Strengthen Those Inner Thighs

πŸ“Œ keep the muscles strong that help stabilize your pelvis

πŸ“Œ work your body in various planes to help decrease your risk of muscle imbalances and injury

πŸ“Œ working the adductors (inner thighs) can help relieve pelvic pain, low back pain and common pre/postnatal discomforts

πŸ“Œ having strong adductors can help strengthen your pelvic floor, your core & help realign your pelvic bones

β€ΌοΈβž‘οΈβž‘οΈ the adductors (inner thighs) cross over your pubic bone and attach into the core. This connection is KEY to our core and pelvic floor strength! πŸ’―πŸ’―

These exercises are great for strengthening those muscles we use for childbirth, plus creating that strength that we will need for postpartum recovery and to feel our best throughout motherhood πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

As we talk about those adductors and pelvic floor muscles we need to remember ➑️ The more you practice actively engaging these muscles the more they will learn to engage on their own πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Some key points ‡️

πŸ“ activate the inner thighs, transverse abdominals and pelvic floor.

πŸ“ Never β€œtuck” your pelvis and don’t clench your butt muscles.

πŸ“ you want to contract AND fully relax the muscles you are working throughout each repetition

πŸ“ maintain neural alignment throughout your movements

πŸ“ move intentionally instead of mindlessly going through the movements

πŸ“ start with low reps and smaller range of motion until you feel more comfortable. Once you learn how to properly engage those muscles you are working then you can increase your reps and range of motion

When you have weak inner thighs that correlates to a weak core πŸ€” ‡️

So by increasing the strength of the adductors (inner thighs) you will see more strength in your core and pelvic floor 🀩
