Pregnancy Core Training

Core training is one of the most beneficial things you can do throughout your pregnancy + any stage of your life!!

We’re talking about your deep core muscles ➡️ transverse abdominals, pelvic floor & diaphragm.

You will want to maintain your core strength through safe and effective exercises ✌🏼

In general I stay away from crunches, sit-ups, deep twisting motions + any movements that can add stress to the abdominal wall or anything that domes the belly ▶️ which can cause Diastsis Recti (abdominal separation)

❗️Important ❗️ Learn how to breathe correctly and properly engage those muscles through breathing ➡️ don’t suck it in & don’t hold your breath!!
