As active women we know all about our muscles. We know the sets and reps to work our shoulders, glutes, and core. We’re proficient in using dumbbells, kettlebells, and squat racks. But when it comes to training our pelvic floor, we know one word: Kegels. That’s not enough. In fact, if our pelvic floor is a “Lock Down Donna” as this week’s guest would say, Kegels may be the last thing we need. Our pelvic floor muscles play a role in essential functions like continence and sex that impact the quality of our life and our athletic performance. We can train them, massage them, and even strength train them like any other muscles. This week’s guest, Amy Hill Fife, MPT, WCS, BCB-PMD, tells us how.
