When was the last time you exercised in tall or half kneel as shown in this picture? Moving and stabilizing in this position does wonders for core muscle re-education. Add weights or resistance bands from different positions to challenge your core stability on all planes. Challenging your balance, in ways that are successful, will help you age gracefully with a core that compliments your pelvic floor.

Your pelvic floor muscles are one of four muscles that make up your deep intrinsic core. Your diaphragm, transverse abdominus (low belly) and multifidus (low back) need to work together as a team, equal give and take. If one or more stop functional correctly than “Houston we have a problem.”

Re-educating your deep core muscles to work as a team, with awareness, as well as a balanced approach of stretching and strengthening, will improve pelvic floor function (not to mention posture and balance).
