Release the pressure of consistently creating new quality content every week with the Health scoop.

Getting back to pre-pregnancy fitness levels for strength and endurance is not easy. It can take a lot of effort over a long period of time. That’s totally natural and expected!

A recent study looked at the fitness levels of hundreds of active-duty soldiers before and after their pregnancies. It found that core strength and endurance can take several months to years (!) before they are back to their pre-pregnancy levels.

We want our clients and patients to know that this is totally normal—even for healthy, fit active-duty soldiers—so they’re not too hard on themselves, but still motivating them to keep working toward their fitness goals.

Introducing a done-for-you pre-written Health scoop (new study update) to share this information with your clients and patients along with a few practical tips.

About the study:

  • This study shows that even when healthy, fit active-duty soldiers get pregnant it can take several months—or years—for them to regain their previous fitness levels.
  • These are normal physiological changes due to pregnancy.
  • This particular study is a retrospective cohort study that reviewed fitness test records for 460 active-duty soldiers before and after their pregnancies. 
  • Note that all studies have limitations. That’s why it’s important to look at multiple studies, giving more weight to the ones that have a better design to answer the questions being asked. This study didn’t look at the soldiers’ diets, exercise habits, or sleep.
  • This is a pretty strong observational study, but not quite as strong as a randomized control trial (which would be even better than observational because it would be experimental). 
  • This study included soldiers from a variety of racial, socioeconomic, and age backgrounds, but unlike the general population, they were provided fitness programs and were expected to maintain their fitness every 6 months before pregnancy, as well as post-pregnancy
  • A study strength of 5/7 according to this chart: https://www.compoundchem.com/2015/04/09/scientific-evidence/
