There are many exercise routines that mums can follow, however for a working mom, the choices are limited since they have to consider the efficiency of the routine given the short amount of time being spent. Working mums cannot afford to spend an hour a day for a complete exercise routine. They have to choose what’s time-efficient and what’s easy to do that can provide the best results. Here are some great routines that working mums can choose from without going to the gym and without the need to buy expensive equipment to use.
Squats are very easy to perform. Just imagine that you are about to sit in your chair. Then do it without the chair. For a more accurate squat, the first thing you need to do is to stand with your feet about half a meter apart. Place your hands as if you are trying to pull something towards you. Slowly bend your knees while maintaining the position of your hands and back. Continue bending your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold on to that position for a few seconds, and then slowly stand up. Repeat these steps several times according to your preference and stamina.
Push-up is a very common exercise for those who want to maintain the good shape of their body. Although many of us find it so tiring and difficult, you should consider the benefits it has to offer before you drop it out of your list. Daily push-ups help strengthen the muscles in your arms, chest, abs and back. It is a well-rounded exercise that greatly helps promote healthier and leaner body.
Triceps dips help develop the muscles in your triceps which is hard to develop for women. To perform a triceps dip is very easy. The first thing you do is sit on the floor and place your hands shoulder-width apart behind your hips. After that, bend your knees while keeping your feet on the ground. Slowly lift your hips off the floor. This is your starting position. Then slowly lower your body by bending your elbows again and don’t let your hips touch the floor this time. Extend again your elbows and lift your body to return to the starting position. Do this several times a day according to your preference. You can also do this using a stable chair. Instead of placing your hands on the floor, place it on the edge of the chair and follow the same procedure.
