When I say “engage your core” what do you do?
Do you suck it in?
Do you brace your abs?
Do you clench your butt?
Engaging your core is a lot more of a gentle movement than a lot of mamas believe.
Which is why I’m going to teach you how to properly engage your core in this video.
Because the better you are at (properly) engaging your core, the better your results can be.
How does that feel? It’s a lot smaller action than you may think, hey?
It may feel weird or hard at first, which is why I want you to practice it.
When you get up off the floor, engage your core.
When you stand up from the couch, engage your core.
When you pick up your itty-bitty one (or not-so-itty-bitty-anymore one), engage your core.
The more you practice this, the more natural the movement will feel – making it easier to properly engage your core during your workouts.
This is such a crucial part of re-gaining strength and function postpartum so we want to make it a priority.
It may not feel “right” at first. But keep working on it. Keep practicing. Overtime you’ll start to see and feel the difference and your results in the gym will speak for themselves.
