My client has 2 kids, the youngest is 4 and both delivered through caesarians. She has lost most of her baby weight, and we include lots of core training in her routines. Any suggestions on what else we can do and how realistic is it for her to expect her abs to return to pre-pregnancy firness/strength? How much more difficult is it to lose this baby fat than with vaginal deliveries?
So much of recovery from each pregnancy depends on pre-pregnancy status, what was done after the first pregnancy, the extent of tissue and possible nerve damage from the incisions, and what works for each individual client. Have you tried any unilateral resistance movements to work the obliques and transverse abd.? Are you teaching core activation techniques?
