If you’ve browsed around this website at all, you’ll gather that I’m pretty passionate about the 90-minute Bikram Yoga class. It fills my tank in every way – mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and getting time for myself; however, with baby #3 on the horizon, I’m strategizing about some quicker workouts I can do at home, especially in those first months after the baby is born. Heck, my first two kids didn’t let me go more than 60 minutes without nursing them! Exercise provides such an endorphin high, which is essential as other pregnancy hormones are settling back down.
If you’re crunched for time and need some fast and effective workout ideas, check out the 8 workouts here!
From Pop Sugar Fitness
The great thing about this exercise is not only that it is super quick and effective, but also the baby will probably get a huge kick out of watching me do it!
Jump Rope Workout
From Pop Sugar Fitness
I love that the only piece of equipment you need for this insanely effective workout is a jump rope. Talk about low maintenance!
Wake Up & Workout
From Through The Burn
I love how simple and straightforward this workout is – and of course how fast and effective it is as well.
Exercise Through The Alphabet
This one totally resonated with me as I am in the trenches of motherhood. If you’re going to be singing the ABC’s, you may as well be sweating to them as well!
If running is your thing, I love these ideas for treadmill workouts. Simply setting and forgetting the speed and incline can get quite boring, but switch things up and your treadmill workout will be over before you know it!
From Eating Bird Food
I would be remiss if I did not include some at-home yoga routines, given how important I find yoga to be! I love this morning yoga routine from the website Eating Bird Food – it’s accessible to beginner and advanced yogis alike!
From Get Healthy U
The great things about these yoga poses is that they are beginner-friendly, therapeutic, and rejuvenating. In other words, I love modalities of sweating (like yoga) that help and improve other modalities of sweating (like running, burpees, jump-roping, etc.) Not only with yoga poses like these help you feel great in your other workouts, but they’ll help you feel your best all day long!
