I have a request from a couple of people to hold another Eldersburg Diastasis Rehab EveryBelly class.
Whether you have a diastasis or want to increase your core strength, lose inches in your waist, reduce back pain or e, all of the above, then this class is for you.
We will be helping you close your diastasis by teaching you the Tupler Technique. Closing a diastasis is all about bringing the stomach muscles back together (whether they are separated from exercise or from being pregnant) is all about healing the connective tissue that has been stretched out and strengthening your muscles in a more together position.
Make a BIG difference in 6 weeks.
It is a 4 step program:
1: do the exercises
2: avoid stress on the connective tissue by USING your travsverse!!
3: wear the splint (it will bring the muscles closer together while you strengthen them)
4. get in/out of bed correctly (do not jacknife - puts TONS of pressure on your diastasis)
Eldersburg workshop - yay!! Location (to be announced upon registration)
Fee: $110 (yay, no facility overhead and no travel for me :)) - will be less if we reach class size of 8 people.
November Workshop: (includes all three days of class)
Day 1: Monday Nov 5th 2012 (7:30 - 9:30pm)
Day 2: Monday Nov 19 th 2012 (7:30 - 9:00pm)
Final Day: Monday Dec 3rd (7:30-9:00pm)

After reading this post who knew how this would turn out.
But then, in this post, I was proving to redeem myself in closing my diastasis to a 2 or 3 , then keeping it at bay during pregnancy, story here and showing less in my third pregnancy than my first!
Soooo... here is the REST of the story:
Day 1: about 30 minutes atfter giving birth to Kinley, my doula
and I watched as my abdomen deflated and indented in above the uterus but we could see the lower abdomen stayed solid. I started splinting my abdominal muscles later that day with an old stretched out splint. It didn't give much support, but I felt something was better than nothing as my abdominals were in an unsupported stretched out state.
Day 2: 24 hours after giving birth, I was doing the Tupler Contractions exercises and felt I was actually getting good abdominal activation. The muscle memory was doing its thing and finally was all the way connecting.
I read in one of my pieces o midwife literature about how lying on your stomach can help your uterus contract. I didn't need someone to tell me twice. I took a couple of naps that day on my belly and it felt so indulging and amazing, a treat after being VERY pregnant the last few months.
Note: All diastasis measurements were taken as fingerwidths wide. Connective tissue condition is sometimes noted - deep being the worst - which means you can feel abdominal organs, tissue, pulsing ect
Day 4: I took measurements at home:
Diastasis: Waist measurements
- Top: 5 (fingerwidths wide)
- Middle: 7 33 inches around waist at the belly button
- Bottom: 5
- Top: 2 shallow 30 (just under the ribs)
- Middle: 6 med/shallow 31.25
- Bottom: 5 shallow 34
|2 weeks post baby #3 2-5-4|
- Top: 2 shallow 30 (just under the ribs)
- Middle: 5 med/shallow 31.25
- Bottom: 4 shallow 33.5
- Top: 2 very shallow 29 (just under the ribs)
- Middle: 5 med/shallow 29.25
- Bottom: 4 shallow 32
- Top: 2 very shallow 28.5 (just under the ribs)
- Middle: 4.5 med/shallow 29.25
- Bottom: very shallow 31.5
- Top: 2 very shallow 28
- Middle: 4.5 med/shallow 28.5
- Bottom: very shallow 31.5
- Top: closed 27.5 (just under the ribs)
- Middle: 2 shallow 27.5
- Bottom: 1 shallow 30
- Top: closed 27 (just under the ribs)
- Mid: width of belly button shallow 26.5
- Bottom: .75 supershallow 30
Well, I had to cut out snacking at night and sweet things ( I was only eating slightly sweetened with honey ect anyway, but it too had to go) it was not fun. I slowly lost those pounds, but I still have to be careful about what I eat, but it is good to feel comfortable in your old clothes again.
So... In conclusion, I started my pregnancy with a diastasis width of 5 (due to doing push-ups and planks with relaxin in my body). Three weeks later, I decreased it to a 2. At the end of my pregnancy I was about a 7, but not more than medium or shallow depth.
I did 10 sets of 100 seated Tupler contractions a day(many of those double-splinted), did not jack-knife in/out of bed, wore a therapuetic Tupler abdominal splint. As a result this pregnancy, I was smaller around the middle than my last pregnancy, and I was able to close my diastasias sooner and Reclaim my abdominals!
LOVE the results this technique will give you if you commit to the program. I DON't find it fair that my husband did NO abwork during this time :) That's okay, I am just glad that there is something I can do to to regain my core strength and shape post baby (s).
But guess what! You DON'T have to have just had a baby to lose that tummy. In fact it probably is easier to close when relaxin is not in your body. So barely post baby, or 40 years post baby, get started today!
Get the video, take a class, fit this technique into your life-style, GET RESULTS!
Signing off - to go spy on my baby while she sleeps soundly - LOve that!

If you want a flat tummy this summer - make sure you check your belly for a diastasis, as conventional abdominal exercises, crunches, planks, pilates v-sits will make it worse!! Not cool, right?

This is one of my clients who is a personal trainer and trains men and women and gets awesome results with her clients, is very fit, and a mom of 3 children age 4 and under. She had a hernia above the belly button 4cm wide and 3 cm tall. One week after training with me, doing the exercises and avoiding any sit-up type movements and avoiding most exercises on all 4's, she made quite a bit of progress on that hernia and quite a visual difference in her abdominals! Her hernia, barely measurable, was 3 cm tall, 3.5 cm wide and much l
notice the difference inher belly button, it went from a "protruding hernia" look to an innie!

ABOUT LOSE YOUR MUMMY TUMMY: THE TUPLER TECHNIQUE
Whether you had a baby 3 days or 30 years ago, learn to get your pre-pregnancy midsection back! During pregnancy, your stomach muscles split, which is called a diastasis. These split muscles DO NOT come back together on their own.A diastasis is what causes the not flat, slightly protruding, not-quite-right look of your tummy, a thicker waistline, back problems, and even belly button issues! Learn how to fuse these muscles back together (or keep splitting to a minimum during pregnanc), tone specific abdominal, postural, and glute muscles, correct your posture, and shrink your waistline. Specifically and uniquely designed abdominal workouts combined with upper and lower body sculpting exercises will be incorporated. Great for Pregnant women as well as Pre & Postnatal women. This method has been given the thumbs up by Dr. OZ.

If your diastasis is 3 fingers or more, you will definitely want to wear a splint! This will help approximate the two sides of the rectus abdominus, putting the connective tissue in a better position to heal and make your exercises even more effective and help you to heal and close the gap much faster. The muscles will also be stronger and you will get more out of your exercises if you wear it.
This video will help you know how to put it on correctly and help you problem solve if you have been wearing the splint, but having some trouble with it.

"When your belly gets worse or won't go away with exercise, it may not be fat. It may be your organs sticking out," said Julie Tupler, RN, the creator of the Tupler Technique® and President of Tupler Inc. "Checking your belly for a diastasis before starting your New Year's fitness resolution may be one of the smartest things you can do for yourself because it may help stop you from wrecking your belly. At our press briefing on Monday, we will show you how to check your belly for a diastasis. If you know you have a diastasis, then there are certain exercises to avoid because these exercises may make the belly even bigger. When the abdominal muscles separate the connective tissue stretches sideways and becomes weaker. When you do planks and crunches, you are creating intra-abdominal pressure that pushes against the connective tissue. This force makes the separation larger. Trauma to this abdominal connective tissue can tear it away from the muscle and cause a ventral hernia."
