Confession: I pee during workouts. Drop a ❤️ if you do too!

Do you pee when working out? Like lifting leg in yoga or jumping? Or both? 

Mmm hmm maybe not something you want to announce to the world, but isn’t this what AthletaWell is for?

 

Since having a baby, I can’t do a jumping jack unless I’m wearing a pad.

Though incontinence is common, it’s not a life-sentence ! There’s some stuff we can do in yoga and movement to help strengthen our pelvic floor and lower core (nope, not kegels).

 

Would you like a short vid on how???? Drop your stories here!

‌‌ ❤️@Sarah_E I would lovvveee a video on strengthening our pelvic floor. Sneezes are my weakness, I have to be careful! 😂 Since its confession time: I will say working out lets out more gas than just a little pee. Maybe its because I'm relaxed or my stomach is being squeezed, but I get sooo gassy working out (maybe why I don't have a workout buddy LOL). Maybe I need a butt strengthening video to stop these toots LOL

Okay first off, we all fart. Even Queen Elizabeth 😉 That's not uncommon when working out and sometimes overly clenching part of our pelvic floor can lead to laxity in another. It's also healthy and natural! But back to peeing and sneezing, that should not be happening! I think the next bit of content I cook up will have some good breathing exercises to help!

LOL!  I was terrified when I peed with every bounce at a trampoline park with my 2 year old (I was 28).  I was under the impression stress incontinence would happen with multiple babies and maybe older age, NO WAY COULD IT HAPPEN WITH JUST 1 KIDDO!?!?!  

 

Video please!!

It's really wild how one baby changes your body for life! Okay, sounds like we got some votes for the vid!

I would love more info on this. I had to quit a beep test at our gym because my pelvic floor muscles just got tired and basically gave up. Cue: Pee. 

YES!!! Okay I'm brewing a vid for this and will tag you!

Happens to the best of us. That’s why I take potty breaks all the time between classes even if I don’t have to go!

LOL truth!!!!!! Always at the same points in class.
