So, I'm in my cami doing my hair today....and couldn't help but notice for the first time ever in my life that my arms look extremely flabby.....and I'll probably be wanted to wear short sleeve/sleeveless things come July when I'm 9 months pregnant.....looks like I'll be starting me some arm exercises......
I can totally relate....for me...I do the "corn curl"..1 can of corn in each hand and curl up, back, side, front...and the "chair ups" on the edge of the chair and do backwards pullups..?? I saw it on Oz sometime back and these work great and easy to do while in the home...
This thread totally inspired me to get off my behind last night and actually do some light weights and modified pilates moves. I have been too tired/sick to follow through with my exercise routine for the most part but I really want to stay in shape throughout pregnancy. Also, last pregnancy, I was banned from exercise so I want to take advantage of it this time.
You could always just do easy lifts and stretches during commercial breaks or while you are on the phone at work. My problem area is actually my thighs/behind. I need to find a simple solution for that.
I'm a fan of weight lifting so all I'm going to say is hit those weights girl! We're women and no matter how you cut it, we're going to have arm flab! Don't focus on bicep curls, it's the triceps and shoulders that you really need to work. You'll see a huge difference after just a week or two. Pushups and dips are great. All stuff you can do at home in just a few minutes! But love yourself and your pregnant body. I'm betting your flabby arms won't stay flabby long after carrying a baby around all day
