    Thankyou! You are amazing i just wish i was in my first trimester now instead of my third lol but i will still give this a go (carefully) oh and your home gym is a dream!!!

    Hey i was wondering if i decided to do these at home if i could use a ball for the incline dumbbell fly and use the ball for support for the bicep curl? Thanks again

    HI Flavia,
    Congrats on the pregnancy! I just delivered 3 months ago and am anxious to get some more weight off (I have about 10 lbs to go). Will you be doing any pregnancy weight loss videos after you have delivered? If not, what do you suggest to get those last 10 off?

    Many thank,

    In my first trimester and loving all of your posts! I was doing FBL (three weeks into my first trimester….unknowingly). Once I found out I immediately switched to these and come less intense cardio. I haven’t had nausea except for in the morning. I too have to eat ASAP or I throw up. Keep the posts coming and congrats on your pregnancy! Thank you!

    I have just watched your first trimester DVD and it fab!!! To answer your question yes
    I have also had awful nasea and morning sickness . I just keep eating to get rid of that horrible
    Feeling. Looking forward to working out to your videos.

    Thank you

    Can youn please suggest an alternate move for the cable press down? I workout at home and don’t have anything to do this move. Thank you!

      Hi Jenni,
      If you can set up a resistance band and do the same motion that would be great, if not you can do a close grip push up. 🙂
      All the best!
