I don’t know about you, but for me, working out inside a gym can often get boring and monotonous. To keep things fresh and exciting, I have always added quite a bit of variety to my workouts. Whether it be heading out to the track or to a hot yoga class, I believe that change and variety are what keep your body and mind “in the game.”

Track workouts have always been a huge component to my weekly workout routine, but now even more so! As a new mom, I am finding myself heading to the track a lot more often. It is perfect because I can bring my son and we both can enjoy being outside and taking in the fresh air, while I get in a killer full-body workout! With a lot less time to spend on my workouts, the track offers me everything I need to get in both resistance and cardio in 45 minutes max. Check out my Take It To The Track Workout and get yourself (any your baby) out to the track!

Band Biceps Curl. Begin standing on the band with both feet and grasping a handle in each hand. Keeping the upper arm and elbows stationary, curl the handles toward your chest. Slowly lower back to the starting position. To increase the challenge, widen your stance.

Jump Squats. Start with legs together. Jump out to a wide low squat. Then, jump back to the starting position.

Side Lateral Raise with Band. Stand on band with feet shoulder-width apart and arms at your sides, holding the exercise band in each hand. Keeping a slight bend in the elbows, lift arms out to the side, bringing them to shoulder height. Lower arms back down to your sides.

Triceps Dips. Sitting on the bleacher, grab onto its edge with your hands approximately shoulder width. Extend your feet out in front of you. Lower your body down by bending your elbows; stop when your upper arms are about parallel to the floor. Then, push back up and tighten your triceps
