Br J Obstet Gynaecol ; The SWA uses these sensors via the use of proprietary algorithms to predict the energy expenditure. The evaluation of multiple guidelines, the use of an objective monitor that has been evaluated for use in pregnancy, and the longitudinal design contribute novel research findings regarding the assessment of prenatal physical activity.

SWA data was not available for 11 women at week 18 and some of these women may have exercised during their pregnancy.

These two studies demonstrate that how the guideline is interpreted influences the number of women meeting the ACOG recommendations.

Conclusions The amount of time pregnant women spend in moderate-vigorous physical activity or volitional exercise varies drastically depending upon what guideline is used.

The armband data files were processed and evaluated using six different physical activity guidelines. Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription. Published online Feb 5.

The guidelines included 1 minutes of accumulated moderate-vigorous physical activity MVPA [ 2111719 ], 2 minutes of MVPA performed in periods of at least 10 minutes [ 12 ], 3 minutes of MVPA performed for at least 10 minutes with 1 minute of vigorous activity equivalent to 2 minutes of moderate activity M2VPA [ 8 ], 4 at least 3 sessions of MVPA [ 724 ] sustained for at least 30 minutes at a time [ 141623 ], 5 at least 5 sessions of MVPA sustained for at least minutes at a time [ 131520 ], and 6 at least MET minutes accumulated throughout the week [ 18 ].

This allowed compendiuj physical activity of at least moderate intensity to be detected by an objective monitor and eliminated the potential for the recall bias or the incomplete reporting of the physical activity in the physical activity record.


Total minutes of weekly physical activity according to the parameters of each physical activity guideline are described as medians and interquartile ranges IQR. Abstract 2103 guidelines and definitions of physical activity PA have been used to study the benefits of activity during pregnancy. Previous studies have also used accelerometry to assess physical activity during pregnancy, but data were commonly processed for partial days e.

This excluded 2 files at week 18 and 3 files at qcog 35 as previously mentioned in paragraph 2. Women’s Health Care Physicians. Data were evaluated for the second and third trimesters to demonstrate the impact of these guidelines across pregnancy.

A model of physical activity epidemiology reproduced from [ 35 ]. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. The very small differences in minutes of activity between MVPA bouts wk Journal List J Pregnancy v.

Future recommendations should incorporate previous and future findings of improved pregnancy outcomes with specific volumes of physical activity. Average total compendjum activity was drastically reduced by 66 minutes per day when only the activity that lasted for at compsndium a minute bout was counted.

Exercise prescription for healthy populations and special considerations. Furthermore, interventions have used these guidelines as a target level of physical activity for women to engage in during pregnancy in order to promote specific pregnancy outcomes e.

It is possible that a lack of understanding regarding the maternal and fetal benefits of accumulated total activity compwndium the benefits of activity sustained for a minimum period of time e. Results and Discussion 3. Recent advances compenduum understanding maternal and fetal responses to exercise. The compendjum for shorter sustained bouts of activity transpired from a summary of experimental findings in nonpregnant adults suggesting that activity performed at a level of at least moderate intensity and sustained for at least 10 minutes at a time was as effective as single, longer bouts of activity in lowering chronic disease risk [ 9 ].

I am deeply grateful to each member of the Task Force on Hypertension in Pregnancy for their hard work and dedication to this important endeavor.

Physical activity before and during pregnancy and risk of gestational diabetes mellitus: Eighty-nine healthy pregnant women prior to week gestation were enrolled for a larger longitudinal study analyzing the relationship between maternal exercise and fetal docosahexaenoic acid status. In this document, pregnant women previously active and inactive are encouraged to engage in at least minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week.


Consequently, ACOG responded in by eliminating the constraints on heart rate and exercise aog, stating that exercise can be done in moderation but not to exhaustion [ 7 ].

It was not categorized by leisure time activity versus volitional exercise. American Acof of Preventive Medicine. A limitation of the current study is the differing number of women analyzed at week 18 and week 35 of pregnancy. The amount of time pregnant women spend in moderate-vigorous physical activity or volitional exercise varies drastically depending upon what guideline is used. Measuring energy expenditure in habitually active and sedentary pregnant women.

Table 2 Weekly minutes spent in moderate-vigorous physical activity according to multiple guidelines. Nineteen women did not complete the study due to pregnancy complications or personal time constraints.

The amount of PA during pregnancy varied drastically depending on which guideline was used. Furthermore, the use of multiple guidelines has contributed to conflicting evidence regarding the role of physical activity to improve certain pregnancy outcomes, such as healthy gestational weight gain, insulin sensitivity, and preeclampsia.

The monitor was initialized acoog to her height, weight, age, and handedness and placed on her upper left arm per manufacturer’s instructions.

The importance of maternal physical activity dates as far back as the third century BC when Aristotle eluded to the difficulty endured during childbirth as a result of a sedentary maternal lifestyle [ 1 ]. None of qcog authors report any conflict of interests with any of the companies listed in this paper. The world health report:
