  • I dont understand how some people, have flat stomachs with diastasis.. i thought that it causes a circle mom pouch i could possibly not have diastasis and just be fat.

  • I just watched this for fun shahs it’s funy, but seems effective. Idk I’m only 14… But it was entertaining to watch idk how it would be to actually do it:p

  • OMG! After many videos I found the right one you are mother of 4 is incredibly you looks AMAZING!��thanks so much for sharing this definitely I will start to doing this.��

  • YOU SHOULD TAKE THIS VIDEO DOWN!!! I gave birth 6 months ago and have DR I have been following this video for a while with no results after being referred to a physio and talking about what I’ve been doing he said your advice on doing twists is the worst worst worst thing I could of done. I’ve made my problem a lot worse! ��

  • Learning about this problem so late after having my baby and still looking “pregnant” after like 10 years smh. Nothing I did work until I saw these and had great results in digestion as well. So happy bc mines was really bad and gastroenterologist never understood why my belly stuck out while everything else on me was fit. Too long but happy I found the right exercise bc I have been making it work with the stuff I was doing smh

  • So turns out I have this

    But I have not had a baby and am only 13. I have never had this until last year. Can it also be caused by severe chronic constipation?

  • I like those ladies really professional, nice clothes,clear informations.. that’s what we need not showing asses in a bikini for a workout like a lot of models those days ������

  • hello just find this, i dont have diastasis but feel me core weak, my boy is 2 years i begin with the gym can do this abds to support my core? together with the gym, i do most legs and butt exercise

  • One of the best workouts I’ve seen, I’ve lost 2.5 kgs the first month, I know it’s not a lot but it’s a start, I’ve noticed some changes and I’ve missed out only one day workout in the first month, starting month two, am hoping for more changes in my body, total of 8 exercises for my upper body consisting of squats and lunges and 9 exercises targeting my abs, only problem I have is the gap between the repetition as I feel exhausted, am hoping to cut the gap I take between the repetitions, let’s see how month 2 goes

  • Honestly without context or sound, she just looks like she’s having a good time trying to get her baby to sleep lol. I’m totally doing this tomorrow

  • This is a great idea. Babies are usually used as an excuse NOT to work out. No excuses now and the babies will love to be thrown around, most of the time

  • Very happy employing this eye sight enhancement strategy “Tοsazο Zuzo” (Google it). Previously, I would try if other vision advancement products will work for me, but they only leave me unhappy. This device I`m using showed signs of development a couple of days right after the first day I used it. My vision didn`t feel as tired nor my eye sight as blurry when transitioning from close to far…

  • At the beginning i needed 15 seconds alone, to switch over from resistance band to dumbbells, not for a “break”. 1 year after, i can’t stop doing these programs ��

  • Thanks so much. For some reason your voice and the music plus my dancing have helped settle my 4 week old! Love your facial expressions. Wish you did more of these dance baby wearing videos.

  • I wish the video description would have mentioned that it’s upper body focused. I do full body/core’lower body workouts and I feel like I wasted my time with this

  • stretching of that length should be done at the end not at the beginning. The stretching at the beginning should last les than 6 seconds per muscle, not much

  • Thank you so much for sharing ❤️ I googled
    diastasis recti and immediately got results saying surgery is the ONLY fix, but I kept scrolling through videos and found your channel and website. YAY!!! Husband and I want more babies later and surgery is not my go to. Thank you!!!!

  • Thank you! That was very helpful. I wish I saw that before. I’ve had my 5th child 2 years ago and I although very small, my gap is still there and it bothers me. I will definitely start doing those exercises daily hoping my gap closes 100% soon:)

  • Thank you. I got it from gaining weight and doing sit ups I could feel my gut rip. Now it looks like a egg under by chest in the top part of abdomen

  • I really love that you did this video. Thanks Heidi and Chris.

    I have been told not to do any twisting of my core. I had a scare so I’m really concerned about what to do. For now I will get to moving with breathing and other grounded workouts while minding my belly work. Is it possible to see full DR dedicated videos a week’s worth of three that can be rotated? All the best. #Hugs

  • FYI, I’ve seen Doctors on this and they assured me that exercise cannot fix this problem. Also, 99% of the people with this issue have a bulge in the middle, not a gap. The bulge is easily identified by putting your hand on your stomach and do a partial sit-up. You will feel and see a bulge where your intestines protruding.

