Posture is key during pregnancy. Workouts that may have been routine before, may need a little reassessment based on how your body is changing. We chatted with physical therapist and core specialist Solange Ross, founder of NYC-based Complete Core on the best way to engage our pelvic core to prep for our workouts.
“Your body is going through a lot of changes during pregnancy. These changes include increased blood volume, increase in pregnancy hormones, weight gain, changes in the curves of the spine, change in center of mass, and pregnancy related aches and pains,” says Ross. “We feel these changes in the muscles supporting our pelvis and rib cage. Doing this routine will prime your postural system. It gives the smaller muscles that stabilize the spine, pelvis and rib cage an opportunity to work in targeted exercises, so they become more active in total body, dynamic movements. The foundation will give you the sense of your inner postural system working from front to back, providing stability.”
