My Favorite {Yet SAFE} First Trimester Pregnancy Workouts

October 9, 2015

I have been working out way before I knew I was pregnant with my second baby. And to be honest, nothing has really changed lately. I have upped my cardio by 10 minutes, but other than that, my routine is the same! You have asked me what are some of my favorite yet safe first trimester workouts and I am so excited to share a few!

Here are four of my favorite, safe workouts to do during the first trimester:

Warm up

To warm up my muscles and to prepare for weight training, I always do 30 minutes of cardio, five days a week on my incline trainer. I always mix up the inclines, but I have not been going over 15% at 3mph just to be on the safer side. I will increase my incline during the second trimester as my body feels comfortable.


The Workout

Barbell Squats




Side Planks


Dumbbell Curls


Cool Down

Light stretching or yoga to release any tight muscles and to relieve the muscles that have been worked.


I will be posting my actual prenatal workout schedule soon for the First Trimester of Pregnancy so stay tuned!


Workout plan? I may be able to make it through half the cardio right now.:
