Final Video in Jennifer Johnson’s “Fit For Expecting” Prenatal Series!

by For Two Fitness February 26, 2013

Congratulations, you made it!   Here’s the  5th installment  in our prenatal exercise video series!

 

This week’s video includes exercises done in an all-fours position, which is a comfortable position for a lot of moms. We’re doing total body work today, starting with the upper body, moving to the core and then adding in lower body exercises. If you have carpal tunnel or wrist sensitivity, it can help to hold onto dumbbells instead of placing your hands directly on the floor.

Once you’ve familiarized yourself with this week’s exercises, try putting all of the videos together into one workout. Start with week 1, then do week 2,  week 3week 4, and finish off with this workout.  Take breaks when you need to and make sure to have water close by. Enjoy!

 

Here are a few tips to keep in mind while exercising:

  • Listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right or you experience pain or bleeding, stop exercising.

  • Drink water before, during and after exercise.

  • Eat a snack 1 ½ – 2 hours before exercise.
