Home Gyms for Pregnant Women
The physical activity for a woman during pregnancy has a positive effect on her own health condition and on the condition of her child.
It is necessary to work out using fitness equipment at home 3 times a week, if you practice less, it will give absolutely no benefit, but only an additional stress for the organism.
To warm up you need to choose a treadmill and exercise bikes. They are, by the way, suitable for practicing at home. Classes on cardiovascular equipment are also very useful, because during such classes you can constantly monitor the pulse.
You should also choose fitness equipment with emphasis on the back. These exercises are very effective, because they are aimed at working with the muscles of the arms, back, legs, deltoid and pectoral muscles.
Doing such exercises during pregnancy, a woman provides easy childbirth, as well as a rapid recovery of the body in the postpartum period.
Use the treadmill for walking. The most optimal walking speed should be no more than 5 km / h. Remember, that you should always monitor the pulse.
Eliminate exercises with weights, twisting, exercises for abs.
In terms of pregnancy, 12 weeks is the most critical time. Therefore, classes in this period should be as light as possible, load-wise. Starting from the 7th month, it is necessary to stop workouts because even the smallest loads during this period are very dangerous and often lead to premature birth.
It is not recommended to visit the gym, because there’s a risk of being injured. The best solution is to exercise at home during pregnancy, observing safety rules.
During pregnancy, the joints of a woman become very vulnerable. You should know that the hormone which softens the ligaments of the pelvis is produced in the body of a woman. It is necessary for the normal delivery. However, this hormone also affects the ligamentous tissue (ligaments of the knees, elbows, legs). You should take this fact into account when exercising.
Before, during, and after exercise try to drink a sufficient amount of fluid. Avoid drinking juice and soda. Drink plain, non-carbonated water at room temperature.
Proper breathing is also crucial. Take a deep breath when you do a more complex element of workout and exhale when you do the easier one. Any exercise increases the temperature of the human body. This may affect the health of your child, so the room should be aired and it shouldn’t be too wet and warm.
Pregnancy is not a disease and if it proceeds without any complications, the exercises using fitness equipment will make it even more pleasant.
