The importance of zinc during pregnancy.
Zinc is a vital nutrient for your baby. The levels of zinc in your placenta affects size of your baby’s head size and head circumstances at birth.
Top food sources: leafy green vegetables, seafood, pumpkin seeds, cashew nuts.

Thank you all SO much for your support! One of the coolest things that happened yesterday when we launched our postpartum guide is that SO many of the women that bought the pregnancy guide snapped this one up right away. 👏🏽 They have found SO much value from our pregnancy guide that they’ve now trusted us with their postpartum journey. THAT means the world to us.
We cannot wait to keep providing everyone here with valuable information for pregnancy and postpartum!

6 days after giving birth. Looking forward to getting back to the gym after my recovery. .
I trained consistently 3x a week with Coach @andrew.hartt from @fitnation.id until before conceiving until my 7th month of pregnancy. .
We did alot of compound lifts such as deadlifts, squats, rows, overhead presses, lunges and bench presses to strengthen my body all over, especially posterior chain, my core and pelvic floor. .
Getting back into shape after pregnancy means doing *resistance training* during and before pregnancy, not just afterwards.
Good luck to all the soon to be mothers! .
Thank you @fitnation.id thank you coach @andrew.hartt.

SOCK WORK ✖️Put your socks on, find a slippery surface and slide into the weekend!
-
There are tons of exercises to try using socks (which basically replace gliders or sliding disks) a lot focus on intense ab work such as plank Jax, Mountain Climbers, sliding pike etc but I’m obviously avoiding all exercises that are advanced and put strain on my belly. Take things slow, exhale on the effort and keep your core switched on. You’ll target your legs, inner thighs and glutes. Rep range is optional, go until you feel it. Enjoy! ✅
-
NB: I would not recommend these exercises if you are new to working out during pregnancy, stick with trainers! And make sure you don’t over stretch. Also get the all clear from your GP or midwife before starting any exercise program if expecting.

Out for a quick little walk. Well as quick as I can walk these days. Going to do everything I can to kick gestational diabetes in the ass.

So working out has been challenging because “lil muscle” is all in my way 👶🏾 however.... today was a pretty dope day in the gym💪🏾! This is a snippet of what I did:
#WOD :
8 minutes on the stair stepper at level 5 kick backs every two minutes *lunge curl ups (I’m just making up names at this point lol) 3x8 each leg *calf raises with 25lb. Plate between each exercise *squat dumb bell pull ups (more imagination ) 3x8 each arm I’m definitely feeling the burn!

So I’m getting heavier & the weights I’m allowed to lift are getting lighter, but I’m still doing it at 29weeks preggo! Thanks to @ampt321 for his great pregnancy training knowledge & keeping me straight with what I can & can’t do safely! I get annoyed that I’m more restricted with my workouts, but he still manages to keep them varied & interesting 🏋🏻‍♀️💪🏻 Only missed 3 classes & 1 PT due to pregnancy & feeling fantastic for continuing to train 5-6 times a week! Hoping to be able to train right through to due date 🤞🏻 #gymbunny #girlswholift #pregnancyfitness #feelinggood #gym #workouts #deadlifts

Have you ladies checked out the #fitbitversa - it’s a smart watch that has female health tracking and collates data on your fitness, sleep and female health. Right now it’s telling me I have 4 days until my next period. I wonder how accurate it will be considering I’m still breastfeeding and my hormones are a bit out of whack due to stress++. I’ve been working with @fitbitanz for the past few months and I absolutely love their dedication to women’s health. They really want to get women’s health messages out there and they share my frustration with how dismissive we are of women’s health issues. I’m looking forward to breaking taboos and breaking into workplaces with #fitbithealthsolutions in the coming months. #fitbit @fitbit

* BEAT LAST WEEK! *
In fact, haven’t ran as fast at #eglintonparkrun since May!! Can’t quite believe that I’m a week more pregnant and ran almost a minute quicker than last Saturday! How is that possible?! I didn’t feel like I was running at that pace at all and chatted the whole way round. Had my running buddy @hughiehood to keep me company again this week. We took it easy on the first mile and upped the pace (unintentionally) on the 2nd and 3rd. Well done also to @jamiecripps81 on completing his first #parkrun 👍🏻 Smiles all round at the finish 😃

I was 40 plus weeks pregnant here with Meherpal on 11/12/11 sitting on the white tantric yoga stage serving the facilitator. This was one of the most special days of my life to have Meherpal inside of me.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that over 40 weeks is late. Every woman is different and every baby gets exactly what they need in the womb of the mother!! 📷 by 💕

