Dancing is one of our go-to options for cardio. I mean, heck, it’s fun, gets your heart rate up and gives you a really good excuse to listen to your favorite guilty pleasure tracks. This past week over on Fit Bottomed Mamas, Sara Haley, Reebok global fitness trainer, shared a whole pregnancy dance workout plus ideas for a playlist that we just had to share. Check it out and share it with your preggo friends!
Pregnancy Dance Workout
When I was pregnant (and even when I’m not), one of my favorite ways of staying fit was dancing. Finding ways to feel good while you are working out is key during pregnancy, and let’s face it, the majority of us, even if it’s just in the privacy of our own bedrooms, love dancing around to good music. It gets our hearts pumping, and more importantly, it’s just plain fun. All of which are so important during pregnancy. Here we are in these forever-changing bodies that we have no control over. One of the best ways to enjoy the process is to stay healthy. Dancing will help you stay fit, which ultimately helps you feel sexy, provides some comic relief and keeps you strong during the long nine months.
So here’s my first suggestion: Compile a list of your favorite dance tunes (the ones that would get you up and dancing if you were at the club or at a wedding). See my Mommy-To-Be Playlist below if you need some suggestions. Then put on your favorite lipstick, let your hair down, and let the dance party begin!
