Diastasis Recti Workout

One of the questions I most commonly receive on this site is what to do if you have diastasis recti. What exercises can you do, and how can you put them into a safe diastasis recti workout? What should you avoid? How can you prevent this condition from worsening?

Exercises that are safe to do if you have diastastis recti! It is SO important to work out your core safely.

While I’ve done quite a bit of research on DR (to make sure all of the PBB exercises are safe and progress in an effective manner), it’s not an area where I have a ton of personal experience. While a vast majority of women (and even some men!) have DR, it’s not something that’s often discussed. Wouldn’t it be nice if they told us at our 6-week postpartum appointment EXACTLY what to do instead of “back to our old routine if it still feels good”?

My friend Jess, a Physical Therapist and fellow group fitness instructor, put together this amazing Diastasis Recti workout. She is a wealth of knowledge, and gave me permission to post her video for you here.

    This is so helpful, thank you!! It’s hard to find a demonstration of proper technique to help improve DR. My boys are 18 months apart so I don’t think I fully healed from the first pregnancy. Again, thank you, I can’t wait to incorporate these exercises into my routine!
