3 Moves to Relieve Pregnancy Back Pain

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


Stand with feet a stride’s length apart, right foot in front of left. Hold a 5- to 10-pound dumbbell in each hand, arms extended at sides. Bend forward from hips, stopping when your back begins to round [2A].

Rise up to starting position and bend elbows, curling weights toward shoulders [2B]. Extend arms to starting position and repeat. Do 5 reps, then repeat with left foot in front of right.

Strengthens: Core, hamstrings and biceps
