Tips For Exercising When Pregnant

Some women think that being pregnant means they have the opportunity to slack off and pack on the pounds, adopting the whole "I'll lose it after I have the baby" mantra. Nine months without exercise is a long time, and it may not cross your mind now, but you'll be kicking yourself seventy pounds later when you're dragging yourself to the treadmill. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends around thirty minutes or more of moderate exercise daily for expectant mothers. Benefits associated with exercising when pregnant include quicker recuperation after the birth of the baby, maintaining a more positive attitude during pregnancy as well as not gaining as much weight during pregnancy. Exercising when pregnant may sound like a lot of work, but we've got proof that working out when pregnant can actually be a lot of fun.   see exercises
