Happy Tuesday!  We’re having a rainy day over here in WNC – supposed to get nearly 3 inches!  We desperately need it because the pollen is outta control – it’s making my family pretty miserable right now. 

Today I’m bringing you my friend, Tara!  She blogs over at Treble in the Kitchen and she’s got a naptime workout for you. 

Will I workout at naptime today??  Probably not –  napping on a rainy day seems like a good choice. 

 But YOU totally should! :)

Hello Lindsay’s List fans and friends! I’m here with you today while Lindsay spends some precious time with her family that has recently increased in size.  I am so happy for her!

I’m Tara, the blogger behind the health and fitness blog Treble in the Kitchen. Basically, I am a health-nut who loves to experiment in the kitchen with healthy (and sometimes no so healthy!) foods. Currently, I work full-time on the management team of a local fitness center in downtown Indianapolis where I also teach group fitness and volunteer as a running group leader. Needless to say, I spend a lot of time in the gym and a lot of timing creating my own workouts and prepping for my classes.

When Lindsay mentioned sharing a “naptime” workout, I knew that was something I wanted to share with all of you today.

I created this circuit workout full of bodyweight exercises.

I love bodyweight workouts because they can really be tailored to the individual completing the workout and they can be done virtually anywhere because the only equipment you need is yourself—for example, this would be a great workout to do at home while the baby is napping! Moving your own bodyweight is a great way to increase core and overall body strength while gaining flexibility and general awareness of what your body can do.

When women come back to fitness after having a baby, it is also important to ease back into things and not get too carried away at the start. This circuit can be completed 1 or 2 times through at a slower pace for a slightly easier workout, or it can be completed at a faster pace 3 or 4 times through for something more intense. It just depends on where you are at with your fitness level.

This is a great workout to use while your child is napping, if you are on vacation, or just need a great workout with no equipment…no matter where you may be!

QUESTION:  What is your favorite way to get the body moving?
