At this point I am 100% restricted from excersise due to dehydration..

I was crossfitting and doing some hard core dance videos but I have to lower my intensity.

But I'd like to hear recomendations for low intensity workouts that don't use a lot of abs. I have 2 and 5lb hand weights, a jump rope,and a yoga mat. Not much but it should help me get through the pregnancy and stay some what active.

** anything outdoors is out until April/May when the snow and ice melt, if we get any (winds are too high to be outside currently)**

You can always do some pregnancy workouts- there are some on youtube...Tricep kickbacks, clean and press, military press, congdon curls, hammer downs, upright rows, straight arm rows....I would definitely look up pregnancy workouts. P90X would actually be okay if you did just the weights portion and for the Plyo you modified it to just stepping and not doing the jump training. I would also skip the pushups and anything that would be too rough on your core right now.
