Hope you are having a great week! Since my second trimester hit I’ve been continuing to work out during pregnancy. It has helped me so much physically and mentally with my pregnancy. For two weeks during Christmas and New Years I was feeling under the weather so I didn’t work out and boy did my body feel it. After the first week I was getting horrible back pains. I know it’s normal as our body grows and stretches, but I also knew I could help alleviate it if I went back to my normal exercise routine. After I was feeling better I started working out again and focusing on lower body workouts and it helped tremendously. Since then my back pain has gone away! You can see the full video of my lower back workouts here. Below I’ve listed my top five reasons on why I continue to workout during pregnancy and how beneficial it is in your pregnancy. Check them out below!
