It is ironic that the majority of the population no longer breathes (the most basic and critical of human functions) correctly.⠀
⠀
Even worse is the "inverse breathing pattern," which many people have adopted (women especially) under the false guise that "sucking in the stomach" is preferable. This is a particularly poor breathing pattern that often reflects stronger levels of habitual programming. ⠀

Break the cycle. See life changing results.⠀

The diaphragm can be considered the most important muscle in the body. Its weakness is often the underlying muscle imbalance that allows all other muscle imbalances to perpetuate.⠀
⠀
Learn what diaphragm activation looks and feels like, and see how properly activating this muscle can increase your clients' ability to perform all other exercises, including pushing during labor, and help decrease the risk of diastasis recti.⠀

Same workout as last time but with different rep scheme. This time it was heavy shoulder Presses, light bench Press (used dumbells instead of bar), medium chins and light to medium Squats. Last workout I did Cleans but realized clean for reps would burn me out so I switched to Squats. It felt good to get back into back Squats after a long break. ▪️▪️▪️ #workout #athleanx #NXT #strong #instafitness #instastrong #instafit #fitwomen #fitchicks #strongwomen #fitpregnancy #fit #fitforbirth #shoulderpress #squats

Today's workout ✔ I do better workouts mid-morning for sure. Too early and I'm SO groggy, too late and my body is already tired from a busy day playing with Lucy while the baby has dancing parties all day! The only real action that happens in the evening is going for walks with Luna! .
Happy to see weights in my strength portions increase. It's been a careful and gradual increase, but it's satisfying nonetheless! 💪

23 Weeks pregnant vlog is up (link in bio). I can't believe I'm starting my 6th month. Time flies... The baby weighs about as much as 4 bananas 🍌🍌🍌🍌and will be doubling in size this month! After the update I did a really fun Martial-arts themed workout. Even the dogs were psyched (they played non stop throughout). I call it: "I Can Still Kick Your @$$ Even Though I'm Pregnant" workout 😁 #pregnancy #update #vlog #babybump #prenatal #workout #kickass #fitpregnancy #fitforbirth #fitness #instafitness #instastrong #instafit #fitwomen #fitchicks #strongwomen #martialarts

Any fitness professional who embraces the possibility that he or she can help re-balance muscle, re-align the skeleton, and prevent the wear and tear on joints, will be leagues above the rest.⠀
⠀
With a consistent assessment, you can uncover muscle imbalances that would otherwise go unnoticed.⠀
⠀
Then, you can easily progress your client in a logical manner that will repay her immediately with comfort during pregnancy, will support her in labor, and will be her foundation for handling an infant and toddler with true strength.⠀

Luna is basically my babysitter here in TX. She let the toddler put leaves, grass, and mulch on her while I tackled a #homeworkout on the patio. She's just amazing! 🐾💕 #husky #bestfriends #toddlerlife .
5x8 strict press
.
10 min AMRAP 
2 deadlifts 
2 slam balls
2 pushups ...add 2 reps to each movement every round...
That was a good one! Yesterday was a lot of volume of accessory work, so today was the perfect quick follow-up.

Lots of accessory work today at the gym. It felt great though! Working out during pregnancy is odd and kind of chaotic. Some days, our body can surprise and impress us with its strength, other days it can suck every ounce of energy without a moment's notice. In the last couple of weeks, I've had great workouts and others that left me so frustrated that I would start to sniffle doing wall balls (not my best moment haha)...But the thoughts that drive me to go back to the gym, other than my love for it, is that I am working to be strong during delivery and have a healthy recovery to take care of baby #2 and Lucy. We are so blessed with our kiddos, both of whom are healthy, and it's my job to be there for them. So if I have a few bad workouts along the way that humble me way beyond my expectations, that's quite ok.

Posterior chain training is important for everyone, but perhaps even more so for women during pregnancy since you need strength in your glutes and lower back to help support your growing bump and changing centre of gravity.
-
The Fitting Rooms director @yaslouisa.pt is currently 25 weeks pregnant and following a 3 day weight-training programme to ensure her body is fit and strong for the pregnancy, labour and recovery. Her current programme includes deadlifts and 45 degree back extension to strengthen her lower back, glutes and hamstrings. At this stage in the pregnancy she’s had to take a slightly wider stance than normal on the deadlift to accommodate her growing bump and is working around 12 reps per exercise to ensure the intensity isn’t too much (lower reps = higher intensity).
-
Weight training is SO beneficial during pregnancy but it is always worth getting professional guidance to ensure you’re not putting yourself or your baby at risk!

