Stroller workouts are seriously what keep me sane as a mom of three. I can’t always get away from my kids for a run, or a workout, but I can put them in the stroller and GO! That is why I created this workout, to show you that you can get a lot done in a little bit of time, thanks to some running and strength mixed together. The way I do my stroller workouts is to run for two minutes, do my strength reps, run for two minutes, do some strength and run for two minutes. 6 minutes of running is ONE SET for most of my stroller workouts. Sometimes 4 minutes of running is one set. I do each set 3 times through, so I usually get at least 20 minutes of workout in. This workout in particular has 3 runs for 2 minutes, and 3 strength portions.…
