Today I wanted to share a pregnancy circuit that you can try…even if you’re not pregnant you can do this and add more weight or make it higher impact.
These 11 different exercises can get your heart rate up while working muscles to help maintain strength. Notice I say maintain…you lose muscle like crazy while pregnant and certainly won’t be building muscle considering most of your protein is going into building tissue for your baby, and that’s okay! Just make sure you add some resistance to keep those muscles toned as much as possible.
Use a timer app on your phone, like “Circuit Trainer” that will alert you when to switch exercises. You can input the times for 45 seconds on with a 15 second rest in between each exercise…making it 1 minute. One time through will be 11 minutes, 2 times through will be 22 minutes, and 3 will of course be 33! You choose how long you want to go. Don’t forget that you also choose the intensity. Listen to your pregnant bodies and keep it low impact.
(Sorry if the pics are blurry. I took them from a video of me actually doing the exercises.)
Here it is:
I hope you try this (whether you are pregnant or not) and let me know what you think! It’s a great way to mix up your workouts! And it makes the time go by so quickly!
Happy Circuit Training!
