Tupler Tips Latest Video: Will Planks Make My Diastasis Larger?

DOWNLOAD DIASTSIS RECTI EXERCISE TIPS

Are you wondering if planks will make your diastasis larger?

Well, it depends upon what type of planks you are doing.

I've been treating this program for 30 years now and one thing I know for sure is that if you are exercising in a downward facing abdominal position, it can make your diastasis larger.

downward facing abdominal position

In this position it is very difficult to engage your abdominal muscles but most importantly, all the weight of your organs is on your weak connective tissue and that stretches and weakens it. In week six of my program

after you have strengthened your innermost abdominal muscle, which is called the transverse muscle, you can do planks in a standing or side-lying position.

What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis Recti is what happens when the connective tissue of your stomach muscles due to:

pregnancy,

weight gain in the abdominal area,

abdominal surgery,

improper exercises (i.e. crunches & Pilates 100), &

gymnastics

The combination of weakened abdominal muscles and increased intra-abdominal pressure causes a continuous stretching in both a forward and sideways direction of the connective tissue that's in between the outermost muscles.

If you experience any pain, bloating, back pain or discomfort while doing physical activity it could be because of your Diastasis Recti. Read on for more information about the role of the Together Tape™ in the process of narrowing the gap between your recti muscles.

The Together Tape™ and how it can help with Diastasis Recti

The Together Tape™ is designed to aid in the healing of a Diastasis Recti. The tape works in combination with the Diastasis Rehab Splint® to enhance the closure process of a Diastasis Recti . When you're unable to wear the Diastasis Rehab Splint®, the tape can be worn on its own.

How the Together Tape™ aids in narrowing the gap of your diastasis

The tape works in a similar way to a Butterfly Band-Aid to bring the muscles and connective tissue together. When the tape is stretched as it is applied, it applies a pulling effect to go back to its original "un-stretched" position once it is placed on the skin. The skin's continual recoiling sends signals to the connective tissue and muscles, telling them to move in the same direction as the tape.

Cons of using the Together Tape™

At first, because the skin on your belly is so delicate, you might experience an allergic reaction to the Together Tape™.

Stop using the tape and wait a week if you have an allergic response. During this time, apply the Corrective Connective Tissue Cream. Your skin should be desensitized after a week, and you can begin using the tape again.

The tape is water resistant but not water proof.

Pros of using the Together Tape™

The Together Tape™ provides you with a perfect option when you can’t wear the Diastasis Rehab Splint®. It would seem awkward to wear a splint underneath a swimsuit but the Together Tape™ would go together perfectly with a one-piece swimsuit.
