Buns of Steel 8: Pregnancy Workout EP Version VHS
Maintaining your current fitness level is the goal in this upbeat pregnancy workout from the Buns of Steel series. Fitness expert Madeline Lewis (in her third trimester, no less) smiles and chatters her way through a 45-minute low-impact routine. But low-impact, quite obviously, is not Ms. Lewis's typical style. This high-energy workout should appeal to anyone who enjoys the quick-paced repetition of basic or step aerobics. Following a 10-minute warm-up, traditional moves such as the grapevine, heel tap, and V-step get the legs in motion while the arms attempt to keep up with busy choreography. Fifteen minutes of aerobic activity is followed by about 10 minutes of toning; a modest but effective amount of tucks, squats, and bun-burning exercises is included. Unlike The Kathy Smith Pregnancy Workout--an excellent and comprehensive if slightly tamer routine--Buns will make you break a sweat. Heart rate and "perceived exertion" checks help you determine when to slow down. --Liane Thomas

I don't advise this for anyone that wasn't in great shape before getting pregnant, but I am 6 months pregnant and still doing a Firm DVD work out (I am forgetting the name, but the main instructor is blond and the DVD is very new and high end), which for some reason, mixes low impact, squats, weights, some kickboxing and all so well, I never get winded and feel so good that I am still able to do more aggressive work outs. I do wear a stomach belt, though, as you have to be careful of your back and your belly hanging out without contracting your stomach muscles. I will probably stop though when I hit 3rd trimester.
I only gained 20 pounds and found it great for the post natal work out too.
