Forward Lunges


Stand with your hands on your hips. Step your right leg forward, then with the left foot in place, bend your left knee toward the floor until the right knee is nearly at a right angle. Alternate each side until you've done around 30 repetitions. (After the second trimester, you might need to hold the back of a chair.) Keep your stomach pulled in, your back straight, head up, and shoulders relaxed.
