After I had my daughter, Aijah (almost 7 years ago, whoa), I could tell my tummy had changed, big time.
8 weeks postpartum, I was committed to improving my tummy and decided to start doing 5-minutes of ab work 6 days a week, for 6 weeks, and I DID IT. I was so proud!
What I didn’t know is that I should have been avoiding sit-ups, crunches etc. because they can contribute to making diastasis recti & mommy tummy worse : (
SIT-UPS & crunches don’t flatten your tummy, and if you have diastasis recti, they can keep your ab gap open.
The exercises in this picture WILL help you flatten your tummy (even YEARSSsss postpartum).
I used to think exercises like this were too easy & ineffective, but that’s only the case if you aren’t engaging your transverse abdominals. It’s ALL ABOUT ENGAGING your TRANSVERSE ABDOMINALS (TAs) during the exercise so you can strengthen them, that’s where the results happen!
Here’s a trick to help you learn how to engage your TAs
WATCH THIS VIDEO to see the exercises in more depth. (Note: A few exercises have been added in this video, than in the graphic)
