Strength and Conditioning. 
Turkish Get-Ups. Remember, there are about 5 basic steps the Turkish Get-Up. 1.) Set-up. See video below. 2.) Roll over to that opposite forearm. Chest is now at an angle. 3.) Bridge-up by squeezing your booty. 4.) Pull leg through to a lunge. 5.) Bring arm up from the ground and stand all the way up. Now, if you have a bigger belly or DRA, I need you to be really aware of your movement in the first and second step. When you roll to your forearm, your best should be facing between 9 and 10 o'clock. Also, if you are further a long in your pregnancy and/or feeling a little tired today, then take out the 400m run or walk. Just do 10 rounds.
Perform 10 Rounds for Quality: 
2 Turkish Get-Ups Right 
100' One-Arm Farmers Carry Right (50' out and back) 
2 Turkish Get-Ups Left 
100' One-Arm Farmers Carry Left (50' out and back)
400m Run (or Walk)
