Working the bump

I love that I am now “truly pregnant”, by that I mean, when I go to bend over my belly is in the way, I can hold a glass on my belly when relaxing on the couch and I find myself peeing every two seconds! The next best thing is that I am still feeling great in my workouts. 27 weeks down and only 13 or so to go. The modification I have made at this time to my workouts include cutting out Cleans (I could still do them, but my belly would require me to rainbow a bit, so I’ll just skip them for a couple months), taking a slightly wider stance for my squats to accommodate my every growing belly, lighter weights and more breaks to catch my breath or wait out my Braxton-Hicks contractions.

Today’s workout…

1/2 mile jog on treadmill

Squats – 10
Bulgarian Split Squats with Kettlebell – 10 each leg
Repeat 3 times

Overhead Press – 10
Dumbbell Push Ups – 10 (Dumbbells are simply used to accomodate the large belly and maintain my fully range of motion)
Lateral dumbbell arm raises – 10
Repeat 3 times
