Exercises to Correct Diastasis Recti after Pregnancy

Apr 28th 2015

Workout Wednesday!

If you have diastasis recti after pregnancy (a separation of the abdominal muscles) you may be confused about what exercises are safe to perform.  The following video shows some great core exercises that can help you heal your gap and flatten your post-partum belly.  Until the separation is healed, you need to avoid traditional crunches, planks and oblique exercises.  Watch this video from babyweight.tv and perform these simple moves to improve core strength.

As always, consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program.
