I did two very different pregnancy workouts today and both were just what I needed. Up until now, I’ve just been adapting normal workouts but my pelvis and hips have started really bothering me, especially during the night, so I decided to do some pregnancy focused ones today. I’m definitely finding the discomfort is worse when I don’t exercise, so really hoping I can keep exercising again as long as possible 🤞🏻(and for my mental sanity!) So no high impact or heavy heavy weights workouts for me for now though until I’ve seen the physio! .

36 1/2 weeks and still going strong with my workouts! Hoping all the squats and lunges get baby girl here sooner! If not, let’s hope they at least make delivery easier! Ha! •

Monday I hit 28 weeks in my pregnancy! I can't believe I'm already in my third trimester!
I have been thankful to feel healthy enough to keep up with my workouts.
My workouts throughout my pregnancy have included weight training, 2 boot camps a week, cardio (mostly on the elliptical) and yoga once a week.
I am starting to feel more random aches and pains , so adding things in like these ankle weights for leg workouts have really helped.
I did this lunge leg lift combo in a superset with squats.
Moms or mommas to be, what are your favorite workouts while pregnant?! #FitPregnancy #thirdtrimester @pregnant._.world #thirdtrimesterworkouts -Jess @pnmag @americanbabymagazine @pregnancymag

#thirdtrimesterworkouts are all about just.showing.up.🙌🏼 -
Though I’m d y i n g for a great sweat sesh and new hip thrust PR, this (little, sweet, new) life and season means slowing down, using what I would normally use as a warmup as a workout, and being grateful to be able to move!
-
Bands come in all sizes, but if you are like me, chances are they are forgotten at the bottom of your gym bag...

Inspiration for you!
I LOVE using bands for warming up, but they are a great stand alone as well. I would pop in some jumping in between these sets to get my heart rate up, but for now, I’m protecting that pelvic floor at all costs. 🤷‍♀️😬🤰🏻❤️.

Walk the baby out? How about burpee the baby out?! 😜. Here is a modified burpee overhead press I like to do.
Later in pregnancy I have used a bench or a step to modify different exercises. It just helps not to put as much stress on my body and feels better to me.

Excuse, how many do you have?? I can come up with at least 1 million that don’t even have to do with this bump right here!! But you know what’s even more important than my excuses?? My REASON to be doing all this!! This little (🤣) bump right and my 2.5 year old #terddler are my reason!! We talked a lot about this in my training yesterday. Really diving into your reason so on the days you have 1 million excuses you still get up and push!! I want to see these 2 grow up and get married and watch their children grow (should that be the path they choose) and be able to chase them around and play for hours!! That’s my reason, I want to live a long, full healthy life for them and the generations that come after them!!

#babybumpsandbootyshorts wod during #naptime courtesy of @crossfitlinchpin
I’ve been a big fan of Linchpin wods pretty much forever now. Something I love about it is that Pat Sherwood really puts an emphasis on embracing scaling and also that whatever your workout ends up being, fitness will be achieved.
During pregnancy, I embrace scaling (a lot), and my workout goals aren’t time or weight based. But more just to move my body, feel good, and achieve a little fitness.
So, scaling was embraced. Fitness was achieved. Naptime was a success.
Swipe to see the original wod, and then how I modified it for #pregnancyandpostpartumathleticism 🤰🏻 #ppcoach #crossfitlinchpin

Jerks, there are so many variations. Split jerk, squat jerk, push jerk. All explosive, dynamic, and aggressive movements. Also, movements that get put aside during the later months of pregnancy.
Unlike the snatch & clean where we’re removing them from our training to preserve bar path, the consideration with jerks is more directly related to the core and pelvic floor. Dynamic, aggressive (and overhead) movements cause a lot of stress to both core & PF during pregnancy. Rather than power through and continue to train these movements, consider goals of longevity as an athlete.
There are still options for training similar movements, muscles, or strength & stabilization work that carries over to the jerk. Start by going less dynamic, with a gradual shift over time to removing OH work as needed.
Sample mods/substitutions:
•strict press from split (with bar)
•single arm strict press from split (dumbbells)
•barbell strict press
•behind the kneck press
•seated dumbbell press (alternating)
•front rack carry
•front rack hold
•reverse lunges
•squats
Yes, squats. Even though the jerk in large part has an overhead portion, the strength is power from leg drive. Squats won’t take away from your jerk.
Think outside the box, switch it up, be creative. Train smarter not harder during this chapter.

