Recently, I have shared prenatal fitness workouts with you. I hope you’re not tired of them! I will continue to share workouts that apply to the pregnant population and those of you not pregnant as well. I’m almost in my third trimester of pregnancy, so adjust your workout accordingly.
Today, the workout focuses on strength training with a burst of heart-pumping work at that end.
Here are the previous workouts in case you missed one:
You will need a set of dumbbells and a kettlebell if you have that available.
1. Single arm dumbbell overhead reverse lunge (R/L)
2. Low jacks
3. Plank to T with plank-jack
4. Sumo to row
5. Shoulder press
6. 30 secs. of kettlebell swings (substitution shown in video)
Do each strength move for 10 reps, except the kettlebell swings, and try for 5 rounds (more or less if you need too). It’s funny. Now, that my belly is growing and growing, more and more of my squats look like sumo squats!
Side note: I have to thank you all for the wonderful comments on my post about teaching group fitness as a pregnant instructor! So encouraging! Thank you!
