Pre & Post-Natal Glutes

Why do I need to think about glutes during pregnancy?

During pregnancy your body goes through many changes including muscular imbalances in the pelvis.  These imbalances can result in a mixture of aches and lower back pains and can contribute to an anterior pelvic tilt.  This is where glutes (muscles in your bum) lengthen and weaken and the top part of the pelvis tilts forward resulting in extra pressure being placed on your vertebrae from an increased curvature of the lower back.

Our Pre & Post-Natal Glutes Training Plan will show you how to safely increase the strength of your glutes.  This can result in increased pelvic stability and may help with contractions during labour.

  • Regularly practising squats during pregnancy help you maintain a squat position during labour which can help with contractions.
  • They can help maintain your cardiovascular fitness by elevating your heart rate.

Anterior pelvic tilt?

Do you have an anterior pelvic tilt?

One way to check whether you have an anterior pelvic tilt is to stand with your back against the wall.  Your heels should be a few inches away from the wall and your tailbone, shoulders and head should be in constant contact with the wall.  Whilst maintaining this position place one hand between your back and wall in the natural curve.  If you can fit your anything more than your second knuckles past your spine it is likely that you have an anterior pelvic tilt.
