When it comes to fitness for mums, Charlie has it all covered. It’s not uncommon for her to get you exercising while sorting your childcare. She’s every mum’s dream. Here she shares her top 3 moves for keeping fit and firm throughout pregnancy. Over to you Charlie.
If you’re pregnant and want to workout, it’s best to opt for exercises that get as many muscles working as possible with the least amount of movement. I love recommending compound movements to our pregnant clients. They work two or more joints at the same time, stimulating entire muscle groups. As a result, you’ll get a more efficient workout. It’ll help to strengthen your body too, keeping you trim and toned throughout your pregnancy. These are my top 3 movements that I include in all the prenatal training programmes at Bumps & Burpees.