Virtually everyone is already suffering or will eventually suffer from muscle imbalance. When your client gets pregnant and undergoes rapid biomechanical changes, she starts to feel aches and pains. ⠀
Some may be specific to pregnancy changes, but some are likely caused by muscle imbalances. ⠀
⠀
The original position of birth is a full hips-to-heel squat that many women today cannot do without raising their heels from the floor, let alone hold comfortably for hours on end. ⠀
Today, it is very rare to find a modern pregnant woman who will not need some form of corrective exercise, and an assessment process that makes her aware of the power that should exist within her body.⠀

Final Challenge of #athleanx #halflife training. 3 exercises each one for 3:20 minutes. Every time you hear the chime in the music you change position. This was brutal! I have to admit I cheated a bit: in the pushups I did not stay in strict Plank at the top, in the Bulgarian Torture Squats I straightened my leg all the way instead of keeping slight bend... The last exercise was the easiest plus I was getting a thorough bath courtesy of my dog... I did get a cramp in the middle. I ignored it even though I'm not supposed to... I was ok after so all is well... On to the next month with the next challenges it will bring. #bringiton #noexcuses #nopainnogain #fitpregnancy #fit #fitforbirth #strong #workout #brutal #fitness #instafitness #instastrong #instafit #fitwomen #fitchicks #strongwomen #athlean #timeundertension

Fit For Birth Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialists are leaders in the fitness industry.⠀
Proper assessment of a client's current physical state, fitness capabilities, and level of healing postpartum, are essential to a trainer's ability to help their client reach their goals.⠀
⠀
Once a woman has given birth, she is postpartum forever.⠀
Most pre/postnatal exercise certifications do not address this or tailor their fitness recommendations to those unique needs.⠀
⠀
Learning how to perform an accurate and safe assessment of a client is a skill taught in our course. You will understand diastasis recti, the pelvic floor, a woman's needs for her movement, lifestyle, mindset, and nutrition, equipping you to help your clients at a level far above anything else in the fitness industry!⠀

Corrective Exercise teaches you how to move with the correct muscles, enabling fluid joint movement and the potential avoidance of nearly any joint or muscle pain.⠀
⠀
Westernized fitness yoga is essentially movement centered on the breath. Yoga has become a mainstay for the prenatal population largely because there is a cultural acceptance that it is a safe “low-impact” exercise and, in a world that offers very little to the pregnant mom who traditionally has wondered if she should exercise at all, there is a relatively widespread availability of yoga classes.⠀
⠀
If you are practicing or teaching yoga, corrective exercise can enhance your practice.  Corrective exercise gives you knowledge of your specific imbalances, which allows you to know which poses are best for you, while revealing which poses may be worsening your alignment. ⠀
⠀
You may go to yoga class every week, hear the instructor say to breath deep into your belly, but have never been coached on how to actually activate the correct muscles.  How many people are doing yoga today with the wrong muscles? ⠀
⠀
That’s the power of corrective exercise. Yoga-goers (pregnant or not) can use it to assess their foundation alignment, and immediately improve their practice.⠀

Bust a move on a Thursday! Here's a quick little vid of me doing some mountain climbers on the TRX today at the "Y." My bump is making an appearance for those of you wondering 😜. Pregnant ladies! I recommend bringing your knees to the sides of your rib cage for ease and depth. Keep your hips up and your back flat and most importantly- use your abs! Pull them in! They still work 😂. The best part about the TRX system is you feel every muscle in your body working to maintain proper form 😊

Look at these awesome mamas working their core and getting strong from the inside out! I love teaching these classes and helping women become healthy and strong in their role as mama. As a Pre and Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist I focus on strengthening the core first and correctly, that way mamas can begin as early after giving birth as they want.

