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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Workout April 13, 2010
By T. Horn

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pregnancy workout! April 20, 2009
Verified Purchase
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.

I greatly enjoyed this workout for several reasons:

1. It doesn't "baby" you just because you're pregnant. I was actually sweating and felt sore the next day. Many prenatal workouts are too easy. We're pregnant, not disabled :)
2. It was broken down into 3 segments, which kept it fast paced. For an hour-long workout, that is a key element for me.
3. I have done barre before, and I liked her variations. Felt fresh.
4. It wasn't so difficult that I felt I was putting myself or my baby at risk. I did not work out AT ALL for the first 20 weeks due to horrible 24-hour morning sickness, but I still felt able to complete this workout with no worries now that I'm feeling better.

However, I do want to add three "caveats" to my otherwise 5-star review:

1. Suzanne looks clearly pregnant on the cover, but not so in the workout. Not sure why? Also, the woman doing the abs segment at the end (I don't think it was the same person) was also not pregnant or at least not showing. For this reason, I don't feel that adjustments for growing bellies were addressed. I'm already pretty large at now 22 weeks, and I had to make my own adjustments. I just used common sense, but having another model with Suzanne who was further along would have been helpful.

2. I did not like the placement of the abs workout, which is put in after a very long rest and relaxation period. This made zero sense to me. Who wants to open their eyes after cooling down for several minutes to do abs?

3. As for the ab workout itself, I think someone needs to point out that many of the exercises are done entirely on your back, which I've been told is a no-no when you're with child.

not for me. I think this is great for most pregnant women but I'm use to Jilllian Michaels so this is a little toned down for me. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars boring
I tried this video once and it's just a bunch of squats for the most part. I found it boring and it fatigued my muscles by doing one thing over and over for a really long time.