No, but really 😩 Mike went out with his friends last night so I got to play musical beds with the kids. More like I got to play how many times can the kids come in my bed, fall asleep and start kicking me before I get up AGAIN to put them back in their bed. We’ve been waiting on our new bed to get delivered for weeks and lord do we need it. I’m too large now to be squeezing in our bed with them. Hurry up I need my big bed!!!! .it http://liketk.it/2wz3z

today aka 6.5 months with my little bundle of joy, Caiden 💙 Nursery is pretty much done too.
Update:
He is over 14 inches tall, weighs about 2 pounds, and is the size of a butternut squash • I’ve gained about 20-25 lbs so far • I’m still feeling really good other then the cramps feeling when he stretches me out • Braxton hicks contractions already started • Comfort is the only thing that matters so I live in dresses and granny panties lol • I haven’t noticed any crazy cravings so far • Anxiety chest pains are a common thing now • and everything else you don’t want to hear lol

Suns out bumps out 🤰

How gorgeous is this photo! When mums support each other amazing things happen 🖤 I was lucky enough to form friendships with some amazing mumma’s in birthing classes almost 3 years ago and we’ve supported each other through motherhood ever since! They’re women I wouldn’t have even met if it wasn’t for being pregnant, so cheers to my mums group 🥂

Happy weekend mumma’s!

Vandaag laten we een schouderoefening zien, want sterke en gezonde schouders zijn erg fijn.👌 (Na een val tijdens het skiën heb ik veel schouderklachten gehad, dus ik spreek uit ervaring…) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
De Half Kneeling Single Arm Dumbbell Overhead Press (wow, wat een mondvol😱) is echt een topoefening om te leren om je schouders goed te gebruiken. We hebben het gewicht in één hand om eventuele krachtsverschillen tussen links en rechts op te lossen. Ook komt er meer balans en stabiliteit bij kijken als je het gewicht maar in één arm hebt.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Doordat je in een half geknielde positie zit, komt er minder druk op de bekkenbodem dan wanneer je zou staan. Dat is prettig als je zwanger bent of aan het herstellen bent van je bevalling. Je bekkenbodem vindt het dan namelijk niet fijn om veel druk op te moeten vangen. 🤚🏾 Daarnaast zorgt deze positie ervoor dat je core hard moet werken om ervoor te zorgen dat je bovenlijf niet naar de kant buigt waar je het gewicht vasthoudt. Het is daardoor een oefening voor zowel de schouders als de core. Twee vliegen in één klap.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hoe doe je de Half Kneeling Single Arm Dumbbell Overhead Press?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Ga met de knie van je achterste been zitten op een matje/kussentje, je voorste been staat in een hoek van 90 graden 👈🏾
- Hou je bovenlijf rechtop en pak met je tegenovergestelde hand van het been dat voor staat de dumbbell (als je linkerbeen voor staat, dan hou je de dumbbell in je rechterhand vast) 🙋🏼♀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Probeer om je ribbenkast boven je heupen te houden en te voorkomen dat je je rug hol trekt ☝🏾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Duw je hoofd niet naar voren en maak een dubbele kin 🙊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Adem uit en duw de dumbbell tegelijkertijd omhoog⬆️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Zorg dat de dumbbell loodrecht boven je schouders is als je arm gestrekt is 🙋🏼
- Adem in als je de dumbbell naar beneden laat zakken
- Laat de dumbbell niet te ver zakken, stop net iets boven of ter hoogte van je schouder⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Zet ‘m op!💪
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

FIRST DAY OF SUMMER HOLS LADIES 😱
.
Anyway I'm guessing we'll be spending a lot of time in the park this summer, so how about getting into the habit of dropping a few squats whilst you are there? Squats are PERFECT for pelvic floor exercises as the action helps your pelvic floor engage. Squat down, and then as you pull up back to standing you engage your pelvic floor (fart, wee, pull) and SQUEEZE! .
Do around 10 full squats like I do, and then aim to pulse for 10 too (have your pelvic floor engaged whilst pulsing!).
.
Up for the challenge?!

