I’m Natasha and this is our lovely modelNatasha who’s in her third trimester and we’re going to show you how to do someSecret Saviour Climbers.
This exercise is fantastic for working yourwhole body.
It’s strengthening your arms, it’s strengtheningyour tummy and your bottom and you’ll get some leg work in there aswell but it just doesn’t put any strain on yourskin at all.
So, Natasha, I want you to flip over and havestraight arms holding on to your chair.
Now, before you go anywhere, I want you toreally think, “Are my shoulders straight over my hands?”Because if they’re too far forward, it can put quite a lot of strain on your neck.
So, you’re perfect.
So come and step in to a Straight Arm Plankfor me.
Great! And then really think about pullingyour belly button in to your spine, tucking your hips forward and squeezing yourbottom a little bit.
Now, this is quite hard in itself and if youfeel like you’re getting enough of a workout, you could just hold this for 10 to 30 seconds.
And this is already working your arms, yourtummy, your bum and all of your legs.
But because Natasha’s super fit, we’regoing to make it harder.
I want you to bring one knee up to the chair– good – and then step it back again in to a Plank.
Now, as you can see, Natasha’s not movinganything and it’s like it’s just the knee and thehip moving and that’s where you’re doing all thework on these lovely core muscles, which you’re going to need for deliveringyour baby.
