Pilates Training. Women in Dubai and Abu Dhabi who want to train and start new exercise regimes when pregnant need to do so with care. However, there are plenty of exercise types available which are considered both safe for mother and baby and also recommended.
You should always seek medical advice and also use the services of a professional pre and post natal personal trainer in the UAE when exercising during your pre natal trimesters.
The answer is absolutely, doing pilates in Dubai is a great way to strengthen the core and the tummy and also the back and the pelvic floor.
These muscles have a big role during pregnancy as the body has extra pressure and weight on the joints.
Pilates can help with lower back back, improve weak pelvic floor strength and balance and also helps to reduce stress and relax the body with the deep breathing technique during the exercises.
The first and the last trimester is the hardest always when it comes to exercises during pregnancy in the UAE. But the there is so many options always for modify the exercises for a pregnant client.
After the fist trimester, we should avoid doing exercises that put to much pressure on the rectus abdominus. Exercises like lifting the chest up from the floor and crunch.
Also after the first trimester we should avoid spending too much time lying on the back, and also lying on the tummy.
For this the solution is modified Pilates based exercises in kneeling position for example.
There are only a few Pilates exercises should be avoid and modified during pregnancy in the UAE. These include:
Pilates plank and push ups can be performed until late during the pregnancy but it does depend of the strength level as the pelvis has to be lifted to support the belly.
This exercise can also be modified with a hoover plan position
I recommend my prenatal clients in Dubai do Pilates 2-3 times a week. But it is also depends on the client fitness level.
If they have been very active before pregnancy there is no harm to continue with moderate exercise 4-5 times a week with a good mix of Pilates, resistance and cardio training.
My top recommendations for Pilates for pregnant women are:
Pelvic Tilts – helps to strengthen the lower back
The Bridge – This exercise helps to stretch the hips and strengthen the back and hamstrings
Tight Stretch – Strengthens abdominal muscles, lower back and buttocks
Upper Back Stretch – Will help to improve posture and stretches the back and chest
Plank – Strengthens the shoulders, abdominal muscles and tightens the pelvic floor
