6 Best Workouts During Pregnancy

Happy pregnancy to you! You might have already heard, but now is not the time to be trying new things in the fitness realm. Any workouts and exercise routines you were already committed to before that awesome positive test – most doctors will recommend you continue it. Eventually, you’ll drop the intensity and frequency, limit the weight and range of motion, all based on your body’s cues and your comfort level. Even if you weren’t working out before this pregnancy, there are still safe exercises you can do for a healthy three trimesters.

Flexibility and stretch

If this is your first baby, you’re very likely to experience round ligament pain. This is your body’s first go-round to pregnancy changes and the ever-stretching tissues never get a chance to relax. Once you reach the third trimester, stretching should be a daily habit.

Prenatal yoga

A customized workout for your evolving body and growing baby, prenatal yoga helps stretch, warm and increase flexibility within the muscles.Yoga with assisted stretch also helps alleviate lower back pain while promoting better sleep


A British study showed a short term mood-boosting effect in the dancers following class. Dancing also helps with balance and coordination.

Weight Training

If you’re already weight training, great. You should be able to continue under the supervision of a trained instructor or coach and approval of your doc.


Easy and so beneficial for pregnant women. Walking helps pump the blood up out of the legs to avoid clotting and swelling. It works your heart just enough to reap the benefits of cardio exercise.
