How to Build a Strong Core during Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an especially important time to strengthen and support the core, but probably not in the ways that traditionally come to mind. Appropriate and proper core training during pregnancy typically won’t include sit-ups, crunches or lots of planking.

When we talk about strengthening the core, we are referring not just to the abs or that six pack, but to all the stabilizers and muscles that produce movement from the shoulders to the pelvis stabilizing our spine and allow it to move optimally.
