Finally, a pregnancy workout that almost anyone can do (with your doctor?s approval, of course)! One of my favorite parts about this workout (besides the name, that plays off of our long 9 month baby growing months) is that it can be scaled for the beginner prego, all the way to the prego that has been working out with intensity from pre-pregnancy.
So if you have 15 minutes (warm up and cool down, included) and you want to feel great about yourself, get moving!
3 rounds of:
20 Step Jacks/Jumping Jacks
10 Deep Lunges
Set the clock for 9 minutes. Do as many rounds as you can (listening to your body, of course) of:
9 Couch Squats/Air Squats
9 Couch Push Ups/Push Ups
9 Bridge Ups/Couch Bridge Ups
Not sure exactly how to do these exercises? Watch my video below for a detailed explanation. WARNING – I get winded just demo’ing the warm up! Don’t worry…the workout isn’t that hard…I am just that pregnant!!!
Go for a walk around your neighborhood and breath in some fresh air. Appreciate that little bundle of joy you are growing, and be proud that you are doing what you can to give him/her a healthy start in life.
