This run and squat workout can be done anywhere! If you’re stuck at a hotel with only a treadmill, no problem! If you don’t have a gym membership, no biggie! Even if running’s not your thing, this is a great workout to get your heart rate up and changing.
This past week we did the big gender reveal with our families. We had the doc put the labeled ultrasound in an envelope, had a friend get a balloon filled with confetti, and the boys popped the balloon. While I would LOVE to have said I was as thrilled as my husband was at the idea of three boys, my initial reaction was actually…
BUT after sleeping on it, I woke up feeling incredibly grateful for the blessing of three boys! Yes, our lives our crazy, messy, and we’ve got enough weapons to start a militia, but we wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Now let’s get after it with this week’s Stay Fit Mom Weekly Workout. While my diet’s been a tad out of control these last few months, I have been able to keep up my workouts and I’m SO grateful for that. Pregnant or not, this will get you sweating!

- Keep track of your time using a watch or a Timer. (We frequently use the MYWOD app and recommend it to our readers. You can keep track of your workouts, they’ve got How To videos, and of course the app has great timers.) Set your timer to go off every minute, so you know when to complete your squats.
- Be sure to modify this at home workout to your ability level. If you want a challenge, you can always try 2 miles! If you’re not giving yourself enough time between squats to run with the 10 squats suggested, you can always switch to 5 squats.
Before you begin the workout map out your 1 mile run. You can always do this on a treadmill or a loop around your home. You’ll begin the workout with running. When your timer goes off for minute 1, complete 10 air squats. After completing the squats continue your run. When the timer goes off for minute 2 complete 10 air squats. Run again. Continue this process until you have completed one full mile of running.
