Transcript for Fitness Tips for Moms-to-Be
? Now to our "Baby oh! Baby" series and this morning it's fitness during pregnancy. We headed to one Riverside park to prove you can move through every trimester. My prepregnancy workouts were no joke. But as soon as I found out I was boxing for two, this is the second person I told. My trainer. Mark has kept me moving safely through every trimester. Which meant adding a heart monitor to my workout. Being pregnant changed everything in a day. Right. Right. Even things like going upstairs for you all of a sudden you were a little more winded so we needed to monitor it. Very important to keep the heart rate around 140, 145. Reporter: Now that I'm watching my heart rate I can pretty much do anything with a few modification. Doing jump squats so instead of that we do a static ground inversion. In fact, working out a lot during pregnancy is just what the doctor ordered. I'm also following a few pregnancy fitness rules. Don't overheat. Stay cool even during exercise. Avoid laying on your back because that could reduce blood flow to the uterus and subsequently the baby. Avoid high risk exercises or sports where there is a risk of falling. I may not be waterskiing until after baby, but I can still box. There you go. And we are joined by certified pre and postnatal pregnancy Nikki Kimbrough with moves that every move can do through the first through third trimester. They have their feet apart and ladies are coming up, taking it all the way up. What I love about this exercise you're strengthening the lower body and upper body at the same time. Ladies, you keep doing that, you get one of these. Yeah. My friend Sara Haines leading the second trimester friends, second try in Esther, a new rule. No more exercises on your back. You put so much pressure on the vina kava. You put pressure on that it reduces blood flow to the baby. Keep it going, ladies. Keep it going. With the third trimester you're like, okay, here we go now. Legs tight, backs tight, your joints are getting bigger. I need to do something more low impact. Get a yoga take or take a prenatal yoga class. Mountain pose and then we'll do a nice easy tree pose. Come right here, bring the hand right here. Look at ginger showing off bringing it up a little bit higher. Now we'll come down. Nikki, thanks so much. Thank you all for being here. We'd like to thank ddrops and check out these workout tips. Follow me on my pregnancy journey on my blog at on Yahoo! ? I like it ?
