Pregnancy exercises (+ a prenatal workout video)

This is a prenatal workout video you can do anywhere! Filled with pregnancy exercises and safe ideas for your prenatal workouts. As always, talk with a doctor before making any fitness changes.

Hey hey! I’ve got a new workout video for you today! This is for all of my friends with a bun in the oven that still want to get in a good workout. (I have to admit that while I was pregnant, I pressed “stop” on so many prenatal workouts because they just felt like a huge yawn.) This is a friendly reminder that even though I designed this with pregnant mamas in mind, you need to check with your doctor to make sure these exercises are safe for you. Pregnancy isn’t the time to add; it’s a great time to focusing on maintaining.

PREGNANCY WORKOUT VIDEO + tips for prenatal exercise

For some of my tips of working out while pregnant, check out these posts:

Prenatal yoga modifications

How to modify Orangetheory when you’re pregnant

Core training during pregnancy

Can you work out on your back during pregnancy?

Keep the intensity, lose the impact

Best pregnancy stretches

(typing “pregnancy” and “pregnant” so many times reminds me of this gem lol)

For the workout below, you can absolutely do this workout if you’re not expecting. These are some of my very favorite moves when I want to get back to basics and draw attention to my core. These are also some effective and safe postpartum exercises (if your doc gives the ok, of course).

Now, let’s get into the video! I’m so excited that my friend Katie (33 weeks when we filmed this!) could join me for this one.

Press play and work out with us. 🙂

Form cues and tips:

This workout is split into 3 7-minute blocks:

7 minutes of strength

7 minutes of barre

7 minutes of smart core work

This may vary a little from the actual video – for the barre and core segments I just taught like I was teaching a class without a focus on reps – but here’s what it looks like if you’d like to try it out on your own or pin/save for a rainy day:

    I love that video! I was pregnant the first time I saw it, and my husband and I belly laughed through it.
