Pre & Postnatal Core Exercises to Avoid

As we discussed in The #1 Most Effective Core Exercise, proper core training can be the key to preventing pregnancy pains, facilitating an easier labor, and expediting your postpartum recovery. However, doing certain core exercises at various stages of your pregnancy or postpartum recovery could actually increase your risk of experiencing pains or injuries like Diastasis Recti or Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

To help you fully understand what core exercises (and other movements) should be avoided or regressed by trimester or postpartum stage, we created the FREE Movements to Avoid Guide below. Learn what to avoid or regress at various stages of pregnancy or postpartum recovery — with evidence-based information as to why. Then, you’ll learn what movements to focus on instead to help mitigate pregnancy pains & injuries and expedite your postpartum recovery.
