But in order to reap these benefits, it’s important to engage in exercises that are safe for you and the baby. In this video, Sabrena Merrill walks you through some exercises that will help strengthen your core and other muscles – ones that will ensure you’re healthy and ready for your new addition.
Video Rating: 4 / 5 If you have been following our Stability and Mobility core conditioning program for the past few weeks, then it is time to increase the level of difficulty and progress to a Movement-based training program. The overall twelve week exercise program is designed to develop total body strength along with cardiovascular endurance. This program follows the ACE Integrated Fitness Training model where the first Phase is Stability and Mobility training and the second (current) Phase is Movement-based training. The goal of the second four-week phase of the program is to develop effective motor control and coordination for the five basic movements of exercise: single-leg movements like step-ups or lunges, squatting (or bending), pushing, pulling and rotation. For optimal results try to do the exercises at least two times during the week and once on the weekend for a total of three days per week.
