We often hear the word "core muscle group" in life. No matter how strong a person looks, if the core muscle group is weak, it is an empty shelf after all. So which women in life need to pay special attention to exercising their core muscles?
1. Sedentary women
Sitting for a long time will lead to fatigue and tension of the core muscles, resulting in muscle imbalance, which will increase the instability of the lumbar spine. Women who are often sedentary should strengthen core muscle training, especially the muscle strength training of the back extensor group, to correct the imbalance of their flexor and extensor muscle strength to effectively recover and prevent low back pain.
2. Women who exercise regularly
For women who exercise regularly, the main function of core strength training is to stabilize the athlete's spine and pelvis, maintain correct body posture, improve body control and balance, and improve the energy from the core to the limbs and other muscle groups during exercise. Output, prevention of injury in action, and recovery after injury, thereby contributing to the improvement of athletic performance.
3. Pregnant women
Due to the gradually enlarged uterus during pregnancy, it will force the pregnant mother to change the posture in order to maintain the balance of the body, causing continuous tension in the back extensor muscles and excessive fatigue in the waist. Therefore, exercising the transverse abdominis during pregnancy will help maintain the stability of the vertebrae during pregnancy and reduce the waist and back. pain.
At the same time, do not neglect to exercise the pelvic floor muscles in the core muscle group. Proper exercise of the pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy can improve the toughness of the pelvic floor muscles, increase the elasticity of the birth canal, push the fetus more vigorously during childbirth, and reduce the rate of vaginal midwifery. , to promote natural childbirth. In addition, by improving the blood circulation ability of the pelvic floor muscles, enhancing the elasticity and tension of the pelvic floor muscles, it can resist the increased abdominal pressure, prevent the position of the urethra from changing, effectively close the urethra, and avoid postpartum urinary incontinence.
4. Women who want to improve the quality of their sexual life
The reason why women can achieve orgasm during sexual life is entirely due to the regular contraction of pelvic floor muscles such as levator ani, vaginal muscles, and pubococcygeus muscles, especially the bulbocavernosus, which is located on both sides of the vagina and is very important for maintaining pelvic floor muscles. Vaginal tightness plays an important role.
When the pelvic floor muscles are overactive and the muscle tone is high, vaginismus, pelvic pain, and dyspareunia occur. Therefore, scientifically exercising the pelvic floor muscles can greatly improve the sexual satisfaction and quality of sexual life of both spouses. Like other muscles in the body, the core muscles will gradually age with age. Learn to treat them kindly and keep them strong and strong through exercise, so that the core muscles can work in a uniform and orderly division of labor to better protect our health. .
