It’s time to start a new workout week! This is a workout that is perfect for me right now, because it is pregnancy safe. I am in the end stages of my pregnancy (39 weeks + 5 days pregnant today!) Baby Bender could decide to debut at any time.
Standing workouts are great because you don’t have to get down on the floor at all. In this one I do use a chair to step up on, but if you don’t have a chair a step or bench will do. You can also modify and do a Lunge with Leg Lift instead if you don’t have equipment.
In this workout I don’t use any added resistance, but if you want to increase the intensity you can do so by adding dumbbells. It’s a great way to increase the burn!

I am working on a Pregnancy Update post to let you all know what I have been doing, and how I’ve been feeling. You can check back for that a little bit later. I will share the link on my Facebook & Instagram pages.
Have fun with today’s workout!
