Why stay fit while pregnant, when it is the one time (depending on how many times you have been pregnant🤣) that many will be lead to believe that you can eat what you want and do minimal to no exercise. This is a massive rookie error.
Speaking from experience the fitter and healthier you can stay or even become, the better pregnancy you will have.
Taking care of you, first and foremost, is priority and if you can learn to, or change your life to be fit and healthy, at this time your baby will then in turn reap the benefits.
Although I am starting to believe that GD is very very common in fit people who do not fall within the bounds of the standard guidelines. Which really just means that we have to do 30minutes of exercise daily and eat healthy (minimal to no starchy carbs or fast foods) not a great loss or change for those of us who do this prior to becoming pregnant) we seem to cope well with the increase in extra weight. I use to see this as a free strength session where you come carrying your own weights💪🏻🤰🏼👈🏻
The big adjustments came from being fit and fast 🦅to fit and slow🦔....yip you got it
I went from training for races to training for labour. In races we are going hard and fast and although the pain was there in training come race day we hope we have trained enough it becomes less noticeable. During labour it’s all about the pain and what threshold your willing to maintain.
Therefore in the lead up (3mths) the focus of my training is mostly always on endurance, slow consistent riding, walking, freeweights, yoga holds, and learning breathing techniques.
