Normally, on an average day, or at a big family dinner at the weekend, when we go shopping we have to carry quite heavy weights. We normally carry what we buy in bags. This also means that as we walk we have to keep the bags away from our legs so that the bags won’t hit them.
This puts a load on our spine and the middle part of the body, where the only bolstering elements are the muscles. One of these muscles are our abdominal muscles with diastasis recti. During these moments, when we carry those bags, we should pay attention to hold our belly in a stable position, or else the gap between our abdominal muscles will widen due increased pressure inside the belly because of heavier breathing.
