How to do bodybuilding during pregnancy?
The practice of bodybuilding must be adapted to the period of pregnancy, a key moment in a woman’s life.
During pregnancy, we must know how to combine our physical condition with all aspects of our daily life , such as bodybuilding. During this period, you can perfectly practice bodybuilding, lift weights or bench press.
However, we must be aware that our physique is not 100% of its capacity, so the program must be adapted , so as not to harm ourselves or the baby. In fact, during pregnancy, our state of health evolves and becomes increasingly fragile , which is an obstacle to certain positions. Thus, it is necessary to gradually reduce the intensity of the postures , as well as the range of possibilities of the latter.
In the first trimester , we will simply have to be careful to gradually reduce the intensity of the movements and lift loads more gently.
In the second trimester , you should practice your bodybuilding more gently. In fact, as the blood circulation will experience some potential disturbances, too jerky movements could cause dizziness or vertigo.
The same is true in the third trimester , where everything will have to be done smoothly , more than in the second trimester. As you can see, being pregnant is not incompatible with bodybuilding, you just have to know how to do it!
Thanks to positions like the pelvic floor, the shoulder press or the row , you can continue muscle development, but in a more gentle way. Be that as it may, doing bodybuilding while pregnant always requires the advice of a specialist beforehand, think about it!
