Static Lunges and horizontal shoulder adduction

Exercise of the week! You can stay healthy by  maintaining a regular exercise routine throughout your pregnancy. If you have never exercised regularly before, you can safely begin an exercise program during pregnancy after consulting with your doctor. Choose carefully a personal trainer.

Starting position: standing position with the one leg extended   behind you holding the elasic band in front of your chest.

Execution: Inhale and during exhalation lower yourself bending your knees while pulling your arms backwards.


The front knee shouldn’t go over your toes

Keep your spine straight



  • You can perform the exercise without moving your hands
  • You can use a chair for better balance
