I am so excited to finally launch our Rockin’ Mama FIT series. A couple of weeks ago we hopped in the studio to film a 20 min prenatal fitness video, a 20 minute prenatal yoga video and three FIT circuits. But I can’t wait for them to be finished in editing…so I’m releasing my first series of FIT circuits!
I wanted to design a program for mamas that was effective, challenging AND that you can FIT into your schedule!!!
While I’m currently very clearly pregnant, and all these exercises are safe for active mamas in all trimesters, they are also great for anyone who just wants to fit a quick total body workout into their busy life.
Here’s how it works:
Each circuit contains 4 exercises (lower body, upper body, cardio and core).
Do each of the four exercises for 1 minute. Rest for 1 minute. Repeat the entire circuit 2-3 more times depending on what you can FIT in.
You can do your circuits all at once or do a 5 minute quickie as many times as you can FIT in throughout the day.
Exercise #1. Curtsy Lunge
Exercise #2: Down dog into Triceps Push-up (option to do on knees or full push up)
Exercise #3: Boat Pose (option to modify by keeping legs down and/or hands behind thighs)
Exercise #4: Alternating Leg Lifts in Attitude
