How to Incorporate a Bosu Ball in a Mom and Toddler Workout

I have been on a mission to find as many ways to workout as possible with my toddler. It’s just the easiest way for me to ensure I get a workout in with my busy schedule. This month I am sharing how to incorporate a bosu ball in a mom and toddler workout. In this case, Dan was home so we actually did a whole family workout with the Bosu.

If you aren’t familiar with a Bosu ball, it’s basically a half inflatable workout ball with a flat plastic/rubber bottom.  It’s one of my favorite exercise devices because it is versatile and fun. It helps with everything from strength training to ab work to balance.  The little guy loves it because he can bounce 😆

Please be advised that I am not a personal trainer, and the intention of this post is not to teach you how to do the exercises. If you don’t have basic knowledge of these exercises, you should visit a professional before starting. Additionally, if you are entering a newly active lifestyle, you should consult a physician before starting a new workout routine.

This workout is perfect for leg day. It targets the legs and abs. For the lunge portion, I used Aiden as a weight so that I got some arm work in. Depending on his mood, sometimes he will actually do the workout and sometimes he just wants to watch or run around. Either way, I love exposing him to a healthy lifestyle.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
