In this “Rev” episode, I talk about fitness during pregnancy and the differences between my first pregnancy and my current pregnancy; what I am currently focusing on in the gym and how I’m supporting pregnant and postpartum athletes in the gym. I also talk about the mindset shift that is necessary for training during this time, ie: the “Why? Behind training”. I give a little background about my postpartum return to fitness with my first baby, but stay tuned for another REV episode specific to the postpartum period and return to fitness.
Were you active during your pregnancy? What do you *wish* you knew about training while pregnant? Feel free to leave a comment on instagram over at @the_engine_mom.
