Read below to find out why I chose to do Insanity Max 30 modified for pregnancy in my second trimester.
First trimester was rough.
I felt sick all the time and was more tired than I ever have been.
Nothing sounded good and the only thing that settled my stomach was CARBS.
I was just trying to survive.
I am now in my second trimester and I feel great. Yes, I still do feel sick from time to time and my stomach is getting larger with some cramps and twinges from time to time. However, it’s now time to take back my health! I want to be strong, healthy, and happy for myself, and for the BABY. My doctor made it very clear that I should be exercising 5-6 days per week and should be trying to eat lean proteins, vegetables, healthy fats, and a balanced diet. These are all things that I did PRE-pregnancy and I want to make that a priority again for these next six months.
With that being said, I have committed to doing Insanity Max 30 modified for pregnancy. I know what you must be thinking; “Is she crazy?” You may or may not have heard about the home fitness programs Insanity, Insanity Asylum, or Insanity Max 30 before and know that they are a fast paced, agility training, type of cardio workout. They absolutely are, but this is also a workout for ANYONE. Yes, anyone. Insanity Max 30 has a “split screen” when you watch it, one side has the normal move and the other has a modified move. I chose to do the modified version which has been perfectly safe and a great way to keep my heart rate up and strengthen my muscles without over-exerting myself.
Often times people use one of the below excuses on why they cannot do a home fitness program.
- too old
- too overweight
- too tired
- or plain “I could just never do what you do”
But that is simply NOT true. It doesn’t matter if you are 70 years old, morbidly obese, or have no idea where to start, you can do a home fitness program like Insanity Max 30. You have to start somewhere. It’s as simple as that. This goes without saying, but make sure you always check with your doctor before starting any fitness or health program, especially when pregnant!
Here are a few example videos I pulled from my Instagram @keri.mignano. These are all sped up moves from Week 1 of Insanity Max 30 modified for pregnancy. Take a look. Does this look like something you can do, even if it were at a slower pace or less intensity?
The moves in Insanity max 30 are simple.
They can be modified.
The nutrition plan is easy to follow.
It can also me modified based on your weight, goals, and what you like to eat.
With that being said, I am now one week into completing the Insanity Max 30 program modified for pregnancy and it is exactly what I need and want. I am also following the nutrition plan, modified as well. My doctor said to add on about 250-300 extra calories during second trimester. I DON’T COUNT CALORIES and never have. I am just adding on some additional fruits and healthy fats to add some food according to the Insanity Max 30 nutrition plan. Below is a copy of my meal plan for Week 2!
