Pregnancy Cardio Workout at Home

If you are pregnant, and looking for a good cardio or body weight strength training workout do to at home, here are some ideas and exercise videos to help you on your way. I was able to maintain a fit pregnancy by doing these same workouts in combination with a running (or walking) program. It is extremely important to continue exercising throughout pregnancy to help reduce water retention (especially in the third trimester), excess pregnancy weight gain, moodiness, fatigue, nasuea, and many other common pregnancy symptoms. Always check with your physician before starting an exercise program during pregnancy.

Pregnacy Exercises: Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD

Introducing my Pregnancy Exercises: Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD. If you are looking for a prenatal workout to do through all three trimesters of pregnancy, during your pre-pregnancy fitness plan, and for post-delivery recovery, look no further.

For a very limited time, I am accepting pre-orders for the Pregnancy Exercises: Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD with an added incentive of no shipping and handling fees!

Ab and Core Exercises During Pregnancy

It is important to continue stimulating your ab and core muscles during pregnancy. It will help with labor and delivery and will speed up recovery. After the first trimester, it is best not to do ab exercises on your back (and risk cutting off the oxygen supply to the baby).

Try these ab and core exercises after warming up properly. Continue breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth.

Get Toned, Sexy Arms, Even During Pregnancy

Do you want toned, sexy arms during pregnancy and beyond? Are you worried that heavy lifting will be unsafe during pregnancy or make your arms look bulky and masculine? Here is a great circuit to get strong, sexy, feminine arms. Do this 5 minute circuit a few times a week in combination with cardio and strength training exercises during pregnancy.

Pregnancy Cardio Circuit for a Workout at Home

Try this tough core and cardio 5 minute workout during pregnancy. I picked one with less jumping and bouncing. 🙂 The relaxin hormone can make it hard to continue lunge jumps and plyometrics. I had to scale back a bit on my plyos in the third trimester of pregnancy because my pelvis tended to get sore.

With this pregnancy cardio circuit, you will stimulate your back, abdominal, arm, and leg muscles without even leaving the ground! This quick circuit will get your heart rate up to fat burning and cardio zone, while strengthening and toning your core! It’s a tough workout, but worth the results!

Did Jessica Simpson Gain Excess Weight During Pregnancy on Purpose?

Jessica Simpson signed a 3 mil Weight Watchers Deal after gaining excess pregnancy weight.

Jessica Simpson recently gave birth to a baby girl. But there was, and still is, a lot of press surrounding Jessica’s pregnancy weight gain. She made a few appearances in interviews looking rather large, and it was clear that she had not gained the mear 25-35 recommended pregnancy pounds. Initially, my thought was that Jessica simply overate and stopped exercising.

However, recently there has been a new developent. Simpson reportedly signed a contract to work with Weight Watchers to shed the “baby fat.” I read an article yesterday where Simpson claimed that she has been “planning” to work with Weight Watchers for a while … curious since she wasn’t obese before pregnancy, but seemed to have gained excessive weight during her pregnancy. Is it possible that Jessica packed on the pounds on purpose so she could sign a few million dollar contract with Weight Watchers? I think so! But the better question is — would you do the same for a few million dollars? Potentially compromise the health of both you and your baby?
