If you used to work out a lot before getting pregnant, you can still continue to do so. In fact, you should take it more seriously now. The only difference now is that you have to be extra careful. During pregnancy, your body undergoes changes. Simple things like taking a walk around the house becomes stressful. Asides that, there’s the mood swings, lack of sleep, aches, and back pain. To feel better, there are some simple prenatal stretches and exercises you can do in the comfort of your home. If you like, you can also hire a personal trainer to feel safer. Some gyms offer pregnancy safe training Dubai or exercise sessions. To get started, here are some of the safest prenatal exercises to do.
This is perhaps the easiest prenatal exercise to do. All you have to do is walk. Fast. Brisk walking is a natural way of strengthening your heart and lungs and also reducing the risks of complications such as preeclampsia. It helps you burn calories while relieving any backaches and loosening the muscles. It also helps you sleep better because you would have exerted a lot of energy.
This is an enjoyable exercise to do while pregnant. Prenatal Yoga focuses on improving your flexibility and relaxing your body. It helps you breathe better and also prepares you for labor. However, it is best if it is done supervised. Although it seems harmless, there are certain precautions you must take and some poses to avoid. You can either sign up for group sessions or hire a personal yoga instructor.
Cycling is another great exercise for pregnant women. However, it is best to do stationary cycling (indoors) because it is less risky and will make you feel more comfortable. It can help improve endurance and maintain your weight. Before you start cycling, ensure you speak to your OB-GYN to confirm if it’s the right thing for you.
Planks are great for strengthening your back and abdominal muscles. They also help to improve your posture and do not strain your spine. But, as for most prenatal exercises, it is highly advised to do them with a certified trainer. This is because some modifications will have to be made based on your trimester, weight, and health.
This a perfect way to stay relaxed but active during pregnancy. It helps you feel lighter and also reduces your body temperature, making you more comfortable. Because of this, you are able to engage your muscles more and move around better.
