5 simple exercise tweaks to incorporate pelvic floor into your workout! Who wants to add another exercise to their list or a whole extra workout? Not me, and I don’t know many women who have time for that. But here is what I see with women that I treat and work with…they get some results by doing their exercises with me, but then if they don’t keep them up, they start to go backward. I’ve been brainstorming about this, and I have some ideas…but today I want to share with you FIVE easy tweaks on basic exercises that intentionally engage the pelvic floor without having to think about doing a kegel! 1. Squats with toes turned out and one foot forward – this is another squat rendition, just with a change in foot placement and again adding hip rotation! It’s a fun one! 2. Plank with hip adduction – Tap foot inward and across to the opposite side. This can be modified on a bench and would still be a great exercise! 3. Squat with toes pointed in – do a normal squat but point the feet inward. Do your best not to allow the knees to cave in! 4. Bridge with toes turned in – make it harder by doing a single-leg bridge with toes turned in! 5. Forward curtsy lunges – make sure that you don’t just turn the whole body and end up doing a forward lunge in a different direction! The rotation should come from the HIP! Give them a try and let me know what you think, or SAVE for later to modify your normal workout and throw in some pelvic floor work! And then go grab a MONTH of free exercises at the link in our bio.