Heavy single + an overhead movement? Most of us have put that aside midway through the second trimester. Why? Well it’s just not the time to go for a max, and overhead squats require a lot of core strength/stress. With pregnancy this can result in a lot of downward or outward pressure on the core & pelvic floor.
So, rather than go for that overhead squat, switch it up. This 12 min EMOM pulls together some “core” work, glute work, and upper back strength. Alternate each minute through the three movements.
Farmers carry: These are single arm. Aim to keep your shoulders and hips parallel, don’t shift to one side. Switch arms at the halfway point. Think about that car seat you’ll be lugging around in a few months.
Goblet squat: keep weight in your heels, shift hips back and then down. Work on breathing through each movement. Choose a weight that’s a little challenging but you can do all 10 unbroken. Don’t empty your tank on these.
Ring Rows: Again, breathe throughout the movement. Instead of going rapid fire use a nice tempo with a nice controlled pull, a 2-3 second pause at the top, and a controlled descent.
You should be getting at least :20 rest during each minute, if not modify accordingly.
Adjust the length of the EMOM with the timeline your coach gives the class to work up to that OHS.
Not sure if you should be doing overhead squats anymore? Let’s chat. Send me a message or email me (coachamyboyle@gmail.com). @pregnant.postpartum.athlete #pregnancyandpostpartumathleticism #ppacoach

No one asked for this program. I needed it. So I built it. Now, I’m putting it out there.
2-3 days a week the programming I follow would have dedicated ab work or gymnastic skills work. During pregnancy, that’s not really my cup of tea. I’d substitute here and there with my go to movements.
Eventually, I decided rather than just mixing and matching miscellaneous movements to fill time, I needed a program. Something progressive.
Something dedicated to working areas I knew could use some extra love during pregnancy. Something to fill that 10 min of core or skill work that wasn’t really relevant to me during pregnancy.
Posterior and Posture: For the Pregnant Athlete is 3 days a week of programming that can be done in 15 minutes. It can be used to fill the gap during strength workouts, or as a substitute when everyone else is hitting their 7min of abs. It can be done in conjunction with your current programming, or as a stand alone workout on those days (or weeks) you just don’t have it in you for much more.
It was written with the pregnant athlete in mind and includes considerations for the core, pelvic floor, alignment, and breathing. However, no program is one size fits all during this chapter. This is a baseline, you may need to make some individual adaptations for YOUR pregnancy and YOUR body.
The equipment needed can be found in your standard CrossFit gym, but many workouts can also be done at home with limited equipment. Access to a video library of movements is included.
Posterior & Pregnancy is $15/month, with programming delivered weekly. Link in profile to receive more information for signup!

I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I cherry pick my workouts. And I’m ok with that.
I look at the full week of workouts in advance. Look at how I might modify. Look at how the movements stack up. Look at my calendar and see what else I have going on in life.
Then I pick and choose. I usually still get in the gym 4 days a week. So, what 4 workouts am I going to enjoy? What ones can I modify to be fun? Which ones give my body a purposeful workout? Which ones might make athlete brain show up? Which ones might discourage me? What days look like a good rest day?
I love CrossFit for the constantly varied. I love it because there’s always a weakness to work on. Right now? Well the variance comes in my creativity (hello lots of kettlebells, farmers carries, and all the squats). The weakness I’m working on? Taking some rest. Not showing up. Doing workouts with intention, and not just because they look like that miserable kind of fun.
So yes, I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I absolutely cherry pick workouts. It’s ok if you do too.

I love CrossFit for the constantly varied. I love it because there’s always a weakness to work on. Right now? Well the variance comes in my creativity (hello lots of kettlebells, farmers carries, and all the squats). The weakness I’m working on? Taking some rest. Not showing up. Doing workouts with intention, and not just because they look like that miserable kind of fun. So yes, I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I absolutely cherry pick workouts. It’s ok if you do too. @pregnant .postpartum.athlete #ppacoach #pregnancyandpostpartumathleticism

I did two very different pregnancy workouts today and both were just what I needed. Up until now, I’ve just been adapting normal workouts but my pelvis and hips have started really bothering me, especially during the night, so I decided to do some pregnancy focused ones today. I’m definitely finding the discomfort is worse when I don’t exercise, so really hoping I can keep exercising again as long as possible 🤞🏻(and for my mental sanity!) So no high impact or heavy heavy weights workouts for me for now though until I’ve seen the physio! .

Sometimes we get in a funk during pregnancy, where we find 1-2 movements that we enjoy and we substitute those for everything (hey farmers carry...how many times have I done you this week?). But part of CrossFit is constantly varied. So, when we limit ourselves in some areas then we need to think outside the box.
Overhead presses are something that I begin to limit during 2nd & 3rd trimester. Sets of strict presses (especially heavy weight) are movements a lot of athletes start seeing a rib flare during and lose alignment. They are also a movement that requires a lot of core stabilization which often results in mismanaged intra abdominal pressure.
While mismanaged IAP doesn’t always mean stop 🛑, sometimes it is better to switch things up.
Today, try switching it up with some bodybuilding while everyone gets after their strict press. Choose weights that you can get through all reps unbroken, but get a little difficult during the second half of the set. Exercises should be performed in a controlled manner, don’t just rip through ugly reps to get them done. If you haven’t done these in while, be prepared for the curls to humble you a little. These movements are also a great opportunity to focus on controlled breathing. Inhale at rest, exhale through exertion, and rest as needed between rounds.

What Does “Listen to Your Body” Even Mean?
——
“Absolutely! You can keep doing CrossFit during pregnancy. Just listen to your body and keep at a conversational pace”- The advice my OB gave me during my first trimester when I questioned how pregnancy impacted my athletic hobbies. When pushed a little further, she said “well, don’t do anything aggressive - like train for a marathon”. Okay. No worries. Running a marathon isn’t anywhere on my to-do list.

