My Life On The Run: Fun Stroller Workout

I’ve been loving the jogging stroller lately but I know if I want to look like I did pre-baby, I need to add in some strength training. Just doing cardio will never get you the toned results most women (and men) are looking for.

I’ve always enjoyed kicking my own butt using just body weight where ever and whenever. It’s fun to run or walk with Tommy to the Esplanade, and then do some planks or lunges on the grass to try and build back up what I lost. I love classes with childcare in the city but with nap schedules developing, I’m not able to make them as much as I was early on.

I’m always on the go and it’s nice to know I have a few workouts in my arsenal that I can do with Tommy whenever we have time. Even if I’m running errands right before or after my workout, I love how athleisure is on trend and there to help tired moms look good and ambitious. My goal each day is to dress the part of “fit mom” and hopefully fit in a workout.

Saucony Pink Top

I’m wearing items from The Life On The Run collection by Saucony in the workout below. They help add a little swagger to my sweat and are perfect to wear from gym to street. Check out the entire collection here.

Fun Body Weight Stroller Workout

Warm up with 10 minute walk or run. You do not need a jogging stroller if you plan to walk.

Perform each move for a total of 10 reps. Move on to the next move as quickly as you can with good form and stroller safety. Perform as many rounds of the 4 moves as you can in 8 minutes. Take a 1-2 minute break and repeat for another 8 minute round.

Cool down with another 5-10 minute walk or run for a 30-40 minute intermediate bodyweight workout.

Move #1. Jump Squat

Move #2. Single Leg Deadlift

Move #3. Pushup

Move #4. Side Plank Hip Lifts

If you are unsure how to do these moves, check out the following video below for a demo:

The high waisted pants helped boost my confidence to go sports bra only in some of the images above. They really did help a momma feel good about her core! I was also surprised at how supportive the sports bra was and cool the pink top felt in the summer heat.

My favorite part about the outfit featured in this video is my footwear. I was always a Saucony Jazz girl in college and I love the color combo featured in The Life On The Run by Saucony collection. They are my only athletic shoes that are street chic. They help me look good chasing after my 6 month old who already can’t sit still!

    I would like to fit in more strength training. I love the idea of incorporating it into my run with my little guy when he’s in the jogging stroller. Thank you for the great tips!

    My fitness goal is to build some muscle in my upper body! It is significantly weaker than my lower body. I am focusing on hitting upper body 3x a week now, doing both weight training and body weight exercises like push ups. Thanks for the workout above!!! 🙂

    Great post! Hard to find time to squeeze in a workout with a new baby. Love this idea especially since our guy absolutely loves being in his stroller! My current goal post baby is to get back in pre baby shape- both strength and cardio!

    I was on modified bed rest for the last two months of my pregnancy, which was tough for someone who loves being active. My goal is to gradually build up my strength to pre-baby levels. Just passed the 6 week mark, so it’s go-time!! Thanks for this stroller workout! 🙂

    I am due in November and am trying my best to stay active as long as possible. Right now 2 mile daily walks along with barre workouts are my savior. I am looking forward to getting back to running after baby. Thanks!

    I love running and strength training so my goal is to get better at something I struggle at: make it thru a barre class without modifications or short rests.

    My goal for the summer is just to keep working out consistently -- and not letting the crazy weekend schedules, last minute plans, or hot weather derail me!

    My goal for the summer is to build my speed back up for a fall race- I hit a wall with running, so I took a break to regain my passion for the activity-

      I hate saying it but “listen to your body” -- I felt OK at 23 weeks, check my pregnancy. I think that was when my bladder couldn’t go longer than 5-10 minutes

    My current fitness goal is running a half marathon in under 2 hours this fall! Unfortunately, I’m currently dealing with an injury so I may need to reevaluate, but I hope to be fully recovered in time to begin training 🙂

    Currently just trying to keep moving (24 weeks pregnant now) which means lots of walks and yoga still. Once I have the baby, it’s back to spin, yoga, and strength training!

    I was a distance runner and due to hip issues have had to find new fitness goals. I have begun a journey into martial arts where I am one of 3 girls in the self defense program -- it has required a whole new kind of strength (especially mentally)! Trying to do grappling drills with men that are 100 lbs bigger than I am has led to a lot of personal growth. The confidence I gain from each class keeps me coming back day after day.

    I have a 4 month old and I’m running before he and my 3 yr old wake up in the mornings. It means getting up at 5am sometimes, but always worth it!

    After reaching my major running goals this spring (in Saucony shoes!) my current fitness goal is to try more classes like yoga/barre/TRX to switch things up and get out of my comfort zone!

    My current fitness goal is to get back into some longer-ish races! I did the DC cherry blossom race in April. Thinking about a 1/2 marathon in September that is a trail run. The DC race is my longest distance so trying to keep inching for progress!

    Being postpartum a little over 2 months now, my goal is to take it one day at a time with losing this mommy/baby weight. I try to fit in some form of exercise on a daily basis but I also try not to stress out about it if I don’t.
