Now, don’t be turned off by the title. Anyone, pregnant or not, can try this home dumb bell workout!
I first shared a body weight only prenatal workout, so this time we are adding weights. Plus, it’s a fun distraction to see my growing belly bouncing around on the video, right?!
As with the previous workout, I want to remind you to only do the moves your are comfortable with. I’m in my 6th month of pregnancy (25 weeks/second trimester) and still feeling confident with many exercises while others must be modified.
Looks a little tighter at 25 weeks than it did at 23 weeks (below)!
So, here is your workout:
Look at that belly!
7 exercises performed for 20 seconds before moving to the next. You get a 10 second rest in between each exercise and 60 seconds in between rounds. Goal is 4 rounds (or more if you’re feeling peppy!).
Cooper also wants to remind you to have a balanced snack within 30-60 minutes following your workout!
He’s finishing my Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt!
1. What was your initial opinion of “prenatal fitness”? Has it changed at all? (I know mine has!)
