An Indirect Path To A Smaller Bum!

21 May

By Jenny Burrell BSc (Hons), Founder of Burrell Education, Specialist For Pregnancy and Post Natal Fitness & Therapy Education, London, UK. 

www.burrelleducation.com

I’ve just spent 2 days teaching my Pregnancy and Post Natal Massage course at NLSSM and it proved to be a timely intervention.   It is without a doubt, extremely high on the list of my favourite things to do IN THE WHOLE WORLD!  No kidding.  You see, there was not a single person in that room (12 amazing women – below) who didn’t instinctively know that, to truly walk the path of  ‘showing up’ for your own life you’ve got to do AN INSIDE OUT JOB not visa versa! And that’s OK.

You see, I work mostly with fitness people and in my younger days, I too did my part to fortify the myth that looking good on the outside was a key to happiness.  Oh the folly of youth! I now consider this to be high class BS if your internal landscape looks like a bombsite, literally or spiritually.  Without a doubt, spending time in this awesome environment, got me ‘plugged back in’  to some key fundamentals of our human journey and the guiding principle that cultivating an awesome heart/head-space and a compassionate outlook for others and yourself is KING because it is actually a high self-regard that means you treat yourself well, slay your addiction and personality monsters (food, booze, co-dependence etc) and generally do no harm to others.  A high self- regard means that you instinctively steer clear of people, places and things that don’t keep you ‘in the light’.  A high self-regard means you can smell a rat at a hundred paces and head for the hills 🙂

If you’re not familiar with how much of this type of educatin is delivered, here’s a snapshot…..

  • During practically all of your education (in some cases, over the course of years) and on CPD’s you spend a lot of time undressed and physically exposed!
  • You make friends with a complete stranger, undress infront of them and the rest of the room without fear of judgement and allow them to get skin-to-skin with you.
  • You allow a perfect stranger to touch you intimatelyand to perform an  exchange of energy with you.
  • You allow someone you’ve never met before to to help you, to heal you, to perform an act caring and compassion for you and most of all, you instantly TRUST this complete stranger to do you no harm.

It’s only in this style of hands-on education that I ever truly see egalitarian interaction.  Everyone brings their take on the situation to the table and we all openly learn from and observe each other working, we’re happy to receive praise for great work and equally open to have someone guide us to a better solution.  In this environment,  interaction occurs without the GAME-FACE because we know that our bodies can’t lie to anyone, and what the ‘client and the therapist’ both feel as the treatment progresses is THE SIMPLE TRUTH.  So people get real, say real stuff, share rarely-voiced thoughts, ask questions easily and are happy when the answer is a shrug of the shoulders or some other ineffable or simply accept that ‘feeling a shift in energy or awareness’ IS the answer.  Love it!  But the hugest bonus is when the treatment is finished, your partner is up and dressed and you look each other in the eyes with gratitude and sincerity and you know that you JUST GOT RECONNECTED TO ANOTHER HUMAN SOUL AND TO THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF !  And isn’t that actually what we came here for?

FitPro’s: Questions to Consider When You Find Post Natal Rectus Diastasis

17 May
By Jenny Burrell BSc (Hons), Founder of Burrell Education, Specialist For Pregnancy and Post Natal Fitness & Therapy, London, UK. www.burrelleducation.com

