I knew I wanted incoporate exercise into my weekly routine during my pregnancy for several reasons. It is a way to prepare for childbirth, maintain a healthy weight gain and be able to bounce back even faster after childbirth. Once the weather gets warmer I plan to take my workouts out on the local walking trail!
L.O.V.E. this workout series. There is a different DVD for each Trimester which was really important to me. This workout involves some weight lifting and cardio. I really like the combo of the two. You will definitely feel the burn! There is also a Post Natal bootcamp DVD included! How fabulous!
Yoga for your pregnancy.
Yoga was something I knew I wanted to practice during pregnancy for several reasons. It is a great way to practice relaxation, build strength and stamina for the demands of labor, and release tension. This DVD definitely covers all those areas. There are 3 instructors showing different ways to do the exercises, so no matter where you are in your pregnancy you will be able to participate. I practice yoga on T, TH.
Denise Austin: Fit & Firm Pregnancy
I’m not impressed with this DVD at all. I barely felt as if I accomplished anything by the end of the 20 minute cardio workout. It does include 2 different toning workouts for the 2nd & 3rd trimesters. There is also a bonus Post Workout Bounce Back DVD. I maybe did this workout 3 times and then switched to just doing Pregnancy Fitness on M,W,F.
