16 minute interval get rid of mummy tummy purely training workout

by purelytwins

Awesome full-body, heart-pumping home workout safe for diastasis recti sufferers and moms post partum!

Although, anyone can do this workout. All fitness levels are welcomed in Purely Training #90.

You can read about my story finding out I have DR at my 10 weeks post partum update.

I have good days where I feel my core is strong and then bad days where I feel my posture was poor, which results in hurting my healing.  I am focusing more on positive thinking to help heal my diastasis recti.  Join along with me.

Time to be honest with ourselves. Time to live in the present and do what we need to do at this moment. Being active is one positive thing you can do for your health and happiness. Working out builds strength inside and out so we can be there for our family!

Thank you so much for posting these workouts! I am 6 months postpartum and have only recently discovered that I have DR. After being told by my doctor at 6 wks I didn’t have it, I resumed my normal workout routine which I now realized made the separation worse (mountain climbers, burpees, front planks, crunches). It’s been an emotional struggle for me as I am very active and fit and have seen minimal results with my stomach. I have felt lost in my workout routines now and unsure of what to do to help it. These workouts and your blog have been super helpful to me. I would love more ideas on what to do consistently to close the gap. I’ve been working on my posture so much more as I’ve realized I’ve been neglecting it since having my baby. Thanks you for the positivity and inspiration you provide women that are going through this.

Great blog and even better attitude. Everybody has the right to go for the body they want to have. I give it up to all the mummys out there going for their tummy, er goals. Keep it up.

For most of my time as a fitness professional I used the “belly button to spine” cue for core activation. This last year I was taught to pull the belly button to my pelvic floor muscle, and visa-versa. Wow. Huge difference. Now I’m telling everybody. It won’t necessarily make anyone’s belly fat go away… unless they spend the whole day flexing their pelvic floor, but that’s impossible… but it will make you feel that core activation like never before.

Hope it helps. Keep writing!
