Mother’s Day Inspired Workout: Post-Baby!

I had to borrow a baby for this one…it wasn’t too hard though. When my sister and little niece came to Chicago for a visit last February, we had a little fun with my sis showing me how she uses Baby Blake to squeeze in some training at home! Here is your Busy New Mama Workout!
