Workout Wednesday: Curtsy Squats with Your Baby
If you want to slim and tone your thighs, this exercise is perfect for you! Traditional squats help to tone the glutes and quads, but this alternative really helps to target the inner and outer thigh, helping you to see faster results in the areas you want. By adding the additional weight of your baby, you increase the intensity of the exercise, for faster gains in strength.
To perform, wear your baby forward facing in the carrier of your choice. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart. Slowly bend your left knee as your cross your right leg behind you. Your right knee should lower to the floor, but don’t allow it to actually touch the floor. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat. You can place your hands on your hips or out to the sides for balance if you need it. Make sure as you perform the squat you are sinking down into your left heel and not allowing your left knee to pass over your toe line.
Perform 3 sets of 10-15 squats on each side.
