Pregnancy Exercises : How to Tone Your Arms & Upper Chest During Pregnancy

Now that you're pregnant, We're going to look at how we can keep our upper body nice and toned during our pregnancy Hi everyone

I'm Carol Ann with Studio Group X, and we're going to talk about how to keep your arms and your chest toned during pregnancy Now the first thing that you want to keep in mind is, there is no need to lift heavy weights during your pregnancy Tubing gives you plenty of resistance when you're working out So when you're thinking about upper body, let's focus on our biceps, triceps, shoulders, and then, of course, our chest So a great exercise that you can do for your biceps; using the tubing, just step on the tubing, soften your knees, keep your elbows in to your sides, and just lift those arms up and down

Now when you're doing bicep curls, exhale on the exertion, inhale as you relax And this is great for those biceps Another exercise for the upper body, triceps So take the tubing, take the handle, and grab some of the tubing And you're going to create your own resistance

You can choke up on that tubing as much as you can Keep that elbow next to your head And extend up and down So those are triceps Now for the shoulders, grab the tubing and place it underneath your arms

And then just press up and lower down Now you want to make sure that when you're doing shoulder presses that your hands are slightly more forward than your head, not directly overhead, just to protect those shoulder joints Nice Next, to work the chest, you can do simple push-ups So you're going to come down on your knees

Lift your feet up Your hands are separated nice and wide, so that when you lower down, your elbows are at 90 degrees, and up Now when you get pretty much into your pregnancy; in the third trimester; this may become a little bit more challenging for you If that's the case, then you can bring your knees underneath your hips and then just kind of bow down and push up And that's going to strengthen those chest muscles

So those are some great exercises that you can do for your upper body and your chest, your arms and your chest And you want to do those exercises, oh about 20 reps, three sets And I'm Carol Ann with Studio Group X, and that is how you're going to work your arms and your chest
