A Pilates Workout for the Whole 9 Months

Build strength for labor and stay in shape during your entire pregnancy with this circuit of four amazing Pilates mat exercises.

It’s nice to have an added incentive to work out: This prenatal Pilates routine that’s safe to do in every trimester not only builds strength, balance and stamina, but can help you have an easier labor, too. “Doing Pilates throughout your pregnancy will help keep you relaxed during delivery,” says Lizbeth Garcia, San Diego–based Pilates instructor and creator of the 10 Minute Solution: Prenatal Pilates  DVD. Get your doctor’s OK first, then begin with a brisk 20-minute walk to warm up, and do five to 10 reps of each move.
