DR. DAVE'S FITNESS QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK

Can I exercise while I am pregnant?

Absolutely. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that pregnant women get 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic exercise every week. Regular exercise during pregnancy helps in these key ways: reduces back pain, eases constipation, promotes healthy weight gain and may decrease the risk of gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and cesarean delivery. Lifting light weights is okay as long as you don’t do any exercise on your back after the first trimester and avoid overstretching any muscles.
