DAVID Beckham is hoping to
stretch his career out until he’s 40 — by doing body-bending Pilates exercises.The England star, 34 — subject of hit film
Bend It Like Beckham — says he is in his best shape in years due to an
hour-long daily routine.
He is desperate to show Three Lions boss
Fabio Capello he is fit enough for next year’s World Cup in South Africa, and
play on for years afterwards.
Diastasis Recti or tummy gap
So you have a Diastasis
Recti, where there is a gap running in the muscles (more then 2 fingers gap, 2
or less is fine) down the front of your tummy. What now?
We want to try, with gentle
exercise, to correct the gap (bring it back together). Why? Because Diastasis
Recti is associated with a weak core including week pelvic floor and can lead
to a lack of strength & stability in the entire pelvic region &
midsection. Weakness in these areas could contribute to back pain, bad posture,
pelvic floor dysfunctions, hernia, as well as potentially leaving you with a
tummy that looks like you are still months pregnant aka THE Mummy Tummy.
