The Stay At Home Dad Workout

You know that feeling? The one where you’re, like, “Oh man I shouldn’t have crammed my face with all that stuff over the last several weeks while standing up and trying to feed my child and then never working out ‘cause I’m too exhausted after playing dad to make any positive decisions.”

You know that feeling? You probably do if you’re a dad. Common to new parents is this whole “no time to work out because my whole life is spent trying to keep little tyrants happy and then recovering from my whole time doing that” thing.

How can you stay fit in parenthood? Simple, silly! You take a lesson from our good friends Ninjas and use your environment. Here’s how:

FYI: I recently found this video and groaned with laughter so deep i just had to share. Some of my favorite lines:

“One of the ways I get to working out is to be a good body, and that is from working out a lot.”

”… through diarrhea or needles.”

“Don’t lift with your back, you lift with your thyroid.”

“… and it’s a peekaboo kind of scenario.”

I know, right!? I lost it when I first saw it. Worthy of multiple watches indeed.

“… a peekaboo kind of scenario – which it isn’t… you’re actually in unBELIEVABLE pain.”

This is hilarious! The best parts:

1. He’s clearly Canadian. Makes it that much funnier.
2. “Sometimes you must beckon the weight.”
3. “we’re going to show you how to grow out your beard and get your eyelashes in order.” – Yes!

What I want to know is how the HELL is his house so clean? Stay-At-Home Dads want to KNOW.

(No, really.)

Hilarious! If you let your 2 year old jump on your stomach, does that count as working your abs?
