Hi Michelle, I have a doubt… I delivered by first baby one yr before… it's c section…. I still have a bulged and stubborn stomach below my chest exactly near upper abdomen… And also while I lie down on my back the stomach is flat… And when I lift my head while lying down… My belly button comes out.. Is it recti diastasis.

Not sure if believe all this. Crunches use the same ab muscles

Jane Tiller says:

Hello! Thank you so much for this video! Tried the workouts today and felt great engagement. I spent some time doing intense ab workouts that I shouldn’t have and have stopped them and am focusing on repairing now.

My question is I feel like my right side is much stronger than my left. Should I do more exercises on the left side to compensate?
