(PREGNANCY frieNdly) upper body burn

This upper body workout had my shoulders, back and biceps on 🔥. This is pregnancy friendly. 

During pregnancy, our growing uterus puts pressure on the two bands of abdominal muscles that meet in the middle of our stomach. This can cause them to separate in a condition known as diastasis recti (or abdominal separation). it is important to avoid activities and movements that cause "coning" as it can make it worse. I say this so you can be more aware! 

I am doing incline pushups to modify from a regular push-up. If you still need to modify you can try to do them on your knees. 


Pushups x 10 

DB Rows x 12


Hammer curls x 10

Seated shoulder press x 12

Bicep curls x 10 

Lateral raise x 10 

Front raise x 10

Lunch Time Leg Workout

Another lunch time workout for Jax and I while Marlie slept. On the menu today: LEGS! Doing legs at home is a lot easier than you realize. You don't need any fancy equipment like a leg press machine, stair master, or a squat bar to fire up your lower-body muscles.

This one had my glutes on fire and I was so happy about it. You can do this circuit anywhere—your living room, a hotel room, a park — as long as you have some weights and space around you. That makes this workout the ultimate zero-excuse leg burner.

I used a 25 lb dumbbell for this workout and if you want to ramp it up you can add a band to the glute kickbacks and monster walks


DB squat to straight leg DL x 12

Glute kickbacks x 20 each leg

Goblet squat with 4 pulses at the bottom x 10

Single arm DB lunges x 12 each leg

HIIT Finisher 3x

Monster walks 4 forward and 4 back x 4

sprawl to squat x 12
