Little video from my Leg session this morning at nearly 22 weeks pregnant 🤰🏋️♀️. - ✔Barbell front foot elevated split squat. ✔Barbell back squat. ✔Banded Dumbbell Hip thrust. - I will continue with weight training throughout my pregnancy for as long as I can for many reasons: - Firstly, I’ve been training in the gym for close to 10 years, so why stop just because I’m pregnant. - I actually enjoy working out and it makes me feel good😝💪. - Just because I choose to exercise during my pregnancy, doesn’t mean every pregnant woman should exercise during their pregnancy. - If you are currently pregnant make sure you get cleared by your DOC/OB/MIDWIFE before performing exercise. - Every pregnancy is different, so don’t compare yourself to others. - Below are some of the stats from research conducted over the years. - Remember these are actual facts from scientific papers of studies that have been carried out on pregnant women 📚🗞📒. - ✔Improved weight management during pregnancy and post-partum. - ✔Reduced risk of gestational diabetes. - ✔Reduced lower back pain. - ✔Decreased risk of preeclampsia. - ✔Easier labour. - ✔Better psychological well-being, with a reduced risk of post-natal depression.
