Remember, to keep you and your bub at your happiest and healthiest, consult your doctor before commencing exercise.
Try doing this workout three days a week but ensure you have 48 hours rest between each session. You can do it wherever you feel comfortable, whether it is at home or at the gym, all you need is a resistance band, a pair of dumbbells and a bench. As always, don’t forget to train mindfully; listen to your body to recognise any signs of over-working.
Squat and upright row with resistance bands
Target: Shoulders and glutes
Set-up: Start by standing on a resistance band with your feet hip-width apart. Hold the handles at your sides with your palms facing the floor.
Action: Dip into a squat with your legs forming a 90-degree angle. Return to start position while ‘rowing’ your arms upward to form a ‘T’. Return to start position. Perform 4 sets of 15.
Curtsy lunge with dumbbell
Set-up: Start by standing with legs hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in one hand.
Action: Slowly lunge into a curtsy, sliding the opposite leg toward the hand holding dumbbell. If you are holding the dumbbell in your left hand, slide your right leg. Perform 4 sets of 15 on each leg.