I’m booking strategy calls in September now. We can discuss what you need to listen for, how to address any symptoms, do some movement assessment and build a strategy. Message me for more info! If you do a strategy call during Sept, I’ll also add on a 15min strategy call during the October CrossFit Open.

#thirdtrimesterworkouts are all about just.showing.up.🙌🏼 -
Though I’m d y i n g for a great sweat sesh and new hip thrust PR, this (little, sweet, new) life and season means slowing down, using what I would normally use as a warmup as a workout, and being grateful to be able to move!
-
Bands come in all sizes, but if you are like me, chances are they are forgotten at the bottom of your gym bag...
-
Inspiration for you!
I LOVE using bands for warming up, but they are a great stand alone as well. I would pop in some jumping in between these sets to get my heart rate up, but for now, I’m protecting that pelvic floor at all costs. 🤷‍♀️😬🤰🏻❤️.
-
1/ Romanian Deadlifts❤️❤️❤️ (also great warmup before deadlifts!)
2/ Bicep curls
3/ Banded squats
4/ Banded Rows

These are only a FEW ideas to get you started...#lifewithafouryearold #makemylifeinterruptible #justnotyet

Burpees....something most of us have a love/hate relationship with. Personally, I’m more on the hate side.
Burpees are a movement that athletes typically modify once they have a noticeable bump. Starting with the awkward burpee to a knee push-up, then progressing to burpees with a push-up on a box of plate, and eventually a push-up to a box sans the jump.
With the third option, they can get kind of boring. The burpee becomes the rest portion of the workout, and you don’t get the deep lung burn we all love to hate. This isn’t a terrible thing, you probably shouldn’t be going for that level of intensity anyway.
But, there are options to help keep your heart rate a little more elevated and get a little more stimulus out of your burpee mod. Swipe to see demos of my current favorite modifications or movement substitutes. —-
•push-up to box step up
•push-up to air squat
•light dumbbell thruster
•light dumbbell single arm thruster
Switch it up, keep it varied and interesting, tons of options are out there. Pay attention to pressure against your linea alba and adjust the box height as needed.
Need help modifying? Or knowing when & what to modify? I’m booking strategy consults through September now via the link in my profile. Let’s talk about pregnancy considerations as they relate to you, and how you can navigate pregnancy and postpartum while staying active.

During the second half of pregnancy, deadlifts are a movement most moms begin to adjust. The stance with traditional deadlifts may need to be modified to accommodate a growing belly.
KB deadlifts can allow for a slightly wider stance without going into a full sumo deadlift, while still working the glutes, hamstrings, and back. With a moderate weight this movement is a great opportunity to work on breathing techniques with an inhale at the bottom, and exhale on exertion.
Today’s #pregnancyandposterior workout is a 15 min AMRAP, but the focus is on quality of the movement. You’ll need 2-3 kb. One for the carry (this may be the same one you use for the swings), and a slightly heavier one for the deadlifts.
Single arm carries: keep your ribs stacked over hips, and focus on staying neutral. Not tilting towards the arm holding the kettlebell, or overcompensating with a sway to the other side. I recommend a 25m distance where you can switch arms for the carry at the turn around point.
Kettlebell swings: Start with a hinge at the hip and swing to about eye level. Think about opening up your hip to a neutral position and not over arching backwards.
Kettlebell deadlifts: again, start with the kettlebell between your feet and initiate with a hinge, lifting with your glutes and hammies rather than low back. Keep a weight you can do all reps in 1-2 sets ideally, but with a nice flat back. You can also use a low box or bumper plate to elevate the kb a bit if needed.
If you’re interested in more workouts like this message me! 3x/week program coming with workouts focused on the posterior chain and posture. Workouts are designed with the pregnant athlete in mind, and considerations that go along with that!

The third trimester definitely has me slowing down a bit. I have also shifted my focus a lot to dedicate more time to practicing labor and birth breathing and meditation, nightly yoga and foam rolling. Here is a short workout that works the joints and muscles that are engaged heavily during a natural birth. In fact the first exercise, the frog squats are a position that many women giving a natural birth choose to birth from ❤️. Triple set 4 x: 15 frog squats/ 15 lateral raises/ 15 bicep curls

New Blog Post on training during pregnancy and navigating the grey area.
Link to full post in Bio
There is no black or white answer. There is no guideline of “Every pregnant woman should do this instead of that”, or at least there shouldn’t be. There is a lot of grey area. A lot of it depends. A lot of individual considerations.
Every woman and every pregnancy is different. The timeline of how you adapt during your first pregnancy will be entirely different than your third. Modifications that the mom next to you makes may be entirely different than yours. Postpartum fitness goals will vary from the competitive CrossFit athlete to the mom that likes to get in a morning run, to the mom who hits the 9am class a couple times a week.
So how do you train in the grey area? Awareness and education. Fitness during pregnancy is about more than doing what you’ve always done and listening to your body. It’s about understanding the impact on your system of growing a human, and then also understanding the trauma on your body from childbirth. It’s about giving your body the respect it deserves for growing a human, and allowing it rest and recovery when needed.... @pregnant.postpartum.athlete #pregnancyandpostpartumathleticism #ppacoach

This isn’t even close to what was programmed for today.
Some days my workouts mimic the programming I follow. Whether it be similar movements, similar muscles worked, similar intentions.
Other days, I write a workout that’s better for me. Something more intentional and purposeful for what my body (and mind) need right now.
Today I wanted(needed) to move. Long, slow, and deliberately. Move a little weight, get my heart rate up some, sweat a bit. Mission accomplished.

