The Perfect Pregnancy Workout volume 1 5

I alternate this one and the yoga workout (Perfect Pregnancy Workout vol.2). I'm in my 31st week and it really makes a big difference. When I take a day off, I start to tighten up. Two days off and I'm hurting. It's actually good, though, because it gives me a great reward when I exercise. And anything that will make bouncing back afterward is a wonderful thing. I saw Karyne Steben's abs on her website. MY abs didn't look THAT good before I got pregnant. I don't expect to get those kind of results 8 weeks after delivery, but I hope that doing her (and her sister's) workouts will make labor easier and get me back to seeing my toes again soon after!

I consider myself to have a reasonable level of fitness and flexibility. I purchased this DVD based on the positive reviews posted on Amazon but I was disappointed and concerned when I tried the workout myself.
Some of the exercises seemed unsafe especially the abdominal crunches, lunges, squats & push-ups (even the modified versions) when you consider the hypermobility of joints and centre of gravity changes in pregnancy.
The instructor doesn't appear to grasp the concept that not every woman was a superfit trapeze artist prior to pregnancy. From what I can tell she does not have any formal qualifications in prenatal fitness, but rather developed this exercise program based on her own needs and level of fitness. On the positive the warm-up it very good.
Erin O'Brien's Pregnancy Fitness Fix (for more experienced exercisers) or Leisa Hart's FitMama (more moderate intensity) appeared to be safer but still higly effective options.

I love to workout and recently got the clear from my dr. for exercise. This is one of the first dvds that I've bought, and I really love it. It really gives you a good workout that seems to work most if not every muscle in your body. I highly recommend it and can already tell that in juat a few weeks of using this dvd along with Prenatal Yoga with Shiva Rea and Prenatal Fitness Fix with Erin O'Brien that I'm firming up. I'm feeling much better and more energized too!

I followed the video did as she did and I was hurting for the whole next week. I think people should try this video if they are already very much so in shape like the instructor is.

This is my third pregnancy, and I've bought a different workout video for each one. I finally found one that is not cheesy, not too hard or intimidating, and not too vague in directions. It is very straight forward and easy to follow, yet it challenges you appropriately. My sister and my mother-in-law (neither of who are pregnant) have done this workout with me and complained about how sore they were the next day! They thought it was great. I normally give up on videos after doing them a couple of times, but I always look forward to doing this one and I always feel great about myself afterwards. She gives a very good intro speech about how to do the exercises the correct way, how to tell if your stomach muscles have separated and how to modify if they have, etc. Even when I don't feel like doing it, I am still compelled to start the video just because I want to watch her! She is amazingly fit! She wears this little spandex outfit that proudly displays her belly and she just looks so good! Also she is not bubbly, loud or annoying like some video instructors are. She is very soothing and positive in a very non-annoying way. I will probably continue to use this video even after I have my baby!

I haven't worked out in a few months and this was a great way to get back on track. She shows you variations for different levels for all the exercises. It's easy to follow and a great workout. By looking at her body during the video it keeps you motivated!
