Many people are still concerned with workout out while pregnant. Here is an article I wrote for Club Life Magazine about pregnancy and fitness per trimester!
At this point in pregnancy, you are all bad ass muthas. You are a freaking champion for even thinking about working out. Thus, when you finish this workout you may always consider yourself one bad ass mutha.
|Make sure to fix your face when calling yourself bad ass.|
Begin this workout with a 5 minute stationary cardio warm-up. Some examples include marching on the spot, step-touch, grapevine, and heel digs. Otherwise, put on your favourite music and MOVE! The more embarrassing, the better.
Complete this circuit three times and include a five minute cooldown (similar to your warm up). Depending how you feel, take anywhere between 10 and 30 seconds between each exercise.
This should take you approximately 20 minutes!
Move #1: Wide Legged Squat with Row (20 each)
|Begin with feet wider than shoulder width apart, and turn feet 45 degrees. Squat down keeping your back straight!|
|On your way back to starting, bring your elbows as close together as you can.|
Move #2: Bad Ass Mutha Plank (20 seconds)
|Make sure your wrists are directly under your shoulders. Option is to drop to your knees.|
Move #3: Table Top Chest Press (20 each)
|Because I'll never be able to say this again, check out my cleave!|
Begin with arms wider than mat-width.
|Bring chest down to the mat and push yourself back to starting.|
Move #4: Tricep Push Ups (10 each)
|Begin with your hands directly under your shoulders. Look bad ass.|
|Keeping your ELBOWS IN, bring your nose to the mat and press yourself back to starting position.|
Repeat this circuit 3 times and then get someone to rub your feet while you secretly Kegel, and tell them over and over again what a bad ass mutha you are.