  • I like it so much!Give please more video for mom!Спасибо! Это очень здорово! Побольше бы таких уроков для молодых мам!!!! Вы супер!

  • Parent child workouts are the best. Love it!:) My daughters are a little older and I have had to be more creative. I created a few videos for older kids. If you are interested check out my channel!:)

  • I really appreciate how this has the full and effective warm up and stretch before. I’m a dancer but I want to try lifting and I feel like so many workout videos neglect the importance of full on warming up and stretching. It’s a complete waste of time for me to go find separate videos when it can be all in one. Thanks!! ������

  • I tried this with my 17 month old son and we both loved it! I wish it were longer, we both enjoyed it and it was nice to find a good workout to include him in.

  • She is what? Body shop athlete super fitness model and super star something, what? Hey where can I find an ultra athlete extreme super fitness model and mega star to train with? ����
    I am sorry but I don’t like much this format one trainer is speaking and the other is a fitness model performing the training? In my opinion that is cutting too much the fun of a simple home workout… it’s not working for me, but anyway thank you for sharing…

  • Been doing these for a month. It’s different than the normal weight lifting but it’s been great. I love the accountability and short amount of time needed. I knock it out quickly and my wife can see and feel the difference in me.

  • Porfavor sigan subiendo videos me encantan y me están ayudando mucho los hago todos los días no me olviden se los suplico les mando saludos desde México

  • Yikes! Please don’t do these exercises unless you want ruin your pelvic floor… and not help your DRA at all. Wow. �� There are so many things wrong with these exercises, I don’t even know where to start.

  • I am thin all over except for a solid round belly ( when standing up ) feels like 4 months pregnant. It is amazing no doctor had visited me this way when I went to complain this is not normal. Gas they said two doctors I saw a family doctor and my gyne specialist,I will be back to them and tell them soon. Thanks

  • I am so excited to see this video! I’m going to start doing this with my baby tomorrow. I really hope to see more videos in the future!

  • Oh my gosh I’m like 170 pounds at 5 foot seven and I did not think that I would be able to feel this through my fat. I felt it. Three fingers thank you so much. Going to be doing these

  • Heidi, you are beautiful and in incredible shape, but I am wondering what caused the bump on the inside of your foot, below your big toe? I am a male with D/R and got it from being way too aggressive with ab exercises and probably not doing them all correctly.

  • This is a great video, so helpful…thank you. Do you ever get nauseous after? I didn’t eat or drink before and I’ve been so nauseous each time after.

  • It’s been 2 years later and core used to be my absolute FAVORITE workout. I still cannot do ab workouts without the top of my abdominal wall hurting so badly I cant go anymore. Any tips on what to do?

  • This was very helpful. I have a 23 month old and it’s hard to workout unless she’s asleep which is exactly how I get my workouts in, lol.

  • yesteday i broke the rule and ate 600 calories above my normal. I feel so guilty now.:( Today ill need to eat 600 calories less to make up for it lol

  • AAAANNNNDDDD I can’t feel my arms.. ��������I’m a 5’6 lil girl doing the over heads with 17 pound weights.. yes I’m trying to die������

  • hollup. Shes teaching how to get rid of diastasis while she has diastasis. Obviously this doesnt help at all otherwise she wouldnt have it

  • I watch the bloopers on this every now & again when I miss my sister & niece:) Kennedy is 3 now, we need to do a new workout video together! We also have another kids workout:

  • i came to Ladies fitness for my daughter’s care found out no careing people here that why it’s all about their asses because no understanding minds

  • I have a 5-month old. I’ve just started working out at 6 AM while my husband watches her before work 😉 Sometimes it’s only 10 minutes, but that counts!

  • Hi. That’s a very informative video. I have an 8 finger gap. Will it get corrected with these exercises or surgery is the only way?

  • I’ve been doing these videos for about three months now 3 days a week, and I could definitely see a difference�� my clothes fit different, my face looks different. And my swimsuits and lingerie looks amazing thank u sooo much.

  • IS there an advantage of doing a exercise for 30 second as oppose two doing 10-15 sets? I feel when i do 30 seconds i tend to focus on the amount of exercise and i tend loose track of my form for the last 10-5 seconds

  • Thank you soo much for including baby in workout video!!!!!!! Most the time I have to stop because baby wants attention and I never get in a proper workout.

