Baby Got Arms

July 23, 2013 2 min read

Here is my baby blaster arm workout. I can include my daughter and have her be an active part of my workout. This makes it easier on both of us and I like that she gets to see me doing physical exercise. That being said, babies take a lot of time. Those little adorable jerks. This makes working out a time sensitive, rushed situation. The second that cute little bugger wakes up, workout is over and you can forget about the shower. I literally went to the gym for 28 minutes the other day… 28 minutes. And no, I didn't get a shower. Because of these facts, I have tried to include my daughter in my workouts. I know there are a million "mommy and me" type classes but I personally don't find them challenging enough and because the child is usually attached to you, it limits the movements you can do. By placing my daughter in her Jolly-Jumper i am able to clip and unclip her when needed and use her (fairly) safely as a weight. I want to pause a moment and say that if you are unsure of your skill level, do not include your child in your workout. I often practise yoga with her on my mat and I am confident that I can do a chataranga without falling on her.   Here is what my workout looks like: Warm up - simple 5 to 10 minute warm up of light cardio. I like skipping or high knees as they are easy to walk away from and do in a small space. set 1:  baby bicep curls x 10  baby arms  downward dog push ups x10  [caption id="attachment_9707" align="alignnone" width="300"]downward dog push up downward dog push up[/caption] baby shoulder press x10  baby shoulder press
baby shoulder press
rest and tickle time  set 2:  plank x30 seconds  baby bent rows x10  baby arms4 mountain climbers x30 seconds kiss the baby push ups x max I repeat each set 3 times. DO NOT USE THE BABY IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR FITNESS LEVEL Dogs also work. I'm not joking. Ask my 60 lbs jerkdog. She 'loves' it.   I also suggest having a spotter the first time your try this.   I find this a great way to get an arm blaster in while I am at home. It isn't the same as an actual gym workout but it is just enough to get me through to my next fix. I have a very long road to recovery thanks to my 30 second c-section but by cramming in little workouts, I feel that I am improving my physical and mental state and I can face the day in a very positive, happy way.   You know when you go to the bank and they say something like 'five dollars in your savings account is better than no dollars..' I like to apply the same logic to my workouts. I can't workout for long and often have to stop in the middle but if I at least try I feel so much better. You don't have to win the marathon, you just have to take a few steps.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
