NO NO NO, we never want to do any type of exercise where we take our shoulders off the ground (flexion) or lifting both legs off the ground at the same time. These movements bulge the core. Any type of flexion of the core is harmful.
Can I re-open my diastasis?
Yes, if you are not moving safe and doing harmful exercises, you can self induce DR.
Is it safe to do Core Compressions™ while pregnant?
Yes, in fact we recommend you do CC's throughout your entire pregnancy to prevent/ minimize/ and even resolve diastasis recti. You will learn how to use your "push" muscles correctly and go into labor with confidence.
