My Favorite YouTube Workouts for Busy Moms
After I had a baby, the days of going working out on my own schedule were immediately gone. Some days just getting to the gym feels daunting enough, and making a spin class on time can be an Olympic feat.
Still, I wanted to get a good workout in. Even with my personal training background, there were (and are) a lot of days I don’t want to plan my own workout, I simply want to follow along.
YouTube has been the perfect answer! I regularly turn to YouTube when I can’t get outside or make it to the gym. Here are some killer workout videos to get you started and in shape with no equipment!
Cardio & Strength Combo
I definitely recommend making different playlists so you aren’t wasting precious time searching for the workout you want. Do what makes sense for you; Cardio, Strength, 20 minutes and less, 30 minutes and longer, yoga, etc. Here’s how to do that:
Find the video you want to save, and hit the plus sign/SAVE option.
Here, you will be given the option to save to a current playlist, or create a new one. Select “Create New Playlist” and enter your category (i.e. Cardio), and select “Create”.
Ideally, you’ll be able to get in the whole workout during a nap or playtime, but if you can’t, you can pause it and come back to it later in the day. Remember, breaking a workout up throughout the day still counts, and any amount of time is better than zero time!
