As a busy working mom, I’m often asked how I find time to exercise. Like all moms, I am desperate to find a sliver of time that I can dedicate to getting my 80’s waistline back! After taking my first spin with my newly licensed teenage daughter, I realized my muscles were actually sore after a few short miles and a few near misses.
Just drive around town with your teen 3 times per week for 10 minutes and you’ll get the effortless, time-saving workout you’ve been dreaming about.
Welcome to “Car”dio…an unconscious deep tissue workout for teen moms.
Bicep tricep handle squeeze: While your teen is getting to know the boundaries of the car to curb ratio, ,grip the passenger handles tightly then release and enjoy a deep bicep/tricep burn. Repeat as often as you sense the curb scraping your passenger side tires.
Glutes squeeze: As your teen drives continuously within inches of the car in front of you, grip you butt muscles so tightly that you raise up from the seat two inches. Hold until a divine intervention makes your teen slow down long enough to get some distance between your front bumper and their back bumper. Continue this effective Glute squeeze until your teen finally brings the car to a complete stop in the comfort of your own driveway.
Mandible clinch: Enjoy a nonsurgical facelift by the tightening the muscles around your jaw bone as you try to keep your mouth shut as your nervous teen demonstrates their newly tested driver’s ed skills… clinch and release, clinch and release, clinch and release.
Calf brake press: Calf raises can be done effectively in the passenger side of the floorboard as you press like hell to try to slow down the car!! Repeat as necessary
Console Tricep dip: Grip the console and passenger handle and press down into a tricep dip each time your teen doesn’t anticipate the yellow turning to RED!
Unlike traditional exercises, all “car”dio exercises are done while holding your breath! You do not have to check with a doctor before doing this workout; God made us this way…consider it a gift. Cheers to teen moms!
