I have a separation between my abs since having a second baby. I've been doing the basic exercises for a couple of months, plus trying to loose the extra stone of baby weight. I checked google to tell me what will help .. leg slides, side plank, squats, some standing balances and these are all really easy now. Doing everything daily. I am doing them correctly stabilising and working my pelvic floor too, plus pelvic floor exercise . Is there any progression ? I still have the separation, when can I do stand abs or normal planks ?

I joined a Pilates class which really helped. It’s important to have a teacher who can tell you when you’re doing it right and when you’re doing it wrong, and also to tell you what you shouldn’t be doing with a diastasis. There’s also Mutu system which is an online programme especially for diastasis recti.

@Haworthia yes I've seen the MUTU pop up on my ads on FB. Have you joined ? Pilates I think will have to wait until the world reopens to get proper help.?

I did and the moves are obviously Pilates-esque. There’s also food and fitness stuff which I sort of ignored Blush But there’s no substitute for a good Pilates teacher. But online videos will keep you going for as long as it takes for the world to get back to some degree of normal!

MuTu is brilliant. Can't recommend it highly enough. Although it's online now (and quite pricey!) , they used to sell a DVD of the workout so you might have joy finding a second hand copy on eBay or something.
