I work out 3-4 times per week with @bodybyjennla at @thebodylosangeles during cross circuit training. My favorite classes there while pregnant are her “Full Body Hit” class and “A$$ and Abs” class. I try to do yoga 1-2 times per week (@wanderlusthlwd) as well to make sure I am stretching and opening my body. – Kelsey Crane
This is a great cardio/lower body workout for any trimester! Do each move for 30 – 45 seconds depending on how you are feeling that day. Rest 30-45 seconds and move on to the next exercise. Repeat for 3-4 rounds. If you need extra rest, just take what you need. Feel yourself out that day and adjust your work/rest times accordingly.– Body by Jenn LA
- Lateral side shuffles
Make sure to keep your tummy tight and your legs bent. Stay low and keep your chest up.
- In and Out Quick feet
If you don’t have Cones no problem just set up anything you have for markers. Bring both feet in and then both feet out. You can switch your lead foot half way through, then lead with the other foot.
- Walking lunge
These can be performed with or without dumbells. Make sure again to keep a little tuck in your hips and a nice solid core. As you stand up drive through that front heel to feel it a bit more in your tush.
- Alternating step ups
Use any size step you are comfortable with. Even if it is just a step in your house, that works. If you feel like you may be off balance go next to a wall or something you can hold onto.
- Squat jumps
These are tough for just about anyone. Feel free to just to regular squats if the jump seems like tough that day. You can always start with jump squats and turn them into regular squats for the remainder of the time.
