Everyone is always looking for that quick and easy pregnancy workout that you can do on a daily basis to keep your body in shape. I am often asked what it is that I do to keep in shape while I’m pregnant and to be honest, I never overdo it. With my first pregnancy I did jog all the way up until Olivia was born but with Ellie I did variations that weren’t as strenuous on my body. With this third pregnancy, I have been very religious about keeping up with my kickboxing workout that I try to get to twice a week. It’s an hour long and I just adjust some of the workout moves as needed for my baby. When I’m not kickboxing, I am also doing yoga once a week and fitting it workouts similar to this one here! We always try to get out with the kids and the dog when we can and this workout is great for that. I just go at my own pace and Olivia is always trying to keep up with me πŸ™‚

April is actually Stress Awareness month which is something that has always been an issue for me. I tend to get overly stressed instead of managing it on a healthy level and there are several things I have found that help me with that. The main one? Exercise. Whenever I am able to fit in a good sweat session is when I always feel my best. I also feel my best when I get ready in the morning instead of just keeping sweats on with my hair in a messy bun. Getting ready allows me to feel more confident in tackling my day. Nioxin has been one of my favorite brands for helping me to feel my best, especially after having three babies in just 5 years! If you’ve never tried Nioxin, I highly suggest you try it. It’s been AMAZING for the regrowth of my locks after breastfeeding and the thickness of my hair is FINALLY back to where I want it to be! I swear by System Kit #5  by NIOXIN as well as their Deep Repair Hair Masque. You can take their online quiz to see which system kit would be best for your hair here! After a hard workout, this has been my go to hair product in the shower for a few months now!

Quick & Easy Pregnancy Workout 

Personally, I really love to break up my workouts throughout to make them more interesting. I always switch up what I am doing every 30-60 seconds or so! Here is the current circuit type workout I am using for my pregnant body right now! 

Equipment Needed: Park bench or exercise bench at home (OR kitchen chair)

Jog x 1 minute (if you aren’t comfortable in the pelvic region, just do a fast walk)

Push-ups x 15

Walking Lunges x 30 

Jog x 1 minute (if you aren’t comfortable in the pelvic region, just do a fast walk)

Tricep Dips x 12 (with or without child) πŸ˜‰

Walking Lunges x 30 

Jog x 1 minute (if you aren’t comfortable in the pelvic region, just do a fast walk)

Bench Step Ups with Kick Back –> 10 each leg (at home you can do this on the stairs)

Walking Lunges x 30 

Jog x 1 minute (if you aren’t comfortable in the pelvic region, just do a fast walk)

Low Squats —> Make sure to watch your form on these and get down as far as possible. Now that I am nearly 25 weeks, I like using the back of the bench for some support. If you have any cervical shortening issues, I would not do this exercise πŸ™‚ 

Walking Lunges x 30

Jog x 1 minute (if you aren’t comfortable in the pelvic region, just do a fast walk)

Repeat 1-2 times if you would like! *

*depending on how I feel, I will sometimes go through this routine one more time!

    I have a good friend who is pregnant, and I will have to share this with her. I definitely should have stepped up my workout game more during my pregnancy. These look doable, and I like how you show how to get these workouts accomplished even with an older kid in tow.

    I am going to have to pass this along to a friend of mine who was concerned about working out while she is pregnant. I think she will find these techniques helpful.

    The important thing is to remain active. Looks like you are doing a great job to achieve that. Yoga and breathing execrtcises are excellent.

    What a wonderful workout! I love that there’s no special equipment required and all of the moves are easy to understand. So much fun that you incorporated your daughter .. so many expecting moms will already have a little one in tow. I wish you the best with your pregnancy!

    I should have done this while pregnant. I didn’t bother with any workouts, so it took forever to drop the pounds after I had my kids. This workout looks fantastic!

    You go mama for working out while pregnant! I stayed fit by rowing during pregnancy. You look great and this is super good for the baby as well!

    You did a great workout here. When I was pregnant, all I did was walking. I walked a fair amount though. I used to love going to the local park and walking for 45 minutes. It was so therapeutic and relaxing to get out and listen to music and walk!

    Adorable photos!!!! You did an great workout πŸ™‚ it is still important to keep fit during pregnancy. I love walking so that is what I did through all 3 of my pregnancies.

    What a super woman! I love to see pregnant women staying in shape! You look like a pro and great motivation for other expectant moms!

    I love this! For me it was swimming and long walks until my back hurt too much to walk. Then it was just swimming which felt great.