Want to workout but can't get off the floor? 😂 Save this workout for the days where you want to workout but don't feel like moving too much lol. 😴.
I have included 2 types of pushups. If you can do the first type without doming or straining too much, do this one. If you experience doming (see last post) or it's just too challenging, complete the second type of pushup.
1. Pushups: 10-12 reps
2. Glute bridge hold: hold for 15-20 seconds. Dont forget to breath!
3. Dips: 10-12 reps. Make sure chair or bench will not slide.
4. Supported situps. Again if you experiencr doming, add more cushions behind you or simply leave it out. This shoukd be very light abdominal activation just to keep those muscles working. 10-12 reps
Try 3-4 rounds depending on energy levels. 😊

Cleans are a little less intimidating to most than snatches, but they’re still something most pregnant athletes have removed from their workouts by the halfway mark. So as a P&PA, what do you do on clean day?
Well, you show up & you participate. There are so many options for substitute exercises that will still support your weightlifting while taking into consideration your pregnancy.
Just as with snatches, as you progress through your 40(ish) weeks the list dwindles some, but there are options.
Some of my favorite options are:
•clean grip deadlifts (shown in video)
•clean pulls
•front squats
•tempo front squats
•hook grip front squats
•dumbbell cleans (single or double)
•kettlebell cleans (single or double)
•goblet squats
•kettlebell swings
•dumbbell high pulls
•front rack holds
•bent over rows
What you do doesn’t have to mimic the class. If a 1 RM is programmed, choose a few movements that better support you and build a 10-15min emom.
Have fun, switch it up, use your hookgrip when applicable.

Do you think anyone took me serious when i decided to become a fitness coach at 34 weeks pregnant?! 🤷🏼‍♀️
•
They prob thought I would fizzle out after having the baby, going thru the sleepless newborn phase, or when things got hard.
•
But I have goals. BIG ones! This is a lifestyle & it’s given me all the tools to achieve the stepping stones on the path to reaching those goals!
•
I have NEVER been consistent with anything. I have NEVER been able to bring in this kind of steady income {from home or anywhere else}. I have NEVER been part of such a supportive community of women who genuinely want to see each other succeed. I have NEVER been this healthy or happy in my life!
•
So who cares what everyone else thinks when or why you start?! It’s YOUR life & no one gets to tell you how big your dreams can be!✨

Opening up 5 more spots in my mentorship! Let’s chat & get you on the road to crushing those health, fitness, & financial goals!!

Building to a “heavy” set means different things to so many athletes & coaches. During pregnancy, we know max effort lifts aren’t recommended. So how do you approach this strength session?
Build to a moderate set of three. A set where you can move all three reps smoothly without grinding, but where if you went for 5 reps it might be questionable.
As you work up, I recommend doing sets of 3 to get additional volume in, and also allow for you to really know whether you can move the weight for the intended rep scheme. You should be breathing through the movement, but have a partner watch for coning/doming as some women present this during bench sessions.
The drop sets are there to get some extra volume and work in as you aren’t going as heavy as the athletes surrounding you and will likely hit your set of 3 quicker than others.
At one point laying on backs during pregnancy was not recommended, however, that is now seen as outdated information. However, your bench setup may differ from what you’re used to. Pregnancy is not the time to arch your back, as that puts your core in an nonoptimal position to function cohesively with rib flare & pelvic tilt. Rather, keep your back flat on the bench. It may be more comfortable to put your feet up on the bench with your knees bent.
If you aren’t comfortable laying flat on the bench message me and I’ll send you an alternate workout!

•••Insert motivational quote here••• There comes a point where you have to quit looking for something to motivate you and just get off your damn ass, figure out what you want and go get it.
I switched up from my prenatal workouts today to work my chest and tris Body Beast style. My arms were trembling about half way through and it felt wonderful.
I've been feeling pretty good this past week so I might increase from 3 weight training days to 5 this week and continue that for as long as I can (it may only last a few weeks!). I was pretty chill and patient the first part of my pregnancy with my changing body but now as this baby gets heavier and is interfering with my leg days, I want it OUTTA here! It's going to be fun to see how my training throughout this pregnancy will effect my recovery this time around!

#babybumpsandbootyshorts & back squats + terrible camera angles during #naptime.
It doesn’t always have to be complicated. Sometimes you just need to squat a weight that you know you can move well. A weight that your body can just do its thing with. Something that doesn’t require a lot of thought.

