Take it to the park
Body weight exercises such as squats, lunges and push ups (elevated or on knees if pregnant to protect the core) can be completed with zero equipment and still work all the major muscles in the body building strength and endurance as well as cardiovascular fitness. If you don’t have a park locally or are a little self-conscious to exercise in a public space, you can always take the session to your garden or get a friend involved for extra motivation and support.
Pack a resistance band
Resistance bands are easy to carry on the go and can be used for a range of exercises to help build strength and improve posture. They’re ideal for popping into your bag or under the push chair on a walk and squeezing in a quick full body strengthening workout. This added resistance is not only beneficial for the muscles but also the joints.
Fresh water swimming has grown in popularity during lockdown with many reporting life changing benefits. The cold, fresh water may not be suitable for you during pregnancy as there are very little studies on its safety, but some leisure facilities have outdoor pools that are far safer and cleaner with easier exit routes and staffed by lifeguards. Swimming can help ease pregnancy related aches and pains, reduce swelling and is gentle on the joints while helping maintain endurance, stamina, and muscular strength.
