Kayla Itsines is expecting a baby girl in May, and ahead of her due date, the popular BBG trainer is staying fit. She continues to modify her exercise as her pregnancy progresses, but still creates circuits that could kick our butt (with clearance from her doctor, of course). And, the full-body workout above is no exception.
"Coming closer to the 3rd trimester, I'm leaning more towards full body workouts!" Kayla wrote on Instagram. "These are amazing for anyone wanting to give their abs a little break!" For this, you'll need a kettlebell, medicine ball, dumbbells, and a booty band. If you're not sure what weight works best for you, we've got you covered. For each of the following exercises, do 10 to 12 reps. Complete the circuit four times:
- 1. Single arm upright rows with kettlebell
- 2. Triceps kickbacks with dumbbells
- 3. Bent-over row with resistance band
- 4. Squat to overhead press with medicine ball
- 5. Squat and hold (no weights)
- 6. Kickbacks with booty band
- 7. Bicep curls with dumbbells
Kayla also reminds us to warm up and cool down. If you want more, check out some of her at-home and gym circuits. (Note: if you are pregnant, make sure you get clearance from your doctor before trying out high-intensity workouts — and remember to listen to your body.) Now, let's get sweaty!
