51- Prenatal Fitness in the Second Trimester// Why and How Strength Training Will Keep You Strong and Comfortable During Pregnancy

Hey Momma!

Strength training can seem like such a scary and intense type of exercise when you are pregnant, but I am here to tell you how amazing it is for you and why you especially need it during pregnancy! In the second trimester you are hopefully getting some energy back but are also starting to grow that baby bump, which can begin to bring on all the aches and pains like SIJ pain, round ligament pain, sciatica, SPD (pubic bone pain), prolapse and even hemorrhoids! We tend to feel stiff and tight so we go to stretching all the things, when in reality we need to be strengthening all the things so that they can support our body! Especially our core and glutes, which can seem intimidating during pregnancy.  

Inside this week's episode I am helping you understand the importance of strength training, the best core and glute exercises to start with and really knowing your body’s boundaries so that you can feel confident navigating strength training and all types of exercise and activity during pregnancy. This will help you avoid all the aches and pains and complications like leaking/incontinence, prolapse, DRA, hemorrhoids and more! So even if you are not pregnant this episode is going to help you get back to the basics and strengthen your foundation so you can heal! Stay tuned for the Third Trimester and the last of three in my “Prenatal Fitness Series”!