Today was one of those workouts where it was the ultimate “what do I even do” question. All relatively simple movements in the workout as written, but all movements that many pregnant & postpartum athletes have put aside for some time.
A 2k or ten minute row is a good option for the run. Your row technique will be different than pre pregnancy with less of that lean back on the pull. Exhale on exertion to help with core & PF considerations.
The airbike is pretty standard, don’t all out sprint, just get some time on the bike at a pace you can hold steady.
Single arm kettle bell swings- keep ribs stacked over hips. You should be hinting at the hips and swinging the bell up to eye level or just below. The single arm movement adds the challenge of not twisting or compensating for an unbalanced load. Choose a lighter weight KB than you would for standard swings, and switch arms as needed splitting the reps equally between right & left.
Some other options would be: farmers carry, regular KBSwings, lower rep palloff press, KB marches, or slam balls.

This weeks Pregnancy & Posterior workout is minimal equipment, requiring only 2 kettlebells & an optional band. At less than 15 min, this is a great at home workout too.
Every minute on the minute for 10
Minutes alternating 50m of farmers carry with a KB or DB in each hand and 15-25 Russian kettlebell swings. Both exercises should leave you with a minimum of 20sec rest. Scale the weight, distance, or reps as needed to achieve this.
This isn’t about speed, but about form and quality. We’re looking for a slight forward lean with the farmers carry, head up, eyes looking straight ahead. With the KB swings, work on hinging at the hips to initiate the swing and opening up to a neutral position while swinging the KB to about eye level. Ideally using a weight where you can do all reps unbroken.
After the EMOM give yourself 1-2 min rest, and then go into 50 banded good mornings. Don’t rush the movement, but try to do in 1-3 sets.
Again, these are a hinge and the movement will be felt in the glutes and hamstrings. As you hinge there should be a slight bend in the knees and a nice straight back. Again, at the top of the movement you should be at neutral or slightly forward of that. Be careful of not over extending or tucking your pelvis. If you’re new to good mornings put the band aside and do them with your hands behind your head in prisoner position.

This weeks Pregnancy & Posterior workout is minimal equipment, requiring only 2 kettlebells & an optional band. At less than 15 min, this is a great at home workout too.

Barbell snatches, a movement a lot of moms have put aside during their second half of pregnancy, yet a movement that is commonly programmed as weekly strength work.
Today’s strength work is a barbell complex, while some may substitute the barbell for a KB or DB to get the complex in, there is plenty of time for that in the wod and I prefer to get barbell work in where I can.
Snatch Grip Deadlift: setup just like a regular barbell snatch, starting with the bar close to your shins, chest up, and a wide grip utilizing the hookgrip. As you lift the bar keep your hips and shoulders rising at the same time until above the knees, pulling your knees back, keeping shoulders over the bar and pulling it close to you. You should feel the tension in your hamstrings. You can either fully extend or stop just before in the position where you would begin barbell contact should you be doing a full snatch, but not over extending or “popping” the barbell into that snatch pull position. Retrace the same bar path going down.
Between each rep take the extra second to setup correctly, dropping your hips to your snatch start position rather than a higher standard deadlift start.
Choose a weight you can do all 3 reps at and hold for 5 rounds. It should not be maximal effort lifts. Focus on form and maintaining the hookgrip.
This is a great exercise for both posterior chain as well as your upper back muscles.
For the KB/DB power snatches: choose a weight you can easily do 3-5 reps unbroken each side. You are doing both sides in the same minute. Start from the hang or uses low box to start from a block.
If overhead movements are out, substitute the power snatches for goblet squats, landmine squats, or kettlebell swings.

Team workouts. For me, that’s when athlete brain can reach it’s peak or when my motivation to step into the gym goes to an all time low.
Part of the fun of CrossFit is shared suffering. The camaraderie that comes out of putting in the hard work, sweating together, pushing each other a little farther is some of what builds the community.
It’s easy to modify a workout when it’s just you. But when it means your teammates might have to do a little extra, it gets hard. The easy thing would be to run for just this one workout. Or to do your own solo workout in the corner. Or just not show up.
Thursday I considered all these options even though I know better. When teams were being assembled and I threw out to the coach that I’m no longer running and someone chimed in with “what? Like at all?”. That’s correct. I’m not running. Not now, not for the next 6-9 months. Maybe longer. My stomach churned a little, I got flustered. A little embarrassed. Nope. I’m not running.
This is the time to #practicebrave. To dare to be different. To shut that athlete brain down.
I ended up on the assault bike while my two teammates shared work meant for three.
It was all fine. Sure they carried that portion of the workout, but maybe I had a little more umph on the backsquats. At the end of the day, it was all fine. I stuck to my plan, we did the workout, high fives were given.

The most boring exercise that can be done almost anywhere, and that I should really do more often. During pregnancy you may have a tendency to round your upper back more than usual, and this is a great exercise to work some of those fatigued muscles.
Pregnant moms, nursing moms, people who travel a lot or sit at a desk often could all benefit from doing this routine.
Lay on your back, there may be slight space between the floor and your lower back and slowly slide the back of your hands straight overhead aiming to keep hands and elbows in contact with the ground. If ribs start flaring or you have an excessive back arch, only go to a distance where this doesn’t occur.
This can also be done standing with your back against a wall.
Don’t rush or force the movement, go nice and slow. Try adding 3 sets of 10 reps into your warmup, cool down, or when you’re just collapsed on the playroom floor 2-3 times a week.

