This is my first client and she is slightly overweight, She has not been exercising too much and is mow wanting to start.
I am just curious about the safety of reverse crunches, planks, and what alternatives you would suggest for general core work…
Also, what about exercising in the supine position during the second trimester?
You’ve gotten some good advice already on obtaining medical clearance first and finding appropriate exercises. I’d just like to add that her doctor may want her to keep her heart rate within a certain range, so you may want to inquire about that as well as any other restrictions. Also, it will be very important for your client to listen to her body during exercise as she may tire easily.
