What is diastasis recti and how can it be avoided?
Diastasis recti is a separation of the rectus abdominis, due to severe tension on the abdomen.

I confront my fears to better overcome them

How do I stop being afraid?
Sometimes fears are vague or unconscious, so as soon as I feel anxious or feel that something is holding me back from doing something, I start by identifying the source of my fears. I find simple solutions to regain my composure and then I make more informed decisions that are not dictated by fear. By accepting my fears and taming them, I can even transform them into a strength and make them a driving force for movement in the right direction.

My nutrition guide: What to eat before and after your workout

What should you eat before and after training?

Before training, I prefer low glycemic index carbohydrates, so that I have energy for a long time. I avoid eating too much
fat, sugar and spices and ideally wait two hours between a meal and exercise. After a workout, proteins and healthy fatty
acids help me recover well, and I also rely on antioxidants by including fruit and vegetables in my diet.
