Squatting is such an important exercise to master when you are pregnant.

It is 100% safe throughout your three trimesters and can be practiced using a variety of different equipment and positions.


THE BENEFITS OF SQUATTING

1. Increase Pelvic Floor and TVA strength

  • The correct firing pattern of the muscles when squatting should always involve PFM and TVA to stabilize the pelvis. 
  • Holding a squat is a good place to practice PF engagement when the muscles are stretched.
  • It’s also a good place to do your third trimester reverse breathing.

2. Prevent Back & Pelvic Pain
