Your core is a series of muscles that connects from your abs to other parts of your body. Almost every movement in your body relies on your core, which acts as a stabiliser for movement. Higher core stability means there is a lower risk of injury.

When you gain weight, be it from dietary influences or pregnancy, the connective tissue stretches, causing the muscles to pull outward and create a gap in the middle. This is known as rectus diastasis.

If your back is bothering you, this condition may be to blame. Rectus diastasis can lead to poor posture and an unstable spine, resulting in a litany of debilitating back problems.
