Happy Monday All! Today I wanted to share a new Prenatal Workout honing in on the arms. This is an area we can easily focus on throughout pregnancy and will need that strength when we are carrying the baby (or babies in my case), diaper bags, and lifting car seats etc. I made sure this routine has some exercises focused on our posture muscles as these are important now as our bellies get bigger and after giving birth.
Disclaimer~ I am a CSCS, certified strength and conditioning specialist and am pursuing a pre/post natal exercise specialist certification. Before any exercise program, always get clearance from your MD. Throughout this workout you never want to breath too hard that you are unable to speak. If you feel dizzy or light headed stop and take a break.
Perform each exercise for 1 minute and if you are feeling great, repeat the workout a second time through. I used 3-4# weights during the routine. Always modify planks or push ups onto your knees, the edge of the couch, or at a wall. Do not let your back arch!
Thanks for stopping by and we will talk soon! ~M
