Squat it Out with Momtastic


I'm presenting this week's workout via Momtastic, an amazing website for mamas and moms-to-be where I've had the opportunity to contribute over the past few weeks  (click here to go straight to the workout).  Your exercise for this week is all about the squat. Whether you're expecting or not, we all need work on our squat. When we were young it was a natural position for us, but squatting has become a position of the past, although it has so many benefits... especially for expecting mom's like me!

Not only does the squat tighten and tone the derriere like nobody's business, but it's the best exercise we can do to prepare our bodies for delivery(Yes, in my opinion even better than the kegel!). The squat position shifts our pelvis forward and opens the hips for an easy exit for baby. It's also one of the only exercises that will stretch out the pelvic floor and perineum area. I think we can all agree that avoiding an episiotomy (or tear) is a major priority... so, better get squatting!

For these reasons and so many more, let's squat it out!
