There are so many awesome benefits of exercise in pregnancy, but it’s important to make sure that you are adjusting your workouts to meet the demands of your changing body.
When it comes to the long-term health of your core + pelvic floor, what you do for exercise right now, in pregnancy matters so much!
I used my 7+ years experience coaching pregnant and postpartum women to design a workout series featured on the webshow, Momentum. Tune into to the full workout video below!
What stage of pregnancy is this workout good for?
This workout is appropriate for all trimesters. If you are later in your pregnancy please make sure you are on an incline for the bench press, either with a stability ball or raised bench. If you don’t have access to either of those you can perform a seated dumbbell overhead press.
Any red flags I should watch for?
Yes! Pay attention to any:
Doming or coning of your abdomen
Leaking of pee
Pressure in your vagina
How long will this workout take?
Each round is 4 minutes and there are 3 rounds so it’s quick 12 minute workout.
What else do I need to know about exercise in pregnancy?
