    This month, our special guest bloggers, Lilah Al-Masri, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, and Simon Bartlett, PhD, CSCS, ATC, authors of 100 Questions and Answers about Sports Nutrition & Exercise, offer expert insights on nutrition during pregnancy.

Although no two pregnancies are the same, most women find that they tend to experience many of the same symptoms from one pregnancy to the next.

    This month, our special guest bloggers, Lilah Al-Masri, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, and Simon Bartlett, PhD, CSCS, ATC, authors of 100 Questions and Answers about Sports Nutrition & Exercise, offer expert insights on pre-pregnancy exercise.

    Women considering becoming pregnant can benefit greatly by engaging in regular cardiorespiratory and strength training exercise. The following provides an effective pre- pregnancy aerobic and strength training routine for women that is easy to administer, requires minimal time and equipment, and confers important mental and physical benefits for the mother-to-be. In order to maximize the benefits from the workouts, the program should begin at least three months prior to pregnancy and be done consistently with good technique. This sample workout is not all-inclusive; women, who are already engaged in a regular workout routine, should continue their workouts with modifications as the pregnancy progresses. However, for women who are not engaged in a regular workout program, the sample provided below is an excellent place to start and will offer numerous benefits to both mother and fetus. *Note – Before beginning a workout program, discuss the plan with your health care provider.
