Baby Squat Shoulder Press
You won’t need a lot of repetitions to benefit from Baby Squat Shoulder Presses. You’ll feel the burn almost immediately as you combine resistance training with strength training during this micro-workout. Baby gets a free ride up and down the elevator while you work on those shoulders, legs and your back. One word of caution though; If your baby is heavy, she might want to sit this one out. You could become injured by attempting this with too much weight.
Begin this exercise with your baby facing you, at eye-level. With a slight bend in both elbows, extend your arms outward to a comfortable distance. Stand tall and turn your toes out as you prepare to perform a squat. Inhale and lower your body down like you’re about to sit in a chair. Gaze into your child’s eyes as you keep your back straight, concentrating your weight over your heels. Exhale and return to the standing position. Modify this exercise for greater difficulty by lifting your baby up over your head as you rise to the standing position at the end of the repetition. Don’t jerk and bounce her. Take your time and let her enjoy the ride.
