Kids and At-Home Workouts
Updated: Oct 2, 2020
Quarantine forever changed the way moms exercise
Kids and at-home workouts. Those were words I rarely combined in one sentence. The gym was my happy place. I’d wake up at 4am like the Energizer-bunny to workout before my "real day" started. More than a workout, it was a way to get some well-deserved ME time that I rarely get after 6am.
People called me crazy because I didn't sleep in like a normal human being, but I looked forward to my cardio session powered by Netflix (VIS A VIS is a must!) and my PR (personal record) when deadlifting some heavy weight.
“More than a workout, going to the gym was my way to get some well-deserved ME time...”
But things changed, and not for the better. Yes, of course. I am talking about the guy that ate the bat and now everything is closed. Including the gym.
There were days prior to the infamous COVID-19 when I snoozed the alarm 10 times and stayed in bed. For those days, I had my plan B to save my day.
Having a mini home-gym is a good idea when you decide to ignore the sound of the alarm or you just prefer to avoid gyms. What’s great about it is that you don’t really have to spend thousands of dollars on equipment or necessarily take up all the space in your garage. I have a 3-set of dumbbells, a great-quality glute band and a yoga mat. All this equipment was #foundonamazon.
My At-Home Leg Workout
I exercised at home, with my 2-year-old right next to me. WINNER!
I thought it would be impossible to finish the workout with my toddler, but it turned out to be so much fun. Give it a try! Always remember, not all good home gyms should cost a fortune.
