Women start their journey with us afraid to squat, to play with their children or knowing that even a long walk can have an impact on their symptoms.
There is a lot about what you can’t do out there and little about what you can, but this blog is to show you the positives that training smart can open a world of safe training possibilities.
Obviously, we don’t want you going crazy straight off, but we also want you to know that this is not the end and you don’t have to hang up your running trainers or weights gloves forever!
What you do need to do is train smart and build some rock-solid foundations first before layering up the intensity.
Are you getting my drift?
The best thing we always start with is learning Hypopressives with us as this is a game changer when living with a prolapse, we have taught thousands of women now and the results are incredible.
Now first things first it is important to know where you are now so we always recommend to our clients to track your symptoms and also your cycle and be aware of what has an impact on your symptoms. You may notice you feel more symptomatic at certain times throughout a 1-month period. This is quite normal it is where our hormones are constantly fluctuating. Knowing these points will make it easier to manage your symptoms.
Depending on your stage of prolapse you can do regular walking but listen to your body as to how long is ok for you, if you feel particularly symptomatic after a walk perhaps reduce the time.
Light weights under supervision by someone who understands what is going on with you. You can join our online weights classes for this if you don’t know anyone locally. Again, we would always recommend stating with Hypopressives and Pilates first.
Pilates for Prolapse, now most Pilates moves are great, but there are some that can aggravate your prolapse too which is why we put together our online Pilates for prolapse course (I will put the link below so you can take a look) We also run online weekly classes so we can keep an eye on you too.
We have created a core rehab method introducing Hypopressives, pelvic stability, Pilates and core strength to re-build our clients slowly, we are able to get our clients back running, lifting weights and feeling more confident in their bodies and managing their prolapse symptoms which always makes up and them happy.
We love what we do, helping women achieve their goals, we just wanted to let you know there is hope and you can start on your own but let us help you get there quicker if this is really important to you.
All our online classes are Prolapse friendly so you could always come and give one of them a try first.
