The Low Pressure Fitness – Hypopressive system has been gaining more and more followers, especially mothers looking for a post-partum body recovery. The technique can recover the body you had before pregnancy and more importantly even develop a more beautiful body than before your pregnancy.
The Hypopressives – LPF help to reduce diastasis, improve pelvic floor dysfunctions that generate urinary, fecal incontinence and prolapse by improving the muscle tone of the entire CORE region. In addition to this, the technique prevents abdominal hernias by reorganizing vital organs – consequently, there is an improvement in the digestive system as well. Disc hernias are also prevented by the work of postural re-education increasing flexibility and there is also an increase in respiratory capacity, improving blood circulation – all the technique will improves sports performance too.
Why not perform conventional sit-ups after delivery?
The big difference from conventional sit-ups to hypopressives is that conventional sit-ups exert an increase in intra-abdominal-perineal pressure. This is important because internal pressure between the abdominal and pelvic cavity can increase or develop diastasis. We also want to avoid activities that would develop or increase the symptoms of incontinence or prolapse which would increase further protusion for that belly that was already protruded for 40 weeks, causing it not return to normal. Hypopressives will work to improve the tone of the deepest muscles in the abdomen which helps pull in the other abdominal muscles.
Why do Hypopressives – LPF after childbirth?
After the baby was born, a lot of space is left – This space needs to be reduced and reorganized.
Your abdominal and perineal muscles are toneless – due to the over stretching of the muscles of the abdomen and the weight of the organs plus the baby on the pelvic floor which was too much.
Ligaments need to return to the place in good working order – using hypopressives we will work with neuromyofascial stretching, this is done from the fasciae to the structures such as nerves, tendons and muscles.
The spine has undergone a lot of changes and pressures – you will need to work with postural reeducation and LPF promotes better tonus and strengthens the arms and legs (especially in more advanced exercises).
LPF improves sexual performance.
To end with a flourish, you can lose between 3 to 12 centimeters from the waist.
Some women report being more satisfied with their bodies now after pregnancy followed by LPF.
