The workout itself is about 45 minutes long, and is composed of a brief warm-up, a lot of ab work, some side lying ab work, some leg and glute lifts and squeezes, and then two series of arm exercises, one without weights and one with light weights, and then it finishes with a cool down and stretch. The workout is definitely challenging, even for a more experienced student, but not overwhelmingly hard.
The greatest thing about both this post-natal workout and Tracy's Mat Workout is that they are fun - the time flies by - and they leave you feeling strong, a bit sore, but totally refreshed. I am actually disappointed if I can't find the time to workout - definitely no "dread-factor" here! Highly recommended - Thank You Tracy!
- Great encouraging tone and instruction
- New ab, leg and arm exercised that I was not familiar with
- Seems like it is going to be effective (since I could feel my muscles while doing it)
- Classical music in the background rather than obnoxious techno or pop
What you need to know before purchasing:
- You need 3 lb weights. (I did it without them, but Tracy uses them on and off in the video)
- No cardio
- The actual workout (including warm-up and cool-down) is around 50 minutes.
I am filled with regret over having purchased this DVD. Please don't make the mistake I did. Talk to a pelvic floor specialist and get evaluated before going through this workout. If I had any idea of the risks before I never would have risked this!

Tracy Anderson is off the mark with this one. She keeps suggesting that by working out your abs intensely you can return to your pre-– pregnancy body. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ana

|Does this workout help those with a diastasis recti separation?||
I too have a diastasis and I have stayed away from crunches completely as advised by Julie Tupler but I wasn't getting my abs back in shape either. In fairness to Ms Tupler, I didn't stick with her recommendation of 1000 reps a day. SO I decided what the heck, I may as well have tight abs and a... Read More
