A free pelvic floor safe workout for mums and mums-to-be
There are so many options when it comes to exercise classes, from Crossfit to Bikram yoga, Aerobics to Pilates and everything in between.
But not all exercises are safe during pregnancy and in the initial postnatal period
AND not all instructors are suitably qualified to support women during this stage of life.
FitRight founder, Women’s Health Physio, Taryn Watson has made it her business to ensure women can access safe workouts during a time when their bodies require some extra care.
She has generously shared one of her workouts for free in the video below.
About this workout for mums
This 30-minute exercise routine has been created by Women’s Health Physiotherapist Taryn Watson and is suitable for both pregnant and non-pregnant women.
It is designed as an example of a ‘pelvic floor friendly’ workout routine and aims to show how you can incorporate cardio, pelvic floor, abs and glutes into a challenging but low impact and low load workout.
The only equipment required is a piece of theraband (mine is Blue strength) however it can be done without this.
Pregnancy precautions to be aware of include ensuring that you’re able to hold a conversation during the workout, and not working through any pelvic joint (or other) pain.
This routine makes the assumption that you have had a pelvic floor assessment with a physiotherapist with extra training in pelvic health.
Would you like access to more workouts like this for only $1?