  • Hi Heidi, thank you for this. I had two kids when I was in my 30’s. I’m now 52 and having bad low back pain. I’ve been doing research and realize that this is why I am having low back pain. Will I be able to strengthen my abdominal muscles and bring the Closer together still?

  • Ashley Conrad is a great coach. She’s a great communicator and provides the right level of guidance for these exercises. Definitely a fan!

  • please help! the baby i am utilizing is hard to manage and keeps flailing its limbs around, is this normal? also, there is a distinct, foul ordor emanating from it. i’m wondering if it is possibly defective. purchased mine from walmart bty, just throwing that out in case that’s part of the problem. any advice or recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

  • Doing ab exercise for abs guys pls do listen to this have mentioned in English & Hindi

  • She explains in more detail on how and how many reps here, I am just reading
    Thank you for posting this Heidi, you give me hope when everyone just says I need a tummy tuck to heal my dr. I admire you, you have an amazing family and body!!

  • Btw, I always love your guys videos! I loved your post on holiday/thanksgiving eating, and just cracked up you guys are sooo funny! Love your videos so much!

  • More mommy and bby work outs please we as moms usually use our bbys as an excuse not to work out but now we have no excuses and we get to spend more time with them

  • So cute! I did some exercises like this when my son and daughter were little, but this will be great inspiration to some new mommies.

  • this was cute! i usually have to workout when my daughter’s napping, which is only about 20-30 minutes. i always have to look them up in advance. maybe you guys could do a nap time workout in the future?

  • I noticed when she was doing curls her arms were not straightening out all the way, if you want long lean muscles and not bulky you should extend your muscles all the way. Long lean muscles are also much more flexible. If you use a chair for the dips you can get fuller motion of your muscles.

  • I hope you do more vids with your sister Krista and niece Kennedy. I have a 15month son and would love love love to see more vids to see how else I could incorporate my son in to my workouts. Plus as moms continue to do baby squats, moms babys weight gradually increases, and so as your baby gets heavier, you get stronger!

  • Who’s back here from the results u got 2 years ago?���� I lost 30 lbs doing this and eating healthy in 2018 and I gained those 30 lbs back plus another 8 lbs so I’m back at it again tryna not be depressed n fat��✨����

  • I can’t really tell if I have a 1 finger gap or if its nothing. I have a feeling its a gap because of the back pain associated with it.

  • How to use keep your abs strong and fit when most abs exercises are recommended against? Planks, butterfly kick, push ups, ab bikes, leg lifts, seated russian twist…. What can we still do?! I feel like the workout I’ve been doing in the past 6 months are all no no-s. I like a small gap (user two fingers), and i want to take care of it, but i don’t want to stop my HIIT programs! HELP!

  • 2nd ecercise is called hypoplexic respiration I believe. I love your explanation on how to “draw in”… and everything else lol, you’re a super woman ����

  • I did this yesterday and my abs hurt the most they ever have after a 10 min workout. But that means it’s working! Gonna keep coming back and updating my progress.

  • I was about to give up and a second later she was like dont give up. Thx im about to watch this until i get those abs. Thx Rebecca

  • Thank you for this video. My daughter is 16 months old and it is getting more and more difficult to find time to workout. I really needed the encouragement.

  • You two are my “go to” for inspiration and new ideas for my fitness classes.  The web has lots of fitness “gurus”, but most are hard to listen to and watch.  You are easy on the eyes and ears and have lots of good new twists on the old faves…thanks!

  • My baby fell asleep during this workout too! I’ve also been struggling to get motivated to workout, and this definitely made it fun!

  • I was too busy feeling the burn that I didn’t realize the guy popping his head up in the background at 4:56… I swear I watched this video thousands of times and I’m just now noticing it lol! Great workout though!

  • I did this work out instead of going for a walk. It was super humid and I didn’t want to get too sweaty. Well, got super sweaty anyway! Thanks for a great workout!

  • 3 minutes high intensity warm-up that gets the blood pumping and then 18 minutes stretching makes no sense. And why bicep curls in Circuit 1 and 3? There are thousands of different exercises to do instead.

  • Hi, I would love it if you could show your post partum stomach. How big was your pouch before getting in such a good shape and what took for you to get rid of the stomach fat?

  • I know it’s not recommended until baby is 3 months but my little girl is 7 weeks old and she literally would not stop crying until I started doing this with her. I wonder if it was cause I was so active during my pregnancy
