C/TS – Weightlifting 201

TummySafe Weightlifting 201 Workout - fit2b.com

If this workout doesn’t turn your muscles to mush {in a good way} then you’re ready for heavier weights, because, as I say many times throughout the routine itself, “Oh. My.

This routine explores a huge variety of motions – everything from easy to hard stuff like mountain climbers and pikes – with my classic “tummysafe” cueing. IMPORTANT NOTE: Some […]

Are You Fit2B Running With a Diastasis Recti?

Running with a weak dysfunctional core will make diastasis recti and pelvic floor issues worse!

Ah, running… The activity that everyone thinks they should be doing to get super fit, but running can be very detrimental to a dysfunctional core. Some people truly love running; it’s a release for them just like race-walking is a vent for me. I understand that if you’re an avid runner, it’s discouraging to have life or injury force you […]

Protecting Your Abs When You’re Coughing & Sneezing

Protecting Your Abs When You're Sneezing and Coughing

A few weeks ago I jumped on a trampoline for the first time in a long while, and right after I came down with a colossal 3-day head cold. HooWee! Let me tell you! Even though I’m certain that I’ve laid a good foundation in my core and pelvic floor (PF) with great exercises like walking, proper […]

Feeling FROZEN in Your Tummy’s Progress? Let It Go! Let It Go-O!

Holding your tummy in all the time is NOT the solution for your big belly. In fact “holding stuff in” benefits FEW facets of our life. Yes, I know, sometimes we just don’t know how to let go of stuff, and by “stuff” I mean dreams, children, tummies, that one exercise we just can’t seem […]
