Times, they are a changing. Now many husbands and male partners stay
at home and bring up the children. However, this shouldn't mean that your
exercise and keep fit plans go out of the window.
You can either exercise at home or find a gym / health club with a crèche.
If you option is limited because there are no local facilities then please
Exercising at home need not mean you have a poor workout. If you feel using
only your body weight will limited progress then why not invest in some
home weight equipment.

1. Exercise the heart and lungs - take the child for a walk, buy a bike
with a child seat or run whilst pushing the child in a buggy.
2. Tone up. While the child is a sleep aim to do a 20 - 30 mins exercise
circuit. Exercises to include are:
Narrow stance push ups (hands close together)
Aim to repeat this circuit at least twice per week. For the greatest health
benefits aim to perform the circuit 3 times a week - but no more.
