If you are a lady and you are expecting a baby, do not sit and relax, do the following activities so that do don't experience difficulties during labor.
Walking. Taking a brisk walk is a great workout that doesn’t strain your joints and muscles. If you’re new to exercise, this is a great activity.
Swimming and water workouts. The water supports the weight of your growing baby and moving against the water helps keep your heart rate up. It’s also easy on your joints and muscles. If you have low back pain when you do other activities, try swimming it will relieve the pain.
Riding a stationary bike. This is safer than riding a regular bicycle during pregnancy. You are less likely to fall off a stationary bike than a regular bike, even as your belly grows. It is therefore good exercise that has no injury at all.
Yoga and Pilates classes. Tell your yoga or Pilates teacher that you are pregnant. The instructor can help you modify or avoid poses that may be unsafe for pregnant women, such as lying on your belly or flat on your back which is not safe after the first trimester. Some gyms and community centers offer prenatal yoga and Pilates classes just for pregnant women.
Low-impact aerobics classes. During low-impact aerobics, you always have one foot on the ground or equipment. Examples of low-impact aerobics include walking, riding a stationary bike and using an elliptical machine. Low-impact aerobics do not put as much strain on your body that high-impact aerobics do. During high-impact aerobics, both feet leave the ground at the same time. Examples include running, jumping rope and doing jumping jacks. Tell your instructor that you are pregnant so that they can help you modify your workout.
Strength training. Strength training can help you build muscle and make your bones strong. It is safe to work out with weights as long as they are not too heavy.
