I’m laughing as I put together this weekly workout post because I keep picturing my husband mocking my thigh abductions. He saw me editing the weekly workout video and he said, in his girly voice, “Make sure to hold your belly like this and breeeeathe.” haha. If you follow me on Instagram you saw my recent post about retiring the heavy weights, a.k.a. barbel, for the remainder of my pregnancy. I won’t go into details why, but lets just say that I have learned to listen to my body and stop when necessary. I wish I could be one of those moms in the gym doing overhead squats and power cleans at 40 weeks pregnant but it’s just not going to happen. As I approach my 34th week of pregnancy I’m just going to take it easy and do some mild workouts when I feel up to it. This week’s workout is one of those workouts I can modify and take it easy on. Don’t be fooled, if you’re not 34 weeks pregnant and need a good workout this will still have you working up a sweat!

4 Rounds of:
1 min max repetitions of squats
1 min max repetitions of tricep dips
1 min max repetitions of push-ups
1 min rest
Then 3 rounds of:
1 min max repetitions of thigh abductions (switch legs at 30 sec)
1 min max repetitions of fire hydrants (switch legs at 30 sec)
1 min rest
- Timer (We frequently use the MYWOD app and recommend it to our readers. You can keep track of your workouts, they’ve got How To videos, and of course the app has great timers.)
- Yoga Mat if desired.
- Be sure to modify this at home workout to your ability level. As you can see below, using a bench to do your push-ups and squats makes them significantly easier. If you’re ready for more intensity, try push-ups on a decline and tricep dips with your legs raised up on a chair. Whatever you choose to do can always change in the middle of the workout if necessary.
