 by: Ashley Wilson



Hello everyone! I am writing this article to all of the women out there that are pregnant. A lot of women when they are pregnant are worried about exercise. Pregnant women worry about the extra weight the are adding. Often times though, pregnant woman also just don't like to sit around and want to get up and get moving. I often find that these women ask which type of exercises are best when it comes to pregnancy. Well not to worry! With this list, I am going to present the top 5 exercises that can be done during a pregnancy. I hope these tips will help you. With that let's get right to the list.

1. Swimming

This is the best exercise in my opinion that can be performed while you are pregnant. When you swim, you are really working your muscles and getting a workout. However, you are just in a pool of water, and face little chance of injury to your body. You also get to feel weightless, which is a feeling pregnant women really appreciate!

2. Dancing 

This is another great exercise for when you are pregnant. Dancing is a great way to exercise. You can get a great work-out and it's fun to dance to your favorite tunes! You can even do this by yourself if you are all alone. Just make sure not to breakdance or anything where you might risk injury!

3. Walking 

Walking is very simple, but is still one of the most popular ways to exercise. By taking a simple walk around the neighborhood you can get fresh air, experience the sights and smells of the neighborhood, and of course, get a good work-out. It usually works best if you are walking with another person. If you don't have someone to walk with, try bringing an MP3 player or radio to listen to. Without anything to keep you company during your walk, you will quickly get bored.

4. Exercise Bike

Not as many people own exercise bikes as they used to, but for those that do, this is another great way to exercise while your pregnant. It can really give you a good workout, and you pretty much stay in the same spot. Just make sure to listen to some music or watch a TV show. This makes it a lot easier! If you don't have an exercise bike, a regular bicycle is an option, however you should be very careful.

5. Yoga Class 

Have you ever tried Yoga? If not, how come? Yoga is a great way to relax and exercise. In fact, many places offer specific yoga classes for those that are pregnant. In addition to exercising, this is also a great way to meet other pregnant moms and make new friends.

I hope you enjoyed my list of the top 5 pregnancy exercises. These exercises are all great for your body, and can work well at limiting the weight gain. In addition, by getting yourself in better shape, you are also getting yourself in better shape for the delivery of your baby. Good luck!
