Working out and keeping fit doesn’t need to be mutually exclusive when you are a mum. Take a cue from these Instagram mums who share workouts that you can do with your little ones. Proceed with caution though as some of the movements require quite a bit acrobatic movement.

We all usually have our babies in a stroller when we bring them out so why not get some exercise in while we are at it.
A little late for #workoutwednesday, but I'm excited to bring you another fun stroller workout with baby. ??As part of @wavhello's Body After Baby campaign, I'll be sharing a video each week for a month showing you how to sneak a workout in with your baby. ?To sign up for the FREE Body After Baby Program and to get FULL LENGTH VIDEOS, type this link into your browser: www.bit.ly/2oc6ikw We are using our #SoundBub to play music for my daughter. She's in love with this thing and we take it everywhere we go. It's definitely a fit mom's go to portable workout speaker haha.?

Doing thigh exercises while breastfeeding may not look pretty, but it’s better to be burning calories than just sitting on a chair if you are looking for some time to exercise.
Real mom life. I got to the gym all pumped and focused to get a solid workout in. But who am I kidding?? Mom life never goes as planned ? I set my timer for 15 minutes then Tate instantly got fussy and hungry. So I plopped him onto nurse and tried to keep my focus and finish my workout ? Gotta do what you gotta do ?? Working out with kids takes patience and you constantly have to adapt BUT every little bit counts!!!! Stay motivated!! ??#MakeMondayGreatAgain

Doing the mountain climber while playing with your kid is a good way to burn calories without compromising on building a strong bond with your little one.
I'm going to go ahead and call this one my "Boppy" workout ?? Little man decided to wake up from his nap while I was in the middle of my workout, so I brought him into the studio with me and took him for a little ride. He got a kick out of it and I got one heck of a workout pushing all 16lbs of him around! ?? If you try it out, tag me and #RLGboppyworkout so I can see you in action ; ) #rlgfitness #boppypillow #QuinnBraxton [wearing @someshop.com.au] @boppycompany

You get a workout pushing the kids back and forth in a basket and your little ones have lots of fun while seated inside – sounds like a win-win situation to us.
Nardia – @fitdastruggle
Carrying an extra weight around means that you will get a better workout, so why no strap your kid on even when you are doing basic workouts.
In the gym recording day 66 video , next thing I know I feel little hands and feet grab a hold of me and jump on my back. It's like nothing to me now just kept it going. Day 66 of #bbb100 with #OmiO. Even when I tried getting her to go hang with her sister she rather grab her little weights and when she tried changing out her weights to the 5lbs because she heard me say I'm changing mine ??. – Do this complete workout with us at bit.ly/bodylabtv – Workout belt by @ultimatecurve use discount code "STRUGUC "

Use your baby as a weight as you work your abs. We love how Juca’s older kids are trying their best to join in with their own baby dolls.
Abs and legs day ? Do you like abs exercises? Which are your favorits? Mine is these with my cuties ?

Have your infant rest on you as you work out your core.
Core workout with my sweet partner???Great exercises for your abs/core if you have diastasis??Try to engage your core while doing these exercises and perform 12 reps x 3 rounds? _________________ Тренировочка на пресс/кор с малышом????Повторять все упражнения 12 раз на каждую ногу и 3 подхода и следить за тем, что вы держите мышцы живота в напряжении ? Из упражнений на пресс я делаю сейчас в основном только эти упражнения, они отлично подходят тем, у кого ещё мышцы живота не до конца сошлись после родов и есть диастаз, а пресс качать уж очень хочется?Если тренировка была вам полезной ставьте + в комментариях или что хотите, мне будет приятно и я буду больше для вас таких тренировок снимать?#fitmama_diastas#fitmama_core
