Stephanie Taylor says:

I’m a great fan of Michelle Kenway – she is a pioneer in safe exercises for
women with a weak pelvic floor or prolapse – her books and films are
available in the UK here

Kelly Wilkinson says:

I’ve never had the coordination and strength to do a proper superman so
THANK you for showing a few versions I can try. I really like the last one
using the pillow.

Stephanie Taylor says:

Great range of easy to do exercises that will really help those with both
back problems and a weak pelvic floor. Don’t forget that lower back pain
can also be a sign of a weak pelvic floor!

Michelle Kenway says:

Great point – Superman is such a great deep core stabiliser the deep
muscles of the lower back (multifides) and deepest abdominals (transverse
abdominis) thanks so much for your comment! Cheers Michelle

So important to start on therapeutic back exercises earlier before it
becomes a problem. Thanks for sharing this exercise with us!

Fantasticifaction says:

It may be interesting to mention the deeper core muscles, being the m.
multifidus and m. transversus abdominis. This excercise misses its target
if these muscles are not taken into consideration.
