Playground Workout

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

This was my first time working out in over a month due to having pneumonia! A really weird case of pneumonia, I never felt sick once, just had lots of fluid in my lungs that took over a month to clear up! I am so glad to finally get back to my workout routine. I plan to share as many workouts as I can throughout my pregnancy & log them by trimester so all of you mommas to be can reference back & use them as you progress in your pregnancy. Remember to consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen, and always listen to your body. If you need to stop or slow down DO IT, pregnancy is not a time in your life to push your body to the limit. 

During this workout I was able to target all of the major muscle groups in my arms & legs & include some cardio as well. It took me 30 minutes to complete this workout & I burned a little over 400 calories. 

Next I am going to break it down by circuit into videos so that you can have references on how to perform each exercise in the circuit. Each circuit it 90 reps & I chose to break it up by doing 10 of each exercise & then repeating the 3 exercises within the circuit 3 times. However, if you prefer to knock out one exercise at a time go for it, just make sure you fully complete one circuit before going to the next. 

Oh and I apologize for the awkward sound, I didn't add any music to these, I was being lazy, but I will be adding music in the future. And if you hear a kid screaming in the background that would be my neighbor's kid. I promise I would not just ignore my daughter screaming, her & our dog were happily playing the entire time & I think you do catch her on the videos a time or two. 

Circuit One
Incline push-ups
Body weight squats
Mountain climbers

Circuit Two
Walking lunges 
Toe taps

Circuit Three 
Bicep curls 
Pistol squats
Step ups

Circuit Four
Tricep extensions 
Elevated side squats 
1-2-3 Heisman

Alright ladies, this was my first attempt at sharing a video workout with you all. Let me know what you think! Was it helpful? Were they too long? Was the break down weird? Was it easy to follow? Tips are appreciated so that I can make them better in the future. Also I realize that I was cut off a few times & I apologize, but I am assuming you can catch on to what I am doing. I was using Kirby's highchair as a tripod for my iPhone, so hopefully they get better as I do more. Thanks for following!
