A pregnant woman’s body will change more in nine months than a man’s will in his entire lifetime. In this video training, Farel Hruska, pre and postnatal fitness expert and mother of three, will explain how training this very special population can have profound effects on the mother’s health and her baby's experience in utero, with potential lifelong affects for both.
- The various considerations per trimester to train her effectively
- How progress and regress exercises based on musculoskeletal shifts
- How to create programming based on her prenatal, and soon-to-be-mom, needs
Very informative and engaging!
Unfortunately, information is a little dated. Also, she recommended crunches and wood choppers for pregnant women without mentioning "coning" or Diastasis Recti concerns once. There is some good information here, but I would look elsewhere first for advice on training pregnant women.
