To inspire you to stay active through trimester 3, we’ve pulled together some helpful home taster circuits from the Jennis Pregnancy app
There are loads of reasons to stay active through your pregnancy, from giving you a burst of energy to reducing stress and anxiety, and improving your sleep. It’s also good for your baby’s stress levels, too.
But, as you get bigger, one of the most important reasons is to help your body stay strong and prepare it for labour and birth. If you’re not sure what’s right for your body and bump, Jessica Ennis-Hill’s Jennis Pregnancy app will guide you through the best workouts for whatever stage you’re at in your pregnancy.
To give you an idea of what to expect, we’ve featured two trimester 3 workouts from the app below.
First up is a five-minute bum blast that Jess has created for those times when you only have a small amount of time to get a session in. You’ll need a Swiss ball and a couple of cushions to support your bump, and once you’ve done the session once, you can repeat it once or twice – depending on how you’re feeling.
If you want a longer strength and conditioning coaching session, this one-set trimester 3 Pregnacise taster is just the thing.
Lasting around eight minutes, the only kit you’ll need is an exercise mat and two dumbbells, but a couple of tins of baked beans or soup will do, too!
As with the 5-minute blast, if you’re feeling strong after one set, you can repeat the set one or two more times.
Once you sign up to the full Jennis Pregnancy app programme, you’ll get a selection of full Pregnacise strength and conditioning workouts for different abilities; a yoga circuit; core conditioning workouts; a full getting started guide and much more. The programme will also update as you go from Pregnancy to Postnatal so that we support you after your baby is born, too. Enjoy.
