Looking for ideas for cardio during pregnancy? Try these bodyweight prenatal cardio focused exercises that you can do in the comfort of your own home or take it outside. This cardio pregnancy safe workout will keep your whole body strong through pregnancy. These are also diastasis friendly pregnancy cardio moves to protect your core.
I love working the body in different ways. During pregnancy it can be challenging at times to find safe exercises that keep me strong but also don’t put extra pressure on the belly.
Even during pregnancy you can get some good cardio in that gives your heart and lungs a good workout without overdoing it of course. Depending on your fitness level you can make these exercises easier or harder. Always listen to your body as each pregnancy is different. Other great cardio pregnancy ideas are walking and swimming, but I wanted to incorporate other cardio moves too. In case you can’t go for a walk or get to a pool.
These exercise moves are great to do during any trimester. During the third trimester, though, it’s best not to over do it and make sure to incorporate lots of walking and moves to prepare you for labor (I am working on a post soon about what I am doing to prepare for labor). Limit your jumping or do modifications for jumping exercises. This will also help with preventing diastasis.
