Happy Sunday, yall! How is it going? We are HALFWAY through Whole30, and I am hoping you guys are feeling AH-MAZING. We have passed the point of no return, should be getting in our groove, and starting to get used to the diet changes. Over the past two weeks, I have provided you with Whole30 Tips + Resources and a guide on completing Whole30 While Pregnant. I also shared an Easy Whole30 Breakfast Casserole and a Whole30 Trader Joe’s Shopping List from My Life Well Loved and the Pros and Cons of Whole30 and an Easy, Delish Whole30 Snack Idea from Happily Hughes. This week, I am changing things up a tad. I get so many questions about what types of workouts I do. I wanted to share a quick in-home workout with a few pregnancy modifications. You can complete this workout at home, on the road, or at your local gym! Keep reading for a fun YouTube video, the details of the workout, and an AMAZING giveaway ($500 Nordstrom giftcard) to purchase new workout clothes.
Do You Need Pregnancy Modifications for Your In-Home Workout?
This workout consists of 3 mini-workouts, utilizing IronTribe, barre, and bodyweight techniques. The great thing about this workout is you can complete all 3 blocks together to create one workout OR break them up into 3 separate workouts, completing 3 rounds of each block instead of 1 round of all 3 blocks (hopefully that makes sense). In the workouts, Heather is going full out, and I am providing some pregnancy modifications for each exercise. As always, please consult your physician and/or trainer before starting any new workout routine.
