Workout from a couple weeks ago . Who likes to workout in the morning?
Benefits of working out in the morning are better energy and mood throughout the day
people who tend to exercise in the morning tend to have better sleep and more efficient cycles deeper, more anabolic stage sleep 25% drop in blood pressure in evenings, turning off the fight or flight response
I personally love morning workouts as it sets up the entire day for me, but that doesn’t mean I won’t work out at night if I missed a workout or didn’t have time
Being pregnant can be hard with working out, for me, because I like go all or nothing. I had to modify a lot of things like pull ups and push ups due to my belly coning. I’ve been doing more ab vacuum exercises which bore the hell out of me but I’m trying to take the advice I give others. I promise I’ll be posting more on diastasis recti and proper core movements for it when I get the chance
Lately I’ve been only getting to the gym 2x a week so I’ve been doing full body workouts. My strength is still there other than me getting out of breath over the simplest movements and having to modify. It’s hard for me to modify to be honest, but I know after this baby I can hit it full force and take my strength up a whole other level
The sets and reps I did were
1️⃣overhead hold with med ball with leg extensions 3x12
2️⃣alternating push up on ball 3x8
3️⃣standing side tricep fly (no fucking clue what they’re called I just did them and liked them 🤣) 3x15
4️⃣modified SL deadlift, brace your core 4x10 R&L side
5️⃣Elevates sumo squat for that deeper range of motion 3x12
6️⃣SL curtsy lunge 3x12 R&L
7️⃣Single leg quad extension with pause 3x12 R&L doing a burnout of reg quad ext light weight until failure
I’m not following any programs although I have one I’m working on for Postpartum Mamas 🥰 I just go into the gym and roll with it, trying to always do push/pull motions and working on single leg/arm movements to even put the weak side. Let me know if you like these videos or not!
PS anyone else love working out barefoot? If I could I’d never wear shoes again! Lol - 8 hours ago
