Amazing Arms with Kat ~ New Pregnancy Workout!

Hey mama! How you feeling this week? I hope you’re getting through that pre-baby to-do list feeling confident and strong! This weekend Brian and I did our Labor & Delivery hospital visit and yesterday the TIU HQ threw me a surprise baby shower! Everything’s beginning to feel real! Any advice for the home stretch?!

In the meantime I’m so excited to be doing the 31 Day Challenge with you. I’ve been doing the Daily Moves with prenatal modifications and going for walks with Winni for my Sunday “Run”day cardio. Every little bit counts amiright?! I’m seriously so inspired by all your #TIUpregnancy checkins — you motivate me more than you know!!

You may have noticed I snuck in a couple new prenatal workouts in your Studio Tone It Up app too! Let me know once you’ve tried them! They’re short, sweet, and perfect for any trimester. Aaaand because I know you’re a busy mama these days, I put together this amazing arm workout you can do in just 10 minutes below! (Also check out this 15-minute total body pregnancy routine HERE!)

Every mama tells me strong arms are a must and I can’t think of anything more special than using them to hold baby Bella for the first time. ✨

Sending so much love to you and your fam! We got this babes!

xxo,

Kat

10-Minute Arm Pregnancy Workout~

Do the following circuit twice through for an amazing arm routine that tones your biceps, triceps, shoulders, and postural muscles too! Rest for 60 seconds (or as much as you need!) between circuits. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water too!

Curl + Press

Sculpts your biceps and shoulders.

Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand at your sides. Keeping your chest tall and core engaged, curl the dumbbells up to shoulder height, then press them overhead. Reverse the motion and repeat.

Do 15 reps.


Single Arm Row

Tones your back and arms.

Begin with your left foot in front of the right, left knee slightly bent, and left hand resting on your left thigh. Hold a dumbbell in your right hand, arm extended toward the ground. Row the dumbbell up to chest height, keeping your elbow tucked closely to your side, then return to start position.

Do 15 reps on each side.


Bent Over Fly

Sculpts your shoulders and back.

Begin standing with knees bent, holding a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing each other. Hinge forward at the waist, keeping a flat back. Raise both arms to the sides, maintaining a slight bend in the elbows as you squeeze your shoulder blades together. With control, lower the dumbbells back to start position.

Do 15 reps.


Alternating Forward Raise

Tones your shoulders and arms.

Begin standing tall, holding a dumbbell in each hand, palms resting against the front of your thighs. Raise your right arm straight in front of you to shoulder height, then return to start position. Repeat on the left side.

Do 15 reps on each side.


Tricep Push-Up

Sculpts your triceps and chest.

Come down to hands and knees, and position your hands slightly closer than shoulder-width apart. With arms straight (elbows not locked out), lower your hips until your body forms a straight line from head to knees. Keeping your elbows tucked close to your body, lower yourself as close to the ground as possible (bump permitting!), then press back up.

Do 12 reps.
