It is hardly possible to find someone more interested in home training programs than a young mother. Unlike other people, she does not have much choice of where to train. Experiencing the lack of time constantly, all she can do is choose home training.
A mom, as a rule, is rigidly attached to their child and their house. It would be very unfair to ignore the desperate desire of young mothers who simply cannot wait to work on making their elastic muscles and slender body return.
Despite all this stuff, training should not be boring and monotonous. Women who sit at home with children already have enough routine in their lives. Simplifying the training program too much is useless as it destroys its main meaning. Today we are going to show you a simple 10-minute workout which can help you to get in shape and won't take too much time. Scroll down to learn more.
#1. Shadow Boxing
- Stand tall with a tight core. Keep your gaze straight ahead. Bring your hands up to shoulder level. Make a tight fist with the thumb on the outside of your hand. Do not wrap your fingers around your thumb.
- Begin in a left lead stance. Your left foot should be in front. Your right foot should be behind. Throw a left lead jab by extending your left hand straight out in front of you and immediately retracting.
- Follow up the left jab with a right cross. Twist your foot and drive your right hip forward as you throw a straight punch with your back right hand. Alternate these two punches. Switch sides when finished with the prescribed repetitions.
