Happy Friday! It's been a while since I've posted a "Fitter in a Minute" segment! Today's goes along with my baby-themed week as a perfect pre-natal strength exercise, but really is awesome for ANYONE!! It gets tough to film yourself as your body is changing but I'm taking one for the team today to demonstrate these rotating squats!When I was running more, I used these as a dynamic warm-up. It's helpful to activate the glute muscles before heading out on a run! I also love to do these as a part of a strength circuit. I've been doing them a lot in the second trimester, as I've been dealing with some lower back pain. I've found doing glute and hip exercises has really helped stabilize my back and decreased my pain. Staying active in general really helps me feel better, so it's great to find pregnancy friendly exercises that I love!
why i love this move
Yikes! Filming yourself at 28 weeks pregnant is a little nerve-racking!
