A Quickie Treadmill-Rowing Workout

We are all for mixing things up at the gym—particularly when time is short. So we suggest hopping from the treadmill to the rowing machine and throwing a few power moves in between, which will result in a solid workout that keeps your whole body guessing.

Tips: No-impact rowing is perfect for pregnancy and for new moms looking to kick-start a return to workouts. Alter the pace on the treadmill and on the rowing machine depending on how you feel. Keep moving throughout the entire session, moving smoothly from step to step and focusing on good form throughout.

The Workout:

Warm-up: 1 mile, easy

Run: 15 minutes at a quick but sustainable pace.

Transition: 20 jump squats (If jumping is uncomfortable, switch to air squats or squats with dumb bells.)

Row: 15 minutes at a split time of approximately 2:30

Transition: 20 kettlebell swings

Finish: 30-second side plank with 10 hip lifts (on each side)

Have more time? Repeat the entire sequence.

As always, check with your health care professional before starting a new workout.
