Pelvic Floor Training
Are you (man or woman) at risk for pelvic floor dysfunction? If you answer “yes” to 2 or more the questions below, please take this very seriously. Do you:
- “Train” your abdominal’s the traditional way through crunches, roll ups, and reverse curls?
- Perform intense physical exercise such as jumping jacks, squat jumps, running?
- Suffer from having to go pee more often than normal?
- Wake up at night to pee?
- Feel pressure or discomfort (especially during sex) in your Pelvic area (women)?
- Feel a bit of discomfort in your prostate area (men)?
- Have low back pain?
- Have a pooch in your lower belly that you just can’t seem to get rid of?
- Have digestive disorders such as leaky gut?
Maybe you don’t have a prolapse yet. But if you answered yes to 2 or more of these questions you are already at risk. It’s time to fill out a comprehensive questionnaire to find out.
Read this blog post to find out more about the symptoms and why doing traditional sit-ups and HIIT training is so risky.
Prolapse is becoming an epidemic and there is now an incredible need for Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy and Low Pressure Fitness. It is not ok to look hard and sexy, but pee yourself as a result of it!
There is hope of getting your groove back. Trust me as I tell you from experience that Low Pressure Fitness (LPF) is a non-traditional functional core training program for women AND men that really works to correct and prevent certain dysfunctions. Functional core exercise such as LPF relieves the inter-abdominal pressure through breathing and abdominal vacuuming exercises that retrain the entire core to strengthen eccentrically. When muscles are trained eccentrically, they are stronger than when they are trained concentrically. LPF can help you rock your six pack, but it will also safely:
- Decrease waist size
- Improve and lengthen posture
- Flatten your abs
- Improve circulation and respiration
- Improve athletic performance
- Prepare your body for pregnancy (and recover afterwards)
- Recover your pelvic health
- Improve your abdominal tone
- Improve diastasis recti after childbirth
The breathing exercises and stability-focused core work she has taught me over the past couple of months have definitely helped tone my core in a functional way; my pants are looser; and the prolapse flare ups I have had in the past have almost disappeared.
I get that this is likely a new concept for you. And it’s OK that you didn’t know that you are hurting yourself in your current training methods.You are not alone. Read this blog to find out more.