As a health and fitness professional serving Post Natal clients, there are (in my opinion) 5 major confounding issues that the client presents with when employing the service of a specialist fitpro….in no particular order:
1.  A wobbly stomach with stretched skin and poor muscular tension/tone and a general feeling of disconnect to the abdominals.
2.  How to get rid of a C-Section tummy that overhangs her scar.
3.  A malfunctioning pelvic floor leading to at best urinary leakage, at worst faecal incontinence.
4.  A palpable gap at the midline of the abdominals, technical term: Rectus Diastasis or Distension and when/if it will close.
5.  How to get rid of ‘baby fat’!
This post relates to a few other factors to bear in mind when a client presents with a Distension (Diastasis) beyond simply measuring the gap and deciding what type of programming is suitable for her present state.
1.  How old is the clients’ ‘baby’?  – The older the Distension, the less likely that it will close completely ie., a 6 month PN client is in a much likelier position than a 2 year PN client.
2.  How old is the client?  – A younger mother (under 30) is generally in a better position regarding Collagen and Elastin production compared to an older mom (sorry!).
3.  What is the condition of the midline?  Papery/slack and offering very little resistance or can gap be felt but midline has good tension that can withstand pressure?  – Having a distension (gap between the bellies of the Rectus Abdominis) doesn’t necessarily mean that you are doomed to a life of poor core strength, incontinence and back pain.  For example, many fitness professionals who returned to work early to teach classes and exercised inappropriately often have fantastic looking midsections and fully-functioning core’s with a a Distension.  Their Rectus bellies can be separated but their midline is strong on palpation and more than able to do its job of withstanding intra-abdominal pressure when required to.
3.  If the client had a previous birth, what were the conditions of the abdominals before and after the previous baby?Previously separated abdominals are less like to return to a fully closed position after a second and third pregnancy and birth.
4.  Was there a short space of time between two pregnancies? – Connective tissue needs time to heal, short time-frames between pregnancies is less ideal and mothers with short gaps between pregnancies are more likely to experience poorer tissue resoration post birth compared to those who have had a longer ‘healing period’ between births.
5.  What kind of abdominal work/sport has the client been performing post birth and prior to coming to see you the Trainer.  What’s her occupation and daily activity levels? – I once assessed a fitness professional with a Distension to find that she taught 2 Spin Classes, 4 Body Pumps and led a running club.  She had a two year old distension that probably would remain as her work activities and full schedule did not allow for modification to the quantity of stress placed on her abdominal muscles – incidentally, she had a firm midline and didn’t experience any back pain or incontinence!

6.  Does the client experience any back pain or pain during her activities of daily life (ADL’s)? Especially in the case of a longstanding Distension with a firm mid-line, if the client has good continence and no back pain and is happy with her tummy…..who are we try to ‘fix’ her.
 
Answers to all of the above questions will give you a much fuller picture of your clients’ true core strength and capabilities and help you create a more realistic core strength programme suitable for the demands of her life.

Why You Need to MOVE to Work Your Pelvic Floor!

16 May

By Jenny Burrell BSc (Hons), Founder of Burrell Education (www.burrelleducation.com)
Specialist Pregnancy and Post Natal Fitness & Therapy Education

BIG NEWS! The pelvic floor musculature does not exist and function in isolation! So……when we consider restoring it’s function and strength,  especially after birthing, MOVEMENT (the right amount at the right time) has to be part of our exercise prescription.  Eventually our prescription for the PF needs to be INTEGRATED, WHOLE BODY AND CHALLENGE THE ENTIRE MYOFASCIAL AND CONNECTIVE TISSUE SYSTEM.

First up….The Abdominal Aponeuroses

The Abdominal Aponeuroses are sheets of tendon that cover and connect the abdominal muscles to the pelvic girdle.  In terms of it’s relationship to the pelvic floor muscles (especially the anterior musculature), concentric and eccentric movement of not only the abdominal muscles but connecting aponeuroses and fascia ALL HAVE A SYNERGISTIC AND POSITIVE EFFECT ON THE PELVIC FLOOR ie., lift both of your arms into the air at the same time so they end  up just past your ears and ‘listen’ to what your pelvic floor has to say…..can you feel a change in its tension and a tightening?  Yes?  That’s the relationship between the muscles, fascia and tendons stretching from your pubis to your sternum talking to you!

Next up, the Anterior Longditudinal Ligament (ALL) and Posterior Longditudinal Ligaments (PLL).  When I first discovered these two ligaments, it was a major lightbulb moment, gee whizz! So to keep this simple,  I’ll focus on the ALL, this continuum of ligament runs alongside the spinal column from the cervical region to the sacrum where there are fascial links to…..guess where?  THE PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLES.  So what does that mean in exercise terms?  Flex and extend the spine ie., BEND OVER AND RETURN and you also work your Pelvic Floor!

Now onto the adductors of the femur.  Just take a look at where the proximal attachments fasten – extremely close to the PF!  And guess what?  Thanks to fascia, everytime your adductors are fired the PF muscles are too!

