Most moms get out daily with their bubs in a stroller, but few realise that it can be a great workout!
Increase your stroll into a stride and you’ll get a cardio workout. There are heaps of great exercises like stroller squats or lunges for your strength workout. You can even create your own gym outdoors, using your stroller, benches and steps in your local park or on your daily walk.
This is a great stroller workout, just 11 exercises with a minute on each exercise. If you’re feeling energetic repeat for a 22 minute workout, 3 times for a 33 minute workout. You’re in control! Just remember there will never be a better time to get out and get fit!
Watch these 11 great exercises for a fast and effective 11 minute workout!
Running around stroller to warm up
1. Incline Push-ups
Don’t forget to put the break on the stroller! Incline push ups are brilliant for your core, chest and arms!
2. Incline Plank
A full body burner!! Keep your arms at a 90 degree angle, activate your core and don’t let your butt drop down! Beginners, skip the incline part!
3. Tricep Dips
These are awesome for strengthening and tightening the back of your arms! Keep your head facing forward, don’t look down.

5. Star Jumps/Jumping Jacks
