Weight lifting is a great way to stay fit during pregnancy and provides benefits after your child is born. The goal during your pregnancy should be maintenance and not dramatic gains. It is best to go over your exercise regimen with your physician first. Use lighter weights and more repetitions during pregnancy. Never exercise to the point of exhaustion or breathlessness. Stop exercising immediately if you experience any of the following: vaginal bleeding, difficulty breathing especially while resting, dizziness, headache, chest pain, muscle weakness, calf pain or swelling, preterm labor, decreased fetal movement, and fluid leaking from your vagina. Check with your physician to discuss the risks and benefits of weight lifting during your pregnancy. Updated: 03.08.21