Ever have a day where you’re just in a mood, and all you want to do is put on your running shoes and hit the road for a few miles? Then you remember you’re six months pregnant and that’s just not in the cards right now.
Yeah, I’ve had a few of those lately.
I don’t know when I’ll be ready to run again. My goal isn’t to run a 5k X months postpartum, or be back to a certain pace. I do have goals to run again, they’re just very broad and in the “someday” realm. My goals are to run when my body is ready. After I’ve put in the rehab and recovery work.
Running seems really far away. But for now, I’ll just take a deep breath, put on my running shoes, load a toddler into the stroller and go for a nice long walk with our dog. That’s enough for me for now.

If you’ve put overhead movements on the blacklist, seeing this on the whiteboard can be discouraging. But really, there are so many options.
I love jerks, they’re a full body movement and a blend of core strength & stabilization + leg power. Luckily, there are tons of ways we can train this as well while keeping pregnancy considerations in mind.
Instead of sitting on the sidelines warmup with the class. Use an empty barbell, PVC pipe, or even empty hands and go through your classes warmup while keeping in mind alignment and pressure management.
When everyone breaks off to work up in weight, give yourself this emom to do.
The front rack carry can be done with double or single kB. Pick a distance that leaves you with about 30sec of rest each round. Remember to breathe throughout the carry.
Keep weight in heels for the goblet squat, moving your hips back and then down. This is an opportunity to work on different breathing techniques with either breathing throughout the movement, or inhaling down and exhaling on exertion. Again, you’re looking for at least 30sec of rest here.
This is such a practical movement for moms, as there is always someone or something that needs to be in your arms.

Day date in the driveway 😂 (everyone does that, right?) The husband let me write the workout, so I picked three movements I love, and one I avoid 🚣
Set the clock for 30 min, partner A kicks off with a 500m row, meanwhile B does an AMRAP of 5 kettlebell swings, 10 pushups, 25 walking lunges. Once the rower is finished, swap places. Aim for consistency in the AMRAP rounds, and row pace.
Sleeping puppy is optional, but cute.
Pick a medium weight kettlebell, modify pushups as needed, substitutes for walking lunges could be reverse lunges, air squats, or squats to a med ball/bench.

Hey Mama.
I see you.
I see you on the assault bike while everyone else heads out for a run.
I see you in the back of the gym doing deadlifts while everyone else does cleans.
I see you working with dumbbells while everyone else does handstand push-ups.
I see you doing ring rows while everyone else is on butterfly pull-ups.
I see you back on that assault bike while everyone else crushes double unders.
I see you focusing on breathing and staying intentional while everyone else goes for a backsquat PR.
I see you taking a 10 second break while everyone else powers through the rest of the workout.
I see you because I was you and I am you.
And we’re all in this together. 👊🏻

#week30 is ending!! I decided to have a nice photo shoot on the boat and didn’t realize the anchor didn’t catch...once mom got to the boat we had to go rescue our guys haha😅 lessons learned during family adventures!
It was warm but being able to party in the water is nice and my fCe is getting real tan! This week also brought time working at universal, crazy dreams, a lot more intense kicking from Lily, lots of puppy play time, and not a lot of time at home.
I’m so glad to have such a supportive crew at work, at home, and in our virtual bootcamp and am so excited for tomorrow’s workout featuring more new shorts!! Clearance clothing finds that I’m comfortable in at this stage?! Priceless💗

Making my workout photo collage today... I got teary eyed😭
You’ve heard me talk about how beachbody has hundreds of workouts with meal plans and even a cooking show. You’ve heard me talk about how they have several prenatal workouts for throughout pregnancy, and even that the yoga makes me cry.
I love being able to have personalized attention and detail from a trainer who’s had kids and can tell me how to adjust to help support my changed shape. I love being able to work out with someone else in their third trimester who talks about how hard it is. I love being able to do these moves without modifications💗💪 Today was the first day I was able to hold plank for thirty seconds without modifying in a long time.
Doing the right workout for your ability and skill set makes a huge difference in performance and mental clarity.
Thank you beachbody for offering something that pregnant people can follow so well💗💗 I’m so glad I said yes to my first virtual bootcamp and so glad I said yes to trying something new every time i try a new workout.
It’s a learning experience, it is no longer conquering the world or crushing defeat. It is me time. Me and Lily time💗😭🙌🙏 #thirdtrimesterworkouts #prenatalworkouts #workingoutwithautumncalabrese #momworksout #makinglilyproud #makingmyselfstronger #preppingforbaby #28weeks #icandoanythingfor10seconds #icandoanythingfor30seconds #strongandpregnant #strongforlabor #strongforbaby #premedprep #studying #myheroacademia #breaktime #livefiercelylivebeautifully #lovemybump #lovemylilygirl

