Kickboxing While Pregnant

6 Replies
Lora - August 26

I've been doing kickboxing for 2 years before I got pregnant. I am continuing it while pregnant (I'm currently 14 weeks) with a few modifications. I was wondering if anyone else continued to kickbox and what kind of modifications they made? Sit-ups Ok? Hitting the bag hard OK? Jumping OK? etc...

I don't really have an answer but I'm kickboxing too. So far I've only stopped sparring. I've continued with bag cla__ses, weights and cardio kickboxing. I've heard you shouldn't do sit ups after 20 weeks. Have you learned anything since you posted your question? What modifications are you making?

My doctor said it is fine to continue with kickboxing.I am currently at 17 weeks. I try to stay away from sit ups that put me on my back for a long period of time. I alternate with side crunches & leg lifts. I do hit the bag for about 10 minutes of the cla__s. The rest is cardio.

I've been told to not do any excercises that involve bouncing-walking, biking, swimming are o.k. I've also been weight training with lighter weight and higher reps.

I would definetely stop the sit-ups; those are not OK to do anymore.

I am 34 weeks pregnant and still kick boxing. I can't sparr, do sit ups, squat jumps et.c. but I am still doing everything else. My kicks aren't as high but I still mamged to take a grading a few weeks back!
