My Favorite At Home Pregnancy Safe Exercises

December 12, 2017

Pregnancy is a time unlike anything I have ever experienced. It has been an absolute joy but that does not mean it has gone by without its hurdles. Now as someone who in the past worked out consistently and always had a game plan going into my workouts, pregnancy definitely introduced some hurdles. It challenged me to get creative, to listen to my body and then shove my pride aside and modify when needed. Luckily for myself, my certification in Pre-natal Fitness helped me tremendously when it came to navigating a new workout routine. However, I know that this is not the case for everyone else out there.

It is for this reason, that I wanted to put together this posting to show you wonderful mamas how to adapt your current workout regimes to fit this new change in your life. Additionally, I wanted to select exercises that can be done from your own home (or anywhere really!) with either your own bodyweight, dumbbells or bands.

Sure pregnancy can be scary and intimidating but by empowering yourself with this knowledge, you can continue having a healthy and fit pregnancy that will benefit both you and your baby!
