Since I announced I was pregnant, I have received numerous emails about exercising during pregnancy. Since then, I have shared prenatal workouts throughout my pregnancy and hopefully answered many of your questions. If not, ask away!
It’s tough to get in front of the video camera when I’m this round, but I wanted to share a new third trimester prenatal workout.
The following are exercises I do regularly and still feel comfortable doing. Ultimately, listen to your body and consult your doctor.
Baby Got Back!
1. Sumo squat with row
2. Weighted Plank to “T”
3. Overhead reverse lunges
4. Incline push-ups
I demo each exercise and show the workout starting at 5:10 if you’d like to scroll ahead. I set my timer so each exercise is done for 6 sets of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of recovery (a modified tabata) which is essentially 3 minutes of work before moving to the next exercise.
In class, I frequently incorporate these moves and usually add a core focused exercise that I coach participants through. This gives me a breather and allows them to keep working hard.
And, I’m digging my new Reebok PWR leggings.
I’ll give you a complete review in another post. They are unbelievably comfortable!
1. Are you a group fitness instructor or personal trainer?
2. What’s your favorite protein bar?
