Ali Landry’s Post-Baby Workout
You’ll need: Pilates Magic Circle, Bosu ball, a pair of dumbbells
Warm up on the treadmill for five minutes, then stretch on a mat to prevent injury.
1. Pilates Magic Circle
Lie on your back with legs straight and magic circle in your hands. With arms straight, start pressing the circle with short and quick bursts as you reach for your toes for an abdominal roll-up. Continue pressing as you slowly move your body back down to the mat in starting position.
Complete 20-25 reps.
Do a plank, holding one leg off the floor for 15 seconds each leg, for a total of 30 seconds.
3. Bicep Curls
Using 5 to 7 lb. dumbbells, sit on a Bosu ball with feet off the ground to activate your core while doing bicep curls. You can also complete a variation to this by moving one foot off the ground at a time while alternating curls.
Complete 15-25 reps.
4. Bosu Ball Knee Taps with Raises
Stand on top of the Bosu and get into a squat position. Do knee taps by moving your legs side to side, and at the same time do lateral and front shoulder raises using 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells.
Complete 20-30 reps.
5. Cardio Burst
Now you’re ready for a three-minute cardio burst of running on the treadmill at 6.8 speed. Then increase to 7.5 and sprint to the finish!
That’s one set. With this workout, do three to five intervals in your session that all have different exercise moves with only one set to keep the hour interesting.
“Just don’t put pressure on yourself,” Landry says. “Your biggest priority is your baby but don’t forget about yourself, too. Be creative, start small, give yourself a break and enjoy the process!”
