    Well after searching throughout the world (wide web), I landed on your video that seemed to be the only one that was able to explain what I had: Diastases Recti from bad workouts (I’m a man) and severe coughing (covid 18 months ago). My doctor repaired my small umbilical and inguinal hernias 3 months ago and I thought that would fix the “alien” bulge, but it didn’t even though the mesh went up high and he stitched the fascia together there. He said I’d have to exercise my way out of that one. I have yet to find a list of exercises to do to fix it. You sound hopeful and smart. Help me Kelly.
    Your new fan, Dari.

      Hi Dari,
      I am so glad you found us. We can definitely help you fix your diastasis and reclaim your functional core strength. It is more than a list of exercises, it is a comprehensive rehab approach that works on retraining your posture, how you connect to your core, and balances out your internal and external core muscles so the connective tissue can heal. We have a course specifically for men. Core Foundations for Men. Or you can work 1:1 with me in eSessions or a combination. You can also book a free phone call so I can talk you through your options. Let us know how we can help.
