This exercise uses a front pack carrier. Stand tall with your abs engaged to support your body. Step your right leg forward and left leg back so that you have a wide distance between your feet.
INHALE: Lower straight down towards the floor by bending both knees. Your front knee should bend about 90 degrees and stay aligned with the ankle below it. Your back knee should lower straight down towards the floor. EXHALE: Push straight back up to the starting position to complete one rep. Aim for 1-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions on each side.
Safety should be your main concern, for you and the baby. Make sure that baby is totally secure in all movements. If any exercise is uncomfortable or too strenuous with baby, try it without baby first. You can hold onto a wall or sturdy chair for additional balance, if necessary. Do NOT lean forward while lunging?your movements should be straight up and down. If you have trouble staying upright or keeping your forward knee from crossing your toes, make the stance between both of your feet wider to accommodate the length of your legs.
