1. Hip Thrust is a good way to strengthen your lower body. In this video I am using edge of the chaise sofa for supporting my upper body and for resistance I am using my 13 kgs toddler who loves these workouts. This lets me spend time with him and complete a simple strengthening activity on a busy day.
2. My toddler loves the modified push-up. I sing, kiss and play with him on the mat which lets me exercise my upper body and yet play with him.
3. Bridge is a simple strengthening exercise for lower body. It increases stability in back, legs and bottom area.
