A few posts ago I wrote about the Tupler Technique. The Tupler Technique is a program that helps men and women repair their diastasis recti. And though abdominal separation can happen to anyone, it’s very commonly found in postpartum women. Aren’t we lucky, ladies??
You might suspect that you have diastasis recti if you’ve tried endless crunches and found yourself getting no where. Or worse, you found your belly actually getting bigger!
This image, taken from the Tupler site, shows a picture of abdominal separation on the left. The right image is of abdominal without the diastasis…obviously.
Having your abs separated is not good. It can cause back pain and other issues. Plus, it’s totally not cute.
When I first shared about the workshop that I was taking with Bonnie, I had so many moms reaching out to me to find out more! Everyone wanted to know what exercises I was doing!! But the Tupler Technique is not just a set of exercises. It’s a program that creates an awareness of your midsection…something that really needs to be done with an instructor.
Below are my before and (so far!) after pictures. Within the first 6 weeks of the program, I’ve already seen some pretty great results!
If you look carefully at the before picture, you can see my belly button sticking out. (I should have used some self-tanner for the pictures!) That belly button had been driving me crazy since Ivan was born. But I had no idea that it was a HERNIA until I meet with Bonnie! That hernia is now gone because of the Tupler Technique!!
Another amazing thing? I’ve lost 2 inches around my waist! My pants and skirts and fitting nicer. I’m actually looking forward to bathing suit season!
The great thing about the Tupler Technique is that it doesn’t matter how long ago you had kids…you CAN kick your mommy tummy to the curb. Still don’t believe me? Take a peek at these amazing before and after pics of other clients of Bonnie’s.
If you are anywhere near Chicago, you need to attend one of Bonnie’s workshops. I actually drove an hour out to Yorkville three separate Saturdays just to take this class. Completely worth it! And if you’re not within driving distance, you can set up a Skype session.
Mamas, you owe it to yourself to get that pre-baby belly back! Don’t accept that mommy tummy…there is a simple solution to help you.
