This exercise is simple and really targets the bicep muscles — the arm muscles that moms need to carry those car seats and big babies! Rather than using weights to perform your bicep curls — use your baby!
Here’s how: place one hand under your baby’s neck, and one under their bum. Curl them up to your face (feel free to kiss their belly!) and then lower them down so your forearm is parallel to the floor. As always, work to keep your abs tight as you perform sets. This is usually a strong muscle on moms — so you can do longer sets (as long as your baby is still having fun!) Shoot for sets of 30 reps and you’ll find that heavy car seat will feel much lighter to tote around.
