Gabby's Fit Pregnancy

Gabby's Fit Pregnancy

My girl Gabrielle Reece will be gracing the cover of the December issue of Pregnancy Magazine. I can't get enough of Gabby's great attitude and healthy lookout on life — she is one famous face that seems to have it together.

Gabby believes in working out during pregnancy, as opposed to afterwards when it's time to lose that weight. She explains a few of the exercises that she does to keep fit while pregnant. So to see a few of my favorites, just

Holding a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand, bend slightly at the waist and split your stance so that your right foot is in front of your left foot. Your right arm is extended toward the floor while your left arm is bent in a V. Simultaneously do a slow bicep curl with your right arm and a kickback with your left arm. Do 1 set of 12 reps on each side.
Start on all fours with your spine neutral. Extend your left leg straight back and slightly elevated, so that you feel a burn in your glutes. Holding a 3-pound dumbbell, extend your right arm straight out, at 90 degrees to your leg. Curl your right arm toward the outside of your left elbow, as if you’re giving yourself a hug. Do 1 set of 12 reps on each side.
Place a small chair within arm’s reach of stability ball, then lean on the ball with your back and shoulders supported, your rear off the ground and your left leg crossed over your right knee. Using your hips and glutes, push yourself up into a bridge position; hold onto the chair for support if you need it. Do 1 set of 12 reps on each side.

There are more great exercises to do while pregnant (and even if you're not) so check out the latest issue of Pregnancy Magazine.

I saw her in real life...she was playing a volleyball game in Central Park years ago. She was dating her hubby at the time and he was sitting at the top of the bleachers and when it was over she went over to him and they were really adorable together. I'm glad they are still together. And she is absolutely gorgeous and fit in real life.

She has always scared me with her expressions and such, but I love that she is healthy and true to her form always. She is such a great role model for females.

I love that she loves her height. Being a whole foot shorter than her, I love that she doesn't try to take away from her tallness.

I love her. She did a workout with Self Magazine that kicked my butt! I'm definitely not preggers, but can see myself trying some of these moves.
