It's been said that if you only do one workout move, it should be a squat. While we never advocate sticking to one move exclusively, there's something to this advice: Squats work so many different body parts. And yes, one amazing side effect of doing your squats is that you'll likely have your best butt ever—but there's more to the move than just that.
Pregnant women can definitely benefit from squatting... As long as they take appropriate precautions. Like with everything else, it's all about listening to your body, consulting your doctor and modifying the moves to suit your pregnant body.
Fitness expert Jennifer Forrester has put together an incredible squat-centric sequence that's ideal for every stage of your pregnancy: The move will pump up your heart rate, tone your body and strengthen your lower half. Best of all, it's an ideal option for pregnant women, especially if they follow Forrester's advice and make slight modifications with each new trimester.
