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.

Are You Fit2B Running With a Diastasis Recti?

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 […]
