Gina Aliotti’s 3rd Trimester Circuit Workout and Importnat Reminders

Dec 8 2014

Gina Aliotti’s 3rd Trimester Circuit Workout and Importnat Reminders

As I am now deep into my 3rd trimester of pregnancy, I wanted to share with you a few 3rd trimester reminders and a lower impact circuit workout. As my baby and belly grows, there is no reason to stop exercising, however it is important to modify and adjust my workouts for where I am and how my body is feeling from day to day! There has definitely been a shift in my energy levels and the types of exercises I can do but in this circuit workout you will see how I have adjusted my exercises to still make things work and focus on my goal to “move daily”. No matter where you are in your fitness journey, pregnant or not, there are always things you can to to adjust your workouts to fit your level and where you are in your life! Finding ways to work within your fitness level and particular needs, at any given time in your life, is what it is all about. With a flexible and modifying mindset, you will have no problem maintaining an excellent fit and healthy lifestyle no matter what.

5 Important Reminders for 3rd Trimester Exercising:

1. Take your time. It may take you longer to get through your workout and that is okay! Take your time throughout each exercise and go with how you feel. Do only what feels right and comfortable for you and your baby! This is NOT a race. The most important thing is that you are showing up and getting your blood flowing. This is not the time to set the timer and hit record times. Take your time, breath deeply and listen to your body!

2. Light cardio. No matter what type of cardio you have been able to maintain, at this point you need to stick with very light lower intensity cardio. Walking, using any form of step machine or even sitting on a bike may become more difficult so it is time to take it to the pool! Swimming is an excellent way to get in your cardiovascular exercise with very minimal resistance and without the weight of your body (and baby).

3. Ensure your body is well supported. As your belly grows and balance is shifted, it is important to ensure your body is well supported throughout all your exercises. Simply sitting on an exercise ball or placing it against a wall while you do your resistance exercises is an excellent way to keep yourself well supported.

4. Hydration. As always, hydration is so important. As you are working your body, be sure to have water on hand and take sips in between each set. It is easy to forget to drink water when you have so many things on your mind so be mindful and always have water on hand so you don’t forget! Remember, set, sip, set sip…

5. Listen to your body. This is key throughout your entire pregnancy but especially as your pregnancy progresses. Things you may have been able to do you may not be able to do anymore. Every day is different. As your baby grows and shifts inside your belly, your body is going to feel different from day to day, minute to minute. Go with how you feel and if something doesn’t feel right, stop and move on to something else If things still don’t feel right, that is time to stop, rest and take it easy.

Gina Aliotti’s 3rd Trimester Circuit

15 Wall Push Ups

With your hand against a wall and feet out flat behind you in a wide stance, perform a push up. Keep your elbows hugging your body to target your upper chest and tricep muscles at the same time.

15 Wide Stance Bench Dips

Start with your hands on a chair or bench behind you, and feet out in front of you in a wide stance. Bend your elbows back, lowering your body towards the ground, aiming to get your arms to a 90 degree angle. Press back up, exhale and repeat exercise.

30 second Wall Sit

With a ball against your back and feet out in front of you, in a wide stance, lower down until your legs are parallel to the ground, as if you are sitting an imaginary chair. Keep your chest out and back upright agaist the wall and both toes and keels grounded to the floor. Hold this position for 30 seconds than rise.

15 Wide Stance Body Weight Squats

With your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart and toes slightly turned out, cross your hands across your chest. Keeping your chest out and shoulders back, lower directly down towards the ground unit your legs are parallel to the ground. Use your heels to press back up to the starting position and repeat the exercise.

10 Pelvic Floor Stretches with Pelvic contraction

Kneeling on hands and knees with your belly parallel to the ground, start by rounding your back and contracting the muscles that form your pelvic floor, also known as “kegel muscles”. You will contract your muscles as if you are trying to hold back urination. Hold for 3 seconds then arch your back and contract your kegel muscles again, as you did before. Hold for 3 seconds and repeat exercise.

Rest and repeat 1-2 more times, depending on how you are feeling…
