Tone & strengthen your whole core
without crunches, sit ups or unmodified planks!
These specialized routines will strengthen your core, unmuddle your middle, and redefine your waistline from the inside out with TummySafe™ moves that prevent *abdominal trauma and restore function. This pathway originally contained all our TummySafe™ workouts, but now our whole site is “TS” so members suggested making this page just for tummies! Click here to see all the workout pathways.

Once you’re comfortable with the “F5” routines above, scroll down and mix in the following TummySafe™ videos to further progress the strength and stamina of your abdominals.
P.S. You won’t find a workout that only contains moves for your biceps, or moves for your quads, or moves for your abs beyond the “F5” series because we believe the whole body needs to move!

“I just wanted to publically acknowledge you for your amazing website! I am a stay at home mom who has been on a little hiatus from excercising. When I was ready to return, all of your workouts were there, waiting for me. I was able to get in a great workout while my little one napped. No need for a sitter or to drag her to the gym. I am so happy and grateful for all that you do!! Thank you.” Fit2B in Washington, Jennifer P.
*Abdominal Trauma includes but isn’t limited to a debilitating change in the integrity and function of the adbominal muscles, connective tissue and nerves due to surgery, abdominally abusive workouts, external abuse, extreme “stretching” sports, chronic constipation or asthma, or even poor alignment which creates undue intra-abdominal pressure. A diastasis recti is a separation of the right and left sides of your rectus abdominus, often accompanied by a thinning of your linea alba. It is caused by excessive intra-abdominal pressure from pregnancy, extreme stretches, long hours in poor alignment, asthma, constipation, and/or many other factors that leave the belly chronically distended and “poochy.” If you believe you could have a large diastasis, we strongly urge you to seek additional abdominal rehab.
