So what changes?

Rectus diastasis. Sounds horrible! What is that? Rectus diastasis occurs when space develops between the two abdominal muscles. As they were constantly stretched during pregnancy. This obviously cause the abdomen to protrude.

Regular exercises can’t deal with the gap. It has to be removed the same way as it occurred – from the inside!

The trick is to bring the inflated uterus back to normal. So it will bring back your ABS to normal.

And the best way to do it – are Kegels!

We all definitely heard about them. But

What actually is a Kegel?

To cut a long story short: Kegel is the “stop your pee” move. It consists of two parts. Part one is to “stop your pee”. Part two is to suck in your lower belly and lift it up into your pelvis.

Well, the answer is – no. What will make your ABS perfect – is adding Kegels to you regular ABS exercise routine! Whatever you are doing – just add Kegels!
