No easy answer: This is very much dependent on what your like to do, or are at least willing to tolerate, "exercise wise" and any physical or medical limitations that you might have and what your time schedule and access to "equipment" allows. The generic answer, is choose the program you are most likely to stick with in the long run: consistency is most important.

Dr. Megan Bird

Yes: You should keep active throughout your pregnancy. Just about everyone can exercise during pregnancy. Yoga and walking are good for those who are not used to exercise. You can continue almost any exercise during pregnancy. If you have medical or pregnancy complications, you should ask your doctor before exercising.

Does your body get used to the fitness if you run every night?

Yes!: You will accommodate and will not have to work as hard so you will not get as good of a workout. I am a big advocate of hiit (high intensity interval training) and recommend you add hill work or some sprints to your workout to challenge yourself - 30 sec sprint with 90 sec jog works well x 8. This workout also enhances natural secretion of growth hormone and increases your resting metabolism.

How can I use an exercise app to prevent cravings?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Seema Patel

Not sure: Your question is not very clear. Craving for what? Food exercise, etc? Usually cravings are caused by repeated use of a substance, i.E caffeine, chocolate, etc; your body gets used to this; the best thing is to wean yourself off. You can go cold turkey or slow wean. Drink water because most things are dehydrating, chart to see triggers: menstrual cycle, moods, weather etc to prepare yourself.

How can muscle imbalances keep me from reaching fitness?

Dr. James Henning

Through Injuries!: Unless i'm missing something in your question, muscle imbalances (differences in strength) may cause undo strain on supporting structures when lifting. Nerves and nerve roots can by compressed accidentally by inappropriate twisting in order to hoist weight. This is dangerous and should be scrupulously avoided by trying to strengthen all muscle groups similarly.
