In case you missed it, Carrie Underwood has sparked quite a few pregnancy-related headlines over the past few months. First, she started a fertility debate after saying that she might've missed her chance at more kids, and then announced she was pregnant days later. Most recently, she revealed that she suffered three miscarriages over the past two years. Needless to say, it hasn't been smooth sailing to this point. But now she's "doing fantastic," her trainer, Erin Oprea, told Us Weekly in an interview. Oprea revealed that Underwood has been able to stay active during her pregnancy, and gave the details on how she's been training.

"We still do a lot of lunges, squats, and glute work, and a lot of booty and hip work," Oprea told the publication. She's cut back on the intensity of her workouts, avoiding jumping and sprints. What she is doing? "Sumo squats and lunges all day. We still work with dumbbells-curls and shoulder presses," Oprea told Us Weekly. (Related: 4 Fat-Burning Tabata Moves Carrie Underwood Swears By)

Her plan of action isn't too far off from that of her first pregnancy. Underwood worked with Oprea back when she was pregnant with Isaiah, now 3. Similar to this time around, she cut out high-impact moves and continued to hit punching bags, do pull-ups, and lift weights, opting for higher reps with lighter weights. (Side note, Underwood cuts herself slack when she misses a workout-and you should too.)

Every pregnancy is different, so Underwood's routine isn't one-size-fits-all. But if you've got the all-clear from your doc, it's totally safe and beneficial to continue working out while pregnant (as long as you're modifying, and not trying anything out of the norm for you).

Did you know there is a thing called the "cellulite set point"? For example, some women can be around 23% in body fat and not have an ounce of cellulite. But, if their body fat level increases, that’s when they start to see the lumps and bumps. So, if you keep your body fat levels low enough, cellulite won't be a problem for you anymore.