The deep lateral rotators of the femur, namely the Gemellus and Obturator muscles facilitate abduction of the femur.  They are all intimately posititioned within the pelvic basis proximal to the PF muscles and thanks to the fascia factor, firing these muscles also fire the PF  muscles.

Ok, so now onto the rest of your ‘CORE’

In the most basic terms, the components of the  ‘CORE’ can be defined as the pelvic floor muscles, the TVA, the diaphragm and the lumbar muscles and fascia.  These 4 components all work reciprocally and are synergized by respiration.  Point in case:

  • Breathe out throught pursed lips and simultaneously pull your belly button in towards your spine, can you eventually feel your pelvic floor muscles lifting and tightening?  That’s the synergistic relationship between your PF, diaphragm and your TVA.
  • Do this again and this time take your attention toward the muscles of your low back this time, now can you also feel these muscles tensioning too?

So, in summary…..

  • Squat or take your legs apart (abduction) – the pelvic floor is active.
  • Squeeze your knees together especially against resistance (a pilates ball or ring) – the pelvic floor is active.
  • Perform flexion to extension (bend over) – the pelvic floor is active.
  • Breathe in and out – the pelvic floor is active.
  • Move into throacic extension – the pelvic floor is active.

The pelvic floor also loves…..

  • Whole Body Vibration – yes, the vibration works on those muscles too!  From a Powerplate to a Flexibar, it’s all good.
  • Working against gravity, and snappy movement – from hopping foot to foot to full blown plomentric jumping
  • A neutral pelvis and beautifully aligned posture
  • A global myofascial system free of tension and restriction

I hope that’s helped you to reconsider what you consider to be PELVIC FLOOR EXERCISE and if you liked this blog, and would like to know more about my modern, inspiring education, check out the Burrell Education website: www.burrelleducation.com.

My June 15th Modern Post Natal Assesment  & Exercise Prescription CPD has SOLD OUT! So I’ve decided to add another date on Friday 22nd June.  If you’d like to attend, please book sharpish as 4 places have already gone.

…..and not a Kegel in Sight! MODERN Pelvic Floor Exercise

16 May

By:  Jenny Burrell BSc (Hons), Pre/Post Natal Exercise Specialist & Founder of Burrell Education (www.burrelleducation.com).

OK ,the gig is finally up on ONLY performing Kegels to re-activate and  re-condition the Pelvic Floor!  Don’t get me wrong, after giving birth when the musculature, nerve and blood supply, fascia and ligaments of the Pelvic Floor and Pelvic Basin have undergone significant trauma or at the very least, have been stretched by carrying the weight of a growing baby,  Kegels are a vital tool.  In the every early days after vaginal birthing and C-Section, performing Kegels can provide a lifeline to knowing that you are still in one piece!  Also, performing Kegels for both the anterior, mid and posterior muscles of the PF assist with healing, bringing nutrient –rich blood and healing agents to wounded tissue.   And still after the acute trauma phase has passed these muscle contractions can still help to recondition the PF and restore function.  But there comes a point when Kegels are not really ‘functional’ – ie., preparing the mom for real life, after all…..afterall, who pees themselves when they are stood still?  It’s usually during movement and an increase in intra-abdominal pressure that the PF fails and urinary incontinence is experienced.  So, introducing  MODERN MOVEMENT-BASED PELVIC FLOOR EXERCISE, spearheaded by forward-thinkers such as Eric Franklin and many other specialists in this field across the pond.

Any Pre/Post Health & Fitness Specialist worth his/her salt now knows that the PF muscles respond much more to a host of functional movements such as squatting, lunging, hopping, moving in multiple planes, gravity and vibration.  Here are some tested functional movements and the microvolt reading (electrical potential of the PF muscles as contraction occurs) versus Kegels.  (These were measured using a vaginal probe).   I think you’ll find them pretty impressive!  NB these exercises were performed without adding either conscious TVA activation or a Kegel contraction!

