Why you should know the biomechanics of abdominal separation.
Things your clients may split:
a training session, with a friend
their pants, while doing a deep squat
their abdominal muscles
Sometimes an unnatural divide can develop between the two sides of the rectus abdominis muscle bundles, a condition doctors call diastasis recti. It’s usually associated with pregnancy, but it can happen to men and children in addition to moms-to-be. If you have clients suffering from diastasis recti, chances are they are going to be interested in how the separation came about and how they can fix it.
