Diastasis Recti Phase 1

Diastasis Recti Phase 1: A series of core-specific workouts will help you train your core from the inside out by strengthening the transverse abdominis (or TA).

Most don’t even know that it’s there until they experience a weak core, a belly they don’t like (i.e. the mommy tummy, muffin top or any other ugly name we call it) and lower back pain.
