We recently watched Frozen for the first time and our whole family (Josh included) enjoyed this movie. Caden asks to watch the snowman movie at least once a day. Josh and I both feel it is important to limit his screen time but I have found the benefit in being able to find movies that he enjoys watching for times that I may need to work, cleanup the house, make dinner, or even get in a quick workout.
For all you mom’s out there who have little ones and find it hard to squeeze in your workouts I have the perfect no excuses plan for you! Turn on your televisions and get ready to sing and sweat. Plus depending on where you have your movie playing and how old your kiddos are you may even be able to sneak in a quick shower too.

Get ready to workout to Disney’s Frozen! This workout happens during the songs which will add up to just under 30 minutes of exercise. For example, during “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” you will be doing 10 squats followed by 10 Overhead Presses and repeating those two exercises the entire length of the song. Once the song is over you can rest. As a bonus you can challenge yourself whenever Olaf’s body comes apart (keep reading for more details).
If you are unfamiliar with any of these exercises visit my YouTube channel to see demonstrations. In case there is any confusion, during the song In Summer you are doing Burpees the entire duration of that song which is 2 minutes long. Make sure to count your reps so if you do this workout again you can see if you have improved. For the songs with multiple exercises listed be sure to repeat the exercises until the song is over.
If you decide you are enjoying the movie and want to keep watching here is a bonus circuit that can be added. Anytime Olaf’s body comes apart perform 20 seconds of Side Plank on each side immediately followed by 20 seconds of plank.
Let me know what you think and if you plan on trying this. Have you found any other ways to occupy your kids while you workout at home?
