While being pregnant may come with its challenges, you don’t necessarily have to give up your physical activity so long as you do it in the right way. Here are some of the most effective yet safe workouts that you can do while pregnant.
Ellipticals and Rowing Machines
Elliptical and rowing machines can prove comfortable to use while pregnant. Make sure to set the machine to the right speed, incline, and tension levels that are comfortable for you so that you don’t experience any pain as you work toward your fitness goals. Elliptical machines are particularly helpful for alleviating back pain during your pregnancy.
If you enjoy classes such as Zumba, then these could prove to be effective ways to work out while also making some fitness friends. It still remains crucial, however, to monitor how well your body is coping and avoid exercises that are too strenuous and require too much balance.
So long as you make sure to go slowly and not overexert yourself, indoor cycling is an effective way to stay in shape. What’s great is that you can pedal at your own pace, thereby ensuring that you only do what you’re comfortable with.
