My Sunday HIIT Workout was adapted from a workout I found on this pregnancy blog. You should adapt it to meet your own physical needs and as always, clear any and all exercise with you OB beforehand!
Fit 2 B Pregnant HIIT
5 minute Warm-up

REPEAT X 3
Two minutes of dynamic stretching (this means stretching while moving. I, personally, just put on a Zumba song and stretch it out to the music).
Interval Training (10 minutes)
:40 jump squats
:40 180 jumps
:40 up-down planks
Cool-Down (10 minutes)
