Many women are ditching the idea that you have to be completely horizontal during your pregnancy. We are still working our day jobs, up and moving, and working out!
Just because you are growing a human, doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite workout routine! Pregnancy also puts your body into a crazy tailspin.
The sciatica , the pressure on your joints; exercising can actually be extremely helpful in relieving some of that pain. Here are some amazing exercises for you and your pregnant belly.
1. Curtsy Lunges
Curtsy lunges are a great way to work out your legs and glutes. You will lunge one leg behind the other and squat in between each lunge. This move focuses on your lower body, and has you work on strengthening your core, without any strenuous crunching.
2. Wide Squats
The wide squat, again is another great glute exercise. However the wide stance your legs are in will actually allow some relief for your hips. Hold your stomach in and lift up through your pelvic floor.
3. Triangle Pose
Triangle pose is a great way to stretch everything that has been holding up that belly. It’s a great way to stretch your back, and any tight hamstrings.
