How to WorkOut During Pregnancy

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually important to stay physically fit when you’re pregnant. Exercising will not only help you to feel better, but also prepare you for labor.

As your doctor may have told you, workout during pregnancy may depend on your fitness level, your trimester, and of course, on how you’re feeling.

It’s extremely important to know what exercise is beneficial and which workout during pregnancy is dangerous. No matter which trimester of pregnancy you’re in, these exercises will help you to stay healthy during your entire pregnancy.

It’s important to note that as a pregnant women you may feel out of breath more quickly than what you used to. However, this is completely normal. In fact, you should know that during the 9 months of your pregnancy, you’re normally breathing up to 20-25 percent more because your body needs to flush out more CO2 from your bloodstream.

It’s very important to know that everyone is different: You are different than the instructors in the videos, other pregnant women and your friends. That’s why your exercise has to be personal, and you should avoid putting too much pressure on yourself and your baby.
