Non-TummySafe Routines

(Despite her degree in exercise and sport science and countless certifications as a group fitness instructor, Bethany didn’t realize that diastasis recti, hernia and prolapse should merit a change in fitness patterns. It’s simply a matter of avoiding certain movements and utilizing other movements. As soon as she discovered the research about the correlation between crunch-like motions and sit ups and their effect on widening diastas rectii, Bethany made some big changes to Fit2B Studio! However, some of the members didn’t want her to just get rid of all those “old” workouts. So if your core is fully healed, and have done ALL the other routines on Fit2B, and you think you “get it” then go ahead and try these following routines. But notice the shape of Bethany’s belly then compared to now 🙂 )
