Found these video samples on Katy Bowen's website. Not sure if they are clips of her dvd(s), but thought they might be of interest on this thread.

I'm not fond of kegals either.

When I first started jumping on my rebounder this summer with abandoned joy, I felt the pressure to run to the bathroom after five minutes, like clockwork. Now I don't, in fact I nearly bonked my head on the ceiling the other day and I still don't get the urge. I have a happy suspicion the rebounder is better then kegals too.

There have been some good threads lately addressing Katy's method (and blog). Here's one of them, along with a link to the discussion re: kegels between Katy and the KegelQueen:

Well, I never do kegels and I have given birth to 10 children and have never suffered from incontinence, ever, not even while a was pregnant. I can do 200 jumping jacks while sneezing and I have no leakage. I always attributed it to having such a strong pelvic floor. Now, I know that is why for sure. I am a squat queen, so there you have it. That article is so true for me. People would always ask me how I could do all those jumping jacks after having all those babies. I didn't get it back then, but over the years I have talked to many women with that problem. So everyone, keep squatting!!!!

I've never had any children, and I'm a pee-er And I do squats, have been doing them for about 10 years now.

I have a desk job and I am convinced that my chair is slowly eroding my glutes. I do exercises just for the glutes in addition to squats and lunges. Maybe I need to haul out the step again, because that always punched things up for me.

Kegels never helped. Does having a tipped uterus factor into any of this (yes, I am anatomically ignorant)?

I don't know -- never had peeing issues during or after any of my three pregnancies, but I do like squats and I do kegels regularly. There are other benefits to doing kegels regularly and keeping all those muscles strong, ahem.

I think heredity can play a role in this problem, too. I don't know. I have had a tipped uterus since baby #1. Googling it can give you some information about the causes and how to prevent it.

That's truly an enlightening article. I'm going to try to squats every day now.
