3 Moves to Relieve Pregnancy Back Pain

We've got three pain-busting moves from the pros to strengthen your back now.


Stand with your left foot on one end of a handled resistance tube, feet wide. Hold the other handle with both hands at chest height in front of you and rotate shoulders to the left [1A].

Pull the band across your body to the right, ending with hands at shoulder height in front of you and torso facing to the right [1B]. Return to starting position and repeat.

Do 10 reps, then repeat with right foot on the tube. (If you don’t have a resistance band, hold a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell instead.)

Strengthens: Core (which includes your lower back)
