Prenatal workouts are tough to figure out right? You always question if it will harm your baby and if it’s safe to do. That’s why we created a butt and thigh pregnancy workout.
You can of course also do this workout without being pregnant!

Erik and I came up with this workout together and it was so much fun doing this!

Romanian Deadlift with bands
Tighten all the muscles in your back as you lift, and push your chest out to keep your spine aligned.
Don’t pull with your shoulders or arms by shrugging or bending your elbows.
A variation of this is called a hip bridge where you put your shoulders on the ground. (yes it is safe to do while pregnant).
Make sure you are focusing on squeezing the glutes instead of using your core! Get as full range of motion as possible.
Make sure to keep your back aligned, heels on the ground, and chest up.
Go to at least 90 degrees.
This will give your glutes a little break, unless you want to get some extra burn add the band!
Can you tell I am having fun!? Haha this one is pretty simple.
You can do all reps on one leg at a time or alternate, Squeeze glutes!
Keep your kicking leg locked for maximum flute isolation!
Make sure to get a full range of motion, and, you guessed it; squeeze those glutes!
Fun fact: This actually uses your gluteus medius! It’s the side one that rounds out your bum!
More for quads and hip-flexors, for balance.
I like to point my foot partly habit from being a dancer, and to get some light calf work.
Side Lunge or Crab Walks
This one’s meant to burn out your last bit of energy so give it all you’ve got!
Thanks for reading! Do this workout once, twice, or even three times a week!
For full body benefits though, I’d suggest using this as part of a full body or upper, lower split (working different parts of the body on different days of the week.).
Your glutes will hate you, and then thank you!
