Turn on the music and start working on those muscles! Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak designed these moves specifically for pregnant mamas. Tone your whole body with the overhead triceps extension, stiff leg dead lift, and plank.
Get fit for delivery and beyond. Designed by celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, these three prenatal moves will tone your arms, core, legs, and back. Grab a set of light weights, your dock's okay, and let's get started. First, we're going to do the overhead triceps extension. Stand with your feet hip width apart, knees soft, holding one dumbbell with both hands. Arms straight above shoulders. Slowly bend your elbows and lower the weight behind your head until the elbows form a 90 degree angle. Raise the weight back to starting position and repeat. Do 15 reps. This exercise is called the stiff-leg dead lift. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand. Palms facing the front of your thighs. Keeping your head and chest up and shoulders back. Slowly push your hips back and lower the weights toward the floor. You should feel this in your **** and hamstrings. Return to starting position and repeat. Do 15 reps. Next up, the plank. Get down on your knees. Then lean forward onto your forearms. Elbows directly under shoulders. Palms flat on the floor. Extend your legs out behind you, lift your hips, and push up with your arms. You should be supporting your weight with your hands and toes, belly button pulled toward your spine. Your body should form one long line from your heels to your shoulders. Hold here, keeping your core engaged. Abs pulled in tight for 30 seconds. Do it once a week, alternating with our other total body workouts. For more, go to americanbaby.com/pregnancy-workouts.
