When I was pregnant with my first child I stopped working out because I was afraid I was going to harm my baby. What I later learned after struggling with severe sciatic pain and SPD was that working out could have actually helped me feel better during my pregnancy.
This time when I learned I was pregnant I knew I wanted to stay very active during my pregnancy. While the first trimester kicked my butt in the areas of exhaustion and nausea, I still managed to get a few workouts in here and there. The moment I entered my second trimester it was like a switch was flipped, and my energy returned. I am now enjoying workouts regularly again and feeling great!
Mondays and Fridays are currently my Knocked up Fitness days. I am enjoying these Pilates and yoga based workouts and finding muscles I wasn’t aware I had. Erika’s DVDs are very easy to follow, and there are so many different workouts on them you can easily do these workouts almost every day. Erika even includes a sample workout schedule inside.
Erika is the mother of three children and her passion to keep moms in shape before, during, and after pregnancy is contagious. She leads you through the workouts in a way that is fun and geared to keep muscles toned in ways that is safe for all stages of pregnancy.
In addition to the two multi-workout disks, Erica’s website is full of tips, discussions, and additional exercises for moms. I am happily workout these DVDs into my workout schedule. I know as other exercises get harder toward the end of my pregnancy I will be able to continue using Erika’s workouts. My personal favorites right now is to do the Pilates Yoga workout on Mondays, and then combine the Core Warm-Up, Pilates Arms, and Pilates Legs on Fridays.
I am pretty positive that I will be able to use these workouts through the remainder of my pregnancy as well as postpartum!
