Nothing makes me happier than seeing my customers loving and benefiting from my program. Ellissa says: "I've been working out with Strong by Alex since my first trimester and I'm so glad I found this program! With SBA, I know that all my workouts are safe and appropriate for my stage of pregnancy. The workouts are only 24 minutes which is totally achievable and realistic for me, espeically on the days when my energy levels are low. I would definitely recommend this program to my friends when they get pregnant!" ... See MoreSee Less

Abdominal separation AKA Diastasis Recti is the separation of your abdominal muscles that happens in the second or third trimester and usually returns to normal by around 8 weeks postpartum. But for some women, it takes longer or doesn't ever return to normal. ⁠
Certain exercises when one has abdominal separation can put too much strain on your abdomen which can make the separation worse and also cause all sorts of problems such as incontinence issues, back and/or pelvic pain and poor posture. ⁠
This is why it is soo important to ONLY do exercises and lift weights that are suitable for pregnancy. It is also a big reason why it is crucial to not rush into smashing yourself following birth and instead focus on rebuilding that core strength which will encourage the rectus abdominus (6 pack) to come back together. ⁠

THIS POST IS FOR MY POST NATAL LADIES --> So many of my clients ask me how to lose weight after childbirth and what I always tell them is TAKE YOUR TIME. Don't put too much pressure on yourself! Focus on adjusting to your new life and WHEN you're ready, start introducing movement back into your routine. Once this becomes a norm, you can start looking at what you're eating. First of all, I don't recommend going on a crash diet as they are unsustainable and also have been shown to result in weight GAIN in the long run. What I do recommend is finding a way of eating that works for you and your lifestyle. I have listed some research based approaches below which have been show to improve metabolic health and promote fat burning. ⁠
1. Intermittent fast: This is where you don't eat anything for a substantial amount of your day. Usually 15 or 16 hours fasting, leaving just an 8 hour window for eating (e.g only eat between 12pm and 8pm) **you still need to eat healthy, i.e. no junk food in order to see results. ⁠
2. Low carb, high protein meal plan: This involves avoiding foods that are white and brown (excluding meat). if you choose this option, it is important that you are eating enough protein and vegetables to keep full. ⁠
When deciding what works for you, the important thing to remember is this is a LIFESTYLE change. It has to be an approach that you can maintain! ⁠
There is so much to weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle, and it's impossible to fit it all into one post so if you have any questions, please comment below or dm me. Happy to answer any questions you may have! 😊⁠

KEEP YOUR INDEPENDENCE! Don't let getting up out of a chair, picking things up off the floor, looking after your other kids or simply walking up the stairs be a struggle during your pregnancy. Just a little bit of regular movement can help you get through your everyday activities that little bit easier. 👌👌
