Stroller Summer Shape-Up {Week 3} + Tre Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Chicco.

Hi, guys!

Here is the last set of workouts for the Stroller Summer Shape-Up. I really can’t believe this is the third and final week already. Time flies when you’re having fun!

If you missed the first two posts in this series, you can find them here: Stroller Summer Shape-Up {Week 1} and Stroller Summer Shape-Up {Week 2}.

WORKOUT 1

This workout was a really fun one! In just 20 minutes, you’ll get a full-body workout and likely be a sweaty mess by the end like I was. (Holy cow, I’m gross.) You’ll definitely work hard, but it’ll be over and done with before you know it!

Ok, here’s how this one works”¦ EMOM stands for “every minute on the minute,” which means you’ll switch between the two exercises listed above on the minute for 10 minutes total. So, for the first EMOM, you’ll run with your stroller for 1 minute (o:00 – 1:00) and then do as many Squats Thrusts as possible for the next minute (1:00 – 2:00).

FYI: A Squat Thrust is basically a Burpee without touching your chest to the ground.

Then, you’ll alternate a minute of running with Squat Thrusts for another 8 minutes (10 minutes total). You can also think of it as running on the EVEN minutes and doing Squat Thrusts on the ODD minutes. You’ll stick to this same interval scheme for the running and Side Skater Jumps EMOM too.

Feel free to add in a foot shake/grab during the Side Skater Jumps. Quinn thought it was hilarious!

WORKOUT 2

This was another fun one””and it’s a serious workout for your core! You may curse me under your breath on your final round of Twisting Side Planks, but, I swear, you’ll love me too!

Here’s how this one works: You’ll start out running one mile with your stroller, but, of course, feel free to adjust this distance to what works best for you. Then, you’ll do 21 Jump Squats, 21 Walkout Push-Ups, and 21 Twisting Side Planks. After finishing that set of 21 reps, you’ll run for one mile and then do 15 reps of each exercise. After that, you’ll run your final mile with your stroller and finish with 9 reps of each exercise. If you’re unsure of how to do any of the exercises mentioned above, check out the following links for demonstrations: Jump Squats, Walkout Push-Ups, and Twisting Side Planks.

WORKOUT 3

Both your upper and lower body will feel this workout! If you’re just starting out or returning to exercise after pregnancy, feel free to reduce the number of reps per round. Try 20 walking lunges and 10 push-ups to start. Once you’re comfortable with that, add 5 more reps to each exercise every time you do this workout. You can also reduce the number of rounds you do. And, of course, if you can’t bust out 100 push-ups in one workout, be sure to modify them. I did about 10 regular push-ups before I went to my knees for the modification. I’d much rather do a nice-looking, modified push-up with good form than do some sort of weird worm thing trying to do regular ones. Plus, you get a MUCH better workout when you do push-ups with proper form.

  1. Love that it has so many uses for each stage! Wish I would have known about this stroller before I bought my current stroller!

  2. I love that this works with the Chicco car seat. The fact that it is lightweight, not too bulky for every day use but also is a jogging stroller is another major pro feature. I appreciate learning so much about this stroller as we are expecting our first at the end of September. Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

  3. I love the versatility of this stroller! I am a runner and my stroller keeps stalling on me. This would be great!

  4. I love the idea of the hand-activated parking break and deceleration break. Being able to control the speed on hills without having to strain my arms/back too much is really, really appealing! It will make the future runs with my son Everett that much more enjoyable. 🙂 He’s 3 months right now, so I can’t wait for the day when we share that experience together.

  5. The 3 in 1 is awesome!! We are trying for number #2 right now and this would be perfect since we no longer have a stroller or infant carrier!

  6. Firstly, i love these stroller workout’s – i’m saving them for the future (am currently 4 months pregnant) so know they will come in handy in a few months. That being said, we are on the hunt for good strollers (etc.) as this is a brand new addition to our family. Your reviews, plus looking over the many features on the Chicco, it’s hard to pick one – i’m a fan that is a jogger (so i can keep up/get back to running post baby), and thus the front wheel that locks is a huge bonus. but i also love the safety harness, so i know my baby will be secure while i use it. Lastly, the large canopy looks great – many reviews i have seen of other strollers say the cannopy are often small, or fly back easily when even going on a light jog.

    Thanks for this give-away opportunity! (crossing my fingers)

  7. Looks great for different terrain with the bigger wheels! & brakes on the hand bar for running! Thank you.
