This workout is for all levels of fitness and suitable during all trimesters. If you want to work a bit harder, Amy from BodyFit by Amy is sure to give you many modifications during this workout. Or as she calls it: tons of options.
So if you are used to working out HARD before your pregnancy, you can work hard here as well. Just don’t forget that you are pregnant! No matter what your fitness level.
My view: Amy talks a lot about working out safely during pregnancy, so listen carefully to her advice during this workout. You will definitely learn something. Always listen to your body, especially when using weights. Just follow along and enjoy!
What you can expect: This workout is created with equipment (dumbells or kettlebells) but make sure you don’t go too heavy with your weights. Some of the exercises can be a bit much on the core muscles when you use a heavy weight. Even if you are used to working out with them.
You can also opt for two water bottles or even cans of soda in stead of dumbells. Always be safe!

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 please 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.