Isn’t it crazy just trying to comprehend how a few months can transform a body so drastically! Isn’t it amazing that our body is able to grow and nurture another life? I’m often awestruck by this concept. Here is a peek at my second pregnancy. Although I try not to compare my first pregnancy with this one it’s difficult not to, the toll on my body this time around is much more intense than it was the first time. But I think that’s to be expected, and as rough as it’s been- I count my blessings that this baby is still with us. I’ve suffered two miscarriages and have one, soon to be- two rainbow babies🙏 I cherish this time as I anxiously await his arrival! I wonder who he’ll take after, will he be stubborn like his Mama or quiet and calm like his Daddy? Will he have my nose or cheeks? How will his brothers react in the coming weeks? There are so many unknowns! Do any of you Mamas wonder about these things as well? Are you a first time Mama? Tell me about yourself in the comments below!

Is it safe to say that pregnant people aren’t the best dancers? You lose your balance and grace and with that seems to go any sense of rhythm (no offence to my pregnant mums 😉) so I’m getting these harder dance workouts in while I still can.
.
I’m hoping to keep dancing on Saturdays no matter how ridiculous I start to look cos, let’s face it, looking ridiculous has never really stopped me doing anything before.

Strong is the new beautiful ❤️ Here’s me at 39 weeks pregnant ☺️ Proud of my bump and confident in my own skin as we all should be ... Advert: The reason I’m so passionate about the @dymatize_europe #womenstrong campaign is because I’ve gone from the girl who was scared to use weights in the gym and only did cardio or classes at a push to the girl that has the confidence to train in any gym alone and from someone who couldn’t think of anything worse than being in front of anyone in a bikini because I hated being called “skinny” to the girl that stepped on stage at @pureelitecomp and won my bikini category and gained my pro card! My journey then took another turn when I fell pregnant but I was determined to continue to train, so I did my research and cut out anything which could be dangerous, I listened to my body at all times and I stayed active ❤️ after having my beautiful baby boy when my body had recovered and I got the all clear from the GP I got back into my training and 5 months after giving birth I won another show in the bikini and fit mums category, I’ve then gone on a year after birth to win my pro category. I guess I just hope that if I can encourage at least one person to step outside of their comfort zone then our #womenstrong community will continue to grow. #getdymatized #pregnancy #postnatalfitness #fitness #pregnancyfitness #strong #confidence #ad #strongisthenewbeautiful #strongnotskinny

The stretch is especially fantastic for hip/pelvic pain relief. Use a chair for stability and slowly sit back into the movement. After time you can progress to no chair using your hands to support you. Only put your entire body weight into this stretch when you are feeling no pain. .

Today in a month our little 🦁 girl will be born. Unless of course she decides to come before that. I will miss feeling her kicks 💕

1Haven't worked out this week and I feel the difference. Somehow walking and moving is harder. I really think staying active helps and gives me energy.
Looking forward to my next session at the end of the month. But next week we'll be enjoying some family time with @edowlandkabwe

A simple workout targeting core + legs + arms for you to save! I know i say this alot but please Take Your Time. 10 reps of each (or on each side) continuously for 24mins. Make sure to rest when you need and drink plenty of water. Dont do anything that feels sore or uncomfortable and remember to be conscious of engaging the deep core and pelvic floor throughout each exercise.
SUITABLE FOR ALL TRIMESTERS

Why at #31weekspregnant am I still working out, lifting weights, and actively trying to break a sweat?
. . .
Isn't pregnancy the time to put your feet up and eat all the pregnancy cravings foods you want? I mean, you have the ultimate excuse to eat practically whatever you want and as much as you want: you're eating for two!!
. . .
Well let me tell you, this is baby number 3 for me and I've seen it and done it both ways. As much fun as it is, as much instant gratification as I got from eating candy and ice cream and ginger ale, the reprocussions I had to deal with were not worth it.
. . .
During my 1st pregnancy, I was working close to full time in a gym as a fitness coach so working out at least 3x a week was part of my job. Honestly, if it wasn't my JOB I probably wouldn't have! My mind wasn't in the right place. I ate ok but still indulged a bit. Overall it was a pretty easy pregnancy and birth!! Besides dealing with postpartum depression, recovery was also fairly easy.
. . .
With my second I didn't exercise AT ALL and was restricted to walking only and strictly not lifting more than 20-lbs from 20 weeks on. I gained a TON. My knees started hurting. My feet were sore every night. It was excruciatingly painful sleeping on my side because of all the extra weight/pressure on my hips. I had to push more and longer during labor, and my giant baby broke my tailbone. Recovery was a bitch.
. . .
So I'm doing this for me now, me later, and me 10 weeks for now. I'm doing this for the health of our baby boy. I'm doing this to model healthy habits for my family. I'm doing this for me: physically & mentally.
. . .
I'm doing this to be fit for life! 💪😘💕

