"STRENGTH IS BEAUTIFUL 🌸
Unlock your core power with @28unlocked ’ 💪👊💯🔥
Fire up the core with bands! 🔥
I love adding weight or bands to ab moves because they help to:
✅ increase core engagement (much needed after 2 kids!)
✅ helps with proper form by drawing the back flush to the floor avoiding an arched back SAVE 📌
TAG and try this series. 20 reps each, 3 rounds.
🔥Train like a Woman Tip
🔥Are you stressed?
🤯 Cortisol (the stress hormone) increases abdominal fat.
The keys to lowering cortisol are:
1️⃣ Keep glucose stable (regular meals ever 4 hours, eat 20G protein within 1 hour of waking, no late night snacks and smaller and smaller meals as day goes on
2️⃣ Exercise, meditation and an anti-inflammatory diet all help to reduce levels too.
3️⃣ Adaptogen supplement such as Rhodiola and Ashwaganda. If you feel the need for anti-anxiety meds, this might just help you get off of it or need less of it!
DIASTASIS RECTI: Got a mommy pouch? You’re not alone! Up to 60% of women postpartum will have DR (separation in abdominal wall). ⠀
✅Avoid flexion/extension exercises like sit-ups and crunches while trying to repair DR.
Reverse crunches are safe since you are not lifting head and shoulders ⠀
✅ Focus in deep breathing while contracting abs and do exercises like these which are all DR safe!
