7 Reasons Why You Should Work Out During Pregnancy 🏋🏻♀️
First Things first, you get your doctor's approval. While some pregnant women are allowed to exercise since day 1, others aren't till the second or third trimester or even ever. Each pregnancy is different.
Now that you have your go ahead, here's why you should exercise when you're pregnant. Stop making excuses and start TODAY. You lazy Potato!
1) Shorter labor time and easier delivery 🕗
Do the math, delivery and especially the pushing phase require fitness and strong muscles. The more fit you are, the fewer pushes you'll need and the less likely you are to have unplanned cesarean sections. So PUSH! No No, I mean EXERCISE!
2) You'll look better 👩🏻💼
You are likely to gain less weight if you exercise. You have two options: "OMG you don't look pregnant! Hot Mamma" OR "It's ok, you're eating for two (which is not true), you'll lose that weight 9 months after you deliver" Exercising will make you look better and hotter. You choose.
3) Let's talk poop 💩
You're pregnant - You're constipated - You're frustrated and there's nothing you could do about it. Yes, there is. Exercising will put your digestive system on track. (Trust me on this 🤢)
4) You'll have more energy ♻️
Exercising will revive you and make you feel better about yourself.
5) Do it for your baby 👶🏻
Babies born with excess fat are more likely to become overweight. Exercising helps you burn unnecessary fat.
6) Be a star ⭐️
You won't get this if you have never been pregnant. People Love pregnant women. It's like you have this contagious positive energy that put a smile on their face. Nothing beats a pregnant lady in the gym (trust me). You are more likely to be noticed and receive compliments. You're a goddess.
7) Faster recovery 🔙
You and your body are more likely to recover faster from delivery if you exercise. Your strong muscles will help you and your organs go back to where they were faster.
