Question: exercises for stomach


princessxali - Thu Dec 23, 2004 5:45 pm

hi there all,

I am wondering what is the best sort of exercise to get my stomach a bit flatter for the past 3 years I have been pregnant and had caesereans each time so where the scar is I have a bit of stomach that hangs over it will I ever get rid of this or should I learn to live with it?
my youngest is 15 months old now so is it safe to exercise on my stomach it still feels tender around the scar any help gratefully received.

Hi princessxali,
It is always best to begin with light exercise, avoiding crunches and situps at first. Try beginning with a light aroebic exercise. Remember, donīt jump into anything too quickly. If you begin to feel pain in your incision area, stop exercising at once. If the pain continues, be sure to let your doctor know as soon as possible.
If you all goes well then you should depend on crunches in addition to dieting. It takes time and alot of effort. But the results are always rewarding and long lasting.

Best regards,
