Physical education classes of

At the normal course of pregnancy physical activity is as necessary as a sufficient dream or good nutrition. For this reason future mothers are recommended to master special gymnastic complexes which not only will bring benefit to health, but also will help to be prepared for childbirth.

during pregnancy and childbirth intra belly pressure sharply increases and that to constrain it, strong, elastic muscles of an abdominal tension and pelvic bottom are necessary, the women who are going in for physical culture during pregnancy have hypostases and extensions on skin of a stomach and hips much less often.

Regular trainings help formation of the correct breath necessary with labor, prepare warmly - vascular system for the raised loadings, increase inflow of blood to vessels of a uterus and a placenta that provides the best supply of oxygen and nutrients to a fruit. Physical training reduces risk of complications (bleedings, weakness of patrimonial activity, etc.) it helps to be restored quicker after the delivery. At last, exercises is a powerful psychotherapeutic factor thanks to which it is possible to avoid a depression during pregnancy and after the delivery.

Skills of physical training are necessary for

and at the time of delivery as during the most responsible period of childbirth - attempts muscles of the giving birth woman are actively involved. One of necessary skills in the labor acquired when performing special exercises for pregnant women is ability to strain one groups of muscles, completely weakening others.

When the risk exceeds advantage?

Adequate physical activity is necessary for

not only healthy pregnant women. The reasonable, dosed gymnastics is appointed even to women with serious chronic diseases: diabetes, hypertensive illness, pathology of kidneys, hearts, thyroid gland. However there is a number of states at which any gymnastics is absolutely contraindicated.

K to them belong:

Krom of the established diagnoses, exist signs at which emergence it is necessary to stop immediately training and if they appear during each occupation, then at all to refuse gymnastics:

Before starting occupations, it is necessary to get support of the gynecologist observing you.

a choice Problem

Approach to occupations has to be individual and first of all depend on what level of preparation you had before pregnancy.

to the Trained women the level of physical activity right after establishment of the fact of pregnancy needs to be lowered on a third. There are sports, occupation which during pregnancy it is extremely undesirable. First of all, it is injury-causing sports, all game sports, also jumps and vibration, a raising of weights over 3 kg and smaller above a humeral belt are contraindicated. Optimum sports are walking, swimming, cross-country skis.

Krom of these classical sports, also the special techniques adapted for pregnant women exist.

the Gymnastics on a fitball - a big gymnastic ball - trains sense of equilibrium, coordination of movements, allows to train those groups of muscles which when performing usual exercises are not involved. At the same time the muscles which are not involved when performing exercises remain weakened that allows to avoid overfatigue.

Pilates - a set of exercises for all body which develops flexibility and mobility, called by name the developer of this system Joseph Pilates. Exercises strengthen the deep muscles fixing normal position of a backbone and internals. Carry to such muscles okolopozvonochny, muscles of an abdominal tension, a pelvic bottom, a waist. Thanks to continuous trainings the woman manages to avoid the back pains connected with the shift of the center of gravity of a body at increase in term of pregnancy, Besides, Pilates promotes increase in tensile properties of tissues of crotch, “disclosure“ of coxofemoral joints - to relaxation of sheaves that allows a joint to work in bigger amplitude, and also trains in the isolated tension of muscles of an abdominal tension, i.e. the skills necessary in labor.

of the Yogi. Occupations by yoga are directed to formation of a bearing, strengthening and an extension of the articulate and copular device, and also to restoration of psychoemotional balance, strengthening of nervous system. The yoga improves blood circulation, helps to cope with fatigue, hypostases, headaches and locks, is the cornerstone of any respiratory gymnastics and the technician of relaxation (relaxation). Asanas (special poses) of yoga promote a backbone pulling, relaxation and an extension of muscles of a basin, strengthening of muscles of an abdominal tension, “disclosure“ of coxofemoral joints, etc.

If you before pregnancy did not play sports regularly (2 - 3 times a week), then your choice has to stop on special occupations for pregnant women: physiotherapy exercises, improving swimming, respiratory and relaxation trainings. Ideal option are individual trainings with the instructor. Special groups are more available to future mothers. It is good if the structure of such group is constant and uniform in pregnancy term.

Approach to occupations has to be individual and first of all depend on what level of preparation you had before pregnancy.

during occupations needs to avoid an overheat and dehydration. The room for occupations has to be well aired, but without drafts, optimum temperature about 20 º S. Sleduyet to avoid trainings in stuffy and damp rooms, and also to put on too warmly. The correct breath is of great importance: you breathe slowly, a nose, a breath do exercises at an intense stage, exhaled - on relaxation. Classes should be given in two hours after and for an hour to food.
