Mommy & Me At-Home Workout

February 20, 2015 3 min read

Here's a quick all over workout that you can do from the comfort of your own home with just you and your baby! Complete 3 sets of 12 reps for each exercise: Baby Russian Twists cloth_diaper
  • Sit on the ground with your knees bent and your heels about a foot from your butt.
  • Lean slightly back without rounding your spine.
  •  Holding your baby, place your arms straight out in front of you.
  • Pull your navel to your spine and twist slowly to the left. The movement is not large and comes from the ribs rotating, not from your arms swinging. Inhale through center and rotate to the right.
  • This completes one rep.
Kissy Baby Sit Ups cloth_diaper
  • Have your knees bent and the balls of your feet and heels placed flat on the ground.
  • Hold your baby at your waist or torso, sitting firmly.
  • Tighten your abdominal muscles gently by drawing in your belly button to your spine
  • Keeping your heels on the ground and your toes flat to the ground, slowly and gently lift your head first, followed by your shoulder blades. Focus your eyes on your baby, all the while gently contracting the abdominal muscles.
  • Hold the position for a second. I love giving my baby a kiss when I come up!
  • Slowly bring the torso back to the floor but try to keep it slightly elevated off the ground.
Baby Back Squats cloth_diaper
  • Stand tall with your feet hip width apart and your arms out in front of you, holding your baby.
  • Start to lower your body back as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees and pushing your body weight into your heels.
  • Keep a neutral spine at all times and never let your knees go over your toes
  • The lower body should be parallel with the floor and your chest should be lifted at all times not rounded.
  • Pause then lift back up in a controlled movement to the starting position, holding your baby out in front of you.
Baby Presses cloth_diaper
  • Lay on the yoga mat on your back.
  • Holding your baby perpendicular to your chest, place on hand on baby's chest and the other hand at baby's legs/abdomen.
  • Using both arms, slowly lift baby up pausing for a second.
  • Slowly lift baby back downward.
  • Repeat
Upward Baby Lifts cloth_diaper
  • Standing tall, hold your baby with both hands at your chest.
  • Slowly, lift baby upwards into the air in a controlled manner. Pause.
  • Slowly, bring baby back down to your chest.
  • Repeat.
Baby Planking cloth_diaper
  • Start off on a yoga mat in the pushup position with your baby lying beneath you, on his or her back.
  • Lower both your forearms to the ground so that both your elbows and fists are flat to the ground.
  • Curl your toes under and engage your abs by tilting your pelvis and pulling your belly button toward your spine, making sure you do not touch your baby. This adds more to the challenge.
  • Straighten your body but keep your neck and spine neutral. Imagine that you’re a plank of wood, and that you’re straight as an arrow.
  • Flex your abdominals and squeeze your glutes. These are the two major muscle groups you’ll be working out in this exercise.
  • Hold this position, also known as the plank, for 60 seconds.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
