Try out this Lovely Legs Interval Workout for a fit pregnancy! It’s actually great even if you’re NOT pregnant! This workout is great to do during your 3rd trimester. A workout that strengthens your core and lower body to help prepare you for labor. Give this 18 minute prenatal circuit a try. Your leg day just got better. No gym required. All you need is a chair. Keeping a strong lower body is important during pregnancy and this leg workout helps maintain your lower body strength.
When creating this routine I also wanted to make sure the exercises were safe for diastasis as splitting of the abs usually happens in the third trimester. I wanted ones that involved moving the lower body in different angles to continue to maintain lower body strength and with moves that also worked the core.
If you are new to my story you can see more about how I am working out differently this second pregnancy to prevent a large diastasis post baby.c
These exercise moves are great to do during any trimester.

This workout targets your lower body.
Get ready to burn some calories and have fun doing it to stay strong during pregnancy.
The quick step ups with butt lift is a great move that really burns the thighs while targeting the butt too. Make sure your chair is stable to protect yourself while working out. The curtsy lunge with side kick is a favorite move of mine plus it’s fun to do. The curtsy lunge targets your inner thighs as well as your glute medius, a smaller butt muscle that helps stabilize hips to help improve your posture. I have done lots of lunges this pregnancy and love this variation of it.
I have been loving doing chair butt taps during this pregnancy. This circuit I added in front kicks for a different variation and to bring a little core and cardio to the workout.
I am so excited to be sharing with you a new maternity activewear company called Mumberry. Check out their story here. I love how they believe activewear should do more than just cover your bump. And I agree. I absolutely love the extra belly support that this workout tank provides my baby bump.
I feel this tank is a great option for moms to get some extra belly support during pregnancy. Plus like I said in the video it is super comfortable which is so important during pregnancy. You want to feel comfy and this maternity top does that and more as it provides your growing belly support during your workouts. This tank also has a built-in sports bra which is really nice. Overall I felt it fitted me great. I am small chested so the top was slightly loose but it didn’t bother me. I still loved how it looked and felt on.
I am wearing their boost maternity tank with bumband support.
Maternity Activewear from Mumberry. A comfortable and supportive fitness tank with a built in belly support band called Mumband. They also have tees, pants and and capris all with support.

Mantra for week – I try every day to be a better version of myself.
Focus on doing your best every day. Don’t stress about being perfect. Just remember you have the power within you to change anytime you want. Keep focusing on having a positive mindset and start doing little things each day to make yourself better.
I love this mantra as it means so much to me, even more now as a mom.
As moms we feel like we have to be great at every thing we do. We have so much on our plates that it can be exhausting. I try to focus on being a better person and mom each new day. I let go of the past and focus on the present and where I am going in the future. I know the little things that I do every day to show myself self-love is helping me create a better version of myself.
Let me know what was your favorite move was.
See you in the next workout.
xoxo Lori (and Michelle)
