LET'S TALK ABOUT LEAKING IN SPORT

No it isn't just reserved for women who have children. In fact the statistics are higher than you might think:

-In cross fit: 75% leak with skipping, 34% when running, 43% during box jumps, 71% during double unders

- 57% of trampolinists

- 28% of fitness instructors

Other than the fact that leaking is unpleasant it's important to appreciate that it actually means that your core system is unable to manage your intrabdominal pressure, usually when we ask something more of it like jumping, a rugby tackle or heavy lifting! If we dont train our core system effectively it can result in pain, leaking, abdominal bracing and eaesthetic implications and ultimately movement inefficiency and sub optional performance.
