Upping My Workout With Kids
1. Devote my planned workout time to the DVD workout of choice.
2. Do 1 minute intervals throughout the day...how many push-ups can I do in a minute? How many burpees? Hold plank. Squat thrust. Plyos. Lunges. Crunches. Roll-ups. Sit ups. How long can I hang from the chin-up bar, etc.
3. Go for evening walks with the kiddos. If it isn't storming or sweltering out, I can strap the baby to my body, and load the other three into the stroller and go for a walk with them. It's a mile round trip from my house to the top of the hill and back again. 1 mile with nearly 100 lbs of kiddos is a good workout, especially since it is a slight grade uphill on the return with a fairly steep hill finish. Plus, it relaxes and soothes kiddos who are getting fussy and tired from their day.
Any other ideas?
