#97 – Diastasis Recti

After researching, I now know that my condition is called diastasis recti. Basically, my abdomen muscles have been stretched to accommodate my baby and now I’ve to do core workouts to tone them back in shape. Otherwise, the abdomen will continue to be protruding despite months after delivery.

And I realized that the core exercises that I’ve been doing are detrimental to toning the muscles. In fact, they have counter effect on them. I decided to take S’s advice to consult his personal trainer. He works with another trainer who has experience training women with this condition.

The first visit was purely breathing exercise. He taught me how to do proper belly/abdomen breathing which is supposed to make future workouts more effective. Oh, did I mention that my trainer looks like a Korean pop star. Not too bad a deal eh? 😉
