Great standing and on all fours exercises to target deep core strength to help heal diastasis recti using a mini exercise ball. The mini exercise ball is a great fitness piece of equipment that is affordable and really helps with core activation. If you have mummy tummy issues postpartum these exercises will help flatten and strengthen your core.
Lori here again and I am back with more diastasis recti tips with using my favorite home equipment the mini exercise ball.
After my last video sharing my 11 lying down ab exercises I am back with more exercises for you to try. These are more standing and on all four style positions.
It’s so important to keep up with good deep core strength whether you had (or have) diastasis recti. Michelle does a lot of these exercises with me because good core strength is beneficial for us all. In the past, Michelle and I thought we had good core strength since we could hold a plank. But.. what I have learned holding plank doesn’t always mean you have good core strength.
Enjoy today’s video. Some of the moves in the video below are a little advanced which makes it great for moms that have healed their diastasis (like me) but want to continue to keep their core strong.
