If you are pregnant then you should definitely try some Prenatal fitness classes. For future moms we can only say „ Congratulations!” One of the most beautiful periods of your life expects you, one in which you will count every day that brings you closer to the moment when you will hold your baby in you arms. But until then, you shouldn’t forget about taking care of your body and try as much as possible to do some prenatal exercises. All moms must be in top shape and you could attend some prenatal fitness classes!
Of course, firstly you will need the permission of your doctor. However, studies have shown that prenatal exercises contribute to obtaining an easier birth, a shorter period of recovery after giving birth and also help you achieve a gorgeous silhouette faster, after your baby was born and that is why prenatal fitness classes should not be ignored. Still, why pay a fortune for these classes when you could do some easy exercises even from the comfort of your home?
Prenatal fitness classes
We present you 4 exercises for pregnant women which require a low level of effort. These exercises are usually performed during prenatal fitness classes, but, as mentioned, should be tried even at home.
1. Exercises for toning the back and the legs:
Stand upright, having the legs slightly apart and put one leg forward. Keep your palms on the lower side of your back and bend down as much as you can (without feeling discomfort). Repeat this exercise 5 times for each leg.
2. Exercises for toning the legs:
Stand upright having the legs slightly apart. Keep your hands on the hips, with your finger oriented inwards and your shoulders downwards. Push your hands on the hips and bend down, arching your back from the neck to the caudal bone. Inhale and exhale constantly during the exercise. Repeat this movement five times.
3. Exercises for toning the back, legs and abdominal muscles:
Most prenatal fitness classes recommend this exercise the most. Lie on the right side of your body. Bend your left leg and lift your left arm, with the palm facing upwards. Hold the right hand on the floor and lift simultaneously your left leg and left hand. Repeat this exercise five times.
4. Exercises for toning arms, shoulders and legs:
Support your body weight on your hands and knees on the floor, creating a straight line between knees, hips, back and neck, without touching the floor with your belly. Bend your elbows and do an easy pushup. Inhale while bending the elbows and exhale while returning to the initial position. Repeat the exercise five times.
Prenatal fitness classes
These are four very simple exercises for happy and healthy future mothers. They can improve your posture during pregnancy, relieve back pain and fatigue, help you get rid of stress and are very effective in eliminating sleep problems or digestive disorders.
In any case, it is recommended not to exaggerate with prenatal exercises if you haven’t been a very active person before getting pregnant. However, you should devote at least an hour per week for prenatal fitness classes, being careful not to hold your breath for a long period of time, avoiding the dangerous activities that might make you fall or get injured and also excluding sports that involve any type of contact: basketball, volleyball, etc. Also, you shouldn’t practice prenatal exercises in improper conditions (high temperature, humidity, cold, improper equipment, etc.).
All in all, we wish you to have a healthy pregnancy and to stay in shape all the time!
