Pregnant & Postpartum Fitness: Let’s Talk About Pelvic Floors (featured on austinfitmagazine.com)
Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles that Coach Sadie lovingly calls your “muscle hammock” that, when healthy, not only prevents you from peeing when you shouldn’t, but also contributes to your lower back, core, and spinal strength and stability as well. Just like any other muscle group, your pelvic floor needs to be engaged and exercised in order to function properly for the long haul.
“So if we possess weakness in our pelvic floors, we will commonly experience incontinence as a symptom. But as active humans who run and jump and push and pull and throw, ignoring symptoms of a weak pelvic floor may be putting our bodies at risk for serious and/or long-term injury.”
As an athlete who has experience in training through pregnancy and how to train during the most tender parts of postpartum recovery, Coach Sadie knows the importance of this muscle hammock. To learn more for yourself, check out the full article over at Austin Fit Magazine here.
