Default Re: Exersizes to avoid?? Suggestions

Assuming she was a regular exerciser prior to her pregnancy, the main thing is that she can usually continue her normal exercise routine, bearing in mind she needs to keep her heart rate lower and to avoid overheating (so keep drinking lots of water and don't exercise in a really warm humid place. Obviously exercises where she would be lying flat on her stomach would be contraindicated for obvious reasons.....
As an experienced gym user she should continue at a lower level (without taking it to silly extremes) and listen to her body. I know lots of women who have exercised all the way up to giving birth (some were also doing some fairly serious karate training .... no contact obviously)

However.... if she were not a regular gym user/exerciser now is not the time to start any mad training.... walking and swimming would be the best options in that case...
Hope this is of help
