Do you feel like your lower belly sticks out more than your upper belly since you had a baby?
Have you heard it’s because of diastasis?
That could be the case, but it may also be this other common reason.
I see this a lot in many postpartum women and it’s actually not always caused by diastasis.
Here’s what it could be…
While diastasis may be causing or contributing to a lower belly pooch, it may not always be the case.
And if you realize you’re an ab gripper, it’s important that you work on that zipper core engagement strategy so that you put less pressure on your pelvic floor.
Act like you’re zipping your belly up from the bottom to the top.
You’re not aggressively sucking your belly in, just a gentle engagement if you’re lifting light weight, and a stronger engagement the heavier you lift.
Always match your core engagement to what you’re doing.
Lifting lighter? You don’t need to suck it in so hard.
Lifting heavier? Focus on a firmer zipper strategy while still being able to breathe.
