Exercise during pregnancy.
There is so much confusion and conflicting advice out there. However the benefits of exercising during pregnancy (providing you are healthy and cleared by your health care professional to do so) are hard to ignore!
The exercise you choose to do however is just as important as exercising in the first place. Make sure you are working out mindfully and constantly assessing how you feel, how you recover and aware of any symptoms you should be watching out for that may mean you should modify or back off a particular movement.
It’s important during this time to remember that even if you can still do a particular exercise- it doesn’t necessarily mean you should. Ask yourself what the benefits are of that movement- is it beneficial to your changing body or not. Everybody is different and exercise selection will be dependant on many things including pre pregnancy fitness levels, how you are feeling and how your body is managing certain movements - there is not a one size fits all approach for exercising in pregnancy, it should be tailored to each individual.
However, Edging away from sit-ups, crunches and planks (and anything front loading or involving spinal flexion) is advisable, especially after the first trimester due to the already increased pressure on the core.
Pregnancy is also a great time to start making that connection between your breathing, core muscles and pelvic floor ready for both dealing with the ever increasing weight of your baby and recovering post birth.
Over the next few days I will be focusing on pre and postnatal advice and tips to hopefully help dispel some of the confusion during this time!
