Pregnancy Workout - Leg moves!

Hey again, everyone!  I have some pretty basic leg moves for us pregnant people (or not pregnant people, too).  It's always important to keep our legs strong- especially with that extra weight we are getting on our tummies!  The first move is a squat-kick.  Do a squat, come up and kick one leg, do another squat, and kick the other leg.  Next is the squat pulse- yep, just pulse it!  With squats, make sure to keep your butt back and don't let your knees go over your toes.  Only go as low as you can- don't hurt yourself trying to get too low.  You're still gonna get a nice workout in. 
Third is the lunge pulse- same thing here, just pulse.  From the pulse, go into regular lunges.  With lunges, also keep your knee behind your toes and bring that back leg as close to the ground.  Whichever leg you are using more to push yourself up is the leg you will feel it most in so try to keep it even between them both.  Don't forget to squeeze your glutes on the way up in both the squats and lunges!  Do 10 reps of 4-5 sets (or as many sets as you can) for each move. :)

*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.
