How many of you have tried to get a workout in while your child naps?? I have had numerous unsuccessful attempts at workouts and then I have had some that fit in perfectly with Ava’s nap schedule.
Ava’s naps are pretty consistent except if her teeth are bothering her or she’s sick. Then I never know how long she will sleep! Tuesday at around 4:15pm Ava fell asleep. I wrote up a QUICK workout that I knew I could squeeze in even if she didn’t sleep long. This workout is definitely great for busy moms or people looking to fit in some exercise with a tight schedule.
I first performed a 5 minute warm up, alternating between jogging in place, jumping jacks, and butt kicks.
I then set a timer for 10 minutes and completed this workout:
I was working hard and fast during this workout, my heart rate was high and I was dripping sweat…. I completed 7 rounds which put me at 70 PUSHUPS, 105 SQUATS, 140 SIT-UPS, and 175 JUMPING JACKS! Not bad for a quick bodyweight workout. Plus Ava was still asleep when I completed it, WIN!!
I was feeling ambitious after and completed 25 minutes of a Kickbox Cardio Burn workout on TV. I’m slightly obsessed with it. If you have Verizon Fios check it out, Sensei Guillermo is pretty intense.
I was fortunate that Ava woke up JUST AS I FINISHED:)
Have you ever had to end a workout because you were interrupted by a baby, an important phone call, etc?
Do you like working out at home?
