Not that this is particularly relevant to me right now, but I know women who are curious about this question. And it’s a legitimate concern! Is it dangerous to work out while carrying mini me? Are there more suitable exercises for pregnant women? Is having a strong core worth anything to a pregnant woman? (One of my physical education teachers in school strongly believed that all women need to have a strong pelvic floor, a strong core, and hip flexibility because these make pregnancy and childbirth easier. Not that that was particularly relevant to 14 year old me, but I remember!)
- Girls Gone Strong just blogged about this in a post entitled, ‘5 Myths of Pregnancy and Strength Training‘. It’s worth a read.
- I love New York Times, and this article on pregnancy and weight lifting was one of my favourites in September.
