Weightlifting Workout for the Pregnant Booty
It’s no secret that I am crazy about lifting weights. I have lifted weights prior to my pregnancy so it was only natural for me to continue to do so. One of my favorite body parts to work during pregnancy while using weights is my boo-tay!
Why? Well, those lovely pregnancy and postpartum hormones love to take away your booty. I am serious! After I gave birth, it was like my booty ran off and disappeared. I think breastfeeding was the main culprit there (and lack of squatting) so I was strictly determined to NOT let that happen again by creating a firm foundation prior to this second pregnancy and maintaining it all the way through.
Here are my 5 favorite moves for working your glutes-with weights-during pregnancy:
Ball Hip Thrusts w/Dumbbell
Sumo Squats w/Dumbbell