During my twin pregnancy I didn't care about what I was eating or how I looked! I gained 5stone and went from a size 8 to a size 16-18! After giving birth as some of you who follow me , will know I experienced postnatal depression and anxiety! It got so bad I was prescribed medication to help me through my darkest of days , a year later when my twins turned one I knew I was stronger then my demons! I turned to fitness as my new motivation and passion to help me through and from that moment on I've never looked back, I love exercising and the benefits that have come with it.
My twins weigh around 2.5 stone each in total almost 5stone- the amount I gained during pregnancy!!! I'm now a happy healthy and my depression and anxiety are much better even tho I still have the odd anxious day here and there. My journey hasn't been easy but I can assure any other mummies out there it has been worth it my children are my life and I'd do it all again! Fitness has helped me not only physically but mentally too! I'm learning to love my body again! Even tho it isn't perfect i have two healthy happy beautiful children I couldn't ask for more! Post natal depression was the most terrible experience I've ever had in my life! no one can tell you it's going to happen to you and dealing with it can be hard! But just know there is a light at the end of the tunnel! @fitnessmommyrolo

This time last year I was full term and had just completed a really great gym workout. I was not feeling 40 weeks at all!
Little did I know at the time that Brandon would keep me waiting another 3 weeks 😵

Although the weeks... and days... and nights were long I 100% believe that it was my training that kept me going.
I was getting to the gym 2-3 times on a good week but it was enough to keep me in a great routine and gave me more energy on the other days.

I experienced the usual discomfort and pain but my body and mind was strong.
By keeping resistance training in my program I was able to maintain good posture preventing back, neck and shoulder pain. My lower body training allowed me to bear the extra load and remain active with my busy toddler.

I also included a lot of stretching, Pilates, and cardio ensuring I worked all muscle groups keeping my body in balance.

I was active during both of my pregnancies but knowing the second time around what I could and couldn’t do certainly gave me the confidence to know that what I was doing was completely safe.

I like to share my journey, experience and knowledge in hope to inspire others. Maybe you live an active lifestyle now and worry about that changing when you become pregnant or you are currently pregnant and don’t exercise because you don’t know where to start.

Feel free to get in touch as I would love to help you on your fit pregnancy or postnatal journey 💖

Just reflecting back on the journey I have been on this past year.. sometimes I don’t appreciate what I have achieved and am too hard on myself. It took 9 months to grow my amazing baby and carry him, the journey will not be a quick fix, yes some mums can bounce back, for others it may take longer, I accept that mine might, I have a small frame and I carried a big baby! And for longer than expected..but my journey is my journey no matter how long or hard and it is special ❤️

Start the day the right way!⠀

My morning pregnancy barre classes are a great way to get your body ready for the day, whilst helping maintain muscle strength & physically preparing for labour & birth. ⠀

I can’t wait to meet all the new mums to be, if you have any questions just send me a message or comment below 👇

Leg day and day 4 of our new program!!! Because even though I’m 31 weeks preggo I still have legs that need worked 😂👍 Plus one of the BEST moves you can do while preggo is squats to help build that pelvic floor and get ready for a workout of a lifetime ✌️ So this is one of my fav days 🙌

Now onto ✌️rest days because I need them 🍑😛 #fitpregnancy #31weekspregnant #31weeks #bumpdate #babybump

I’m still feeling good enough to Plank 🙌🏼 which is awesome! I’m making sure to keep my spine from over arching and it’s much, much tougher than it used to be but I feel controlled through my core. I’m on half a spring. #31weekspregnant

Disclosure: As I’ve said before every prenatal client is difficult and I’ve been doing Pilates for many many years. I only have a handful of prenatal clients that are strong enough to plank in their 3rd trimester without doming their abdominals or feeling unsafe. Always do what feels right for your body👍

💥 Workout Alert for your Flex Friday 💥

The body achieves what the mind believes. With that said, when you’re lifting a muscle group - cut the noise & really focus on mind muscle connection. Towards the end of the video, I also show a slower momentum, which is what I adapt often to really feel the muscle

