Stair and Band Workout at Home

Workin' Out

Sometimes a little fresh air makes all the difference when you’re pregnant, already have two littles running you 24-7 and just NEED a workout for your sanity.

First trimesters suck. During this time, I feel sleepy, emotional and at times light-headed. Everyone keeps saying with the 3rd baby I should show super early…and though I feel my body making changes, and we got to see little baby and it’s heartbeat this week, I don’t feel pregnant yet. Just feel blah.

The fresh air this morning helped wake me up and I was happy to be able to get in my workout before my afternoon exhaustion hit.

I’ve been wanting to use our stairs for a workout for a while now, but our contractors are usually busy in the area, so being as it’s Sunday, I had the stairs to myself!

With the resistance band, I did 5 sets each side of lateral step ups with lateral leg lifts. After that I did 5 sets forward step ups with glute kickbacks. I finished the lower body portion with wide banded squat jumps.

After that I did incline push-ups x 15, spidermans x 20, dips x max, and incline kb row x 10 each. 4 sets.

Ended up being a successful workout, and I felt great afterwards…but I was starving! 🙂
