Tips for Strength Training in 3rd Trimester

•Always bring water with you
•Eat preworkout fuel – banana, toast with jelly, dates (depends on the type of workout & what your body is used to)
•Use the restroom RIGHT before you workout
•If anything hurts or feels awkward STOP or modify
•Take it easy, this isn’t about getting sore or gaining muscle – it’s about moving and staying healthy for you and baby
•Do the amount of weight that is comfortable for you. Adjust as needed throughout workout
•It doesn’t matter if it’s a 10 min workout or a 45 min workout, it’s amazing that you are still moving in your 3rd trimester (I had to constantly remind myself about this)
