A Trainer Gets Brutally Honest About Why You Aren't Seeing Results

Work It Girl: At Your Desk BOOTY

You sit on it all day. You fear it might be spreading. Stand up and take a few moments to work your BOOTY while at work.

Move 1) Place your hands on the back of your chair for balance. Reach left leg out directly behind you, pointing your toe.

Move 2) Keeping your knee straight, lift your leg just using your booty, without leaning forward. Don't worry, it won't go very high. Use your deep abs to keep from arching your back to lift your leg and to help you stabilize. Repeat 15 times at a fairly quick pace, then switch legs and do the other side.

Try to do this multiple times a day. It gets the blood moving in your seat.

And to see how NOT to do it,

3rd trimester exercise and stretching can be really tough. All that relaxin (the hormone that makes the ligaments stretchy for delivery) can do crazy things to your joints, if your pelvis feels vulnerable, you should take it easy. Do you feel like your inner thighs are weak? If yes try squeezing something (a pillow, a rolled up towel) gently with your knees while sitting in a chair. Check out http://www.befitmom.com/exercise.html for some good guide lines. A lot of folks say to just start slowing it all down and chilling out for the last bit of pregnancy. Good luck.
