Our own Brittany Klingmann was a guest on The Pelvic Floor Project podcast to discuss:

  • Various messages that people hear regarding weight lifting and the pelvic floor:
    • “Weightlifting causes too much pressure on the pelvic floor”
    • “Weightlifting causes prolapse”
    • “Valsalva should be avoided and you should always exhale when you lift”
    • “Weight lifting is too hard on the pelvic floor and that is why you leak”
  • Brittany’s personal journey with CrossFit and weightlifting
  • The use of weightlifting belts
  • Tips for people who want to progress to lifting
  • A recent study published by Christina Prevett et al ‘Impact of Heavy Resistance Training on Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Outcomes’
