When you are working on rehabbing your abs (whether it was 5 babies ago or recently), it is important that you focus on strengthening the transverse abdominis and pelvic floor. About 85% of us don't know how to activate this important muscle.
So what are some easy ways to work the transverse abdominis and what benefits can you expect to get from this muscle? For starters, it can help to improve your posture, help to decrease lower back issues, as well as improve your physique.
We have a plan for you! But first, follow these three steps:
STEP 1: Watch Ab Rehab and perform the "untraditional" core exercises.
STEP 2: Download your Ab Rehab Guide
STEP 3: Perform the diastasis recti self-test to see if you might have an ab separation. If you think you do, follow our diastasis recti program.
Diastasis Recti Self-Test
Try this self-test to see if you have an abdominal separation. If you think you have a diastasis (separation) it is best to see a physical therapist for some 1:1 attention + follow our Diastasis Recti program.
Tip: Everyday TA (Bedtime Abs)
Perform this 5 minute routine at bedtime 3-5x/week. It will improve your core health, better a diastasis, improve back pain and/or improve your posture.
Gentle Core Routine
This gentle core workout is great for moms who have had a c-section (6+ weeks postpartum). We built in extra challenges in the last three exercises...please only do the "extra" after completing this workout a 2-3 times. Fire up your core in a healthy, gentle way. No equipment needed.
Tip: Everyday TA (Standing Abs)
We spend more time standing and sitting than we do working out! Get the most out of the other 12.5 hours a day with 2 standing exercises, 1 seated exercise and 2 bedtime exercises.
Tip: Scar tissue after C-Section
It doesn't matter if it's been ten years or ten months, you can work to minimize your scar tissue!
