Round Butt, Strong Legs: 20 Minutes Per Round: Second Trimester Workout

Standard
Please follow and like us:

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re ready for a new workout! Today’s workout is all about the lower body. For this workout you will need a chair or a bench. I use a dumbbell in this workout, but that is optional. You can also choose to do bodyweight only. I like adding weights, because it increases the challenge of the workout, and helps you to achieve results more quickly.

I filmed this workout as a HIIT interval workout, but you can also do it for Reps if that is your preference. The breakdown for both is below. If you’re feeling up to it you can even try a round of each. Let me know which style you prefer and which you find more challenging.

I am just shy of 22-weeks pregnant now (over 5 months!), and my baby bump has really popped out! It was strange seeing myself on video. I asked Jesse if my bump was really that big. It seems to look so much smaller when I see myself in clothing or the mirror. It’s interesting to see how much your body changes during pregnancy. I feel great, healthy and strong. Baby Bender seems to be popping out more. He is also super active. Either he already loves Burpees or he is an acrobat in training. Sometimes he kicks or flips so hard that it makes me jump!

I hope you enjoy today’s workout!
Melissa

    Perfect for me today…10 weeks pregnant and not feeling great. I’ve be doing your workouts since right after I had my first child 4 years ago! Thank you!

  2. LOVED IT!! I have been waiting for you to post new workouts. I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant and I have just been modifying older workouts. I was able to complete this entire workout with no modifications. I did two rounds. GREAT WORKOUT! THANK YOU!!

    Love seeing your baby bump! Show it off girl! Someday Baby Bender will be able to watch videos of you working out with him in your belly. I am amazed that you are able to do high knees…obviously your Dr. gave you the green light for them. I am 7 weeks (with my fourth) and still continuing to do your workouts with lower impact cardio modifications. Keep posting workouts…I love them!

    22 weeks here as well and loved this workout. This is #6 for me so my body is a little more fragile than it used to be but I would love to see more workouts for us pregnant ladies! Thank you Melissa!
