BEFORE BECOMING PREGNANT

If you are planning on becoming pregnant you should begin to shift the focus of your Pilates and the way you are working-out in general.

WORKOUT GUIDELINES

  1. CARDIO FITNESSNow is the time to focus on getting cardio fit so you are in peak condition for your pregnancy. Pregnancy is not the time to decide start running or beginning HIIT – in the months leading up to when you fall pregnant is the ideal time for this type of training.
  2. NO MORE RECTUS TRAINING – We want to have the rectus – or 6 pack – turned off during pregnancy so focus should shift away from forward bending and begin to focus on deep core activation in neutral spine and neutral pelvis.
