This week’s Preggie workout just requires a set of 3kg dumbbells, if you don’t have those – simply use 1 litre plastic bottles filled with water.
I would encourage you to purchase a pair of dumbbells so that you can use the correct equipment, the lighter weights like 2-3kg ones do not cost a lot at all.
As always, make sure you are properly warmed up by going for a brisk 10 minute walk around your garden, or if you are doing this at the gym, go for a 10 minute walk on the treadmill. Make sure you never hold on to the handles on the treadmill, if you do feel unstable – rather slow it down.
Once warm – I have designed a safe effective workout that you can do in all three trimesters of your pregnancy. Make sure you do the movements slowly and as always, if anything feels wrong, or is causing any kind of pain in the wrong area – stop doing it. Listen to your body.
I know I say this all the time, but – MAKE SURE YOU CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE EMBARKING ON ANY EXERCISE REGIME DURING PREGNANCY.
Try and do 12-15 repetitions of each of the exercises and do this routine 2-4 times over depending on your energy levels.
