Exercising burns calories. If you’re going to do it, then you have to get enough calories to strengthen your body and nourish it.

  • Avoid these exercises

When can I start working out when pregnant?

Preg Workout

Most women tend to wait until the second trimester to workout, when morning sickness and tiredness have improved. However, you can workout before that if you have no specific problem with your pregnancy. You have to note that, pregnancy is not the time to begin vigorous or strenuous activity that your body isn’t used to. You have to keep it low and short.
