Pelvic Floor - the fast twitch muscle. Let's work it baby!

Pelvic Floor exercises can be done in any position, at any time! If you have a particularly weak Pelvic Floor, start these exercises whilst laying down and progress to standing or sitting.

The Pelvic floor is made up of two different types of muscle which mean you want to do two different types of Pelvic Floor exercise - one fast and one slow.

Fast:

  • Legs slightly apart. If laying down, legs are also bent.

  • Draw up the back passage - as if to stop yourself passing wind!

  • Draw up the front passage - as if to stop yourself weeing!

  • Squeeze

  • Release

  • Repeat - 10 times

See if you can eventually squeeze, release, rest and repeat multiple times a day.

Please, do not worry if you cannot squeeze, release and repeat 10 times at first. Build up to it.
