Your Pelvic Floor, Core & Running
Running can wreak havoc on your pelvic floor, especially if you have not been turning on your pelvic floor and transverse abdominis. If you are doing MIF you are already turning on these muscles!
The pelvic floor's primary job is to keep that baby in during pregnancy, and then afterwards to keep your insides… well… in. Think of it as a hammock that holds your bladder and reproductive organs in and attaches to the front and back of your pelvis. 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 Poświata in 2014, found that 45.54% of the 112 elite female endurance athletes (runners and cross-country skiers) polled, suffered from incontinence after becoming moms. It is so common ladies! You are not alone!

36" Foam Roller - we do some serious core work and stretching - you will love it!) The foam roller I use in the video is from Amazon.
