Stay active and beat the heat this summer!

With the temperature rising above 100 degrees it may be difficult to stay active and healthy, especially during preganancy.  But we have a great way to get your exercise in while staying cool this summer.  Water areobics are great for pregnant woman.  This low impact excercise is that perfect way to stay active and healthy while you beat the heat.  All you really need is a pool, but if you want to get a little more advanced try picking up some water dumbells, kick boards or swim gloves.  Here are a few recommended excercises for the pool:

Running under water can be a great way to exercise.  Beginners may want to start with your feet on the ground and gradually build up to running with out touching the bottom.

Also, standing in the shallow end and holding a noodle above your head as shown in the picture, and then bending from side to side is a great workout.  Just remember to keep the noodle as high up as you can and try to get as close to the water with your elbow as you can.

This next exercise requires the water dumbells.  You stand in water the should come up to about your shoulers.  Hold the dumbells out to your side and push them down to your thighs, and slowly let them rise back to the surface.  You can also do this exercise with your arms out in front.

Just remember that even though you are in the water you are still sweating and need to drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout.
