Now more than ever is a brilliant time to keep fit during your pregnancy. So I have put together my top tips to help you and of course come and join me with my Live home workouts! I will look after you- being a mum of two and specialising in pre & postnatal exercise I promise you are in good hands.
So here we go......
Wear comfortable supportive clothing. There are some great boob straps and bump supports.
Rule..... leave your/my workout feeling like you could have done an extra 10 mins... remember you are growing a baby.. you are amazing.
"How do I know if I'm training to hard during pregnancy?" The talk test--- basically i want you to be able to still talk during your training... i.e you should always be able to have a conversation during any exercise during your pregnancy.
Squat squat squat - always through your pregnancy unless you have been advised otherwise and sometimes with a low placenta your be advised not too. So why are Squats super good- well they automatically work your pelvic floor and can be a great birthing position where you are likely to be in for a long time.
Keep moving --- If you can't face a session... try and go for a walk.
Keep hydrated during your exercise and always- I Incredibly recommend purchasing - E-Lyte mimics electrolyte levels in the body for optimal hydration- I use it. Great for pregnancy cramps etc. Use my code KF10 to get 10% off https://bodybio.co.uk/products/e-lyte-balanced-electrolyte-concentrate
Focus on maintain your fitness. Forget pushing for personal bests in sports just maintain and modify when you need too.
Prop yourself up with two cushions when training on your back so you are at an incline. Chest inclined up.
Keep your training interesting and fun........which means you need to join me! *wink wink* Subscribe to my kimmyfitnesslive .......
