You Can Do This Prenatal Pilates Workout Anywhere There's Room for an Exercise Mat

Pregnant or not, Pilates can be a great workout. (Here are eight reasons why every woman should try it.) It strengthens your muscles while improving elasticity and joint mobility, and while it can be a bit more challenging when there's a bun in the oven, it's not something you have to avoid altogether. This routine, designed by Grokker expert Jaime McFaden, incorporates moves that will not only keep you strong overall, but also pay extra attention to safety. Plus, it can be done anywhere there's room for an exercise mat, which is pretty clutch if you don't want to slog your way to the gym.

Before you get started, though, be sure to consult with your doctor—it's necessary before starting any prenatal fitness regimen. And don't forget to check out these tips for running while pregnant, and ways to solve common prenatal yoga problems.
