Fit2B How To Check For Diastasis Recti

If your abs seem to only get worse when you do crunches, sit ups or planks…
If your belly button mysteriously became an outie when it was always an innie…
If your lower back always bothers you, or you constantly “throw your back out”…
If you pee your pants every time you sneeze, cough, laugh, stand up, sit down…
If you have ever had abdominal surgery and your core connection is still cut…
If you’ve ever given birth and your middle still feels muddled…
If you always feel like a limp noodle, and you have to prop yourself up…

 If you have any of those symptoms or ALL of them, then you might also have another symptom of a weak core called diastasis recti abdominus, and it’s time to change the way you workout.

Hey! I’ve been doing Totally Transverse about 4 days a week for the last 3 weeks and guess what?!
I’ve lost 3.75 inches on my belly!!! And that was for sure with no dieting – in fact it includes a couple minor binge sessions… Thanks so much Fit2B workouts!!

I’m enjoying your videos. You’re very peaceful. I’m building up my core.
My diastasis is only a 1-2-1 but I’m very weak. Lots of cellulite and lower pooch.  :-/  I had some internal health issues that thankfully just got resolved!  Praise God!!  My body wouldn’t let me lose weight!  I am lovin’ learning how to be tummy safe. I love applying new “truth” and not wasting time doing exercises that actually hurt my progress!!! It’s crazy!

I went clothes shopping today, everything I took in the dressing room to try on fit!
And! It was all one whole size smaller. :D I have lost 8 pounds. But that isn’t the cool part, I have lost 8 pounds before only to be the same size. My diet has helped with the loss, but my size going down I must credit to Fit2B! I don’t think it would of happened without this wonderful resource! :D I feel so great and so strong! Looking forward to how much better this can get!

I was doing post natal pilates for a while but had a hard time progressing into regular pilates and hurt myself the first time I tried it.
That’s when a bloggy friend was talking about your program and I figured I would try it since it was free. Like I said, I stuck with those for a while and then moved forward. I think it’s great you offer such slow transitions – our bodies definitely need it!
