Ive always used stability balls for my workouts, but have fallen especially in love with them since becoming pregnant again.
Using stability balls during workouts force you to keep your abs engaged, so even if you’re “just sitting there”, you’re still working your core!
When I’m not pregnant, I love to work my abs in more engaging ways (ab workouts with stability ball to come postpartum). But now that I have an extra 40 pounds to carry, I prefer doing my favorite upper body moves while sitting upright on the ball.
Here are my favorite workouts:
2. Overhead Extension
3. Bicep Curl
I perform each workout for 12 repetitions and 3 sets (totaling 36 movements altogether).
These 3 key moves are my favorites for keeping arms and shoulders toned. Are these arm workouts in your workout routine yet? If you’re prego like me, I suggest trying them on your own stability ball–great preparation for labor AND you give your body a good workout. 😉
