All Over Body Workout

Hey, everyone!  Today's quick workout will involve just about everything.  Yay!  There are five moves.  I thought it would be fun to mix it up and have it more tabata style.  What that means is you will do each move for 20 seconds and then take a 10 second break before doing the next one. Do that at least 4 times through (or as many times as you can).
The first move is a squat into a modified burpee (if you can still do burpees at this point in your pregnancy and you feel comfortable, then go for it).  Make sure when you squat your knees don't go in front of your toes and you go as low as you comfortably can.  In the burpee be sure to keep your back straight and your shoulders should be aligned with your wrists.  The next move is called a spider.  Alternate each leg coming up to your hand if you can reach that far.  Stay in that plank position with a flat back.  The third move is a v push-up- bring your toes in as close as you can, turn your hands in toward each other and do a push-up.  You should be on your toes so that you are feeling this in your shoulders and not getting too much help from your legs.  The next move is to just hold a v position.  Lastly, hold a plank!  Remember, just do what you can and have fun!

*Disclaimer: If you are pregnant and/or have not done much exercise before, make sure you check with your health provider before doing any of these exercises.
