If you have Diastasis Recti or you think you might; there are certain Diastasis Recti Exercises you can start implementing into your exercise routine.
The main Diastasis Recti Exercises you need to implement are those who do not give intra-abdominal force to the connective tissue and no flaring of the ribs. These two Diastasis Recti Exercises principles will ensure you protect your core when exercising properly.
Whether you are a seasoned gym goer, or just starting out after your baby, No Mummy Tummy have created MumCore Classes to ensure you protect and strengthen your core and move suitably to alleviate any pressure or progress from healing your Diastasis.
Diastasis Recti Exercises are easy to incorporate into your daily schedule and provide protection for your connective tissue, in turn, keeping the recti muscles of the abdominals together.
Diastasis Recti Exercises are the key foundation of our MumCore, Pre & Post Pregnancy classes and are fundamental to your recovery or strengthening of recti muscles.
Our MumCore classes; led by our qualified Trainers are supportive, guided and yes hard! Who wants to come to a class and not work (unless you are my clients that come to Yin Yoga) The Diastasis Recti Exercises can always be modified so are suitable for the beginner all the way to advanced. We cater for all levels of fitness.
For those who want to get started straight away, here are my tips and some Diastasis Recti Exercises that you can incorporate right now into your repository of Diastasis Recti Exercises:
- Diastasis Recti Exercises #1: Lunges. Oh, yes I hear your groan, but Lunges are such an amazing compound movement, firing all muscles of the legs while ensuring you activate your core to keep you stable.
- Diastasis Recti Exercises #2: Active exercise like running, jumping, walking or bike riding where you can keep upright, and you are holding in your transverse for the entirety of the exercise.
- Diastasis Recti Exercises #3: Squats are another compound movement which can fire the hamstrings, booty and quadriceps all at one. Add some weights and hold them in a scarecrow position and you will activate the muscles in your biceps, triceps and shoulders.
- Diastasis Recti Exercises #4: Wall sits can be a killer- but so effective. Sit for as long as you can, with hips in line with knees, knees over your ankles, and you will be activating all of your leg muscles at once. Complain to me when you hit 6 minutes (that is how long I held one in competitions)
