I love this 20 minute workout by Fit by Larie because you can really adapt the workout to your needs. Want to put a little extra energy into it? Go for it! Are you a bit further along in your pregnancy? Take it slow and do what feels right.
My view: Larie talks you through the whole workout, which feels great. Her stance can be a bit wide (when pregnant, I would always advice to stand no further than hip with apart), but over-all I think her form and exercises are great during your 9 months.
Good to know: It’s only 20 minutes so you can really try your best without getting too fatigued. But always to make sure to listen to your body and only do what feels right during the four working blocks with 4 exercises per block. A nice warmup and cool down are included as well. You’ll be working upper body and lower body and some safe (indirect) core exercises like boxing and lifting your legs sideways. It’s all low impact, so no jumping!

– Lots of info at the beginning. I think it’s smart to listen to the information at the start of the video, but if you are doing this workout for the second time, then you can skip to minute 3.
Disclaimer: I have been working as a pregnancy and postpartum fitness trainer for 5 years and I approve this workout. If there is anything that I would change about a video I probably wouldn’t post it or I would tell you about it in the text above.
Nevertheless it is very important to always listen to your body: does this workout feel right? Or am I doing too much? Then pease stop. It is always the right choice to talk about working out during your pregnancy and after delivery with your physician. Especially when you don’t work with a trainer 1-1.
