Pelvic floor expert demonstrates how to have ‘the perfect poo’
| Last updated
It's a few minutes of each day that a lot us rather enjoy, but did you know there is actually a way to go about achieving 'the perfect poo'?
Yep, it should be as simple as placing your bottom on the toilet seat and doing your business, right?
Well, not exactly - a pelvic floor expert explains.
Demonstrating on a chair instead of the toilet seat, George showcased the actions to taking the perfect dump while adding captions on screen to help viewers along the way.
To start with, the pelvic floor expert wrote: "Feet up on a squatty potty/bin/toilet paper."
She then told viewers to 'relax' their belly while lengthening their pelvic floor.
Following that, poo-goers are encouraged to undertake some pelvic circles, while George asked those who feel they need to create more of an urge to go or feel they are not done with their business to commit to a stand up sit down sequence.
George's final tip to achieve a 'perfect poo' is to 'always respond' - essentially head to the toilet when you have the urge you gotta go.
Pretty simple, right?
If you are looking for even more toilet tips then George really is the person you want to be hitting up.
In another video uploaded to TikTok, she explained everything you need to know around the number of wipes you are doing on the toilet.
The physiotherapist said: "When you are wiping more than two or three times, that is called faecal smearing.
"So it is essentially when too much faecal matter stays at the entrance of the anus even after you have finished your poo."
So, essentially you still have too much poo left around the entrance even after you're done. That clear?
However, there is a technique that you can also use to minimise the amount of wiping necessary.
George explained: "A technique that you can use to reduce the number of times you wipe is by squeezing your pelvic floor in a waterfall formation.
"So start by squeezing the anus 20 percent, then 50 percent, 80 percent, and 100 percent, so that you have squeezed it four times at the end of your poo."
She continued: "This can help close off the anus sphincter, which is the reason you are having little bits of stool hanging on the entrance - it is usually from weakness from that external sphincter."
Remember this next time you are on the toilet, eh?
