Check out this 15-minute workout to tone and define your arms. These exercises are largely diastasis recti safe. You might want to modify on the push-ups, as without proper core engagement, you could worsen your diastasis recti. The best modification is a push-up against the wall or a high counter (the higher the surface…the less strain on your core muscles).
This is what I like to call an AMRAPBCC (As Many Reps As Possible Before Child Cries–or 15 minutes–whichever comes first)! workout. All you need are some dumbbells or some weighted objects.
The lighting sucks on this video. It could possibly be finger smudge from Miles, too. He loves the “monkey game” on my phone. Who knows. Apologies.
