That’s right. Stop doing crunches if you want to flatten your stomach!
Sounds a little crazy, but it’s true!
If you’ve already read the 5 Dos and Don’ts, then you know crunches are the LAST thing you want to do for your “baby pooch.”
Sounds counterintuitive, right?
Let me explain. If you’re dealing with ab separation, you need to encourage your muscles to come in and up. When you do crunches, you’re pushing your muscles down and out– the opposite of a flattening effect!
The problem is, if you hire a personal trainer to help you tighten your tummy, I can almost guarantee they won’t know the proper procedures for Diastasis Recti (DR). Most people simply aren’t educated about it. What’s more, you need to take a slow, gentle approach because your body is still healing.
You wouldn’t hit it hard in the gym right after surgery because you need to allow your body time to heal. Well, you’re still healing from having your baby, so be careful and gentle with your body. If you choose to work with a trainer, make sure they are qualified to deal with DR.
If you want to start the healing process safely and naturally with a qualified expert, I’m happy to tell you about my new program called In And Up!
