Pregnancy exercise: Consistency is key

You don’t need to embark on an intense, time-consuming exercise programme in pregnancy.

It is much better to do little and often for the whole nine months, than do regular, long workouts for three months and then stop. If you stop exercising all those fab benefits will be lost.

Try to do your daily bum, tum and pelvic floor exercises and if you can within the course of a week 2 or 3 cardio sessions and 2 or 3 resistance sessions. If you can only do 15-20 minutes each time that’s much better than nothing.

Having a toddler and a full-time job I truly appreciate how busy life is, but if you want good results you have to put the effort in. Nothing in life comes for free so make a commitment to your exercise now.

Keep your goals realistic; this is the time for maintenance, not intense training. Try to embrace and work with your changing body. Remember if you follow the 3-Plan you can do this in chunks to suit you.
