The definitive, bestselling guide that has helped thousands restore their core muscles!

Your abdominal muscles have many important jobs--they help you do everything from twisting your spine to singing, accommodating pregnancy, and protecting your abdominal organs. They should not be splitting down the middle! Diastasis recti is not just a "weak core." It's a symptom of a whole-body problem.

In Diastasis Recti biomechanist Katy Bowman explains:

Why it's better to think of a diastasis as a symptom rather than as "the problem" How your current movement habits may be worsening your separation Five postural adjustments to make immediately Why mainstream core exercises like crunches and planks can make a diastasis worse How to sit, stand, an walk for a stronger "whole body" core

With over 30 exercises and habit modifications, this book presents a whole-body corrective program to address the forces overloading the core in the first place. Diastasis Recti is for any man or woman wanting to improve both the function and the appearance of their abdomen.

From the back of the book.

“Your abdominal muscles have many important jobs- They help you do everything from twisting your spine it singing, accommodating pregnancy, and protecting your abdominal organs. They should not be splitting down the middle!”
‘In Diastatsis Recti, Biomechanist Katy Bowman explains the larger picture when it comes to DR-including body alignment; frequency of movement; the affect of all day forces, like intra-abdominal pressure; and why doing just a few focused exercises doesn’t often result in long-term success. You must learn a new way to move for an improved set of core muscles.”
I am a huge fan of Katy Bowman. She is one of the leaders in Movement Nutrition and has taught many about all day movement. This book includes over 30 exercises and habit modifications you can incorporate into your days.