As a Pre and Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist I focus on strengthening the core first and correctly, that way mamas can begin as early after giving birth as they want. It’s gentle, effective, and life changing. Come join a class on Tuesdays at 10:00 and Fridays at 10:05 @pulsochtraningarstatorg Email Courtney@LivingHealthyHappy.com to attend.
Upper Body push workout. Added a twist at the top of the pushups as per Jeff Cavaliers suggestion to get extra activation of the chest. Had to modify the kickbacks that were espoused to be done with stomach on the ball. My baby bump gets in the way... Lol. ▪️▪️▪️ #athleanx #athlean #workout #upperbody #strength #fitness #instafitness #instastrong #instafit #fitwomen #fitchicks #exercise #lifting #fitpregnancy #fit #fitforbirth
Never underestimate how strong your mind & body can be! Physical preparation for labor is totally a thing 😉💪🏽- the more prepared the less medical intervention needed plus less fear of the process.
A couple of cool labor numbers to back this up: >> 35% decrease need for pain relief
>> 50% decrease need to induce
>> 50% decrease need for episiotomy
>> 75% decrease need for C-section

✔️Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist

This one means a lot. Being that my wife Sonal Dave is 4 months postnatal, my sister Monica Modha is 2 months postnatal and my cousin Neera Scarrozzo is 3 months postnatal. I am so excited about the endless possibilities I have to make a difference with them.

I feel a sense of gratitude for all the women out there who have gone through childbirth or are currently experiencing it. A women’s body is absolutely amazing and a woman should always feel strong and empowered through this process.

I feel extremely confident that I can walk along side any pre or post natal client and help them along this journey. A woman should not feel scared to train while pregnant provided she is doing it safely and with someone who is trained and understands what is involved.

Juicing tip: Cut and wash veggies in gallon sized ziplock baggies ahead of time to reduce time spent during the week
🥕 Really trying to get back to juicing but the cleanup and prep takes way too long during busy AMs before work. I actually haven't busted this thing out since I was pregnant! I mean..there's only so many hours in the day and with a kiddo now, I've just been buying fresh juice at the store. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Trying to change that..baby steps. This bag has beets, ginger, lemon, spinach, celery, dandelion leaves and carrots. Love this Breville! #juicing #alkaline #prep

A dysfunctional population is likely to get hurt or cause diastasis and other issues when doing exercises like bends and twists while pregnant. ⠀
⠀
On the other end of that spectrum is the fact that NOT learning how to do them correctly is more likely to cause an injury in activities of every-day life.⠀
⠀
A Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise specialist shows clients how to optimize her foundation core, so that her daily life bends and twists can be performed with ease and safe function!⠀

Meet my bench. It was purchased on clearance for $19 when I was in Rx school. Easily folds up to be stored in whatevs living situation I've been in and easily busted out when needed for therapy. I'm attached to this thing now; we're buds. We have no extra room for a designated workout area for this guy + dumbbells + resistance bands + bosu cozy up in a corner of my room and do the trick on breaks/lunches when I snooze 😴. Cheers to some of the best investments. 🍾 #flexfriday #dontneedafancygym #justmeandmybench #postpartum

A CASE STUDY⠀
Her doctor’s suggestions:⠀
• Go back on birth control pill to resume cycle.⠀
• Discuss fertility treatment options when she wanted to get pregnant.⠀
• Eat more food (possibly add in Boost/Ensure protein drinks) and exercise less.⠀
⠀
INSTEAD...⠀
She decided that her body could heal itself. She went on to treat the hypothalamic amenorrhea successfully on her own.⠀

Slowly, but surely, getting back to my more normal workouts. Difficult not to get discouraged. Rehab is a necessary part of the health process, whether from an injury, pregnancy, delivery, a c section, or diastasis recti. It was part of my motivation to become a corrective exercise specialist, not just a personal trainer, so that I could really focus on correcting imbalances and restoring proper movement and function. #nogym #nogymnoproblem #csectionrecovery #fit #fitmom #rehab #diastasisrecti #diastasisrectirepair #balance #correctiveexercise #correctiveexercisespecialist #fitforbirth #fitformotherhood #backtoscratch #backtoscratchllc

This morning's #workout at the #patiogym (😉) left me dripping with sweat. I modified "The Chief" in both weight and form. So basically, I borrowed the movements and rep scheme! Most of the rounds (I lost track), I felt like I could have done RX, but since I haven't been doing 95lb recently, I went lighter. It's always better to be cautious and make future adjustments! I'll definitely work in heavier EMOMs in upcoming workouts (yay!).
.

