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.

Why splint?? How to apply the diastasis rehab splint.

The diastasis rehab splint: is it necessary???
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.

J's After PICS taken9/8/2011 -
9 months postpartum - c-section #4
Top : closed
Middle: 1
Lower: closed
Waist at the belly button: 28 inches

J lost nearly 4 inches in 6 weeks just by doing the Tupler Technique! Her weight stayed nearly the same(she said she went down 2 lbs) - but the dramatic results of her waistline change were apparent to everyone, as everyone noticed! She said her abdominals were never like this and that she was probably one who had a diastasis even before having children.
Since then, I have seen her and she has lost 1 more inch from her waistline.

Remember this NEW YEAR. Check Your Belly Before you Wreck Your Belly!

There is a correction in the belly check dates:
They will be Thursday January 19th 4:30 - 6pm
Tuesday Jan 24th 4:30 - 6pm

Please RSVP for a spot!

"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."
