Grab a pair of light weights, even some water bottles, and let’s go! You can really do all of these with no weight as well, just make sure you’re still going through the full motion and making it more of a reach with your arm than a press, curl etc! It’s a great way to get your cardio in, especially if you love some HIIT, while still staying low impact!
Since around the second half of my pregnancy, I’ve incorporated a lot of these low impact, longer interval, lightly weighted HIIT workouts so that I can still get a good sweat on and get my heart rate going while being sure to be gentle on my pelvic floor! If you’re pregnant too, remember that the baby is adding a lot of pressure to your pelvic floor and abs! It’s not that you cant sprint and jump around, but sometimes it can do more harm than good. Be sure to focus on strengthening your deep core and adjusting your workouts as your body changes! (prenatal plan in the sugarysixpack app soon:))
Anyways, time to get after it! You’re here and you’re doing amazing things for you body and mind!
Sweat, Smile, Repeat!
