The wife found yoga good post baby

She was also given a brief chat and some recommended exercises at the hospital before discharge.

She didn't have a c section though

Can't remember how bad her abdominal muscles were though being over 5 years ago

they won't be able to gov you too much about specific rectis distasis, especially rehab for it...either will a yoga teacher...how many cms are you? if you're fittish already then you'll have minimal separation (2 - 3cms) which should fix itself so long as you don't go too silly with exercise too early once you can go again...doing prehab for it now will also give you faster bounce back time
 
Does anyone know of some programs for abdominal separation remedy post spawning a future athlete?

Obviously not immediately, but I'd like to get back to shape promptly post delivery.

If there are options for C section and V delivery that would be awesome.

Sorry for estrogening up the testosterone cloud here for a bit.

Social media stalk Anthony Lo (often goes by the tag “The Physio Detective”)
 
Yeah it's not for everyone.

Yep, took me a while to figure that out unfortunately, training in my garage and not knowing anyone who lifts, the internet tells you that anyone can walk up to a bar and start squatting, or be close to squatting, with form sufficient to start linear progression.

I think there's probably a lot of 30 something desk jockeys out there like myself who have learned the hard way this isn't the case.
 
Have a look at the legs Dorian Yates (6 time mr Olympia winner) built, he didn’t squat for 10 years.
 
took roids too

Really?

You missed my point, yes he took steroids but it’s in a competition where steroids is required to compete against everyone else.

The steroids along with training and diet allowed him to build the freakish mass. And he didn’t squat but still managed to win the Olympia 6 times in a row.

My point was that the average joe can still build a good set of legs without squatting, the taking or not taking of steroids is irrelevant to the point I was trying to make.

Gear doesn’t make an exercise better or worse.
It just changes how heavy, how much and how often you can do it.
 
I used to hate squatting.

It's become one of those exercises now that I hate to love. It leaves me gasses and sore every time I do them, but I now love doing them.

People just think those who take gear and have impressive physiques just sit at home eating hamburgers and watch tv.

Just look at some dorians blood and guts videos that bloke was fierce in the gym. The gear just took him to an extreme level of freakish mass.
 
Bill Goldberg was on The Grand Tour the other day, he's going back to professional wrestling

He's on the gear for sure but he's working out 3 times a day 6 days a week and eating 15-20k calories a day to get ready

Nobody in the show even blinked when he said that

Check out Eddie hall, Brian Shaw and the mountain. Three of the biggest strongest men in the world, on the gear and eat like it’s a full time job plus training 2-3 hours a day.

I think Dave Tate said it best when he said gear will only take you to 1 level above where you are.
So if you’re a third tier track athlete, gear might get you to second.
If you’re a state title holder, gear might get you a placing at a nationals.
If you’re an Olympic semi-finalist, gear might get you to the finals.
Only if you’re on an Olympic podium already will gear get you gold.

Yeah I've watched Eddie Hall Strongman on Netflix.

that probably isn't a reflection of the impact it can have on your aesthetics though (see zyzz)

athletic performance though sure

Love squatting at the moment.

I'm an over 40 yo (just) office jockey...I smith machine squatted when I started lifting again 5 years ago. I then progressed to free weight BB squatting, and in the past couple of years, I've goblet squatted when I've either felt sore or if I'm travelling and in a gym without a BB.

I've not always looked forward to squatting (not like chest or back compound exercises), but in the last month I've gone back to a full body x 3 a week routine, with BB squatting every session, and I'm loving it.

My latest thinking is that it's simply related to;
- my own form. I believe the goblet has helped significantly - previously getting depth with good form has been a problem (I'm tall-ish/long-limbed, which I've heard is correlated - it could though just be the building of up of my own strength).
- fitness. Both physical (no injuries/soreness), and mental (I'm going in psyched up, with a long-term goal in mind, so really want to smash them out).

I remember when I first tried to squat, without the bar just get down into a squat after a few years of doing sweet fa other than sitting at a desk the struggle

then to get a bar on my back with my shoulders being tight and how heavy it felt just to have a bar on my back and squat

that day when I was doing warm ups and realised the bar felt like nothing and I was going up and down smoothly was the day I fell in love with squatting

when i came back to it last year realised how far away from being able to do a squat I was, well that sucked. But getting back through the work so that I could squat again and feeling good under the bar again, I'm back baby.

There is just something about squats for me
