Stroller Lunge

Body Bonus: Firms up your butt and thighs. Stand about two feet away from stroller. Extend arms in front, hands resting on handlebar. Spread legs in a split stance as far apart as you can comfortably, right leg in front of the left. Distribute most of your body weight between front heel and back toe (with back heel raised). Stand tall and tighten your torso.

Inhale, and lower hips by bending both knees. Stop when front thigh is parallel to the ground. Pause, exhale, and squeeze glutes and thighs to return to straight- leg, starting position. Repeat, then switch legs. Make sure overall lunging motion glides up and down, rather than forward and back, to avoid stressing front knee.

Mommy Move: If he needs soothing sing "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe."
