PELVIC FLOOR 101 FOR ATHLETES
pelvic floor training/education for lifting, postpartum core and functional training
SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY, SEPT 29 3PM-4PM.
The Pelvic Floor muscles are an underestimated yet important function for men and women in daily, functional movements and training.
The pelvic floor is a layer of muscle that supports the pelvic organs (Bladder, bowel and uterus) and spans the bottom of the pelvis stretching from the tailbone to the pubic bone. Though highly associated with females and postpartum core, the pelvic floor is just as an important muscle for males especially in lifting and functional training.
On Sept 29th, Pelvic Floor specialist Julie Bagshaw from Vital Physiotherapy and Wellness will be leading a lecture and discussion on increasing strength by learning about your pelvic floor and about possible dysfunctions you may not even be aware of! In this seminar you will learn:
- Signs of pelvic floor dysfunction & what to do
- Postpartum core re-training
- Should you be doing kegels (Hint: they are not right for everyone!)
- How to leverage and protect the pelvic floor during heavy lifts & double unders
- How to properly stretch/strengthen your pelvic floor
The seminar will be $5+Tax for members of the Academy of Lions (Must have an active membership) and $10+tax for non-members. Proceeds for this seminar will be going towards the New Mom Project, a charity organization with a mission to support marginalized families with basic baby necessities for a great and loving start.
