Losing tummy weight postpartum: Fitness star Tiffiny Hall shares shares advice for losing ‘mum tum’

Fitness influencer Tiffiny Hall has undergone a remarkable body transformation since welcoming her second child Vada in May.

The celebrity trainer admitted that she found it “difficult” to regain strength in her lower abdomen, and shared the advice she learned that “blew her mind”.

In the helpful video, Hall, who rose to fame as a trainer on The Biggest Loser, explained that she makes the mistake of working her upper abs and not her lower abs.

“It blew my mind because I work hard – but on the wrong things. It didn’t occur to me,” she said in a TikTok video.

Hall explained that she went to the physio after she was “worried about my stomach” because she couldn’t get her “core” back.

“I hate these terms, but I have the ‘mommy,’ the ‘mommy bag,’ it all happens,” she said.

“What happened is that my upper abs took over and my lower abs weren’t turned on at all,” she said, admitting that she had “neglected” her lower abs.

“But I shouldn’t get impatient – I even asked the physio about a tummy tuck! Not that I ever would because I have to put in the hard work.

“But she said that wouldn’t even work because umbilical cords focus on separation, but in a mum the separation isn’t the problem – it’s lower, that’s the problem.”

Speaking candidly, Hall said it was “so hard to deal with” and she was “dreading the summer”.

As for what will help with the lower abs, Hall said “the basics” will do the trick — including pelvic tilts and leg raises.

“It’s not going to be easy and it’s going to take ages.”

Viewers in the comments continued to express their appreciation for Hall’s honesty, with many admitting to being on a similar fitness journey.

“Oh how I admire you being so real and raw these days,” one comment began.

“As a real-life mom with a real-life mom, it would be so relatable to give us tips and tricks.”

“Thank you for sharing such normal feelings and thoughts that we all have as moms! So refreshing,” said another.

“Wow, I have the same problem and everything you said makes so much sense. Thank you,” a TikTok user added.

Fourth trimester

The mother-of-two is open about the pressure to “bounce back” since giving birth in May.

Instead of trying to “bounce back” to her pre-pregnancy body, Hall said it’s important for new mums to “bounce forward”.

“It’s not easy. It’s not easy to bounce forward and take the pressure off,” she said on Instagram in May.

“I stand in front of my mirror and look at my new body with my big bump, Vada’s house, and it’s really hard to accept that it’s going to take time.

“I’m also very emotional,” she added before starting to cry.

“But it will take time. Healing takes time.

“It also depends on what (kind of) birth you had.

“I’ve got some stitches and stuff going on and it’s all a bit painful.

“But she is absolutely beautiful. She is worth it. “

Hall said her four-year-old son Arnold asked why her belly was “so big”.

“Bless him. He keeps saying, ‘Is there another baby in there, Mom?'” she revealed.

“I try to explain to him that it takes a long time for bodies to return to normal.

“And it’s hard to accept, but you have to take it one day at a time.”

‘Be good to yourself’

The new mom said it’s important not to let the “negative thoughts” take over.

“Everything the mind says, the body hears — and you really have to remember that,” she said.
