Postpartum bodyweight, full body workout for moms and safe for those with diastasis recti

Are you a mom that has diastasis recti?

You are not alone, Lori does too! Follow along with her as the workout is safe for diastasis.

Make sure you share this with your fellow moms!


Lori is over 9 months postpartum, so her core is stronger than when she first started her postpartum fitness journey.

If you are just starting your postpartum journey or realized you have diastasis recti please check out her other postpartum workouts here that are great to do to build strength before you do this more advanced workout for the core and pelvic area.

I am strong mantra. Mantra for today’s workout is – I am strong. Everyday.

Sometimes we forget how strong we really are as ladies. We have a lot on our shoulders and minds all the time. We handle a lot of things. It’s time we start remembering – hey I can handle this. I am strong. I can face anything.

Because we can. Also, it’s time for us to start being strong for others not putting others down.

See you in the next workout. Thanks for the support!! Never miss a workout.

Thanks for the new workout!

I have a question about pregnancy safe / DR safe (or not) workouts. I noticed that the Purely Training #80 is indicated as pregnancy safe (and Lori is doing the workout), but your note on today’s post says that it is not DR safe. I’m confused – is this workout okay for pregnant and post-partum women, or a bad idea? Or did you think it was okay at the time but now you’re worried it wasn’t in hindsight?

Would Lori do this workout (#80) again during a future pregnancy?

Totally understand that you aren’t doctors, and that everyone needs to consult their own doctor re: medical advice for pregnancy-safe and diastasis recti-safe workouts (as I’m sure you did), but just curious as to your personal thoughts.

We feel it can be still pregnancy safe and post partum safe for those that don’t have DR. After a lot of research working out and doing certain exercises is not the only cause to get DR. It really comes down to pressure on the TVA, breathing and proper alignment (how we carry ourselves in our daily activities, how we sit, how we walk, etc). It is much more than workouts. We have also read about ladies that did all sorts of planks, etc during their pregnancy and never got DR, and then we have heard ladies who didn’t workout at all during pregnancy and got DR. There are so many different factors.

Well, now that I have DR I would focus more on side planks during that workout instead of frontal plank tucks. And the bird dog tucks could put pressure on TVA as well with someone with DR. The other exercises are fine. I have no really idea of why I got DR, I don’t think it was just from my workouts. I think my posture and alignment prior to getting pregnancy was bad so that already caused issues before pregnancy. Or I might have gotten it while pushing, I have no idea. I did not notice any major separation during my pregnancy, so hard for me to say.

This is something I definitely need–coming from a super noisy exerciser!
