MYTH - You should cut back exercise in the last trimester


You might cut down the intensity, but you should remain consistent.

It’s important to continue at a similar RPE throughout the pregnancy.



As long as you have no medical conditions

that prevent exercise, it is safe to continue your exercise program

throughout your pregnancy. Many athletes continue to train during their

pregnancies—even in the third trimester—with no adverse affects. If you

aren’t accustomed to exercise, start slow. It is important not to

exhaust or overheat yourself. Even a brisk walk offers many health

benefits and may ease some of your discomfort.
