Elohim...thats the strange thing about having a diastasis recti, cruches actually make the issue worse. The purpose of the specialized exercises is to bring the two halves of the abdominals in and heal them since they were essentially stretched and damaged during pregancy. Other exercises that can make the diastasis worse (or make the stomach protrude out) are...
leg lift abdominal exercises
using crunch machines at the gym
Cardio is a great way to burn overall fat. I jump rope and walk but running is also highly recommended.
Lately, I have been wrapping a towel around my waist VERY TIGHTLY and doing pelvic tilts to allign the muscles. I allow my pelvis to guide my head to lift slightly (instead of allowing my head lift to guide my abs...which is wrong). It is hard to describe but the video I posted earlier will give a visual.
Any photos ladies???
