Pregnancy Workout E - Weeks 16-19

Hey everyone,

Here is a second workout that is suitable for weeks 16-19 of pregnancy. 

As always, you should already be performing these types of exercises, at this intensity, prior to pregnancy AND have approval from your health care provider to exercise.

Pregnancy Workout E - Weeks 16-19

Superset A
  1. Kettlebell swings
  2. Kettlebell one-arm rows 
Video Demonstration - Kettlebell swings & one-arm rows

Superset B
  1. Racked kettlebell step-back lunges
  2. Kettlebell snatches
Racked kettlebell step-back lunges

Kettlebell snatch - Bottom
 Kettlebell snatch -Top

Feel free to modify the exercises or lower your weights as needed.  As you continue to grow, you might find these exercises are becoming harder to perform with good form.  Keep in mind your ligaments are more lax, thus you are more prone to injury - so if something does not feel good to perform, change the exercise rather than risk hurting yourself.
