5 exercises for a better core

Below is a video and photo series, teaching you all how to strengthen and tone your stomach with simple exercises.

This is a great little core workout that will help repair diastasis recti and build your inner most abdominal muscles, giving you a stronger core and tighter waist.  These exercises also tone the booty, so it is a win-win.

These are a few of my go-to exercises in my quest to rehabilitate my core.  I try to do this series four times a week, usually before I do my normal workout routine.

When I discovered that I had diastasis recti after the birth of my giant twin boys, I was so disheartened.  I love sports and I wanted to be back to my old self.  It took a long time.  The process was trying.  And while it is a work-in-progress, and likely always will be, I feel stronger now than ever before.

Enjoy this super professional instructional video (yes, that is sarcasm).  But, hey, I tried to edit out most of the crying from when one twin bit the other.  You’re welcome.
