Exercise during pregnancy has become more popular during the last 10 years than it had previously (Brown, 2002; Mudd et al, 2009). As a result, the intensity and duration of physical activity (PA) performed by women with uncomplicated pregnancies is now arguably greater. The current guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians Gynaecologists (ACOG) encourage women to exercise without restriction for 30min on all or most days of the week (as per the population general), although no specific upper limits of intensity, duration and frequency are specified. As a result, most recommendations err on the side of moderate intensity for uncomplicated pregnancies. The type of exercise able to be performed safely does not have any restriction according to ACOG (2002), although there remains ambiguity over whether or not weight bearing activity is safe, particularly amongst less informed / educated populations (Mudd et al, 2009).
