Nourish your body regularly
Now that you are “eating for two” (or maybe three or more) during the pregnancy, you will require additional calories to maintain metabolic homeostasis. Planning your meals with additional calories around training times will ensure you meet the energy needs of both the exercise and your pregnancy. Speak with your GP and registered dietitian about the best foods for fuelling you during your pregnancy.
It’s getting HOT in here!
Removing excess heat from your body during pregnancy is important so you should consider a few things such as your:
1) Workout location; is it air-conditioned, outdoors, or fans?
2) Clothing; choose clothing that is breathable and moisture-wicking properties
3) Pre hydration; avoid dehydration by consuming water before exercise and continue to sip regularly.
4) Avoid exercise in hot, humid weather, or if you have a fever.
