I have diastasis recti. I am doing exercises to minimize the gap, but I'm not sure what other exercises are okay given that i have diastasis. Is running a bad idea with diastasis recti? What about cycling? Any thoughts on which exercises would be best? I *really* don't want to aggravate the diastasis as I have a herniated disk in my lower back as well...
Hi! I'm interested in losing weight and toning up. I have played sports most of my life and I get bored easily. I keep hearing about all these classes like Barre, Soul Cycle, Orange Theory. I would only be able to go 2 or 3X a week maximum. Which do you recommend?
I have two kids, 16 months apart, and life is hectic. I try to squeeze in a workout whenever I can but am wondering what's going to get me the best results? I usually have 30 minutes in the morning before everyone wakes up. Thanks!
Hi, I'm 3 weeks post uncomplicated vaginal delivery and eager to start an exercise routine to work towards achieving my pre-pregnancy weight and to tone my post pregnancy belly. Which exercises do you recommend and when can I start them? I have been walking daily since the day after I delivered and have gradually built it up to about 30-40 mins a day. I used to exercise regularly before and during my pregnancy, (running, elliptical, aerobics, tennis pre-pregnancy and just walking later in pregnancy)
I have 2 girls 20 months apart. Chasing a toddler and an
11 month old, i am exhausted. But I am nearing my breastfeeding journey and see the weight creeping back on and know I need to exercise but have no energy and go to bed soon after the girls. What are some easy, quick workouts I can do?
I just was watching some of your videos and they are super cute.
Thanks for taking questions!
Hi Sarah -- any tips on specific foods to help gain weight in the third trimester? I had no trouble gaining in the recommended range with my son but between running around after a preschooler, getting sick a bunch over the holidays, and feeling fuller both more quickly and for longer periods of time (e.g., I want to eat less at lunch but still feel kind of full at dinner), I am quite behind with baby #2. I've been trying to incorporate more full fat dairy, more protein, and an afternoon snack; any other suggestions? Thank you in advance...the thought of gaining 15-20 lbs in 10 weeks is quite daunting!
Hi! I don't need to lose weight (actually wouldn't mind gaining a bit), but I want to be stronger and less jiggly. I live in NYC so I walk a ton (miles a day to and from schools for my kids), and have a membership to the local Y where I could take classes. Or I could do something at home. Historically I have not exercised much at all--although I did run a 5K this fall (a big deal for me, although I've done nothing since!). I would love your thoughts on the best plan for me. Thank you so much!
