I’ll be posting fairly often about my training during pregnancy and giving sample workouts. Here are my other recent posts in this series.
I’m finding that the second trimester is really interesting. During the first trimester I was too tired to realizing how exciting it is to be pregnant and there weren’t a ton of noticeable (at least on the outside!) physical changes going on. This trimester there have been a lot more physical changes, most notably my growing belly. Seems like it’s getting bigger every day.
I’ve had a decent amount of energy as long as I get enough sleep, but have noticed that when I slack on getting a good night sleep I feel really exhausted and run down. Overall, pregnancy has helped me get to know my body even better than I did before.
I’m finally feeling the little guy moving around a lot more. Sometimes I wonder what he thinks when I workout…does he think it’s exciting like an amusement park ride or is he really thinking…please just sit on the couch, mom!
Here’s another workout I’ve been loving this trimester:
- Bodyweight Squats x20
- Overhead Presses with Kettlebell 7R/7L
*Repeat 3 or 4 times
- 2-Handed Single Kettlebell Clean/Squat/Press x5
- Plank 1 min.
* Repeat 3 or 4 times
- Kettlebell Swings 30 sec swing/30 sec rest
* Repeat for 5 minutes
For anyone else out there who’s pregnant, check out these super cute workout shirts. A friend of mine sent the site to me and I also just came across them on twitter!