"Pregnant Chief"
15 min AMRAP 
3 power cleans *scaled to 75 lb*
6 pushups 
9 air squats .

Joanie Johnson, @joaniejohnson_fpc, co-creator of the Fit Pregnancy Club (FPC) featured in this article, is one of our Fit For Birth trainers!⠀
⠀
She says, "I am a holistic health coach and wanted a course that was going to approach pre/post natal pregnancy training with a comprehensive understanding of the body. Other certifications seemed to have an out of date, rigid approach to training. Fit for Birth's approach is constantly staying current, aware that the science is always being updated and training women in a way that is suitable for their body type and lifestyle."⠀
⠀
We love what she's created for pregnant moms in New York City:⠀
⠀
"When Carolina Gunnarsson was pregnant with her first child, she searched high and low for a workout class that met her standards...So she teamed up with prenatal trainer Joanie Johnson to create the Fit Pregnancy Club... A growing number of women are committed to keeping up their exercise routines as their pregnancies advance..."⠀

Diastasis Recti is a foundational core dysfunction that often occurs in pre and postnatal women, and fitness professionals must be able to intelligently address it if your client desires optimal function.⠀
⠀
Diastasis Recti is commonly defined as abdominal separation. ⠀
It occurs in pregnant and postpartum women, but also in newborn babies and even large-bellied men. ⠀
This kind of core dysfunction is so widely pervasive in our society that even when a client doesn’t yet show a diastasis separation, she is likely at risk. ⠀
⠀
Core dysfunctions that result in diastasis are likely to be associated with or correlate to a number of other debilitations that are commonly exacerbated around the perinatal period.⠀
⠀
This is, however,  a dysfunction that can typically be healed through corrective exercise! A fitness professional can teach specific activations for the inner unit, a solution that will last a lifetime, have no side effects, and require no surgery.⠀

Definitely not restricting myself to a cardio only based training regimen (cardio queen 🚫) BUT aerobic exercise reaps cardiovascular (and mental) benefits. Simple. Personally, I do a mix of HIIT and steady stead cardio (time permitting) but my focus and what has changed my body composition over these years is STRENGTH training. What is HIIT? It's where you alternate an intense burst of activity with a less intense active resting period. Time is limited these days & when I do engage in cardio, HIIT (high-intensity interval training) is what I can manage to do in 10-15 minutes a few times a week
➡️ So many benefits are associated with HIIT. Studies have shown that performing HIIT can improve overall fitness, help lower insulin resistance, and may even lead to a longer life
➡️ How it makes me feel emotionally is why I think I go back for more. A recent study used PET neuroimaging and revealed that this type of high intensity training significantly increases endorphin release and opioid peptides in brain areas associated with controlling emotion and pain
➡️ This is my drug and therapy and I am totally fine with it

Another FIRST! Cheers to fall, football and hoodies. 🍂 My small goal for this month ➡️ be consistent with my water intake! Sure, I love setting long term goals but I always feel more motivated when I see results from my goals that are achievable in a shorter timeframe. For me, IT ALWAYS STARTS WITH WATER. If I don't drink enough, it shows up on my face, my energy levels are lower and I'm grazing because I'm mistaking my thirst for hunger. 😝 I aim for 100-120 oz a day. I have to carry something with me that I can fill up a few times to ensure I am getting it in! When I jump back into consistent water intake, I do feel like nemo but your body figures it out. I usually quit feeling so full and a few days later, boom --> feeling better! I know what to do 🙄, it's just the process of doing it CONSISTENTLY. Start from the inside out & hydrate. You can try all the fancy creams, energy drinks and preworkouts..nothing really compares to the long term benefits of hydration. Some 🍾 is always nice too, but be sure to follow a glass with another of water 😜. Happy October! #drank #hydration #shorttermgoals

