Pelvic Floor Muscles

Did you know that a woman's body is not designed to walk upright? According to Jeanette Haslam, a physiotherapist specializing in women's health, "If women walked on four legs, they'd have fewer pelvic floor problems."

In women's bodies, the pelvic floor muscles have a lot of work to do. There's the weight of the bladder and the strain of pregnancy and childbirth. It is the only area of the body that undergoes such stresses.

Ms. Haslam says that the way to tighten the muscles around the back passage, vagina and front passage is to pull up inside as if you're trying to stop passing urine. It should feel like a lift and squeeze up inside. Do ten quick pull-ups and ten slow, holding in for four seconds, three times daily. Do as many as you can and build up gradually.

I use to do those exercises all of the time, of course I was allot younger. When you get older everything seems to drop, move and sag, so your not sure what is moving where, lol! I do try to walk though as much as possible! Have a nice Sunday!
