo Squat 3×10
With the sumo squat you want your feet out wider than a normal squat. A lot of people tend to turn their toes almost all the way out! Don’t do that! When you turn your toes out too much, you lose torque or the power from your legs when you come up. You can have your toes turned out slightly like I do and make sure your knees stay aligned with your toes! 🙂
Walking Lunge 3×10 (5 each leg)
In the walking lunge you’re simply just moving! Every time you perform a forward lunge and step forward, take another big step with the other foot and lunge again!
Lateral Lunge 3×10 (5 each leg)
The lateral lunge is a lunge out to your side! You want most of your weight over your leg that is bent, then stand back up and lunge to the other side.

Crab Walk 3×30 steps
You will start in a half squat position for the crab walk, meaning you are not down to the depth of a normal squat. Stay down low while bringing one foot forward at a time!
Squat with Side Raise 3×10
Here you are doing a normal squat! When you come up from the squat, raise one leg up to the side, squat again then raise the other leg up!
I hope you enjoyed this workout Mamas!