A breakfast staple I never get sick of: 1/3 cup old fashioned oats cooked in unsweetened almond milk with cinnamon, vanilla extract and Himalayan salt. Topped with sugar free pancake syrup (you can use honey or agave). I also throw in some vanilla protein powder! Sometimes I'll dash some walnuts, almond slivers, blueberries. I won't add granola on top of this. Granola is actually often packed with unnecessary sugar and cals & does not reap all the best benefits. Be smart about your intake. You can do all the workouts in the gym, but if you don't become aware about your intake, forget seeing results. THIS is always bowl-lickin'-good. Yes, I lick this bowl. 😝 #breakfast #carbs #postworkout

When you do exercises that are unilateral or off balance, you strengthen your core because it has to work harder to stabilize. In this workout all the exercises will do this will do just that. Check out the video to do it with me (link in bio). It'll only take about 5 to 15 minutes and all you need is a chair and a dumbbell.

NEWFLASH! Exercise in pregnancy does NOT guarantee you won't go "over due" or that you will have a straightforward labour and delivery....
This was me a year ago at 42 weeks pregnant with baby number 3... my first two children had been born on or a week before their due dates... which let's remember should really be a "due month" as it's just an estimate of baby's arrival! However, two days later at 16 days over the due date and without intervention my baby boy made his appearance. 
So, I confess, I exercised throughout my entire pregnancy yet still my baby made me wait! He arrived safely when he was ready 🤣. However, I was SO glad I kept exercising as being fit and strong helped get me through those extra weeks of pregnancy, it got me through another long labour and importantly it helped me recover from the birth quicker. 
So exercise in pregnancy for strength and fitness because babies, labour and birth (like motherhood!) can be unpredictable and out of your control at times 😂🤰💪👶

How can I not love working out when I get to come here?!
Super grateful this gorgeous gym #eqxlacosta opened near me.
Had another great workout with @adeleasaurus.flex this morning that I really needed after a hectic week last week.
If you saw my story, hubby had surgery but he's on the mend now. 🙌🏼
Life is getting back to "normal" and I get to focus more on me and my babies 🤰🏼👩‍👦
Exercise I'm currently working on improving... side lunge/lateral squat! I am SO tight.

Seizing little moments of movement (and moments where your baby is contained) is what its all about as a mom, making sure to use my core belly breathing which maximizes effectiveness and stengthens the inner core unit as a whole. A couple of these ab moves were inspired by @makeitworkmomma, who emphasized thinking outside of traditional "ab" exercises postpartum , couldn't agree more!

I realized I misread the instructions and made my workouts too easy. I thought I was supposed to do 2 sets in general but really I was supposed to do 3 sets that consisted of 2 parts: first part is 1.5reps, second part is half the weight (I did more than that) trying to double the reps. So I decided to repeat the workouts that I messed up. In these videos I filmed only the first time I did it, but wrote how I changed it later when I did it right. (Video 1 is anterior legs, video 2 is posterior). ▪️▪️▪️#noexcuses #nopainnogain #legday #athleanx #workout #fitness #instafitness #instastrong #instafit #fitwomen #fitchicks #exercise #fitpregnancy #strength #strongisbeautiful #strongwomen #pregnant #stronglegs #fitforbirth

Babies of exercising moms receive more nutrients, feel less stress, are given more oxygen, and have a healthier prenatal environment! ⠀
⠀
Studies show that placentas of moms who exercise regularly through early and mid pregnancy grow faster and function better than the placentas of mothers who don’t exercise.⠀
⠀
Fitness during pregnancy is a powerful wellness tool.⠀
Take your coaching deeper than just trimester-specific exercises with Fit For Birth.⠀

