Everyone knows that exercise is very good for your
health. During pregnancy, exercise can have many
other benefits as well. Normally, exercise should
be light, especially during your first few weeks
of pregnancy while your body adjusts to the changes.
Any type of heavy exercise can divert the blood
flow from crucial areas, and most women that exercise
on a regular basis should tone down their workout
regimen during pregnancy.
Swimming, walking, and yoga are two very popular
exercise activities that are suitable for pregnant
women. There are other forms of exercise such as
weight lifting that are acceptable as long as it
isn’t too strenuous. Most specialists recommend
exercise 3 – 4 times a week, unless you have a
medical condition that prevents it. If you are ever
in doubt, you should consult a physician first.
Below, you’ll find some of the best reasons as to
why you should exercise during pregnancy.
1. Exercise can help to reduce the length
of labor and recovery time. The right exercise
routines will also increase stamina that is needed
2. Improved mental health. Exercise can
lower stress and improve your emotional health,
making it easier for you to get through the
new experience of becoming a mother.
3. Exercise can also help with weight
management after the child has been born. A common
concern with most mothers is the weight they lose
after pregnancy. During pregnancy, exercise can
make postpartum weight loss easier.
4. Exercise is very good for your unborn
baby. By keeping your body healthy, you are also
looking out for your baby as well.
5. Exercise can help reduce the side effects
of pregnancy. Symptoms such as fatigue, headaches,
swelling, and constipation are all common with
pregnant women. Studies have shown exercise to
reduce the occurrence of these symptoms.

of premature birth. Exercise has been proven to
decrease the risk of premature birth by at least

baby. Your baby will reap some of the benefits,

Making the decision of where you will go to exercise
is a very important step in reaching your goals of
fitness. A lot of factors will go into this
decision, and each one should be evaluated well
before you start exercising. Once you have made
a decision on where you will go to exercise, you
can move on to deciding how you plan to work out.
As you probably know, exercising at home has many
advantages. The finance department is one of the
best advantages. With the gas prices being what
they are today, it is quite obvious that you’ll
save money on fuel as well as wear and tear on
your vehicle by choosing to exercise at home.
Memberships to a gym can often be quite expensive
and may include other things that you don’t need
such as child care or swimming pools. You also
won’t need to be concerned about the latest
trends of exercise gear as you most likely will
be exercising by yourself at home.
Keep in mind that working out at home does
require a bit of financial obligation. Even
though you may plan to run, it is very important
that you have high quality running shoes. This
statment applies to any type of equipment that
you may purchase to use at home. If you go
out and buy cheap equipment, you’ll probably
end up getting hurt or getting frustrated because
you aren’t making any progress.
Along with the financial gains, exercising at
home may also help those who don’t like to work
out in public. If you are worried about how you
look in gym clothes, it is very comforting to
know that the only person who has to be with you
when you exercise at home is you. Also, when
you exercise at home, you don’t need to worry
about time at all.
Those of you who are motivated by being with
people you know or come to know while working
out away from home, a gym may be a better idea
than working out at home. At the gym, you’ll
also more of a selection of equipment as well,
far more than you’ll have at home.
If you need other services than just weights and
equipment, the gym may have just what you need.
If you plan to swim a triathlon, you’ll find the
swimming pool at the gym to be just what you need
to prepare yourself. Swimming is also a great
exercise for your body and cardio, as it will work
muscles in your body that you probably didn’t
even know you had.
Gyms will also offer you classes that you may find
very motivating. If you attend class on a regular
basis, you may be motivated enough to continue
so you don’t have to defend yourself when asked
where you’ve been or what you have been doing.
You can also meet new people in class, or just
help others along if you choose.
