Today, I’ve partnered up with CYBEX to bring you this awesomely fun park bodyweight workout routine.
So you guys know I love to get my sweat on. It’s been a personal mission of mine since my son, Lincoln, was born to keep being active and healthy. Now that he’s 9 months old and it’s Summer, staying indoors all day is not ideal. So, I’ve had to ditch some of my basement workouts and get creative elsewhere. I definitely love to go on runs with him in his stroller, but I also still like to get in some weight lifting movements too. Nothing makes me feel stronger!
The park is the PERFECT place to combine being a fun mommy while exercising. Thanks to my new CYBEX Cloud Q carseat, I am able to bring Lincoln comfortably along to the park, get my workout in and know he won’t have a major meltdown. This carseat rocks because when its out of the car it can be adjusted to a full-recline position.
At first, I thought there was NO way my active 9 month old would go for this. At home he is crawling around fearlessly and getting into pretty much everything. He still tolerates being in the car but would much rather be rolling around. Boy was I pleasantly surprised that Lincoln LOVED the reclining feature and giggled the whole time while I got after my workout.
I also really love that CYBEX has nailed the design of this award winning safety carseat. It’s totally fashion forward (mine is the Autumn Gold color) and it has a lot of safety features that eases my mind while driving. It includes telescopic linear side-impact protection and it has an XXL canopy that mimics an armadillo and will no doubt keep the sun out of your little one’s eyes. Whether you’re in the market to swap out your existing carseat or purchase one to bring home your newborn from the hospital – I definitely recommend the CYBEX Cloud Q.
So let’s get into the workout!
You’ll be completing 3 circuits for 7 minutes each without taking a break. Take a 1 minute water break when your timer goes off and move on to circuit 2 then to circuit 3. You’ll need to find a park with a bench or a high curb to get the most out of this routine.
1A. Park Bench Step Ups Left Leg / 12 Reps
1B. Park Bench Step Ups Right Leg / 12 Reps
1C. Alternating Jumping Lunges / 30 seconds (move quickly)
2A. Park Bench Pushups / 10 Reps
2B. Walking Lunges / 30 Steps
2C. Park Bench Sprints / 30 seconds (put your hands on the bench and sprint in place for 30 seconds)
3A. Single Leg Park Bench Squats Left Leg / 10 Reps
3B. Single Leg Park Bench Squats Right Leg / 10 Reps
3C. Jumping Squats / 30 seconds (move quickly)
