I’m currently pregnant and my doctor is telling me not to work my abs. What can I do?
Unfortunately, many doctors only think of working your abdominals by doing crunches. Your ‘core’ makes up so much more than just your abdominals. The core doesn't just refer to your abdominals. Your core includes all the muscles that attach to your pelvis, spine and ribs. A strong core helps to protect your body, as well as connects your arms and legs to your torso, ensuring your body can work well as a unit. There are so many different ways to work your core without ever doing a crunch. I’ll train you in a way that will keep your body safe, while maintaining strength to help prepare you for the demands placed on your body. You also want to maintain a neutral alignment to the best of your ability when pregnant, and work on your core will help keep you feeling supported.
