Pelvic Floor Friendly 5 min Plyometric WorkoutMar 03, 2022
If you’ve heard the term plyometric before, it’s likely been associated with jumping movements like box jumps. But plyometrics actually applies to any exercise or activity that is short, fast, and explosive, allowing you to generate maximum force in the muscle in the shortest period of time.
Explosive movements are so good for our heart and muscles but they can feel 'off limits' when dealing with pelvic floor challenges.
We CAN still do hard things and plyometrics IS possible.
Pelvic floor muscle exercises have long been considered the first-line therapy for stress urinary incontinence in women. Pelvic floor muscle deconditioning (weakness, poor endurance, poor coordination) has been associated with stress urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, anal incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.
I use fitness and movement to help women and vagina owners prevent and overcome pelvic floor challenges like incontinence and organ prolapse. It is also helpful for pregnancy, motherhood, and menopause!
A plyometric program is effective in restoring and maintaining pelvic floor fitness.
This short but intense workout will leave you breathless and sweaty and feeling empowered! It will also benefit the pelvic floor. We need to load our muscles in order for them to get stronger and to improve.
Thank you so much for watching!

The pelvic floor is part of the core and when we know how to access it, we can transform our core workouts! I love the versatility of the Bosu ball and really feel like I have worked at the end of my workout.
