“I’m so lucky that I’ve been able to stay active during my pregnancy,” Kardashian wrote. “If I’m not doing something, I just feel off, ya know? I can’t beast out in the gym the way I could six months ago — and, let’s get real, it’ll be a few more months before I can again — but I’m definitely doing what I can.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star warms up with cardio, specifically 30 minutes on the stair-climber followed by circuit training. Next, she pairs shoulder raises with squats. “Nothing’s better than a move with a dual purpose, right?” she wrote. “For this one, I do a dumbbell press above my head and, as my arms come back down, I drop into a squat. Continue this for 30 seconds for one set — and then do three more!”
Kardashian then does what she calls a “push-up shoulder tap.” She does a traditional push-up and then taps her shoulders with opposing hands before lowering herself down once again. “This move works your arms and chest of course, but also your core,” she explained.
Next, the Good American denim designer does a lateral duck walk with resistance. Translation: She places a resistance band above her knees and hangs onto a TRX strap. Then, she takes three steps to the left, stops to do a pull-up, moves three steps to the right and stops for another pull-up. She does three sets of 30-second intervals.
Then comes two tough workouts: battle ropes and chest presses on a balance ball. For the latter, Kardashian rests her upper body on the ball with her feet shoulder-width apart for stability. “I do 30 chest presses with a dumbbell in each hand for a total of three sets,” she wrote.
For her final two exercises, the reality star holds a squat for a full minute while engaging her glutes by pressing out the resistance band above her knees. Finally, she does a set of planks.
Us Weekly exclusively revealed last September that Kardashian is expecting her first child, a boy, with her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. After being criticized on social media in December for working out while pregnant, she responded on Twitter, “MY doctor and I communicate and my workouts are cleared and highly recommended. Thanks kiddos!”
