Personal Trainer, Rose Watson has been keeping me fit, working out with her twice a week has been amazing. Not only am I working on my strength and conditioning for my upcoming birth marathon (did I mention my last labour was 32 hours long?), but it is also amazing to have time away from “mum duties”. It’s always fun working out with Rose (how am I going to cope waiting for my body to repair before returning….)?!?
Here’s another pregnancy workout:
Circuit (Repeat 3x through)
- Romanian deadlift dbell x12
- Walking lunge (about 50 total per set)
- Abductor band walk (about 30-40 per side per set)
Cable squat 3×15
Abductor machine 3×15 (pause for 10seconds out on last rep)
Seated row 3×12
Single arm row 3×12
I really can’t wait to get back into the gym once baby is born. However, I know it’s not going to be easy. Anyone reading this who has some tips on how to manage ‘the mummy load’, body repair, abdominal separation repair tips, anything really, please post a comment below.
