Playing With Your Toddler Is an Exercise in Itself
Toddlers have an abundance of energy, and it’s all about exploration with them. So, instead of wondering how to keep them away from your sports equipment, you can make your workout revolve around playing with your toddler. You can run together, include them in your yoga poses, or make them imitate your movements and stretches. It will be good both for you and them.
Kids Can Be the Perfect Weights
You can do squats, push-ups, planks, and weighted lunges with your kid or toddler as an innovative dumbbell. The added bonus is that they may have a lot of fun in the process, and you won’t have to look for ways to entertain them. Plus, as time goes by, their weight will increase, thus adding more progression to your workout.
Let Them Join the Workout
Kids and toddlers are natural imitators. It is likely that when they see you jumping, doing squats or push-ups, they will want to follow along. Even if it takes longer for you to complete your workout routine, it will be a fun experience both for you and your toddler.
If They Can’t Join, Distract Them
When all other efforts fail, you can always try and distract them so you can fit in a workout. You can play them their favorite cartoon or let them run around with their beloved toy. Their attention spans can be surprisingly high when they’re doing something they love. That way, you can do something you love and get your workout done.
