Watch This Mom’s Genius At-Home Workouts Using Her Baby As A Weight

It’s hard to dedicate “alone” time as a parent when life throws you unplanned sick days, tantrums and large messes that won’t clean themselves.

Finding zero moments to workout after having a baby can be difficult because it’s easy for the day to get away from you.

So for the times you can’t sneak out, FitBody Fusion coach Jessica Quillian, has some inspirational techniques to help you embrace working out with your child. From leg lifts and squats to baby glute bridges, watch how she slays at incorporating successful baby workouts into her everyday life.

Adding some extra resistance.

Mommy and baby muscle pump this morning. My little chunky 14 lb kettle bell baby, enhanced with @thexbands to add extra resistance to my side leg lifts and squats. I use the xbands a TON at the gym too! Doing this for just 5 minutes got a good burn in my shoulders, thighs, and glutes! ***Don't do this unless your baby has good head control!*** ******UPDATE: I got some negative messages sent to me regarding having Hunter in my workout. I would NEVER do anything to put my child in danger and if he didn't have legit head and neck control, I would NOT be doing this. He was drooling up a storm and loves to be lifted. PLUS the video is sped up…we are NOT moving this fast. He is 100% safe. So please keep negative comments to yourself, you have no idea how I parent my child, so mind your damn business. Thanks BYEEEEE 🖕 • • • #fitmom #fit #fitmom #fitspo #hunteradamrizor #momlife #babyboy #fitmomsofig #igfitness #fitness #npcbikini #postpartum #postbaby #bodyafterbaby #bodybuilding #workout #inspiration #motivation #babyworkout #kettlebell #fitbodyfusion #bikiniprep

This baby glute bridge.

These straddle squat jumps.

This stiff-legged deadlifts with a glute kickback.

Here's some motivation Monday for y'all. Adding my chunky monkey to a little at-home workout. Simple stiff-legged deadlifts with a glute kickback. Make sure to keep your back straight and be mindful of your little one and touching their toesies to the ground. Hunter is all about being lifted these days, so these make him very happy. Oh, and as always keep a burp rag close! 🙈…that's an IcyHot Patch on my trap — it was killing me from Hunter falling asleep in my lap at brunch yesterday! • • • #postpartum #bodyafterbaby #bodybuilding #iifymgirls #fitness #fitbodyfusion #npc #npcbikini #flex #flexibledieting #girlswholift #fitmom #igfitness #fitspo #inspiration #motivation #momlife #workout #iifym #competition #bikini #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #motivation #motivationmonday