Kegel vs Movement – EMG Testing Summary

So,  in short, the Pelvic Floor LOVES MOVEMENT!  When the time is right and your mommy is out of her acute phase (and been given the goahead by her HCP to exercise – she must have had her 6 week check!) You need to get her squatting, lunging and moving in multiple planes – where appropriate.  You need to get her working her PF against gravity (start with mini hops on an empty bladder), introduce her to vibration (Power Plate or Flexi-Bars are both awesome tools for whole body vibration that includes the Pelvic Floor) and give simple adduction, abduction and pelvic tilting exercises as homework (great for when watching her favourite soap).

So Trainers!!!!  Let’s get those mommies moving for real-life solution to a real-life problem.  They’ll thank you forever.  Remember, it’s all about more laughs and less leaks!  Incidentally if your client base includes the post menopausal woman, this information is just as applicable!

Remember, keep it passionate, mediocrity is a sin!

Core And Pillar Strength for the Pregnant Client

8 May

By Jenny Burrell BSc (Hons), Founder of Burrell Education (www.burrelleducation.com)
Specialist Pregnancy and Post Natal Fitness & Therapy Education

 
This information is intended for use by the specialist Pre/Post Natal Health and Fitness Professional.  If you are a mom, please seek advice and guidance from a qualified professional.  If you are a qualified professional, the following exercises are suitable for the LOW RISK PREGNANCIES ONLY.


1.  Resistance Band Deadlifts – Deadlifts….. but not as you know them! This version is still highly effective with a strong band and much more appropriate for the pregnant client that a 20kg barbell!  Ensure your band has a good level of tension before starting by wrapping it around the fist.  Good form protocols still apply – work with a ‘strong back’ and ‘drive through the heels and exhale as you rise’.  Really great work for the glutes, hamstrings, working the bend-to-extend pattern and fascia/musculature of the lumbar and thoracic back.  Great for off-setting upper body postural changes that typically occur during pregnancy.

2.  Flexi-Bar Plie Squats

The Pelvic Floor LOVES functional movement including wide-legged squats.  Add the extra challenge of gentle vibration via the Flexi-Bar to the WHOLE CORE.  Amazing work for the thighs, glutes, core including the all important Pelvic Floor and of course a wicked workout for the arms and shoulder….supersized multi-tasking – excellent for time-poor mommies.  Take care to coach regular breathing while the client is working.  There’s sometimes a tendency to hold the breath while concentrating on getting the movement right with the Flexi-Bar.  NB:  Not suitable for clients suffering SPD or any other type of Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

3.  Single Leg Sits to Chair/Bench

For my moneyand I hope yours too, the ‘Core’ includes the GLUTES TOO!  This single leg work targets both Glute Max and Med and looks so simple but is really challenging and highly effective (especially as the clients’ bump grows).  Keeping the glutes strong can help offset the drop into an anteriorly tilted pelvis, which is bad news for the lumbar spine and turns off the Pelvic Floor!!!

4.  ‘Draw The Swords’

The pregnant client is prone to developing Upper Crossed Syndrome due to changes in her centre of gravity caused by boob and belly growth.  Incorporating strength work for her Thoracic area to promote better posture is essential.  Use an appropriate weight, a cable machine or a strong dynaband both work well.

 

5.  Resistance Band Scap Retraction into Chest Opener

A great 2 in 1 exercise to give as homework.  Drawing the band wide at the front of the chest causes scapular retraction, strengthening those upper back posture muscles and then taking the band overhead opens up and stretches the often tight and shortenend pecs, anterior delts and biceps.  Brilliant use of time and highly effective!  PS just as valuable in the post natal period when moms spend lots of time in the feeding position.

How to Create an Awesome Pregnancy and Post Natal Massage Service

3 May

By Jenny Burrell BSc (Hons), Founder of Burrell Education, Specialist For Pregnancy and Post Natal Fitness & Therapy, London, UK.

  

www.burrelleducation.com

I began my massage journey nearly a decade ago studying for the ITEC Holistic Massage Certification and as soon as I began my studies, something just clicked.  For me, the skin-to-skin element of using massage and other hands-on bodywork techniques to connect with and help my Pre/Post clients seemed to be the perfect way to compliment the physical expenditure of one-to-one fitness training.

