***POST NATAL WORKOUT*** Have you recently had a baby? There are a number of exercises that just aren't appropriate for post partum women due to the risk of diastisis recti (abdominal separation) and doing these may make the separation worse or even lead to abdominal hernia. These exercises include, but are not limited to, double leg raises, crunches/sit ups, plank, push ups on the ground. Basically anything that puts pressure on the abs. Adding these five exercises to your post natal routine each day will aid recovery and encourage your core to strengthen without putting unnecessary pressure on the abs. If you would like a video on how to identify diastisis recti please comment or message me! - Single leg hip thrusts - try not to fully touch the ground when you lower - Side plank - Side leg raises (push hips forward so you're really feeling it in the - Wall Sit - try to get down to a 90 degree angle - Wall Leg raises - have your bum away from the wall a little, and don't shift weight when you raise your leg.
