Expecting More Pregnancy Workout by Sara Haley
Sculpts & Strengthens the Legs, Glutes, & Shoulders
Prepare your body for playing “So Big!” with Baby. Begin seated in your chair with your legs at least shoulder width apart. Hold one weight in each hand (at least five pounds as your baby will soon be bigger than that) at your shoulders. As you stand up, push your heels into the floor and press your weights up and together above your head, just as if you were lifting your baby up.
Finish by sitting back onto the chair. Repeat the entire sequence for 30 seconds. Remember, you are trying to initiate this movement from your legs, not your back, so try to stand up as straight as possible as you do this. Rest for 15 seconds before beginning the next exercise.Next Prev Slide 3 / 5
