Short Pregnancy Workout with Kettlebells and Body Weight

Under 20 minutes and felt perfect! 4 months pregnant and feeling good after this workout.

Joint Mobility Warm Up

Body Weight Back Lunges to a Kick. 15 reps per leg

2 Handed Kettlebell Swings 12kg's 20 reps

One Arm Rows 12kg 10 reps per arm

Kettlebell Push Ups 10 reps

Light Ab work on Bosu 20 reps

Repeated 3 times (took rests as needed)

FInished up

20 Snatches 12kg's 2 sets

Felt like just the right amount. Now I will have the added energy to get through my busy day. And even try and squeeze in a great walk later. Short workouts are ideal for pregnant women. Not too taxing but you can really push yourself enough for this short amount of time. Multiple workouts throughout the day are showing more increased energy rather than 1 long workout a day.

Thanks for sharing all of this great information! I'm late in the blog reading but I have been following the vids on youtube for tips and techniques.

I do have a question for you...for the swings, the lifts etc, what weight do you use? Currently, I'm using a 15lb kettlebell and wonder if I should push it up higher?

Hi j.m.,

I normally use between a 12kg (26lb) and a 16kg (35lb) Kettlebell. Now that I am pregnant I only use an 8kg and a 12kg for most things.

You may want to push it to at least an 18lb. But it really all depends on how your body feels.

I hope this helps!
