My Favorite Postnatal Workout DVDs

After I had my son, I searched every where to find a list of recommended postnatal exercise DVDs.  To my surprise, it wasn't as easy to find as I thought it would be. 

Now to fully understand my selection you should know one thing. I am NOT into the whole hard, sweat your guts out, intense, feel like you're going to die workouts. I like relaxing, refreshing workouts.  After all I am a new mom and I can't tire myself out during a workout - I need my energy to take care of my little one!

Here are a few workout DVDs that fit the bill for me.

1. Suzanne Bowen's Long and Lean Prenatal Workout by Ruah

I know, I know. It says prenatal. But they do have a postnatal ab section at the end of the video.  I preferred this ab workout to any other I tried.

2. Release Workout by Ruah

Another relaxing yoga-ish type of workout.  A pregnant Suzanne Bowen appears in this video as well.  I suggest following her modifications.

3. Go Mom Fitness: Recharge it!

This DVD has workouts separated into 15 minute increments.  This is important when you barely have a moment to yourself.  These workouts also help me feel refreshed instead of drained.  I also like that there is a simple relax/refresh section on this DVD.

Of course, speak to your doctor before starting any exercise program.
