10 Minute Stroller HIIT Workout
Ready to add some intensity to your walk around the block with the baby? This 10-minute HIIT workout can give you as good of a workout as going for a long run. The key is to keep your heart rate up during the periods that you are moving. Ideally, your heart rate hits around 75-85% of your maximum heart rate during these exercises. You can measure your heart rate by counting the pulse on your neck for 10 seconds and multiplying by 6. I usually do this during the rest periods. Here is a simple heart rate calculator that will help you find your target heart rate.
HIIT isn’t going to be for every mama, I would recommend HIIT workouts for mamas who are feeling stronger and are ready to add some intensity into their regimen. This might be around 3-4 months postpartum, but it’s really going to be different for everyone. As always, it is super important that you check in with your doctor before starting any exercise program because each mama has a different body and postpartum healing process. And also that you do a full body active warm up before diving into your HIIT workout.
