Would you believe me if I told you that kegels are not the only way to strengthen your pelvic floor? How about if I told you that planks and sit ups are safe even if you have ab separation (aka diastasis recti)? Let’s try one more…that you can lift weights AND reduce vaginal heaviness at the same time?
Yes, all of these things are 100% possible, no matter where you are starting from. Since the pelvic floor hardly ever works in isolation, but instead works with so many other parts of our body, it is so important that we learn to connect our pelvic floor with functional movement.
What does functional movement mean? Think squats, deadlifts, overhead press, lunges, push ups. Or standing up from a chair, rolling out of bed, lifting your kids, putting dishes away…
And guess what? Our prenatal and postpartum fitness class incorporates all of the above. It’s 45 minutes of functional movement, strength training, cardio, core, and a little bit of yoga all in one. You can bet on breaking a sweat (or choose not to if that’s your thing).
To show you exactly what class can look like, try this workout from our April 8th class:
So now that you are on board, sign up and join us at our next class on Fridays at 10am. It doesn’t matter what stage of parenthood you are at, or what fitness experience you have. All are welcome!