I have been making it a personal goal to get some form of exercise each day. Most days I can get my 3 mile walk and a strength training session in. Other days it’s one or the other and some days it’s laying on the couch. Once this belly started growing I needed some extra help, enter what I have deemed as my belly bra! It’s actual name is ProBump Support Band by @baobeimaternity Whatever it’s called it has made my workouts much more bearable. Keeps my belly and my back feeling supported. Basically I love it and wanted to share with any other pregnant women still working out bare belly😉. Bralette is also by @baobeimaternity and will allow me to nurse without taking off my sports bra. And still proud to say I fit in my @lululemon align shorts, hoping I can make them work for another 7 weeks with this massive belly. #33weekspregnant #thirdtrimesterfitness #thirdtrimesterworkouts #tiupregnancy #maternityfitness #maternitywear #maternitystyle #activepregnancy #pregnancyfitness

1 thing I’ve learned being a mama, you gotta take care of YOU before you can fully take care of anyone else!

So take the 30 minutes for you mama because we all know you’re taking care of everyone else so now it’s time to take care of YOU!

SAVE THIS THIRD TRIMESTER ALL BODY WORKOUT!! As you can see, i am extremely pregnant in this video! 😂 below are a few things to remember when working out at this stage of pregnancy 😊
.
☆NEVER REST ON YOUR BACK BETWEEN EXERCISES
.
☆Take regular breaks and make sure you are not out of breath!
.
☆Drink plenty of water before, during and after exercising
.
☆If any movement causes pain or simply dosnt feel right, discontinue that exercise
.
At this stage, the purpose of exercising is purely to improve circulation, relieve any aches and pains and keep muscles working and activated. It can also help relieve stress and improve sleeping. Movements should be SLOW and CONTROLLED. 🤰🤰🏻🤰🏼🤰🏽🤰🏿
Try 3 or 4 rounds of 8-10 reps of each.
Hope this was helpful! 😊

Cam 👶🏽 & my body definitely let’s me know what I can do & what I shouldn’t do. It’s pretty cool finding a new awareness within & being able to tune into what my body/her body needs.

#39weekspregnant and the doctor told me yesterday that if i keep working out like this the baby is gonna “fly” out of me in 10 minutes 😂 wouldn’t that be nice! 💪🏻 luckily I’ve been feeling good enough to keep moving. I’m rotating between classes at @renaissancethestudioredbank , 30-min walks, at-home workouts thanks to @kayla_itsines and of course break days whenever my energy is low or just not feeling up to it. I’ve been retaining a lot of water...i gained 3 lbs in the last week! yes...i got back on the scale when the doc left the room bc i couldn’t believe it! 😵 but he said it’s water retention and that’s what’s causing my 🖐🏻s to hurt so much in my sleep bc they’re swelling when I lay down, i can’t even open and close them...the only temporary relief I’ve found is running them under ice cold water when i wake up to pee (x3) ...anyone else deal with this?! Some days i wake up thinking i don’t want to work out but then get a burst of energy later in the day and even if it’s just a slow walk, it helps me feel better 😊

Today i tried out some new deadlift variations. As my belly grows I am changing and adapting all the time. 🤰
.
.
Right now I can’t reach the depth of my deadlifts that I was able to pre-pregnancy, so I utilize blocks to raise the starting position and ending position. 👌
.
.
1️⃣Band activated Landmine Bar Deadlifts (front facing)- this exercise was amazing to challenge my anterior core and shoulder stability. I have some work to do in my hands and forearms that will help better my grip and shoulder position. I have been neglecting my poor hands! You can use a small plate as well in the front to use to grip if need be👍
.
.
2️⃣Landmine Offset Front Facing Deadlift. O man, this exercise challenged my lateral and rotary core in a big way🙌 .
.
Now that my focus is not on lifting heavy with the goal of hypertrophy, or max strength and power, but on maintaining functionality and muscular endurance, I super setted both exercises with 1- band walks in the first set and 2-banded back extensions with more of a tucked upper body (not coming up all the way to neutral) working my glutes rather than coming up to neutral and working more on my back. .
.
I promise some day I will show more upper body I do, it’s just a little more boring to watch! 🤣🤣🤣

These are some of the exercises and stretches I’ve done lately, the only ones I’ve added were with 10 lb weights just simple arm workouts with weights. ..
First I did Lower/upper Back stretches , lower/upper leg stretches, hip stretches, shoulder/arm stretches & neck stretch/ rolls.
..
The I got into some 🦵workouts and gluteus maximums workouts. Donkey kicks, lunges, glute bridges, kick backs,fire hydrants , squats & squats with basic side leg lifts.
..
Modified Push ups. Bicep curls with 10 lb weight each arm, along with over head punches each arm, sitting one hand arm rows each arm, & upright dumbbell squeeze press chest exercise with the one dumbbell can be done with two and can be done lying flat on back on a bench.
..
Each video is sped up so it may seem like over exertion lol but I’m actually going slow the entire workout while being cautious... it took 1hour and 30 minutes because I didn’t start recording until I was on my last set. ..
I never record my full sets which are usually 3 in total per workout and about 8-12 reps per set. Nothing hard or strenuous and I made sure I took breaks and stayed hydrated. And breathed through each set which is a major 🔑! I’m used to working out a lot and doing way more and at faster pace but being pregnant slows my workouts down which isn’t a problem but certain workouts I can’t do and refrain from because they are simply too strenuous for me. I only pick and stick to the workouts that work best for me and my body during my pregnancy.🤰🏽

