Tried out my new #fitsplint maternity band today. Felt nice and secure and helped alleviate some growing belly pressures. Let's hope this helps me continue for as many more weeks as possible! #26weekspregnant#fitpregnancy 💪
Working around that pelvic girdle pain and keeping core/glutes strong. Weighted single leg exercises are being avoided at this stage for her. This client told me yesterday as she tried the Maternity FITsplint last week for the first time at 30 weeks pregnant, “I really didn’t think this would help, but I really feel a difference and it doesn’t show under my dress!” Yes! Sometimes a support is a great idea in pregnancy. The FITsplint will not make you weaker. It’s flexible so it doesn’t restrict range of motion and women are encouraged to keep up their core strength exercises. Sometimes there are things out of our control like bladder pressure, pelvic girdle pain or how the baby carries causing more Diastasis or the need for support while running or exercising etc..Strengthening exercises are the first step to prevention; a support is next and can be a great aide to keeping women active during pregnancy. #precore#fitpregnancy#coreexercises#pregnancy#innercore#pelvichealth#diastasisrecti#FITsplint#momfitness

If there is one thing you know about me..it’s my love for all things core and how important PreCORE and ReCORE exercises are for women going through childbirth. Back in 2014, after I had spent almost 5 years training pre/post women exclusively, I summed up the 4 core issues into a chart. It’s not all about Diastasis postpartum. You don’t have to have Diastasis to have a weak core. There are several other big reasons women benefit from reconditioning the inner/outer core/pelvic floor. And while it’s ideal to do before returning to typical exercise to prevent issues and injuries...it’s never too late. PS- this doesn’t mean full body exercises are not important postpartum..but it does mean the core is where we start and then build out. #postpartum#recorefitness#medicalexercisespecialist#diastasisrecti#postnatalfitness#fitsplint#childbirth#fitpregnancy#pelvichealth#coreexercises#corefitness