EXERCISE: Close grip bicep curl
INSTRUCTION:
1) Hold a barbell with both hands, palms up and a few inches apart.
2) Stand with your torso straight and your head up. Your feet should be about shoulder width and your elbows close to your torso. Keep your upper arms and elbows stationary throughout the movement.
2) Curl the bar up in a semicircular motion until your forearms touch your biceps. 3)Exhale as you perform this portion of the movement and contract your biceps hard for a second at the top. Tip: Avoid bending the back or using swinging motions as you lift the weight. Only the forearms should move

I usually pair biceps with back or chest. Happy Friday! BRB as I go on a date night with the hubs and play rap music on the way there. Shocking. 😂

As my pregnancy progresses, my weight is increasing changing my weight distribution and body shape.
My centre of gravity is moving forward which is altering my balance and coordination.
I’ve always been un-co with terrible balance. Here I am stumbling around the gym. I had to swap dumbbells for a barbell with these lunges to help with my balance 🤷🏼‍♀️ .

It’s Friday.
Sweet Charlotte is teething.
I didn’t feel like cooking.
We’re both exhausted.
So we treated ourselves to some @chickfila and starting the weekend off by watching Coco (or “bobo” as Charlee puts it ☺️) in our jammies!

Although I reeeeeeally wanted a LARGE order of fries and chicken nuggets, I opted for the spicy southwestern salad (#veggiesmost) and it hit the spot 👍🏻 if you’ve messaged me about joining my challenge groups, I PROMISE I will be responding to all messages TONIGHT when baby girl goes to bed! Thanks so much for your patience this week as I’ve been single mommin it since Tuesday and haven’t been as present on social media as much as usual! 😬🙈

Movin Mama workout! Trying to keep moving! Things are getting more uncomfortable, but still so grateful for the pregnancy journey I’ve had. It hasn’t been all rainbows but I’m super stoked that so far still no morning sickness. And that I’ve been able to workout throughout my pregnancy. Even if I only make it to a workout three times a week, I am still super proud of myself 😊😊🙌🏼. Making a human is hard work. Be easy on yourself! .

Thank you to my friend Ronit from @leagueofmoms who is so bravely sharing her struggle with #diastasisrecti. She’s the mom of 2 gorgeous babies and an amazing entrepreneur who has created a fantastic online directory for mom services in the GTA. Check her out! 💫
Here I am assessing her abdominal tissue - specifically looking for how much tension she can generate in her core during a small curl up, and how many fingers wide is her linea alba (middle of the 6 pack muscle) separation.
Ronit is a strong and active mama with a background in dance, yoga and gymnastics. Today we worked on getting her to practice her ABC’s. Alignment, Breathing and then Choreography. Basically we need to make sure she is properly aligned and breathing well in her diaphragm before she will get good results from exercise choreography.
Ronit’s homework is to practice deep core breaths, 30 x morning and 30 x evening - specifically she needs to learn how to release her pelvic floor and tummy when she inhales. Years of dance training has her “sucking in” her mid section all the time which actually makes the issue worse, messing with her breathing mechanics and deactivating the diaphragm and pelvic floor. She is also seeing a pelvic physiotherapist to help retrain her internal pelvic floor to both release and contract properly.
This is a very common issue we see with women!
The message: be kind to yourself, stop sucking in your tummy and remember to master your A’s and B’s before your C’s!
Want more? Check out our online Core Restore video streaming program. And for the record, it is never too late to start! Ronit is 9 months postpartum. We will keep following Ronit’s @leagueofmoms journey, so stay tuned for more updates.
And once again, thank you to this brave and selfless mama for sharing such a vulnerable thing with the world and helping other mamas in the process. Love you for that so SO much. 🙏

Reminiscing over the days that I could train my glutes and lie on my back 😂
With my pelvic girdle pain this pregnancy I’ve had to admit defeat and pretty much stop training legs completely now. I used to do 3 leg sessions a week, now I do 1 if even that and it’s more of a body weight session.
I must admit though that the pain is soooo much better and not as constant. Just proves that you have to listen to your body!! -

When you think you can’t get any bigger 🤣 35 weeks today ... it feels like I’ve been pregnant forever. For an update on how I’m feeling ... I ache all over, I feel huge and fear I am developing cankles 🤰🏽🤦🏽‍♀️ BUT I’m going to just rock it until the little bambino decides to arrive 🤙🏽 [ @myproteinuk // photo by @checkered_photography ]

No i udało się! 😁 Pierwszy workout za mną. Niby tylko 10 kg obciążenia, niby z przodu tylko brzuch przeszkadza, a jednak ciało zachowuje się zupełnie inaczej. 👈
