Hope you enjoyed my first preggie workout. Here is another one that I love doing. This one is targeted to the lower body, specifically the butt and some legs too. I am 16 weeks into my pregnancy and still trying to workout as much as I can.
Squats is a great exercise move for us right now as pregnant women – its important we strengthen our lower body in preparation for the birth but also, squats are great for strengthening the lower back so we can carry our heavy load easier.
So this is the workout:
1. Alternating side squats: 12-15 reps per side.
2. kickbacks: 12-15 reps per side
3. fire hydrant lifts: 12-15 reps per side
4. pelvic lifts: 12-15 reps
Do 3-4 sets of this workout, if you are further along in your pregnancy and can only manage 2 sets, that’s fine.
REMEMBER TO ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY FORM OF EXERCISE WHILE PREGNANT.
P.S You don’t have to be pregnant to attempt this workout – you can do this under normal circumstances too!
