What pregnancy exercise activity do you prefer?
Most mainstream sports and activities are safe to continue during pregnancy – you’ll just need to modify your usual regime, especially as your baby bump gets bigger.
Running is easy, inexpensive and an ideal cardiovascular exercise – there’s no reason to give up running during pregnancy for as long as you feel comfortable. But don’t feel you have to improve or even maintain your personal best – aim to run regularly but not so far, not so fast and not so hard that you can’t talk.
What maternity fitness wear should I choose?
The FittaMamma High Support Pregnancy Exercise Top is perfect for high impact pregnancy exercise such as running – it will hold your bump securely and help lift the weight of your baby bump onto your back and shoulders where you’re naturally stronger. The top features a firm panel that sits snug around your hips to provide additional support around your pelvis and the fabric includes CoolDry moisture wicking content. Team it with supportive three-quarter length maternity running pants – the FittaMamma Supportive Maternity Capris are ideal. Don’t forget a well-fitting sports bra too!
Layer the High Support Top with the a vest top from the FittaMamma ‘Me & My Baby Range’ – the ‘Running Together’ vest will tell the world you feel good about your fit pregnancy!
Cycling during pregnancy
There’s no reason to give up cycling during pregnancy, although ease up on the pace if road racing is your preferred option! Like any other pregnancy exercise the mantra is ‘not so far and not so fast’! Avoid hard-core mountain biking or riding in a pack and don’t be shy about jumping off and pushing your bike up a hill if it feels too steep.
Which pregnancy fitnesswear is best for cycling?
FittaMamma have some cute above the knee maternity support cycle shorts that provide support for your bump and lower back. Team them the Pregnancy Workout Support Top which will hold your baby bump securely whilst still allowing plenty of freedom of movement.
