The Pelvic Floor Piston: Foundation for Fitness
The pelvic floor has long been the only muscle targeted in the battle against incontinence, and yet ignored in our pursuit of a strong ‘core’. New research has helped us understand that the pelvic floor is actually a critical part of the ‘core’ team and collectively that team works together to keep your center anchored and dry. Integrated teamwork, linked to the up and down pistoning action of our breath, provides a sturdy foundation that supports our joints and movement, accelerates fitness, and keeps us dry.
