Bicep Workout for New Moms

Everybody needs to stay fit and healthy to be able to get through our busy daily schedules. We all know that eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, and performing daily exercises will help us boost our immune system. This is especially important for new moms. 

If you’re a new mom, one of the regular exercises that you can do is to learn how to stretch your biceps. This is a beneficial workout, and it’s something that you can do without any equipment. Here’s what you can do to tone your arms:


Before you start your bicep workout, you need to prepare your body by doing some simple warm-ups. You may walk around your living room for a couple of minutes for a light cardio workout. To increase your heart rate, you may do some jumping jacks for about 30 seconds, or you can do high knees also. 

Make some simple stretches as well to prepare your whole body for the biceps workout. It is important to do stretches to help increase your flexibility and range of motion, which will help you move with greater ease. Doing some stretching also helps relieve muscle tension and tightness that prevents injury and increases your performance.

Raise Your Baby High

You need to do a proper stance first to establish a good balance and prevent any accidents. Start by standing with feet hip-width apart and slightly bend your knees. Carry your baby by holding them below their armpits, near your chest. Lift your baby slowly above your head, try to keep the position for a few seconds, then lower your baby down back to the starting position. Repeat the process and do 12 to 15 repetitions.

Knee Push-ups With a Kiss

To get you motivated, rest your baby on his back on a clean mat or carpet. Position yourself into a raised and modified push-up position. Have your knees on the floor. Your hands should be slightly more than shoulder-width apart. With elbows bent out to the sides, lower your chest down to the floor. Upon reaching the bottom of the descent, kiss your baby, then push your body back up to the starting position and repeat. You may do 12 to 15 repetitions or do the set on your toes instead of your knees if you can.

Swing Your Baby

Your baby will love this workout. Position yourself by standing while holding your baby facing away from you. Carry your baby with one hand under his tush and place your other hand across his chest. Start swaying him slowly to the right, then bend your elbows at an almost 90-degree angle at the apex of the swing. Swing your baby again towards the left while curling your arms when you reach the apex. This move will help you bend your biceps and continue swinging ten on each side for a total of 20 repetitions. 

Triceps Dips With Baby

Start this workout in a sitting position with knees bent and feet flat. Carefully rest your baby on your upper thighs and make sure you get his attention so that he will face you. Both your hands should be behind you on the floor with fingers facing your back. Lift your body by straightening your arms and lift butt at the same time. Straighten your elbows, then bend them back again. Repeat the process for about 20 reps.

Before doing any strenuous workouts, it would be best to consult your doctor first before doing these activities to prevent any health issues. Ensure that you and your baby are not alone when doing this workout in case of an emergency. Have fun with this activity with your baby.
