I'm 7 months pregnant, and highly recommend Suzanne Bowen's Long and Lean Prenatal Work Out (even if you are not pregnant). Finally, a prenatal dvd that actually tones the body without jerking!! You definitely "feel the burn," without feeling like you're hurting the baby.
My favorite section is the stretching. It totally relaxes and stretches out my pregnancy hip aches. The music is meditative and inspiring. I feel totally de-stressed and focused on loving my baby and body.
Another plus, a hidden surprise, there's a postnatal work out. Also, I love that I can do the work out with just the music, which helps me focus even more.
I couldn't get through the rest of my pregnancy without this! I get people commenting on how fit I am at 7 months. Preggo's you must get this DVD!!

I decided on this dvd based on other reviews. I'm satisfied with it for the most part (can't speak for the post natal portion yet), but there's a few things I wish I would have known.

In the video Suzanne looks like she's in her second trimester, which is right where I'm at as well. However, once I get into my third trimester I'm going to wish she was there too so I could see if some of this stuff is modified for the growing belly. However, Suzanne is really good about mentioning modifications while exercising, so I don't feel that this is going to be a problem.

The video starts off with standing floor work. She manages to get the heart rate going without overdoing things. However, I wish I would have known how much squat work is in this portion of the video, I have bad knees and this part is often painfully shaky for me. Aside from the squat work (which I modify), the standing floor work is a very good workout for the legs and even the arms in some parts. I'm not in very good shape and I'm by far no yoga expert (one class in college), but at the end of this section of the dvd I usually feel sweaty but not exhausted. It's satisfying.

Then the dvd moves into the floor work. This portion isn't as "get you sweating" as the standing work, but it definitely keeps the heart rate up and works out the muscles. She starts off with "vacuum abs," or cow something-or-other as I knew it in college, then moves right into push ups, leg lifts, and ab work without resorting to being on the back. If it weren't for the push ups (I've never liked those) then this would be my favorite portion of the video.

The stretching and relaxation portion is actually pretty important, or else you'll be sore and tight the next day.

Before pregnancy, I was a big fan of Suzanne Bowen's Slim & Sculpt pilates video for the 10-minute series, which I find efficient, fast-paced, well-instructed, and fun to do. Her Long & Lean prenatal workout is not quite up to that level. While the exercises are for the most part well-designed, with an emphasis on pilates-style controlled movements, I find the overall workout repetitive and boring and the tinkly piano music not particularly invigorating.
The 45-minute workout is composed of three sections.
(1) Standing exercises: squats and lunges combined with arm and upper body strengthening work. Each major set of exercises is performed three times on each side of the body. It can get challenging, but unfortunately it can also get boring.
(2) Floor work: push-ups (a lot), pilates leg-work, some exercise of the obliques, hamstrings and glutes. This section is pleasantly challenging and carefully designed not to put you on your back.
(3) Stretching & relaxation: This is a whole-body stretching routine with an emphasis on hips, legs and back. However, some of the positions are becoming more difficult as my belly swells up.
Bowen has hardly started to show in this video, at maybe about four or five months. Perhaps that's why she doesn't give much advice on modifying, other than to listen to your body and stop when you need to. Even the very first warm-up, which involves bringing your knees up and swinging your arms, might be affected by a big belly, since you might want to bring your knees lower or to the sides. Some of the stretches she does simply don't seem possible with a big belly. This is important to me already in my second trimester, because I'm very petite and so my belly is already enormous in relation to the rest of my body.

I am 8 weeks into my first pregnancy and was a moderate exerciser before conceiving. I'm not a fitness buff (in fact, I was in the process of trying to lose a good amount of weight before becoming pregnant) but I am pretty good at being consistent with exercise. I have always been a fan of The Firm videos because they have kept me fairly toned over the last few years. After becoming pregnant I decided these workouts were a little too "bouncy" in parts to be used for a prenatal workout so I began searching for a true prenatal workout dvd. I am so glad that I purchased the Long and Lean Prenatal Workout from Suzanne Bowen and Leah Sarago! It is definitely challenging but you have full freedom to perform the exercises at your own level and pace. What's great about it is that the movements you are doing are very controlled and somewhat slow, helping you to remain balanced but also helping you to build up your balance ability (which is very important for pregnant women). You can choose to do the three segments of the workout separately or all together as one workout. If you are a beginner, just realize that you have the freedom to stop, start and workout at your own pace. Just challenge yourself to do a little bit more each time and you will definitely see improvement. I think that any motivated pregnant woman would find this prenatal workout both gratifying and strengthening.
