Join Molly for this 3rd Trimester workout that will keep your body strong and flexible as you near one of the most athletic endeavors you will ever ask of it. The beginning of this workout uses a Wunda Chair in order to keep you off of your lower back for too long. If you don’t have a Wunda Chair you can skip the first 2 minutes and sit on a regular chair or your Reformer, and leave out the legwork. You’ll also want a small head pillow to keep your head a bit more lifted for the brief periods when you’ll be lying down on the Reformer. Enjoy!

    Thank you for posting. I’ve been looking for alternatives for my clients who are not so comfortable lying down for any period of time. Great options!

    I honestly think this is too hard in flexion for the perine and the long abdominus, I hope the baby is fine 🙂

      Hi Mathieulh, we may be having a language barrier. I Googled perine and long abdominus. I don’t know what that means. Can you clarify? Do you mean Perineum and Tranverse Abdominis? Either way, I respectfully disagree. With any expectant mother you must ask them how the exercises feel and I base what I give on their fitness level, any prior injuries they might have, ability, how they feel that day, etc. It depends on their pre-pregnancy level. If they were strong intermediates they can totally do this workout. If they were a beginner before getting pregnant they weren’t doing teasers and side sit ups before. You have to use your judgement for each body in front of you. I was an older mom, so higher risk, and had no issues . I bounced back quick – no diastasis recti and got pregnant again at 41. Both babies are great, easy births, easy recovery. Of course there are certain precautions to take but pregnancy a very natural state – not an injury. Women have been moving their bodies every which way throughout their gestation period since the beginning of time. I believe this workout is safe for a healthy pregnant body. And both my babies are better than fine! Thanks for watching!
