A stroller walk, or a run is an excellent workout for moms — and important to execute with good form. Poor stroller form can lead to more aches and pains and cause you to fatigue more quickly. At Active Moms’ Club I coach moms to stand tall and walk like they have a mini-skirt on. Why? Because walking with a pretend mini-skirt on will shorten leg stride, keeping mom’s hips under her body AND engage butt and abdominal muscles. Yep, you’ll be working your core while you walk. Make it a brisk walk and you have an easy way to get fit with your baby!
5 Tips for Good Stroller Form
- Your head should be over your shoulders, and looking forward rather than down.
- Lead with your chest by engaging shoulder blades, gentle pull them back and down
- Stand tall, your hips should be underneath your body
- Engage your abdominals
- Keep your wrists in neutral position
