Why is it so important to build strength after abdominal surgery?
We are often finding ladies who have had abdominal surgery really struggling with getting back to feeling right in their bodies again.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of information for these women after the early days of recovery.
The question we are often asked is, “I am X weeks post-surgery, I want to rebuild my strength, where do I start?”
Or they don’t know that they should build up gradually so end up going to a class they think is right but where the exercises are completely unsuitableuntil they have built that lower layer or strength first and end up causing more harm than good.
We want to explain the importance of this type of training and put it a different way.
If you had a knee operation you would take your time to recover and would slowly do the basic exercises at home before hitting the gym on the whole right?
This is exactly the same for abdominal surgery which is why we have developed our courses to help you know exactly what basic steps you need to take before going back to “normal” exercise.
Remember you have had a problem that you have had to have surgery for, this problem/ weakness or growth will have caused an imbalance through your core and thus put pressure through other muscles causing a knock-on effect. We want to restore that balance so you can reduce the post-surgery pains, keep scar tissue moving and generally feel better.
