Are you sabotaging your own success with your chosen exercise routine?
To answer this question we need to start at the beginning – do you actually have the foundations in place to enable you to do the exercise that you are doing. In the very same way that a building will start to crack and fall down if the foundations are not good enough, the body will break down and develop injuries if you do not have a good foundation in place.
What do I mean by a “good foundation”?
What are some signs that your core may not be doing its job properly?
There are no quick fixes to a fit body – even a body that looks ok from the outside may have issues on the inside. If you are heading into an exercise programme and you have been out of the exercise arena for a while, get checked out and make sure that you have a good foundation. This is particularly important if you have had a baby (or more than one) or undergone pelvic/abdominal surgery – both of these things have a huge impact on your ability to connect and integrate core function into your daily lives, as well as your exercise routine
Do you need to have a pelvic floor and core assessment?
Is more exercise better?
I often see people who having made the decision to get fit, go all out to kill it. What are the pitfalls of this kind of exercising and what do you need to be thinking about to make sure that what you are doing is right for your body and sustainable.
What is the answer?
