How to Workout Pregnant

Certain Exercises Should be Avoided While Pregnant.

There’s no doubt that your workout routine needs to change a little when finding out you are Pregnant.

Being Pregnant doesn’t mean stopping your fitness activities, but it does mean being careful and smart about which exercises you do and how you do them.

I have also had lots of questions about how to eat during the First Trimester of Pregnancy and beyond to ensure the best nutrition for baby as well as keeping mom in shape and avoiding unnecessary fat gain.

In this video I share with you my top pregnancy cravings, pregnancy nutrition tips, how I delt with morning sickness, and how to fulfill a sweets craving or urge to binge or eat a LOT of food without too much damage to your or the baby’s body.

My Top Cravings with this Second Pregnancy:

  • Cheese
  • Peanut Butter Cup Smoothies (recipe shared below)
  • Summer Fruits like mangoes, cherries, watermelon, nectarines, peaches, papayas etc..

My First Trimester Pregnancy Food Aversion:

  • Chicken (couldn’t eat it or even look at it for a month!)

Exercises to Avoid while Pregnant:

  • Planks (High or Low)
  • Leg Lifts
  • Crunches
  • Sit Ups
  • Twists
  • Full Push Ups (you can do modified ones)
  • High Intensity anything (if you are not used to doing it pre-pregnancy)

My Favorite Exercises to Start Doing more of once Pregnant:

  • Hip Stretches
  • Pregnancy Squats
  • Lower Back and Hip Foam Rolling

Recipe for my Peanut Butter Cup Protein Smoothie:

  • 1 cup water & ice
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Whey Isolate from EarthNutri (code liveleantv25 for 25% off — https://goo.gl/MG8qT8)
