Pregnancy Ab Exercise Video

It is very important to continue strengthening your ab muscles during pregnancy.  Try this pregnancy ab exercise video if you are pregnant — or even if you aren’t! If you don’t have an exercise ball, use a stool or the edge of your couch.

Doing this pregnancy ab exercise video consistently will help keep your abdominal muscles strong throughout your pregnancy. It will also help your recovery after delivery as well. If you are trying this video after delivery, be sure to keep your belly button in toward your spine. Do not push your tummy out. If you have issues with Diastasis recti (abdominal separation) postpartum, it is even more important to do these exercises properly.

Sit on the edge of a stability ball holding your arms out straight in front of you. Lean back, then come up slowly using your abdominal muscles. Variation: Lean back and when you come up, point your arms to the left of your knees to work your transverse obliques. Repeat on the right side. Do sets of 15 reps on each side.

If you are trying this pregnancy ab exercise video during pregnancy, and you have any questions, please let me know! I continued ab exercises throughout my entire pregnancy and it certainly paid off. My tummy looked pretty decent 10 days postpartum. I do these ab exercises in combination with planks and other core moves. Visit my exercise video page for more ideas on ab exercises after you deliver. Best wishes!

    Thanks for this post. It is really very essential for me. I am also a pregnant in 12 weeks. This is my first time. I should try to do this exercise, as soon as possible. Thank you again.
