Continuing on our pregnant & fit-ish journey:
30 weeks and counting people!
On the days I run, I typically do arm day. The incline walking days I do legs. Today we will chat about arm day!
I’ll preface this like I do all our pregnant & fit-ish posts: I am not a doctor, or a professional, or a super fit chick! Just a mom/gal who likes to sweat to feel better- so, please consult with your doctor if you are pregnant and wanting to start a workout routine.
Some days I do 10 reps, other days I bump it up to 15. Just depends on the day!
Here are examples of some of them- if you don’t know how to do one that isn’t pictured- just google it and I’m sure you will get tons of examples!:
Palms in – shoulder press
– hang your arms by your sides and shrug your shoulders up towards your ears.
– same as front raise above except out to your side vs the front
Now, what I am comfortable with, may be completely different than what you are comfortable with! The main thing is keeping your heart rate in check (Can you talk in a complete sentence?) Staying hydrated, and not overdoing it! As my doctor told me, think more reps, less weight. Longer distance, less incline & speed. etc. But please—consult with your doctor and figure out what is best for you and your babe!
There have been weeks I’ve done nothing and weeks I’ve worked out every day- I just listen to my body and go with it!
happy arm day!
