I’ve purchased a few exercise programs and joined some group classes, but some of my favourite prenatal workouts are videos you can find free online.
Here’s my list:
- Tracy Anderson Arm Workout – 5 minutes
This one isn’t specifically for prenatal, but it’s all upper body strength and no weights are involved, so I deem it pretty safe. It’s only 5 minutes and isn’t professionally filmed but I like it because I LOVE the song and my arms kill afterwards.
- FitSugar’s Leg and Butt Workout – 10 minutes
I like this one because Sophia Ruiz isn’t one of those chirpy, annoying fitness video trainers.
- FitSugar’s Arm Workout – 10 minutes
I have an exercise ball and some dumbbells, plus this is another Sophia Ruiz video, so it works perfectly for me.
- FitSugar’s Heidi Klum Prenatal Workout – 11 minutes
This is a good total body workout. It has a bit of cardio, a bit of strength training and a bit of core work — all in 11 minutes.
- Lizbeth Garcia Prenatal Pilates for Flexibility – 10 minutes
This YouTube video is actually about 50 minutes because it includes all five 10-minute parts of the Prenatal Pilates series. Pilates for Flexibility starts at 44:13.
Add a bit of outdoor walking and you’re all set up for a good prenatal exercise program, without paying a dime!
