When you are pregnant, it’s important to keep your fitness routine going and to get your body in shape. This is one reason that you might consider doing some gym workouts for pregnant women. But first, you need to be sure that you are healthy enough to even attempt to do workouts at all. If you have any health conditions, you should see a doctor first. But the following workouts can definitely help get you started and continue to help you as your pregnancy progresses.
- Back Exercises
Do back exercises, especially those that involve rotating your arms and shoulder muscles, on a daily basis. You can do simple back exercises like a push-up. Do these on a firm surface with no extra pressure (such as on the bed) and don’t strain at all. Start with this exercise and add weights as you progress.
- Arms & Biceps
Do simple push-ups in which your arms are lifted. Use a mirror to make sure that your arms are parallel to the floor. This will help to prevent any bulging and keeps your skin tight. To do this during your pregnancy, try to do these exercises while lying against a wall. You can also do these arms on the bed if you have an extra-large bed to accommodate your growing belly.
