Concept 10 10 Training is not only “OK” to perform during pregnancy; in my opinion it is the perfect preparation for pregnancy. It is so well suited to prepare for pregnancy that I feel it should become the “standard of care” for pre-partum and perinatal preparation.
In certain exceptions such as pre-eclampsia or preterm labor the training would have to be discontinued; but in the vast majority of cases it is neglectful to not train. To go into pregnancy not availing yourself of this prenatal care, in my opinion, is much worse than having the occasional glass of wine or cup of coffee.
The risk to the fetus and mother from a difficult labor as a result of poor muscular condition are much greater than the risks that all mothers currently take much more seriously. Someday I hope it will be considered medically and socially unacceptable to not perform High Intensity Training in preparation for pregnancy and labor.
