Core strength is important because far from being about having ripped abs, your ‘core’ actually surrounds everywhere between your hips and chest, both front and back. So a weak core means your back isn’t supported, posture will suffer, and this can have knock on effects to other areas such as hips and knees. And we thought childbirth itself was painful enough!
You’ll know if you have pelvic floor issues after pregnancy. You’ll need to pee more often, may leak when you cough, sneeze, or jump, and could be more prone to irregular bowel patterns, not reaching the loo in time, and uncomfortable or even painful intercourse.
Do the entire 8-week program from your home, whenever you can fit it in during your busy day, from wherever you are in the world.
Whether you are a beginner exerciser or have been working out for years, ensuring your core and pelvic floor muscles are functioning as best they can is important for every mom’s life. The exercises that you’ll do in the Core Floor Restore program will help you do just that.
