Tip: Running and your Pelvic Floor
Diastasis Recti: TIPS • 2m 49s
Your core/trunk is a transfer station for everything that goes on in the body. Running dramatically increases the amount of force through the core, pelvic floor and legs. Starting running too soon can wreak havoc on your pelvic floor (PF). Its primary job is to keep that baby in and then

These muscles work all day long. 24/7. They work in conjunction with the TA to stabilize the core. Any insufficiencies in these muscles can cause pain, incontinence and
altered movement. A study by Poswiata in 2014, found that 45.54% of the 112 elite female endurance athletes (runners and cross-country skiers) polled, suffered from incontinence. It is so common ladies!
