I have read somewhere that while pregnant, try to keep your heart rate under ___________bpm while working out. But for the life of me, I cannot find where I read that! Any ideas/recommendations you have heard?
I am in my first trimester and I know that I can continue to do things I was doing prior to getting KU but I don't want to push myself too far. I have a HR monitor and would try to do HIIT training prior, with my heart rate reaching 165-170bpm while really pushing. I *think* the number I previously read was around 140bpm max but wanted to double check/get additional opinions.
Re: HR while Pg
When you exercise, follow these general guidelines for a safe and healthy exercise program:
I continued with my existing workouts, and my body clearly said HELL NO when it was time to dial it down. I would get light headed or nauseous or I could feel my heart pounding to hard. If that happened, I took it down a notch or stopped if needed before continuing. Especially in the first trimester. I just listened to my body throughout the entire pregnancy and was fine.
