support, compression, coverage, comfort.
4 things you need when staying active while pregnant! i put the Flourish Maternity Tank to the test recently for both weights & cardio and was impressed to say the least. my #1 reason? the fabulous, full coverage, built-in bra which kept the girls in place the entire time. i love that it even doubles as breast pads when you’re nursing to prevent leakage stains!! #beenthere #awkward how cool is that!? built-in bras fail me left and right, even when i’m not preggo. but not this 3 in 1 tank. no need to buy a sports bra, belly band, and a maternity tank separately ever again. i’ve actually never worn a belly band before, but the Mumband experience helped me hold better posture while lifting! even with all the bending and reaching, the band stayed in place, didn’t ride up and/or expose me, and continued to provide wonderful back and belly support. the thick, soft, double wide, criss cross strap design provided maximum support without digging into my shoulders.and that teal! it’s one of my favorite colors. currently, you can save 20% on your tank now by simply joining Mumberry’s mailing list, woo hoo!fit mamas, i encourage you to take the Mumband Challenge. if your belly doesn’t feel more supported while wearing the Mumband maternity belly band, you can return it for a full refund. win-win.
also, i’m wearing a pair of my favorite crops and my snow leopard Nike’s from mother’s day last year!
and now, here’s a 1st and 2nd trimester workout you can do at home with your yoga ball! if you’ve got young kiddo’s around, hopefully they let you complete it, LOL! use moderate dumbbells; not too light, not too heavy, yet challenging.
- wall ball squats + lateral raise 3 X 12
- hamstring curls on ball 3 x 12
- good mornings with ball 3 x 12
- glute bridges on ball 3 x 15
- chest press/fly on ball 3 X 12 (1 chest press + 1 chest flye combo)
- dumbbell punches 3 X 25
- overhead claps 3 X 12
- side bends 3 X 15
- standing twists with yoga ball – this is actually a warm up move! (always warm up for at least 10 min). these feel really, really good to your spine and lower back.
