Scrubbing Tubs

Would you believe me if I said I’ve filmed this video multiple times as I learn more? Of course you would! That’s how we roll around here, so it shouldn’t surprise you. I love the fluidity of a website for that very reason. As we learn more about cores and diastasis recti recovery, I can […]

Beth In Real Life | Lifting Loads

Life involves load. It’s necessary to avoid heavy lifting when you have diastasis recti or prolapse, and you haven’t yet learned the strategies for managing your pressure systems. Once you dial in your technique, though, and you learn how to recruit your core instead of bulge it, you can start approaching heavy things with more […]

Beth In Real Life | Stoking Fires

I didn’t realize how much it was affecting my diastasis recti. You may have “missing link” in your […]

More Laundry Tips

I have quite a few BIRL videos about laundry because I do quite a bit of laundry. Yeah, no maids here. My kids are old enough to do their own, but there “ain’t no dirty like farm-dirt dirty.” Because laundry isn’t just one motion but rather several, and because it involves arm actions, carrying and […]

Sorting Laundry

If you are in the early stages of restoring core function, then sorting your laundry in an upright position is critical. This may look like sorting on a table or hanging out in a deep squat if you can maintain a vertical torso. Being able to squat deeply with a vertical core takes some progressive […]

Beth In Real Life | In The Kitchen

This video is part of the original, profesionally-filmed BIRL series so it’s a little prettier than some of the others I later did with my iPhone. You see, I just can’t always wait for my film crew, and I don’t believe you always want to see me all snazzed up. So this is still me […]
