Have you heard it isn’t safe to lift overhead after having a baby? Especially if you have diastasis recti or pelvic organ prolapse?
The truth is that we need to be able to lift things above our heads in everyday life so it isn’t practical to say “Don’t lift anything above your head.”
How could you get so many things in life done if you weren’t allowed to put your arms above your head?
That’s why in today’s #formfriday I’m taking you through 3 quick tips to safely and effectively do an overhead press (or any overhead lifting).
Following these tips will help ensure you have better form and don’t aggravate any symptoms or issues you may be experiencing.
As always, make sure to check in with your trainer, physical therapist, or other pro to get individualized support to help this movement work for you.
Simple tweaks really can make a big difference.
Play around with these tips and remember that the point isn’t to be perfect, just mindful – especially if you’re working on rehabbing your core and pelvic floor strength.
