Little Boo + Me Fullbody Workout

Are you ready for the first Little Boo + Me #sculptbyal??

I know for me, Little Boo hates when I do anything that takes my attention away from her. So when it comes time to workout I rarely get more than twenty minutes in before she’s screaming for me with her arms reaching up at me to pick her up. That’s what makes this workout so perfect for SAHMs and anyone with a little one running about; this combines traditional exercises while incorporating your little(s)!  

What you’ll need:

• a small child, a toddler is best suited for these specific exercises since they require the child to hold on

Ready?? Lessssdodis!

 

squat + lift / squat to overhead press 4×10

•while holding your toddler by their underarms, make sure your feet are planted on the floor slightly wider than shoulder width apart 

•keep your back and pelvis neutral and squat down to chair height 

•pause for 2 seconds

•come back to standing position, repeat 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Little Boo bench press 3×12
