Breathing

I’ve been enjoying getting back into exercise and am currently about 1 month into stage 1 of the post pregnancy program. I was wondering if you could provide some instructions on when to breath in and out for each exercise and also the positioning of the pelvis and pelvic floor. I’m “zipping up” my core, but don’t know if there are further things I should be doing. I’m especially confused about what to do with my core when performing the side planks and clams. Thank you for your help.

Hi Lyndsey,

Apologies I missed these questions. In regards to your pelvic floor and core you should be exhaling on exertion. With side planks and clams you should be able to breathe consistently throughout, and there is a gentle engagement through the pelvic floor, TVA and back. There are tutorials in the postpartum section in regards to your pelvic floor.
