You are probably wondering what exercises are safe if you are one of the unlucky women that suffer from urinary incontinence? Having a bathroom in sight at all times is something you are probably very accustomed to. So, it's only logical that you wouldn't want to go for a long walk, jog or even a hike!

There are quite a few ways to get exercise and still maintain a close distance to a bathroom! It's important to focus on exercises that don't involve constant up and down motions or force.

Here are 4 exercises that are recommended if you suffer from incontinence:

Swimming

Swimming is proven to be one of the most effective ways to tone muscles and burn fat for almost all muscles of the body! Swimming also low impact and allows you to take the pressure off of your bladder providing relief to your overburdened bladder.

 

Pilates

While pilates has not been shown to be an effective medical treatment for incontinence it  is amazing for your pelvic floor muscles! Some evidence does suggest that regular pilates workouts will help condition muscles in healthy adults when compared to not exercising at all.

 

Yoga

Yoga involves controlled movements which is perfect for you if you suffer from incontinence. Yoga allows you to use your core, which includes your stomach muscles, back, diaphragm, glutes and pelvic floor muscles of course.
