RECARO Stroller Workout Series Part 2: ABS

June 5, 2016

Hi ladies! I have something really fun for you all today!

This workout is part one of a two part series that revolves around using your stroller and bonding with baby. I have been a huge fan of stroller workouts for the last few years because they are so easy and practical for a new mom to do. Also, it is a great way to soothe and bond with baby if he or she won’t nap. This is a great way to “sneak” in an effective workout without having to find the time.

The stroller that I am using is the new RECARO Performance Denali Luxury System which includes an infant carseat and stroller-all in one.

The performance system features: 

  • Adjustable Handle Bar
  • Puncture Proof Rubber All-Terrain Wheels
  • Nap Friendly Full Flat Recline
  • Quick Compact Fold with Auto Lock
  • Sturdy, Built to Last Frame

My family and I have been a huge fan of RECARO’s carseats for years and we actually own 3! Their toddler car seats are soooo amazing, not to mention we also have RECARO seats in our Nissan GTR. The company makes performance racing seats for race cars so can you imagine how durable and safe their infant and kids carseats are? I am not sure if you guys have heard or seen the testimonials from car crash stories, but there’s a reason why RECARO is one of the best car seats ever made.

Part two of the stroller workout series consists of 5 moves that are targeted for the abs and love handles. You may complete each move for a total of 15 reps and 3 sets. Let me know what you think by dropping a comment below! Oh, and don’t forget to watch the video tutorial below the workout for demonstration of the moves!

Plank Reach

Begin in an elbow plank with your feet slightly wider than your hips to create more stability.
Reach your right arm straight out, with the thumb pointed toward the ceiling. Return back to elbow plank, and reach your left arm out. This completes one rep.

Crunch & Roll

Lay on a mat on the ground with your legs extended and place your heels on the footrest of the stroller. Place your hands behind your head as if you are preparing for a crunch. As you crunch upward, pull the stroller towards your body. As you crunch downward, straighten your legs while pushing the stroller away. This is one rep.

Standing Oblique Crunches

Standing up, place one hand on the stroller and one hand behind your head. In one swift motion, crunch your side by lifting your knee up towards your elbow. Bring your knee back down. This is one rep. Switch sides.

V Ups

Laying on your back on a yoga mat, extend your arms and legs outward. In one swift motion, lift your upper back and arms off the ground while lifting your legs up in the air as if you are trying to touch your toes. Lower your body back down to starting position and repeat.

Russian Twists
