Easy Exercises for Moms
Works the bicep muscles and shoulders
Stand up straight, with your legs hip-width apart.
Contract your abdominal muscles to engage your core and hold your baby (or the medicine ball) slightly out in front of your chest, with your elbows bent at a 45-degree angle (and close to the sides of your body).
Bring your baby (or the ball) in to your chest, then lower her down so she's at your thighs. Hold her there for 3 seconds.
Bring your baby up again to your chest, and hold that position for 3 seconds.
Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 15 repetitions. If you need a break, give your baby a hug.
