Exercise 5: Seated Arm Raises
Just in case you thought we’d forgotten about all you moms out there, today’s exercise is for you! This exercise is ideal for new moms who have little time to get to the gym or don’t have access to one. And it’s fun for baby and mom!
Start by sitting in a chair or on the couch, making sure you’re elongating your back and keeping your tummy tight. Pick up your baby and with your arms tucked into your sides, raise your baby and bring her or him back down so their little toes just touch the floor.
This is a great exercise because it works your shoulders as well as your core. Try 3 sets of 5-10 reps, with a couple of minutes in between.
