Chest Press with Baby

This exercise focuses on the development and strengthening of the pectoralis major muscle as well as other supporting muscles including the anterior deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis, scapulae fixers, trapezii, and the triceps. Many women are inherently weak in the upper body. This exercise is a wonderful to develop your strength while having fun interacting with your baby.

Step 1:  Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor, legs bent at a 45 degree angle and hands supporting baby under their under arms. (Baby must be able to support their own head to do this exercise)

Step 2:  Ensure your glutes, shoulders and head are flat on the mat with a slight (neutral) bend in the spine.

Step 3: Exhale as you lift and press baby towards the ceiling fully extending your arms. Keep abdominals contracted to support your lower back

Step 4: Inhale as you lower baby to start position in a slow controlled manner. Complete 8-12 repetitions.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
