If your six-pack is split down the middle after pregnancy or due to overtraining, you are no doubt willing to try anything to pull it back together. The Internet offers scores of solutions for resolving diastasis rectus abdominis, or DRA, ranging from tips on bracing and binding, to exercises designed to bridge the gap.
