Don’t Overdo It!
Crazy how some women never even had a pre-pregnancy relationship with the gym, baby bump shows, they become gymnasts.
Every woman wants the super Angelina Jolie ”bounce back” after baby body. So we find the preggy women werking it all out. But we may want to focus on the baby’s health a tad more than we focus on our dream body. Keeping the baby is more important, I guess.
Some No-No Exercises For Moms-To-Be
Weight loss exercises: Let’s face it, you will put on weight during pregnancy, depending on your pre pregnancy weight, get your mind ready for about 25-35 pounds. It actually is a sign that you have a healthy thing going on inside your belly, not a curse. So keep calm. How much of that weight you lose is dependent on the exercises you do AFTER delivery.
Contact sports: After the third trimester, sports like soccer , basketball hockey , should be completely avoided. You can get hit in the stomach, you might be super woman and take the pain, but u sure ain’t carrying super fetus.
Fall prone activities: Asides being super uncomfortable, having a horse gallop with you and your six month old fetus is just NO!. Ride a bike, a stationary one.
Don’t overdo it, shorten the necessary work out times. Rest more, drink lots of water , leafy greens and fruits work great too.
