Prenatal Workout Series by Fit For Expecting and Jennifer Johnson

by For Two Fitness January 17, 2013

Welcome to week 2!

If you’re just joining us for the first time, here’s a little background. To jumpstart the New Year, perinatal exercise specialist Jennifer Johnson has developed a series of prenatal exercises for our For Two Fitness moms. This is the second video in the series – if you missed the first one, watch it here. Check back next week for your next workout.

This second set of exercises is done lying on your side, which is a position most pregnant women are very familiar with. We start off by targeting your triceps and then move to your outer thighs, hips, obliques and finish off with the pelvic floor muscles. Most of the movements in this set are small but they pack a big punch. 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.
