We understand strength training is important for building bone density, decreasing musculoskeletal injury, improving athletic performance, psychological well-being and more, however the health of the female pelvic floor can be vulnerable at times (for instance after childbirth), potentially leading to pelvic floor dysfunction.

Because of the potential for dysfunction, advice on strength training in females is often conflicted with many health professionals advising against it completely or blindly restricting the amount of load, despite the lack of research in this area and popularity of female participation in strength training.
