Are you a busy mom? Even if you’ve never been a mom, you know a mom… and we all know how busy moms can be. Between running the home and family, running the kids everywhere, feeding everyone and, for many moms, working a job outside of the home, moms may be the busiest people around. With as crazy as a mom’s daily life is I’ve never met a mom that didn’t want to get in better shape. And the truth of the matter is that the healthier you are (on the inside and outside), the more energy you have for everything else in your life.
Best Workouts For A Time-Crunched Mom
One of the best workout programs available for busy moms is the 10 Minute Trainer workout. It’s an excellent choice for busy moms because with the 10 Minute Trainer you can get your workout in, showered and dressed for the day all in under half an hour. 10 Minute Trainer was developed by Tony Horton (he also created P90X), so you know you’ll get results.
How Can I Get Results In Just 10 Minutes?
Ten minutes is nothing right? So how is it possible to get great results in only a ten minute workout? In the 10 Minute Trainer workout, Tony uses a method called “Super Stacking” that means that every movement you do combines cardio and strength training of a particular section at the same time so that you get the most efficient workout possible in the shortest amount of time. Have more than 10 minutes? You can also stack several 10 Minute Trainer workouts to make your workout even more effective. But any way that you look at it, if you’re a busy mom, a workout that shows results with only ten minutes of workout time is like a gift from the heavens.
Other Workouts For Busy Moms
I also think that Shaun T’s Hip Hop Abs and Chalene Johnson’s Turbo Jam are great workout choices for busy moms. And just because you won’t be using any weights in these programs doesn’t mean that you won’t be doing full body fat burning cardio through many of the workouts. Most of the workouts are only half an hour long and, most importantly, they’re incredibly fun workouts. If you’re a mom, chances are your day involves a lot of stress, and some “fun time” is just what you deserve.
Don’t Forget To Eat
One of the biggest challenges as a busy mom is getting enough calories throughout the day. From running errands to running the family, time can just seem to slip away and there may be days when you completely forget to eat! Don’t let this happen. While you may be thinking that eating less is good, it’s actually terrible for your body. Beachbody’s meal replacement shake, Shakeology, has been great for helping me get in a quick meal on the go without a ton of preparation. Water, ice, scoop of Shakeology, a little peanut butter blended in my single serve blender and I’m good to go. If you’re looking for a great meal replacement then I would highly recommend you checking it out!
Finding time to workout can be hard for anybody, but it’s even harder if you’re a mom with a million other people’s schedules to worry about all while being the CEO of the household on top of that. I recommend giving one of the above workouts a shot. You may find yourself demanding that your family leave you alone for workout time!
