This is a question for me and my clients! How do you replace a 45-minute run (oops, sorry, all of you shouting “specificity!” right now. What do you substitute for a 45-min run?)
Climb stairs, check. Many mamas cannot do higher impact movements due to pelvic floor issues.
Do good cardio workout videos exist?
All right, thank you everyone. Mamas in my circle are motivated once again!!
Special thanks to the few of you who answered with a solely cardiovascular exercise suggestion (dance!), and bonus points to you who provided specific web pages and workout dvds!
Thanks to all the rest of you who so helpfully explained the cardiovascular effect of getting my heart rate up through resistance training, kettlebells, circuit training, and “cardio strength training.” We really appreciate the time and thought that went into your answers.
Keep ’em coming!
