Mini bands are one of my favourite tools to have on hand.
Not only are they great for new moms to regain some strength, they’re also awesome months or even years postpartum to keep your workout routine fresh and add some extra challenge into your usual moves.
You can add them to squats, bridges, hip thrusts, pushups, planks, mountain climbers, rows…
There are so many different ways that you can use them. And they’re tiny so it’s easy to take them with you if you’re travelling and want to get some movement in, or you’re at work and you need a quick energy-boosting break.
If you don’t have a set of bands, these are the ones I use (and love). I also give them to my clients and so far haven’t had any complaints about them breaking or wearing down.
Grab your mini bands and give this 14 minute circuit a try.
These are basic moves that any mom can do. Just check in with your physiotherapist, doctor or midwife to make sure these are okay for your body.
I included 3 rounds of 3 different movements but you can do just 1-2 rounds, add another round or two, or even use this as a warm-up for a heavier weight training session.
Options galore! 🙂
