5 FUNCTIONAL EXERCISES
FOR BUSY MOMS
Join us and strengthen your body with these 5 movements that replicate your daily activities.
When you're a busy mom, functional exercise is so important!
Lower down onto one knee, then the other. Step back to standing by pushing through your heel. Do 10-15 reps then switch legs!
(aka "Play with us, Mommy")
Squat and reach toward your right foot, then stand and rotate to reach up to your left. Repeat on the other side after 10-15 reps.
(aka "Put the groceries away")
Laundry basket, toy bucket, toddler - no matter what it is, you need a strong lower body for lifting! Squat, lift, lower, repeat.
(aka "Pick up the laundry basket ")
Grab a small stool for this one. Step up and reach for the lightbulb (or that toy you hid on the fridge).
STEP & REACH
(aka "Change the lightbulb ")
Where do all those socks come from? Balance on one leg as you reach toward the floor, then squeeze your glutes to come back to standing.
SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT
(aka "Pick up all the socks ")
Functional training is perfect for anyone who wants to improve their strength and ability in daily activities - not just moms! If you have kids, get them involved too and make it fun!
Aim for 10-15 reps of each move, starting with 1 set and working up to 3 sets.