As a Pregnancy and Post Natal Fitness Specialist, my goal was always to progress onto deeper levels of study that would specifically empower me to help my Pre/Post clients and after embarking on  further study at  North London School of Sports Massage and other top London massage schools, I finally had the skills that could be honed into helping my own niche client base.

Fast forward 7 years and thanks to the support of Susan and the team at NLSSM, I created and now tutor their 2-Day CPD offering.

Next 2 Day CPD Course Date: Saturday/Sunday 19th & 20th May, 2012.

If you are a certified Massage Therapist wanting to extend your offerings to help the Pre/Post Natal client or a fitness professional with Pre/Post Natal clients and a massage qualification, this weekend CPD course will give you a ready-to-go, entire skill-set to help you create a stand-out service that will keep clients coming back time-after-time and keep them referring for you.

If you have any knowledge at all of the rigours of Pregnancy,  you’ll know that the myofascial and skeletal system is put under immense duress and undergoes a complete transformation in terms of function.  This dysfunction usually leads to soft tissue discomfort and pain, most of which can be alleviated by massage therapy and bodywork.  You’ll find that Pre/Post Natal clients will be some of your most grateful customers.

Typical Pregnancy Into Post Natal Period Posture (Client at 17 Weeks Post Birth)


The Top 20 Areas Where The Pregnant/ Post Natal Client May Have Pain and Discomfort & Why?

  1. QL’s – the anterior tilted pelvis causes shortening
  2. Lats – the anterior tilted pelvis causes shortening and scapular abduction causes length tension
  3. Intercostals – breathing patterns change as the ever-growing baby demands more space causing further rib flaring
  4. ITB (Origin and Insertion) – changes to posture and biomechanics may cause pain
  5. Quads – tightness in attachments at both the hip and knee
  6. Calves – changes in plantarfascia reflected further up the myofascial chain
  7. Plantar Fascia  – changes to tension due to dramatic increase in weight biomechanics
  8. Biceps – creeping scapular abduction closing down anterior musculature – breastfeeding and ADLs all contribute
  9. Anterior Delts – creeping scapular abduction closing down anterior musculature – breastfeeding and ADLs all contribute
  10. Pectorals – creeping scapular abduction closing down anterior musculature – breastfeeding and ADLs all contribute
  11. Rhomboids – creeping scapular abduction causing length tension – breastfeeding and ADLs all contribute
  12. Upper Traps – forward head posture due to change in weight/size and centre of gravity causes forward head posture and associated changes in tension of neck and shoulder musculature
  13. Levator Scapulae – forward head posture draws origin away from insertion causing length tension
  14. Sub Occipital Region – see above
  15. Platsyma –forward head posture causes length tension in the anterior neck
  16. Erector Spinae & Lumbar Region – increased lumbar lordosis and lack of exercise in this area causes shortening and dysfunction
  17. C- Section Scar Tissue –  Valuable work can be done to educate and instruct client to self-administer gentle massage to help avoid the build-up of restrictive scar tissue
  18. Tibialis Anterior – change in posture and biomechanics of the foot can be reflected in the anterior aspect of the lower leg
  19. Carpal Tunnel – fluid retention affects passage of nerve impulses through Carpal Tunnel, massage can aid dispersion of fluid build-up.
  20. Piriformis Pain – anterior tilted pelvis, everted foot fall and weakening of anterior Pelvic Floor muscles all contribute to increased tension and shortening.

Techniques You’ll Learn Over the Weekend

  1. How to address ALL  of the above areas and issues! Applying a suitable strategy specific to client’s needs.
  2. How to position and massage the Pregnant client – elevated supine, side-lying supported by bolsters.
  3. How to position and massage the Post Natal client – especially after C-Section.
  4. How to use a sheet for draping the client instead of towels.
  5. How to modify the traditional massage strokes, when the client is in the side-lying position.
  6. You’ll learn or polish your Soft Tissue Release (STR) skills.  (Shorten, LOCK target tissue, move to lengthen away from the direction of the LOCK’).  STR is so flexible that is can be used on all of the 20 listed areas above.
  7. Appropriate Contract/Relax Methods
