#pregnancyworkouts for Week 34 (6 more weeks to go!). This is #workout no. 7. This #baby is definitely an active one, I can tell. It will start moving/kicking when I’m resting but when I’m exercising, the baby moves less (I like to think the movements mommy is doing is soothing for baby). I also have incorporated a lot of squats (sumo & deep) as it is considered the most effective #birthing position. Some benefits if #squats in #pregnancy:
1) shortens second stage of labour (pushing phase)
2) reduces the need for forceps or vacuum deliveries & episiotomy.
3) relieves back pressure
4) shortens the depth of your birth canal.
5) works with gravity! Squatting also tilts the uterus and pelvis forward, which places the baby in proper #birth alignment.
Here are the exercises:
1) tricep dips on bench- 10reps
2) sumo squats- 10reps
3) plank to push up combo (knee on ground)- 10reps.

Please help #sharethis post to other #mommies to be. Thanks!

Here is #workout no. 2 for #pregnancyworkoutseries. I am in my 29th week this week and boy do I feel this weight. It’s like carrying a constant extra 25lbs of weight around. Nonetheless, I’m still determined to keep myself active. Here’s the breakdown:
1) Push up on bench- 10reps x 3
2) Dynamic lateral squats- 10reps/side x 3
3) Alternate arm and leg extension in table top- 10reps/side x 3
Remember to always listen to your body, do what you can. If you have any questions regarding pre/post natal exercise, ask away!

Follow me for the next 10 weeks for a Pregnancy Workout Series. So I have just entered my #thirdtrimester last Friday! If you are #pregnant and would to workout with me, make sure that you have doctor’s clearance. I have been working out throughout my pregnancy (except maybe those weeks of morning sickness) and have always been an active person, so I usually listen to my body when it comes to whether to push myself or not. Here is the breakdown of all 3 exercises:
1) Step-up 10reps/side x 3 sets
2) Low Row with resistance band 10reps x 3 sets
3) Forearm plank hold 30secs x 3

Please like, share & comment! Thanks!

Awesome #first #mothersday . Started the day with a delicious #brunch of super green pancakes, potato hash and eggs made by @xodusfitnesssf . Got a cute card from my mom/dad-in-law and we ended the day seeing “Much Ado about Nothing” at African American Shakespeare Theatre company. Feeling blessed. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas and soon-to-be mamas.
