Active Maternity Workouts with Autumn Calabrese
Are you a mom to be? If you’re looking to stay fit during your pregnancy, make sure to check out the brand-new prenatal workouts designed by Autumn Calabrese, mom and creator of the 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and The Master’s Hammer and Chisel and the soon to be released Country Heat. Before you begin any of these workouts, make sure to check with your doctor and be cleared to exercise.
The series of four workouts (so far) includes three prenatal workouts (one for each trimester) and one postnatal workout. The workout designed for the first trimester focuses on building a solid foundation through a series of eight movements. It will help you tone muscle, increase circulation and endurance, and get your body ready to bring your baby into the world.
The weighted movements engage your lower body, upper body, and core. If the weights become too heavy, simply put them aside and do the moves without them. Some of these moves test your balance, but don’t be concerned if you feel like it’s all over the place. Autumn explains that this may happen as your body is rapidly changing. But, as your baby grows and as you progress with these workouts, you should begin to gain a better awareness of your body and get better at balancing.
Once you’re through the first trimester, continue to follow along with the rest of the Active Maternity series.
