A diastasis recti safe workout for postpartum mums that only takes 12 minutes.
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.
12 minute interval home workout for busy moms and it’s diastasis safe.
Let’s do this workout together!
Equipment: dumbbells or kettlebell
Style of workout: interval weight workout

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!
