Strengthening your lower body is vital for prolapse recovery. But it can be hard finding lower body exercises that don’t exacerbate your prolapse symptoms. These 5 exercises today are a great place to start!
Perform each exercise for 45-60 seconds, on each side as necessary, for 4-6 rounds or 20 minutes, whichever comes first. Make sure you take about a minute break in between each round.
1. Squat Pulses
2. Decline Straight-leg Raise
3. Laying Heel Push
4. Clam Shells
5. Slow-descent Split Lunge
If any particular move makes you feel that heaviness in the vagina or like you’re pushing your breath forcefully into your pelvic floor, back off a bit. Reevaluate your breathing strategy and try again. If you’re still feeling that way, you may not be ready for that particular exercise just yet.