Have you 'FALLEN OFF THE WAGON?!'
First off, what IS falling off the wagon?! I firmly believe if you are passionate about creating a healthy lifestyle you will take action everyday to make small changes to create healthier habits.🍊
.
Is it always easy? NO! Absolutely not!
I think the reason people 'fall off the wagon' is because they TRY ALL THE THINGS.🤯
.
They are choosing ALL THE THINGS that everyone else is doing instead of focusing on the changes that need to be made in THEIR LIFE. We are ALL different; we all have shit going on, we all have families, events, sports, work, kids etc...but you MUST continue to take steps forward each day.👇🏻
.
Don't buy the ice-cream if you KNOW it is a weak point for you. Out of sight out of mind right?!🙈
.
START SMALL
.
I ALWAYS tell my clients to 'get back on the wagon' start with a healthy fulfilling breakfast. I personally enjoy my superfood smoothie🌱 because it has the perfect combo of protein, fats, fiber, veggies & nutrients to sustain me first thing. When I start my day off on a good step I'm more willing to keep that momentum going.
.
Many complain that smoothies are a waste of time or too much money. Are you REALLY ready to make a change then? Too much money? What are you eating otherwise?!🤔
.
P.S. I have an accountability group running right now if you need some motivation and support! ANYONE can join us--Only requirement is you have a PLAN OF ACTION. You can trial a FREE 14 days of Home workouts OR if you are pregnant/postpartum I have some FREE workouts I can send you to trial out. 🙌🏻
Drop a 🏋🏽‍♀️below if you'd like some more details!

tips for hiking @ #35weekspregnant 👉🏻 use a stick for back support, especially for the upward inclines. Bry made me use it and it really helped take pressure off the lower back. Keep the hike around 30 min. This is how long my walks usually are and the point where my 🦶🏻start to hurt. I actually felt so good being out in the ☀️ and fresh air and like I could keep going but 🖐🏻s were swelling a little so didn’t want to push it. Choose an easier trail, bring water 💦 & get off your 🦶🏻 after when you get home! 😊 #mpgsport @mpgsport

It’s still winter and I’m finished work so today I worked out at home.
I needed a chair to help me balance,
I pressed pause twice,
I threw the damn loops across the room.
BUT I got it done and I feel the best I’ve felt in a while.

Excuse, how many do you have?? I can come up with at least 1 million that don’t even have to do with this bump right here!! But you know what’s even more important than my excuses?? My REASON to be doing all this!! This little (🤣) bump right and my 2.5 year old #terddler are my reason!! We talked a lot about this in my training yesterday. Really diving into your reason so on the days you have 1 million excuses you still get up and push!! I want to see these 2 grow up and get married and watch their children grow (should that be the path they choose) and be able to chase them around and play for hours!! That’s my reason, I want to live a long, full healthy life for them and the generations that come after them!! Is your REASON more important than your EXCUSE?? #myreasonisimportant #betterthanmyexcuses #thisbumprighthere #babybump2019 #soontobemomof2👦👶 #boymomsoontobegirlmomtoo #thirdtrimesterfitness #thirdtrimesterworkouts #babygirl🎀 #thirdtrimesterfeelstoday

GETTING ACHES AND PAINS IN YOUR HIPS, PELVIS OR LOWER BACK?
Try these 4 stretches that target hamstrings, glutes and hip flexors! Sometimes tight muscles in one area can cause pain in another. For example tight lower body can cause lower back pain. And you may not even realise your muscles are tight!
Try and stretch regularly as it is not only relieving but helps to prevent injury and is also a great way to wind down from a stressful or tiring day! 😊💆🏼‍♀️
.
Hold each stretch for atleast 30 seconds and repeat if you feel the need.

I can honestly say that my weight loss thus far has come down to: pumping tons of milk (burning anywhere from 380-600 calories a day solely from that) and stress 🤷‍♀️
But I do have to give myself some credit! Although I have had my fair share of dark chocolate and yummy coffee drinks- I’ve ALSO chosen salads for lots of meals instead of other options.
Eating healthy while staying 20 days in the hospital with your baby and going back and forth is NOT easy.
But I tried my darnedest. And have continued to do so since being home.
.
I can pretty much say that I’ve lost my baby weight, but I hate even saying that because my body is so far from what it was (understandably mushy). I cannot wait to start workouts again and start seeing my strong come back! It takes a lot of freakin hard work but I’m ready. .
I’ve made myself wait to start working out again until the 1st Monday in February and I’m DANG excited. Curious about which program I’ll be doing? 😉 I’ll be running a group if you want in, but I’ll only be taking a few ladies who are really serious about committing.
