Fit For Expecting Prenatal Workout Series by Jennifer Johnson – Week 4

by For Two Fitness February 08, 2013

WELCOME TO WEEK 4!   PERINATAL EXERCISE SPECIALIST JENNIFER JOHNSON HAS DEVELOPED A SERIES OF PRENATAL EXERCISES FOR OUR FOR TWO FITNESS® MOMS.

This week’s video features a compound exercise…meaning you’ll be working several muscle groups at one time. We work the lower body with a wide squat and upper body with I V raises. We finish off with hip circles, demonstrated standing and using a stability ball. 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.
