and all others who are not pregnant and not a mum:
I challenge you to workout along with me during my pregnancy. And tell me your scores! I am curious…
To answer lilla’s question: “Did you keep working out with Zuzka for a while after you found out [you were pregnant]? And if yes, for how long?”
I am generally a very active person. Before I got pregnant I had already started training for a marathon, I was learning how to dance tango and went salsa dancing. In the morning before work I did some yoga (yogatic) and a short homeworkout (bodyrock / zuzka light) two or three times a week. Generally I did some kind of activity on a daily basis.
I am a former bodyrocker. I used to follow the workouts posted on bodyrock.tv, and then later also zuzka lights zwow’s. However when I became pregnant I could not do the same workouts anymore. It was very frustrating to first chose a workout for the day and then think about how I could replace every other exercise in that workout with a different one that would be suitable for me. But since I read about all the benefits from staying fit during your pregnancy I wanted to continue working out. I really missed an alternative to bodyrock, that would have workouts for pregnant women. A site providing workouts that could easily be done at home, without any equipment and especially a site with a variety of workouts. The pregnancy exercises you can find online tend to be endless repetitions of each other and I got bored with them. So hopefully my routines will help some of you to stay motivated and keep fit with all the changes you are going through.
