Training During Pregnancy


Training During Pregnancy

Firstly congratulations to all you females out there who are expecting. Most beautiful time in your life. There is nothing more beautiful than a female pregnant

If you are not sure about training while you are pregnant ask your obstetrician/gynaecologist and see what they advise

My gynaecologist was most happy for me to continue my exercise regime as I had been exercising for many, many years. Obviously I had to change certain areas of training, but it is really important for your health and well being to train.

I strongly suggest as a female that you listen to your body though as you know best and will feel if something isn’t right



Below are a few key areas to look at if you are training

  • Only exercise to 70% of your maximum heart rate (220 minus your age x 0.7) and no more
  • Do Low to Moderate Aerobic Activity and Strength and Resistance Training
  • Remember to hydrate and take regular breaks
  • Dress Comfortably
  • Don’t do anything risky
  • Don’t perform excessive ab work
  • Don’t do exercises that jolt, jerk or twist your body
  • Don’t hold your breath when exercising
  • Don’t overheat
