Do you feel like you’re going to pee your pants when you sneeze?
No one wants to really talk about it, but you know what I’m talking about…
You may think I have three heads when I suggest that jumping rope is your solution but it is. Your pelvic floor muscles are like any other muscle, by working them, they will get stronger and you will lose the ‘pee your pants’ feeling when you do impact exercises like jumping rope.
The key to success is to start off moderately. Do a ‘phantom’ or pretend skip for starters. Don’t let your feet lose contact with the floor. Gradually, work into an easy skip, all the while doing kegels when you’re jumping rope.
Here’s a beginner routine for you: 30 seconds of ‘phantom’ skip 30 seconds of prisoner squats 30 seconds of ‘phantom’ skip 30 seconds of push ups (modify to the knee if needed) 30 seconds of ‘phantom’ skip 30 seconds of front plank (drop to the knees if needed)
Repeat 3-5 times
