Welcome to the second week where our focus is to consolidate technique for pelvic floor (PF) and lower abdominal (TrA) activation and to introduce the theraband. The theraband is such an underrated and wonderful piece of equipment which can be used in a variety of ways. Particularly during pregnancy the theraband provides resistance in new postures and helps to strengthen muscles when we can’t do exercises like bridging,
Here are two wonderful theraband exercises that help strengthen the pelvic floor, lower abdominals and upper body muscles.
Perform each exercise for 45 seconds on each side with 15 seconds rest.
‘x’ indicates the number of sets x 1, x 2, x 3
