10 Minute Mother’s Workout
We are here with a great strength exercise to keep up with your busy pace. Practice these 10-minute routines three times a week to feel stronger and slimmer.
Practice the exercises in a loop. You should do each exercise set with little rest in between. Drink some water when all sets are done and then repeat the cycle two more times.
Sit on the edge of a chair with your hands directly opposite your hips. Slide your hips towards the edge of the chair and bend your elbows 90 degrees. Try to keep your back close to the chair and then go back. Repeat the exercise 10-12 times.
Stand in front of a chair with your feet hip-width apart and toes pointing forward. Tilt your chest forward a little. Bend your knees and touch the chair lightly, but don’t sit down. Stand up. Put your weight on your heels and keep your knees ahead of your toes. Repeat the exercise 10-12 times.
Lie on your back and touch the soles of your feet. You should keep your knees out. Bring your hands behind your head with your elbows out. Tighten your abdominal muscles, lift your chest and shoulders. Then take your back back. Repeat the exercise 10-12 times.
Lean back with your knees bent. Bring your left ankle over your other knee. Take your right hand behind your head and raise your right shoulder towards your left knee. Sit back. Repeat the exercise 10-12 times and switch to the other side.
Take a push-up position with your knees touching the floor. Raise your arms and feet. Your hands should open slightly wider than your chest. Your head, neck and hips should be at the same height. Squeeze your abdominal muscles, bend your elbows and move your lower chest to the floor. Get back again. Repeat the exercise 10-12 times.
Standing Hip Extension
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Put your weight on your right foot and stretch your left foot back. Lift and lower your left foot and squeeze your hip. You can get help from the chair for balance. Repeat the exercise 10-12 times and switch to the other side.
Place your right foot on an elevation or step board, and then climb onto the ridge with your left foot. Move your left foot back to its former position (about 30 cm back). Bring your right foot next to your left foot. Repeat 12 reps and you should always keep your chest ahead during the exercise. Then start with the other side and repeat. Add dumbbells to your exercise over time.
