Training by Trimester Your body works so hard during pregnancy that your blood volume and endurance increase, which in turn elevates your fitness level. Your body changes drastically as you progress in your pregnancy, explains Lindsay Brin, mother of a 5-month-old girl and creator of the trimester-specific DVD series. Plus, your body may stop reaping the benefits of exercise if you do the same workout again and again. To make the most of your workout in each trimester, it s important to focus on those muscles that are most taxed then, in addition to the ones you need to strengthen for the months ahead, says Brin. In the first trimester, that means focusing on your core, which includes your hips, back, pelvic floor and, most importantly, your deepest abdominal muscle, the transverse abdominis. Your pelvic floor and your transverse support your baby like a sling, so you want them to stay strong, Brin explains. --Fit Pregnancy Magazine

Super Mom: Now is the time to strengthen the muscles you ll need most as a new mother As a mom-to-be, you have some experience carrying around extra weight. Your expanding baby bump is proof of that. But you ll soon be faced with the daily task of toting your growing newborn and all her gear. To help prepare your body for the constant lifting and holding to come, now is the time to strengthen the muscles you ll use most as a new mom.

According to prenatal and postnatal fitness expert Lindsay Brin, B.S.E., creator of momsintofitness.com the most important muscles for expectant moms to strengthen are the core (primarily the abdominals and back), biceps, shoulders and quadriceps. Simple movements like standing up from a chair or the floor with your baby in your arms require powerful core and quadriceps, she explains.

Plus, having a new baby means doing the same things over and over (and over!) again. Just think about how many times you ll mimic a bicep curl by lifting your baby s car seat, says Brin. You can protect your neck and upper body from the strain caused by nursing or holding your baby by strengthening your shoulders and upper and lower back. Brin exclusively designed a workout for Fit Pregnancy... --Fit Pregnancy Magazine

This is a pretty good and challenging video. She uses weights (2 sets) and demonstrates a variety of strength training exercises, with 2 back-up pregos using lighter weights for demonstration. Though they are good moves, the video doesn't always cut to a correlating shot of "how to do it" immediately. Sort of odd, and so 1/2 way through your reps you realize you've been doing it wrong--not every move though.

Also, there are brief intervals of cardio thrown in which I found to be somewhat lackluster. A lot of marching in place and grapevine type moves.

My last complaint (which could totally just be my own reaction, or my prego state of mind) but I find Lindsay Brin a little annoying. She is ultra perky and keeps talking about your "bun" which I found annoying. In order to buy a workout DVD and do it repeatedly, you really have to like the person teaching it, and unfortunately this instructor grated my nerves.

I purchased four exercise DVDs to do during my pregnancy, and this is one of my favorites. My other favorite is Autumn Calabrese's 9 Months of Fitness. Both of these are really great workouts and offer a mix of strength and cardio. This one has a bonus yoga workout with great exercises for stretching as well. The workout is challenging, but does not feel overwhelming. I only have one complaint about this video, and that is the instructor insists on referring to your glutes as "buncakes". This is so annoying and cheesy. Other than that, it's a great workout, and I highly recommend it.

This is an incredibly safe and effective first trimester workout. I haven't tried the others yet as I am in first trimester. Lindsay knows what safety modifications are important to make for a pregnant woman's body, but she still works you out properly.

Some people have complained about some of the exercises feeling awkward, especially the curtsies, and they will only if you are using poor form. Ideally you should start this video before you become pregnant (as it is also intended for pre-pregnancy) to master the forms correctly but of course it doesn't always work out that way. In that case you should spend some time practicing lunges using the correct form (put the weight through the heel of the front/supporting leg). I used to have issues with lunges due to bad knees until I figured out the proper form. Now I have absolutely no knee pain and my knees are actually stronger than they used to be. Once basic lunges are mastered the curtsies are very easy, and since you're going back at an angle you have more balance with a wider stance.

One of the things I'm most pleased about with this video are the core exercises. Lindsay is very careful not to overwork your core muscles and uses exercises that are appropriate for a pregnant woman. I say this after comparing them to the ab exercises in the Summer Sanders workout which are flat out unsafe (but the rest of the exercises are good).

You can't really go wrong with this workout as long as you pay attention to proper form and listen to your body. Also, the yoga segment is great, stretches out all the muscles that need it and really help you to feel better. The yoga is a bit harder to finish if you are suffering from morning sickness, but that goes for any floorwork or exercises where your head isn't looking straight forward (if you're like me).

I exercised with Lindsay Brin's Prenatal DVDs throughout my recent pregnancy. I highly recommend any of Lindsay's videos, as her workouts helped me to have more energy and feel better than any of my other pregnancies. Because her program is targeted to specific trimester needs, I always found the program to be exactly what I needed. The first trimester program is challenging, while keeping the exercises appropriate for mom and baby. (I found many other prenatal videos to be too easy this early along.) Lindsey's positive, upbeat demeanor makes it easy to keep on track. I tried many other prenatal programs; but, Lindsey's is the only one I kept coming back to; the only one I looked forward to doing in the mornings. My baby is now 2 1/2 weeks old, and as soon as my doctor OK's working out again I plan on using Lindsay's Boot Camp 2 workout to regain my pre-pregnancy figure.

OK, I recommend all 3 trimester workouts. I was able to get a workout that got my heart pumping, but it was never too much, these DVDs are really well done to give you a safe prenatal workout. I'm 4.5 months postpartum now, and am back to my pre-pregnancy weight! I know that doing the prenatal workouts kept me from gaining too much weight, and made it easier to get back into working out regularly (with her Boot Camp!) since I didn't take a 9 month workout break. I felt energetic, not exhausted, after these workouts. Good to see real pregnant women on these videos, too.
