Sample Pregnancy Workouts
In this section you will find sample exercises and workouts adjusted for pregnancy. This is the strength and flexibility training which would be done two to three days a week. To complete your pregnancy exercise program, add to these exercises 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise every day. Choose activities that appeal to you, such as swimming, walking, jogging, biking, dancing or using a treadmill, elliptical trainer or stair-step machine. The Activity Selector can help you find a pregnancy exercise you enjoy.
As with any exercise, you should begin by warming up your muscles for 5 to 10 minutes in a way you enjoy. Walking in place or dancing to the radio are very easy to do anywhere. Be sure to pay attention to how you feel, and be aware of any contraindications to exercise in pregnancy.
