  • Pregnant on The Bridge

    My wife and I just both came out of LP and started the bridge this week. We just found out shes pregnant. It's very early, but still.

    I have watched the video where you guys (Jordan and Austin) discuss pregnancy and it's clear the answer is to keep training. However there wasn't much info on whether intensity should be dialed down at all.

    My question is would you make any changes to The Bridge at all to account for this? (RPE targets, rep schemes, etc..)

    Thanks!

    Congrats, Timelinex!

    In general, no I wouldn't make any changes. However, because I do not know anything about your wife's obstetrical and other medical history, this may not be appropriate advice for her.

      Thanks! She's young and no medical history, so we will carry on and just listen to her body.

      We did think of 1 other question. She just started using a belt a week ago. I can't imagine using a belt being too safe (especially when she starts showing) She stop using her belt right?

        Why wouldn't it be safe?

        It'll stop fitting soon enough, but in general the belt isn't a huge deal in the first trimester- this may be different for your wife however.
