Anyone here have experience using the Tupler Technique for diastasis recti? I have a bad one and am very interested in purchasing the splint and exercise DVD. Would like to hear from real people what their experience/success/fail with this was before I buy it. I am hoping that this "technique" is as good as it sounds. My diastasis is 3.5 fingers wide and I am sick of it. I use to have a tight tummy (before kids) and I still look about 5-6 months pregnant. My youngest is 2. I know I'll never look exactly the same as I did before kids, but I'd like to at least not look pregnant. Hope to hear good things about this. If not, is my only recourse surgery??

Not much experience, but I'll chime in with what I have! I also started my childbearing years with a tight tummy. I didn't quite have a six-pack, but there was nice definition. I was pregnant with twins last year and miscarrried at about 5 months. At that point, I was as large as many women are with a singleton pregnancy. I also had diastasis remaining from my first baby, about 2 years prior. My abs were a mess. I checked out Lose Your Mummy Tummy at the library and started doing some of the exercises. Within 3 months, I noticed a BIG difference. I wish I'd have taken actual measurements, but my diastasis went from about 3 finger-widths to 1. Of course, then I got pregnant again, so my abs are back to the mess they were! I did bind my belly postpartum this time, though, and I'm starting some light ab work now.
Now, I just need something to get rid of all this extra skin... Even if I ended up with killer abs, you'd never be able to see them...post #4 of 69/21/12 at 7:18pmThread StarterQuote:

That sounds encouraging! I think I am going to get the splint and DVD. Having a hard time with the whole situation today for some reason.Quote:

Yeah, me too. Hate the extra skin. That's another problem altogether.post #5 of 69/23/12 at 6:18pm
I was going to get the DVD, too, but I decided on Restore the Core. I just bought it last night, so I don't have a review for it yet. But it sounds from the website like the Tupler DVD isn't a workout in itself. After finding out that my abs are so shot that I can't even do leg raises (or even get my feet 2 inches off the floor while laying down), I really want a workout that has already been designed to help postpartum women recover their abdominal strength. With my DS's pregnancy, I just had the diastasis and didn't lose too much strength. This time... Ugh. After back-to-back pregnancies, being on modified bedrest for so long, and a c-section, I don't even have any muscle left to work with.
I'm feeling really discouraged. I didn't realize how bad everything was until I tried to exercise.

Hi I duno if this was posted but I was able to buy it here http://hstrial-cherylbjornson.homestead.com/~shop/dvd---diastasis-rehab-lose-your-mummy-tummy/150955/ for 25$ + 5$ shipping (didn't show up till I had paid and checkout out though weird!) and 2$ tax. So total 32$.
