🚫BURPEES🚫

Updated: Nov 5, 2023


Attention all MOMMIES with a FUPA aka MOMMY TUMMY! It's essential to understand that not all exercises are suitable for every situation. If you're dealing with diastasis recti aka the FUPA, a condition where your abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy, high-impact exercises like burpees are not be your best friend. Here's why:


💪🏾Pressure on Abdominal Muscles: Burpees involve intense core engagement, which can strain the already weakened abdominal muscles in diastasis recti.


💪🏾Risk of Worsening the Gap: The explosive nature of burpees can increase the gap between your rectus abdominis muscles, making the condition more pronounced.


💪🏾Pelvic Floor Concerns: Burpees can put stress on the pelvic floor, which may already be weakened during pregnancy and childbirth, potentially leading to complications.


💪🏾Alternative Exercises: Focus on diastasis-safe exercises like side planks, pelvic tilts, or modified push-ups that help rebuild your core strength without exacerbating the issue.
