Do you have the knack for the four femfit® exercises yet? Here's the lowdown, plus the role each exercise plays as part of your journey to pelvic floor health.
Increase muscle strength
The classic contraction, Squeeze is designed to help strengthen and build up your pelvic floor muscles.
How-to: Squeeze, lift, and hold your maximum contraction, and hold for a specified duration. Release, relax and repeat.
Squeezing your pelvic floor
Coordination and speed
Rapid exercises, or "quick flicks" are designed to help with overall coordination, and ultimately increase the speed of your muscle contractions.
How-to: Squeeze and lift your pelvic floor muscles rapidly. Release and relax. Repeat.
Endurance and function
Often the trickiest exercise to master, Enduro helps with overall pelvic floor function.
How-to: Squeeze and lift to half your maximum, and hold for several seconds. Then, without relaxing, squeeze and lift to maximum, and hold again. Relax back to half your maximum squeeze, hold, then relax.
Coordination and control
This is the "Squeeze Before You Sneeze" exercise—The Knack is all about regaining control when you're most vulnerable or prone to leaks, in addition to helping with your overall coordination.
How-to: Do a maximum squeeze, lift immediately, then cough! Relax and rest, then repeat.
