Your pelvic floor.
Tension and endurance are deeply connected to the outer and inner pelvic floor and directly affect your well-being and self-confidence.
What is the pelvic floor?
The most elementary muscle structure in our body.
The muscle structure is located between the pubic and coccyx bones. When this muscular network is healthy, it supports our pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, bowels) like a little hammock by holding them in their natural position.
A properly activated pelvic floor has a functional connection with the deep abdominal muscles, thus good abdominal muscles in return have a positive influence on it.
The muscles can be tensed both consciously and unconsciously and play an important role in both sports and sex.
The outer pelvic floor
The external part can tense up quickly and strongly, but has therefore no endurance. That’s why it is responsible for spontaneous behavior, such as when we wet ourselves or when we jump unplanned.
You can feel it very easily by trying to squeeze the urine.
The internal pelvic floor
The internal, deep muscles are mainly responsible for supporting the position of the organs. This muscle group has a higher basic tension and greater endurance.
When the structure is healthy, we can sneeze, laugh, run, jump and excrete without worry, and even after birth!
