Niche Workout Routines
Niche workout routines are specific workout routines that you do in case you may be sick, undergoing treatment or when you are pregnant. These workouts ensure you to do specific exercise routines that will help you to become strong and flexible.
There are certain specific workout exercises a pregnant woman has to do daily. The simplest exercise she can do is the arm and upper back stretch.
These exercise routines are quite easy and must be done on a daily basis. The reason for these daily exercises is because, for a pregnant woman, the body expands and she gains weight more than she is accustomed to. Therefore, the exercises will help her body adjust comfortably to the new weight.
First, raise your arms above your head, keeping your elbow straight and have the palms of your hands facing each other. Stay in this position for the next 20 seconds.
Next, lower your arms out, away from your body to your sides. Ensure you have kept your back straight. Lastly, bring out your hands behind your back and stretch them as far as possible. These exercises help you ease those back pains that are so common during pregnancy.
The other important exercise to do for a pregnant woman is the one that will help you maintain good posture. This is called the pelvic kilt.
A pelvic kilt is an exercise that helps you strengthen your abdominal muscles, so that you do not get back pain. For this exercise, you need to bend your knees after lying on your back. Tighten your stomach and that muscle found on your buttocks.
Do this by inhaling deeply through your nose. Then flatten your back on the floor, and let your pelvis tilt upward. Exhale slowly as you count to five.
Do not do any more of the same exercise until you have relaxed and you have gotten your breath back. Perform these exercises daily and you will endure a less stressful pregnancy.
