Are you working on healing your diastasis recti?
Did you know that there’s a key part of the diastasis healing journey that often gets forgotten (or isn’t even mentioned)?
The truth is that healing diastasis isn’t just about strengthening your muscles and doing certain exercises to help your body recover.
Yes – you do want to do key exercises that’ll help your core heal.
But you also want to focus on another essential part of core rehab…
Stretching and lengthening your muscles is essential to recovering as much tone and function as possible when you have diastasis.
Think of it this way – if you were trying to zip your coat up and someone was pulling on either side of the coat you’d have to try really hard to bring both sides of your coat together in order to be able to zip it up. Right?
Now think about this in terms of your diastasis. When you have tight muscles elsewhere in your body pulling at your core, it makes it harder for your diastasis to heal well.
That’s why stretching is so key.
So let’s stretch it out, shall we?
Have a Q about a stretch or something I said in the video? Ask away in the comments below. I’d be happy to help you 🙂
You might be wondering how often you should be doing this.
You can do these stretches daily, or a few times a week. I recommend aiming for at least 3 times a week to get the most bang for your buck.
You don’t even have to do them all in one sitting. If you only have 5 minutes, pick 2 or 3 and go for it. Because if you wait for the perfect moment – the moment when you have time to do the entire video – it may never happen. So do what you can with the time you have.
As always, our motto is progress over perfection.
So make a plan to get it done and run with it, my friend.
