Here’s part 2, to getting your abs back after baby, no matter how long it’s been. I’ve worked with many moms to know that even 20+ years later their deeper abs may still be weak. Or really, they just never had someone to teach them how to reconnect these deep core muscles. For many moms this leads to that annoying low back pain, which I do believe for most can be prevented and can go away with proper exercises to strengthen your deeper abs.
First, be sure you’ve done part 1 of this series, click here. This will start you with basic but effective exercises. I know they may seem easy but do you really feel your deep abs working or is it your hips/low back/upper abs? Do them slowly.
Here’s part 2, your next exercises to continue strengthening your deeper abs.
Theses exercises along with part 1, are good exercises even if you do have some abdominal separation (aka Diastasis Recti). For more info on Diastasis Recti click here.
Get those deep abs back, starting now!
P.S. remember to avoid crunches until you can reconnect with your deep core, or at least start to reconnect. Here’s that post to read more about why to avoid crunches right after baby.
