A diastasis recti safe workout for postpartum mums that only takes 12 minutes.
Michelle and I had a great weekend. We have some more changes coming soon to the site. As you may have seen some already in terms of our blog layout, but we have a lot of behind the scenes work that still needs to happen. We can’t wait for it to be all done and share everything with you guys. In the meantime we are staying active as much as we can. The weather has been extremely cold here so to be honest we haven’t done much walking. We miss it. Today our area is getting some wintery mix tonight which means ice. We were supposed to get snow but looks like it is turning to be more ice less snow. Not fun. We both have fallen before on black ice and really hurt ourselves, so ya we aren’t looking for to ice.
Looking for a workout to do when you are short on time? We got the perfect home workout that you can squeeze in anytime of the day that you have 12 minutes. I tend to mix it up when I workout. Sometimes I do it first thing before Madison wakes up, other times it’s during one of her naps, or while she is up watching me. It varies. Either way I make it a goal to get some form of activity in most days.
As moms and working professionals we have a lot on our plates and stressing about getting everything done. There never seems to be enough time? So today’s purely training workout is perfect as it only takes 12 minutes!

If you want a specific program to follow and real time workouts I would suggest you try out our purely fit life club where I share more safe DR routines to do daily.
We suggest for different fitness levels:
B-fits (beginner peeps) – Follow modifications from video. Use bodyweight or light weight. Omit the jumping in the jump squat shuffle.
A-fits (advanced peeps) – Use moderately heavy weight. Go for speed.
Diastasis recti tip – Go slow. Focus on your breathing! Keep belly button in towards spine when exhaling. Use a light to moderately heavy weight. If you are feeling strong you can do the jumping in the squat jumps.
What if I don’t have diastasis recti or not a post partum mom, can I still do this workout?
Yes! This is a great workout for any busy lady!! You can make it your own by increasing the weights and intensity you bring to the workout!
Affirmation for today’s workout – I am OKAY!
Repeat this 3 times before you workout.
I am okay…a girl’s famous reply.
But today I want you to really believe you are OKAY because you are. There is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing to fix. You’re a beautiful mom that does so much already.
