In this episode, I sit down with fellow physiotherapist, Brittany Klingmann to discuss:

  • Various messages that people hear regarding weight lifting and the pelvic floor:
  • “Weightlifting causes too much pressure on the pelvic floor”
  • “Weightlifting causes prolapse”
  • “Valsalva should be avoided and you should always exhale when you lift”
  • “Weight lifting is too hard on the pelvic floor and that is why you leak”
  • Brittany’s personal journey with CrossFit and weightlifting
  • The use of weightlifting belts
  • Tips for people who want to progress to lifting
  • A recent study published by Christina Prevett et al ‘Impact of Heavy Resistance Training on Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Outcomes’

Brittany is an Orthopaedic and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist who has now been practicing for 12 years. She currently lives in Halifax, NS and works at Young Kempt Physiotherapy. Although her caseload remains very diverse, a growing percentage is dedicated to Pelvic Health and an athletic population participating in CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting.
As a mother of 2 beautiful babies who came into the world by c-sections she has experienced her unique journey and challenges with regards to returning to fitness and heavy lifting postpartum, and with that lived experience a passion for helping individuals navigating their desire to participated in the sports or activities they love evolved.
Brittany has the wonderful opportunity to blend the worlds of orthopedics and pelvic health by working with clients through our satellite clinic at Ironstone Strength and Conditioning.
Outside of the clinic, I love to spend time with my husband and two children. We are always up for an outdoor adventure. She also has developed a love and passion for Olympic Weightlifting and in the fall of 2022 she met the qualifying standard for the World Masters Weightlifting Championships. She plans to make her international competition debut this Summer in Krakow, Poland, representing Canada at the World Masters Weightlifting Championships.
