How to keep up your pelvic floor fitness

It’s time to perfect your pelvic floor, with the help of this new product

Although many of us may be putting off any form of fitness until after Christmas, there’s really no time like the present to improve your pelvic floor, with the help of new app from lights by Light bladder weakness experts, lights by TENA’s ‘my pff’. Instead of waiting until January, why not get ahead of the game and kick start the festive season with a workout specially designed for your pelvic floor.

It will come as no surprise that during pregnancy and after our body can go through some changes, but according to recent research carried out by lights by TENA, one in three women in the UK experience light bladder weakness, with unexpected leaks a common occurrence for up to 69% of pregnant women and new mums.

From improving your sex life to reducing those unexpected leaks, the benefits of a strong pelvic floor are numerous. But, while 90% of ladies know the importance of completing pelvic exercises, a surprising 61% still aren’t training these muscles when we know we should be.

Most women experience light bladder weakness due to a weakened pelvic floor, which is the muscle that runs from your pubic bone at the front of your body to the base of your spine. Often, the pelvic floor can be weakened during pregnancy and after childbirth which can result in little leaks. Not something you would like to entertain when enjoying the festivities.

The new app named ‘my pff’ (my pelvic floor fitness) boasts subtle exercise reminders and bespoke programme settings to guide you through your pelvic floor exercises this season.
With three difficulty levels to choose from, you can create your own exercise plan and gradually increase the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. Plus, up to six reminders can be set at one time, meaning you can hit snooze and complete the exercises at a time that suits you.

And the best part? It’s completely free to download!
