It’s something called the “Kneepads Slide,” an exercise used to strengthen the pelvic floor in people with PCOS. It is essentially one leg to one foot exercise that’s done slowly, and with very slow motion—to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor.
The thing about the “Kneepads Slide” is you can do it on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You can do it through a mirror on your wall, you could also do it in the mirror. It does take some practice, practice it in front of a mirror and practice it on your phone.
The good news is that you can really do it while you’re wearing your yoga pants. This is the reason we decided to work with the team at BodyFit. They’re the professionals in the field. So they have the most extensive track record in doing this exercise.
What are some common reasons for PCOS?
A lot of them are hormonal in nature. They also tend to be linked to obesity and eating disorders or dieting.
What would you recommend doing for a PCOS woman who thinks she’s in pain?
I would definitely avoid the pain roller as it triggers the symptoms of PCOS. You can work on other things to relieve the symptom. Try to take your PCOS women on a regular exercise routine, like regular stair climbing or jumping rope. It’s just a way to get the blood flowing to the muscles in the pelvic region. And you can massage her muscles. Also, I would strongly recommend doing an assessment in the doctor’s office. If the symptoms are getting worse, your doctor should be able to find out what’s causing the pain, because you must have a diagnosis before you can get medication.
What else would you recommend?
I would also see a dietitian. I would suggest you keep your bodyweight down and eat the diet of a well-fed animal like an orange, which has no added sugar and has fat in it that’s good for the blood. Also, try to get a good breakfast.
What is the ultimate goal with PCOS? How are you going to keep it going?
The best thing is to keep working on strengthening as much as you can. If you’re using steroids on steroids, then you’re probably on them for a very, very long time. That will take time and work, as well as a good sleep schedule that can help you take care of symptoms.
