  1. hi…
    i have question is this exercises target the side fat only? or target the lower belly pooch too
    when i do the exercises for my belly i fell the burn above the lower belly pooch area which is the area under the chest but i don’t fell any burn in the lower belly pooch… is this right or i am doing something wrong…pls i need your help desperately

    1. Each exercise targets a different portion of the belly. You should feel the burn all over your stomach by the time you have completed the workout. Be sure to watch the videos to ensure that you are using proper form.

  2. Hi, im 3 months post natal and just recovered from diastasi recti (quite a bad one of 8 cm). My physiotherapist thinks the gap now has shrunk back so I can start to do crunches etc which normally wouldn’t be recommended. Which one of these exercises you think are safe for me? Thanks