24 week side by side. 
I am noticeably smaller with my current pregnancy when compared to my first. The general rule is that you are bigger sooner with each subsequent pregnancy, because your body is like "Oh, I got this. We've been here before." Or what some people call 'muscle memory.' .
In my first pregnancy, I practiced and taught yoga, walked, and swam. I had some serious piriformis and SI Joint pain. At 16 weeks I couldn't walk for 3 days, had two trips the the ER, and it took another 2-3 weeks before I could walk "normally." Even after delivering, things didn't go back to normal. Alex was healthy; it was my body that was failing. A previous muscle imbalance was exacerbated from my changing body. 
For my current pregnancy, I practice yoga, lift weights (both heavy and light), run, and go to #Fit4Mom Stroller classes. I also have a two-year old. I have a physical therapist and receive dry needling sessions. I'm also close to finishing my pre & postnatal corrective exercise specialist certification with @fitforbirth. I have been focusing on my inner core unit and diaphragmatic breathing like nobody's business. 
I truly believe the difference that I see is because of the magic that is corrective exercise and a properly functioning inner core unit. 
If you do anything today... let it be breathing from your diaphragm rather than chest/shoulders. Total lifestyle game-changer. 
Thank you @fitforbirth for following your calling and being a voice in not only pre & postnatal fitness but overall physical-mental-emotional wellbeing.

The infamous cues of pulling the bellybutton to spine to engage the core will only have your clients isolating the front of their Transverse Abdominis, shutting off the other abdominal muscles. ⠀
⠀
This can hinder you producing fast results with postpartum clients who need a highly functional TVA in order to recover quickly and handle the demands of carrying their newborn . ⠀
⠀
Your clients need to connect with the entire circumference of the TVA, diaphragm, obliques, rectus abdominis and pelvic floor. Are you coaching this?⠀
⠀
The Fit For Birth Core Breathing Belly Bump™ teaches this complete core activation and relaxation, and the results our trainers see in their clients is astounding. Are you struggling to help your clients truly connect to their core and pelvic floor? We can teach you what you need to take your personal training to the next level and truly serve ALL of your clients.⠀

""Hi James! ⠀
 Just want to let you know that not only the manual but also the videos have been so extremely helpful in understanding your method. ⠀
⠀
My past certifications, although I was there in person, I felt lacked some detail, and bringing in actually pregnant women and practicing assessments was great. ⠀
⠀
I am a very visual person so being able to watch other trainers go through it was very beneficial, great component. "⠀

Nothing good comes from remaining stagnant, right? Get out of your comfort zone and shake things up a little. You never know where you will end up. 💃🏽 #andwhenyoudotheuniversedropssomemore 😂🙄 #justkeepswimming #ijustwanttimetobrushmyhair
25ish weeks pregnant (January '16) ➡️ 7 months post partum (January '17)
✔️ So many changes emotionally and physically between these two photos ✔️ Immediately post partum, life was nuts. My focus was never on abs/muscular aesthetics. I employed breathing techniques the day I got home with whatever 5-15 minutes I had (which I felt was a challenge BC I rem. all too well it was a 💩 show)
✔️My body didn't even look pre-babyish until 4-5 months PP. I lost 10 of 30 lbs initially but honestly had to remind myself to stop looking in the mirror and scale and just keep with it. 8 weeks later, I felt like things were slowly heading in the right direction ✔️ If you go too hard, too fast, post partum - you are at risk for diastasis and other pelvic dysfunctions. There are WAY more important things to "fix" in the beginning than your immediate aesthetics. Breathing, kegels, pelvic strength and your mental health should take priority
✔️You know what else is hard? Being consistent even though you can't cut calories since you're BF, choosing "cleaner" foods BC supposedly say you look and feel better (I knew it all but found it hard since my appetite skyrocketed when I BF 🙄)
✔️ Looking back, around 2-4 months PP, I would BF her, pump, then hit the gym or outdoors at 4:30 AM even though I was dead. Now that I think about it, I craved the endorphins so hard. Prob BC I had some post partum blues? I don't know. What I do know is that I warded off whatever sadness I felt by getting away in my own mental space and using fitness. It was like I would do anything to just FEEL BETTER. Not looks
✔️ Long story long (😂 as my friends would say) post partum is HARD. I understand you want to feel 100% again & have your jeans fit perfectly but it's really beyond that. At one point, my kiddo didn't want to swaddle, take a bottle, a paci, sit in a car seat or even be in public, it sucked. You're not supp. to be superwoman. Just stay in your lane, you do you & focus on long term improvements
✔️ You're not selfish for giving yourself a few min a day to better yourself for your family in that initial period. Investing some time in yourself goes a LONG way for your whole fam & you. Just being honest.
