Well, hello there Mama. What’s that? Your baby is teething and won’t let you put him down; how are you supposed to get any kind of workout in, EVER?
Oh Mama do I feel you, but I’ve come up with a solution:
I love wearing my son while I workout! For one, it keeps his busy body in one place (life of a 10 month old) and two, he loves the movement.

Here’s the workout:
Remember, all numbers are scalable. Please do so according to your level of fitness. You’ve got this mama! Let’s get the booty and baby to work!
15 Air Squats
20 Pulse Squats
20 Seconds On 10 Seconds Off for 5 Minutes
Side Squat Walks
10 Side Leg Raises (each side)
10 Back Leg Raises (each side)
15 Plie Bends with leg to back (each side)
Here’s The How To:
With your feet a little bit wider than two shoulder widths apart and toes angles out (due to babywearing we’re going wider than normal), squat until your booty is just below your knees. Keep your knees over your toes. Come up by pushing your hips forward and squeezing your booty at the top.
Keeping the same position as described during “Air Squats”, stay in the squatted position and pulse 2 inches up and down. Remember, keep your knees pointed out over your toes.
Side Squat Walks
Hold your baby steady with both hands. Take a wider squat stance than you had in the previous exercise. While keeping your knees bent, bring your feet together and then step out to your squat with your right foot. Repeat this until you make it to the end of the room or when you reach the end of the 20 seconds. Next, begin with your left foot leading.
Side Leg Raises
Hold on to a sturdy object in front of you. Place your feet together in a parallel position. Raise your leg to the side reach 90 degrees at the highest point, keeping your toes pointed to the wall in front of you, both knees straight, and your upper body straight. Repeat on other side.
Back Leg Raises
Hold on to a sturdy object in front of you. Raise your leg up to the back as high as possible while keeping your supporting leg turned out, as well as your shoelaces on your working foot facing the wall. Pulse your leg coming down to the same position every time. Remember to keep your chest up.
Take the same position with the leg to the back described in the last exercise. While keeping your working leg at the same height (do not let it move), Bend your supporting knee as far as you can, keeping your heel on the floor. (That is important, keep your heel in contact with the floor at all times). It is also important to keep your supporting knee turned out and bending over your toes
