8 Mom-Friendly Workout Vines You'll Love alexajeanfitness/Instagram

If there's one thing that makes a workout appealing to pregnant women and new moms alike, it's efficiency. So the idea of sourcing exercise routines on apps like Vine, with its six-second video rule, definitely appeals.

One mom-of-two from Ontario, Canada, spotted a trend and created OneSet, a Vine-like app for fitness enthusiasts that lets users submit short workout videos that anyone can do in the comfort of their own home with little to no equipment. The app has lots to offer pregnant women and new moms, as many of its users are expecting themselves or have little ones running around them as they navigate new parenthood and working out.

Feeling inspired, we've gathered 8 of our favorite mom-friendly break-a-sweat "Vines" (OK, they're technically Instagram videos, but you get the idea), many from the OneSet app, which you can download in the Google Play store (coming soon to the App store). These seconds-long videos are as quick as it gets.

Keep it Simple

Workout While You Wait

A wall is all you really need to do bridge walk-ups, decline kickbacks, superman, and decline climbers like this Australian mum. Do it while waiting for your kids to get out of school, and try to ignore those funny looks! (via @achieving_balance)
