Months after having a baby I noticed some pelvic floor weakness.
So, that got my professional gears turning and I turned all my focus to the pelvic floor. I found that doing kegels did not make any real difference in my pelvic floor strength, so I had to dig deeper.
The more I focused on how the rest of the body either encouraged the pelvic floor to work or discouraged I got stronger, fast. Then, I applied Butt training and prolapse at work! The feedback I got from my clients was amazing.
It even amazed me. This story really makes me want to spread this information! A client mentioned to me at the end of the session that she felt like she had to pee frequently and could barely make it to the bathroom.
If you have severe prolapse or pelvic pain, please see a pelvic floor PT. Your pelvic floor is the base of function for your body.
Think about it as a sling of muscles that your torso sits in. A weak pelvic floor can cause SI Butt training and prolapse pain, low back and hip pain. How do you prepare for an unexpected sneeze, a spontaneous laugh, or that sudden lunge for a tennis ball?
Somewhere along the way I read that great posture burns around calories a day the same as a 3 mile run. This angle makes it easier for the pelvic floor to fire naturally and thus get stronger. Clenching your glutes butt muscles while standing.
A strong Glute Max is important for everythingbut in order to be strong it cannot be clenched all day. Clenching the glutes can make them weaker and harder for your pelvic floor to respond when you really need it! You know when you are in an elevator and oh no, you had beans last night for dinner and you squeeze your bottom to hold in gas?
For a short elevator ride holding those glutes clenched is ok but holding them clenched all day creates a real problem, especially for sneeze pee. When you clench, it tucks your butt under. Clenching your glutes will often make you clench your pelvic floor as well, which makes it inefective at dealing with stresses, such Butt training and prolapse sneezing, it forces the pelvic floor muscles into a shortened, tightened position.
My last ditch argument against clenching is it makes your butt look super flat and no woman wants flat butt syndrome. Too much junk in the trunk. I call these fake glutes, like those jeans with built in padding. This is bad because the pelvic floor works in sync with the abdominals to Butt training and prolapse correctly. Check out the post Hanging into an Anterior Tilt for more information. Both of these mistakes make it difficult for the pelvic floor to fire correctly. They also make traditional pelvic floor strengthening exercises less effective.
So, they can be effective all night long. Nothing wrong with that.

To strengthen your pelvic floor be sure your head is back in line with your body. Those with forward head posture are more likely to have pelvic floor issues. Take a look at the picture.

Repeat until you feel pressure in your pelvic floor created by your diaphragm functioning properly.
The more Butt training and prolapse expand your ribcage on each deep breath, the more likely you are to have a fully functioning diaphragm. All you need to remember is that when the diaphragm expands, it pushes pressure down into the pelvic floor. This is a good thing! When you slip into a shallow breathing pattern, hello forward head, you lose your diaphragm and therefore your natural strengthening of the pelvic floor. Try this simple exercise.

Think of the abdominal wall again as a canister of pressure. This pressure helps the diaphragm work. The pelvic floor is the bottom of the pressure canister. When you inhale, your diaphragm should drop or descend, and your ribs should expand like an umbrella to allow room for air to fill your lungs.
This should also cause your pelvic floor to relax or expand down, making room for the downward pressure Butt training and prolapse the diaphragm. Then, as you exhale, the diaphragm ascends back up.
Think of it as a recoil from all the pressure going down and your pelvic floor should follow by contracting. Just for fun, try this advanced pelvic floor exercise! Check for Diastasis Here.

What does a kegel look like? A common explanation is a tightening of the pelvic floor like you are stopping the flow of urine.
The most important part of doing a kegel is the Butt training and prolapse after the contracting. Fully letting go your pelvic floor is critical for getting a great contraction. If you hold a low level of contraction all the time, you get weaker and can never fully contract your pelvic floor. This is what causes leaks. Focus on both the contraction phase and the releasing phase, but your best bet is to incorporate them into other exercises focusing on diaphragm timing.
