Fitness Guru Tracy Anderson is known for her effective exercise regimen. In October of 2012 she released the Pregnancy Project which is a box of 9 DVDs. Each DVD chronicles each month of pregnancy. Not only do the DVDs offer workouts for each month but they also include interviews from doctors, mothers and experts with nutrition, fitness, pregnancy advice. Filmed in real time during Tracy Anderson’s 2nd pregnancy, the videos really help pregnant women because you can see how she is dealing with and getting through each month of her own pregnancy. In the videos, Tracy focuses on strength and flexibility but pays no time to cardio because cardio is very person-specific when pregnant.
MONTH 1: This is your first month of pregnancy. You’re likely to often feel tired. Together we’ll take it slow, listening to our bodies and finding our center.
MONTH 2: You’re starting to really feel your pregnancy now, and nausea may be an issue. We’ll work on range of motion, stretching and keeping our muscles strong and in proper alignment.
MONTH 3: We’ll tone and stretch with a range of arm and leg exercises. Plus we’ll continue to strengthen our abs while this is still a possibility.
MONTH 4: Hurray! You’re now entering your second trimester. Hopefully your nausea is gone. We’ll focus on lifting your butt and keeping you looking healthy.
MONTH 5: It’s month five, and your energy is back. We’ll continue to focus on lifting your butt, while we keep you moving and feeling strong—without overdoing it!
MONTH 6: You’re recognizably pregnant now. We’ll continue to keep you connected to your muscles, allowing your body to do what it needs for the pregnancy.
MONTH 7: You’re entering your third trimester. Your baby has grown a lot. Now we’ll concentrate on preparing our bodies for the birth. We’ll focus on circulation and staying strong and flexible.
MONTH 8: The baby is really growing. We’ll continue to move in order to keep our energy up and stay connected to our bodies, which are starting to feel a little foreign.
MONTH 9: We’re preparing for birth. The goal is to open up your hips. We’ll reduce the complexity of our movements but continue to work on circulation as we wait for our blessings to arrive.
For safe and effectice workout routines that can even be continued post-pregnancy, buy the Pregnancy Project. The whole box set of 9 DVDs will only set you back $20 if you buy it now through Amazon…this is a steal!
