Tamera Mowry-Housley Shares Her Pregnancy Fitness Routine
Tamera Mowry-Housley is in for the home stretch in her third trimester and she’s taking her health very seriously.
This will be Tameras second child with her hubby Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley. The “Real” host only has a few more weeks and swimming has become her best friend.
She recently revealed that she has been working with LA Rox’s expert Helene Guzman. One of Helen’s tips: “The pool is a perfect environment for women to feel zero gravity pull from the baby bump.”
Tamera also shared her whole experience in her recent blog post. Check out this excerpt:
My Pregnancy Fitness Routine
Through this pregnancy I’ve been working with Helene of LA Rox. She was phenomenal during and after my pregnancy with Aden, so it was a no brainer to work with her again. Because every trimester our bodies change, Helene put together routines that target different muscles and a range of exercises to keep this momma motivated.
At the start of my first trimester the focus was on muscles that will be compromised during pregnancy. Here’s Helene’s list of each body part and why we focus on these early on:
The Lower Back – because we women hold so much weight from the baby bump.
The Shoulders – because they will be used a lot more for lifting baby and car seats etc.
The Legs – because they are the largest muscle group in our bodies and become weaker while pregnant. Most women have less energy during the first trimester and are less active. Leg strength helps with pushing the baby out of the body, so keeping those strong is the focus.
The Arms – because toned arms (biceps and triceps) make moms feel fit and leaner too.
The Chest and Hips – because they help keep the body balanced.
By combining pilates, yoga, core, strength and resistant training through intervals of 3-5 exercises – with bursts of cardio in between – Helene makes me sweat. It’s so gratifying afterward though!
By keeping my body strong throughout pregnancy we’re heightening my balance and strength. So when my girl is born, I’ll be stronger and more energized. A must when there will be plenty of sleepless nights and a family to take care of. And an added benefit to training while pregnant? Getting my pre-baby body back will be much easier. You mommas know what I’m talking about!
