Although, I’m in my second trimester now, I’m aware that I never shared my workout with you during my first Trimester.
Now, this was a strange time for me because some days I woke up incredibly tired and sick that I had to say in bed, and other days I just thought, do you know what the gym will probably make me feel better. Mostly it did, but there was times when I caught myself running to the toilets mid-workout, esecaily if my blood sugar levels got too low. The trick was to eat before my morning workouts – which I have never done in my life, but this definately helped the sickness.
I always warmed up with;
I then moved on to my main workout which consisted of an upper body and lower body circuit.
I did this lower body circuit three times before moving onto my upper body circuit.
Again I did this circuit three times before doing 20 minutes of uphill walking or cardio on the bike or cross trainer.
Before embarking on any fitness plan during pregnancy PLEASE, PLEASE don’t forget to get the all clear from your doctor and midwife, drink enough water, make sure you don’t over-heat and don’t let your heart rate go too high. You should be able to hold a conversation comfortably!
Using my qualifications, I can also help devise a workout to meet your goals. These moves suit my body and I have been woking out for years, and years. What ever you do, listen to your body and don’t do anything that feels uncomfortable!
