Total Body Multi-Tasking Mommy Toning Workout

I’ve asked co-owner of Fitness Redefined and my good friend, Marissa Lysaght, (who is five months pregnant herself!) and also a nationally certified personal training specialist with a Master’s Degree in Maternal and Child Health to design a “multi-tasking pre and post natal circuit training workout” that you can do at home with minimal equipment.

Marissa’s total-body conditioning and core training workout can be done at home (while baby naps!) This workout targets core muscles in your abdominal region in addition to the large metabolically active muscles of your legs, hips, chest, back and arms (strengthening the large muscles will help you burn more calories, even during rest.)

While it’s best to start a fitness program (including these exercises) BEFORE you even get pregnant, the workout program is good for both prenatal and postnatal women. These exercises are recommended for women with no known contraindications, and should be followed according to your own body cues. If you are pregnant, you can begin the exercises slowly. Again, let your body be your guide; never over-exert yourself and avoid doing any movements that cause pain.
