Tuesday Trainer Q & A!

Nicole Snooki Polizzi - Workout Sweat!

Hey guys! This week’s trainer question comes from Des who asks, “I’m 18 weeks pregnant and I’d like to know what exercises are safe to do so I can continue working out my arms and my legs to get rid of cellulite.”

Working out while pregnant has been a debatable issue for decades. Thankfully, science has concluded that regular workouts tend to make the delivery process easier and reduce post pregnancy recovery times. At 18 weeks, your new arrival is developing quite rapidly and we want to avoid excessive stress in the abdominal region. Avoid movements that require you to “bear down” or concave your torso in a way the ribs approach the pelvic area. Your rep range should (on average) exceed 15 reps to ensure poundages are safe. Of course, NEVER embark on any regimen under these circumstances without the clear notification and authorization of a licensed physician. Giving birth next to a dumbbell rack is NOT COOL.
