Exercise of the Week: Plie Squats with Baby Carrier

Starting Position
Stand with feet wider than shoulders, knees slightly bent, toes turned outward. Make sure your knees and toes are pointing in the same direction. Engage your abs and keep your torso tall.

Action
INHALE: Squat straight down until thighs are nearly parallel to the floor. Make sure your knees are not reaching past your toes. EXHALE: Squeeze glutes as you straighten legs to starting position to complete one rep. Aim for 1-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions.

Special Instructions
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.
