Ah, ways for young moms to workout - seems impossible, but it doesn't have to be.

All of us young mothers know that with children comes lots of housework and no time for ourselves, so why not make that dreadful, time consuming housework into a daily workout.

Here are some ways for young moms to workout...

1. Laundry

Kids and babies produce a lot of dirty laundry.2

Sometimes I think that it is easier to just buy new clothes and linens than to wash, dry, fold, and put away, so lets make it worth it.

Separate laundry into piles on the floor (kids can be helpful at this chore and it may turn into a learning experience) and instead of bending down as you normally would, turn it into a squat.

Start slow and do a few before you pick up the pile then as you begin to get used to that, take it up a notch and do the squats with the laundry basket in you hand.

Maximize your housework...

this is such a sneaky one of the ways for young moms to work out!

2. Picking up Toys

Everyday I ask myself, how is it that this small body can produce such a big mess?2

Look on the bright side: more work for mommy means another chance to do some exercise!

While picking up toys from the floor you can continue squats or move on to front or side lunges.

3. Dishes

Piles of bottles, sippy cups, and other dirty dishes?2

Oh, yes!

I know that all too well!

While hand washing and sanitizing, work out your calves.

You can do this by standing comfortably as you normally would and move up and down on and off your tippy toes.

4. Vacuuming

While vacuuming, sweeping or mopping, put on some music and make it a cardio routine, start dancing, use the broom as your mic.

Not only will you be working out and having a blast, but your kids, whether they be a toddler or an infant, will be totally entertained at you making a fool out of yourself.
