Prenatal Workout Tips

prenatal workout tips

During pregnancy, exercise can help you stay fit while also potentially relieving some of your aches and producing serotonin. Our prenatal fitness tips can help you workout safely while you’re expecting.

Spending at least 30 minutes per day exercising during pregnancy may even help you sleep better and lead to a quicker postpartum recovery. It can also reduce back aches, ankle swelling, and bloating.

Exercise is safe, as long as you get the okay from your doctor and follow some guidelines. Some of the best exercises for pregnant women include:
Walking, running, swimming, indoor cycling, dancing, Pilates, and Barre. Try to stick to activities that you already know and feel very comfortable doing. It’s best to leave new workouts for later.

Avoid things like hot yoga and saunas to avoid overheating. Make sure that you listen to your body every step of the way. If you are feeling tired, lightheaded, or just too strained, stop whatever workout you are doing. It’s important to be safe and comfortable at all times.

Bring plenty of water with you and be sure to remind yourself to take sips throughout your workout. Pack some nutritious snacks so that you always have something to eat. This should help you feel less light-headed.
