Stretching is a Big No No If You Have a Diastasis!
Speaking of stretching, essentially, you don’t want to do any activities that stretch your connective tissue.
When you arch your back this flare your ribs and stretches your connective tissue. Your back arches when doing yoga movements such as greeting to the sun, swimming and gymnastics. A forward crossover movement causes a shearing action of the abdominal muscles and this also stretches the connective tissue.
This forward crossover movement can be found in activities like tennis, golf , softball and working your oblique's in a back lying position.
I realize that many fitness classes and personal trainers require people to do these kinds of exercises, so I’ve created a pre-emptive strike in the form of a printable nurse’s note—kind of like a “get out of jail for free” card, explaining that you are following my program and why such exercises are harmful to you. You can find the note on TuplerTechnique.com and called Check Your Belly.
