Prenatal Exercises For The Thighs

Prenatal Exercises should be a part of every pregnant woman’s life.  There are so many benefits to exercise during pregnancy that you would be crazy not to take advantage of it. Check out all the benefits here:  Benefits of Exercise During Pregnancy.  And then I’m going to share with you the best prenatal exercises for the thighs.

You don’t have to spend countless hours exercising, I know you don’t have the TIME or ENERGY.

But if you would just invest just 3 hours per week, you would get amazing results and benefits.

Want To Gain Less Weight & Have More Energy?

  • Slow Your Weight Gain Even If You're Not Exercising.
  • Pregnancy Nutrition That The Doctors Don't Tell You.
  • Don't Worry Anymore About What You Can/Can Not Eat.
  • Get All The Nutrients Your Baby Needs.

And one of the best parts of exercising during pregnancy is that you get back into shape or even better shape so much quicker postpartum.  

 

I was 2lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight within 3 weeks of delivering my son.  And I know it was because of my pregnancy workouts and healthy nutrition.


You also feel so much better after workouts and it puts you in a good mood and a good mind frame.  It makes you want to eat healthier and be healthy for your little angel that soon will be born. Its so important, that I got a segment on the NEWS talking about Pregnancy & Exercise & Nutrition.  Check it out:  Pregnancy Fitness & Nutrition in the News.

 

Weight Training is the best kind of exercise you can do during pregnancy and it will get you the best results.  So I thought I would give you a little thigh workout and show you this really great exercise that you can incorporate into all your prenatal workouts.  I have hundreds of Prego’s doing My Pregnancy Workouts and getting amazing results.  Check it out.  Its the workouts I did and only gained 20lbs my whole pregnancy (both pregnancies).  Check them out here:  Pregnancy Workouts.

 

 

Pregnancy Nutrition Tips

Pregnancy nutrition/diet is just as important if not more….

I know you are probably a little frustrated like most pregnant women, because your OB hasn’t educated you much on Pregnancy Nutrition.

It’s actually quite frustrating for me…….

 

Aside from giving you a list of foods you should NOT eat, and weighing you in every week, that is pretty much it.  And it’s insane because what you eat doesn’t just affect YOU!  

It affects the baby as well.

 

 

By the way, if you haven’t gotten a checklist from your doctor of what to avoid during pregnancy, I have one for you.

Please make sure that you are not eating foods that are contraindicated during your pregnancy.

They can be harmful for the baby and for you.

 

Here is a great CHECKLIST with all the FOODS NOT TO EAT DURING PREGNANCY.

 

Download Checklist

 

You can print it and keep it with you in your kitchen or purse as a reminder.

And make sure to download the sample pregnancy diet plan I have for you, its 2 weeks of healthy recipes, snacks and exactly what to eat during pregnancy.

 

Its very easy to say “you have to slow down with your weight gain”, but not give you any tools or resources to help you.

 

But you have to control what you eat and not use this pregnancy as an excuse to “Eat For 2”.  I mean you don’t by any means have to diet.  I certainly didn’t and I did allow myself some splurges.  I would eat a bagel a week which I normally don’t when I’m not pregnant, I usually stick to oatmeal which I love.  But you just have to make GOOD CHOICES.  You should want to anyways because everything you are eating now is affecting your little baby.  So make good choices girlfriend.

 

So here is what I’m going to do for you.  I’m going to give you a NUTRITION GUIDE with exactly what to eat, all the RECIPES, good SNACK OPTIONS, etc.  So that you can get an idea of how you should be eating during your pregnancy so that you can be healthy, be creating the best possible environment for your baby, and so that you don’t gain EXCESS WEIGHT so that you are not super uncomfortable all during pregnancy and feeling huge and self conscious.  And so that you can lose all your baby weight fast postpartum.

 

Pregnancy Nutrition Guide

 

I made this 2-Week Nutrition Guide to give away for FREE to all my pregos because I work with so many in my Fit Mom-To-Be Workout Program that always have so many NUTRITIONprenatal_exercises_for_-the-thighs questions.  So, I figured I would make this in an easy to read, print and follow way to help you take the guesses out of how to eat optimally during your pregnancy.

If you follow it and you EXERCISE, you will not just have a great pregnancy but you will feel CONFIDENT, RADIENT, GLOWING.  You won’t be uncomfortable and have aches and pains because you’ve gained so much weight.  You will have an easier labor and delivery.  You will sleep better, have more energy.  And you will seriously decrease your chances of falling into POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION.

 

I can’t wait for you to get this Nutrition Guide, the recipes are amazing, and there are so many different options for snacks. You are going to love it.  Download it here (It’s totally FREE):  

PREGNANCY NUTRITION GUIDE.

If you exercise, you will see a huge change.  

Less weight gain, not as fast and you will feel tighter, more fit, more energetic and less fatigue.

If you don’t want to spend 6-24 months postpartum losing your “BABY WEIGHT”, invest a little time, energy and possibly resources into your health and fitness this pregnancy.  It will be so worth it when you are back at your pre-pregnancy weight in less than 3 months and feeling like yourself again.

    Hello!! Can you explain how to do the single leg reaches? I may have missed the explanations or a video or something, so if I did, feel free to just point me to where it is! 🙂

    Thank you!

    • Michelle Marie Fit on March 9, 2016 at 4:20 pm

      Rachel, Its like a single leg deadlift so you put one leg up and one stays on the floor slightly bent. You reach down as to touch the floor, bending from the hip like a hinge. bend as much as you can from the hip and then come up and squeeze your glutes. Do them rather fast pace but with good form. Hope this helps.
