    The latest Success Story at MDA is pretty crazy. 105lbs in less than a year. Interestingly, his workout regimen includes more chronic cardio than most are likely to do here, and lifting in higher rep ranges, gives you something to think about though, sometimes I think we get too into that "workout less!" mindset. Check it out though, good story. Incredible how people just look so much younger.

    Since I don't have the book but DO have diastasis, could you share how you fixed yours?

    I wouldn't order the book just for the exercise - it's probably at the library. Basically, it involves lying on your back with knees bent, then crossing your arms across your abdominals, pushing the two sides of the muscle together to close the gap, then doing a few (very few immediately postpartum, then increasing) crunches.

    I haven't done them the last two pregnancies and just checked and yep, diastasis closed. I have done exactly zero crunches in the last year since my youngest was born. The gap is always very, very wide during pregnancy, several fingers wide. So I don't know if the exercise really helped, or it would have closed on its own, but I think maybe the exercise helped it closed faster. Maybe.
