Do More Jumping Jacks – Live Confidently with LBL

This post brought to you by Poise at Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.

We all know there are things that no one tells you about motherhood.

Usually they don’t tell you because they are the things that would SCARE YOU AWAY.

And it really is annoying that such a natural thing as bearing children can leave women with light bladder leakage (LBL).

Here you are post-pregnancy hoping to get your pre-body back. You start working out, only to discover that some of your body functions seem to have a life of their own. You avoid anything that results in any kind of impact.

  • Running
  • Jumping jacks
  • Basketball
  • The backyard trampoline

Because with that jiggle, comes the unthinkable.

A little bit of tinkle.

I was trying to rhyme that but it didn’t work out…oh well…

So rather than admit you have a problem (because it really seems embarrassing) you simply avoid the things that may cause it.

But you don’t have to.

First, one in three women develop LBL so you are not alone.

Second, Poise has got you covered – literally.


Poise Microliners are these amazingly thin liners made of SAM, a super absorbent material that can help you have the confidence you need to do more jumping jacks or just about any exercise you want.

Look at how thin they are!


Not only do they help you regain your confidence, Poise Microliners do it discreetly. They are so thin that you don’t even know they are there when you wear them. This means they won’t slow you down during your workouts!

I wanted to know exactly how much protection a single liner would offer me so I decided to test them with water.

With 1 tsp in my handy little measuring cup, I poured it onto the liner.


1 tsp was perfect, it did not leak but still seemed like it would absorb a bit more. The top of the liner remained mostly dry and nothing leaked out.

1 tsp is a lot of jumping jacks, and really is the peace of mind you need when you suffer from LBL.

Poise Microliners with SAM are the thinnest micro-liner on the market. They are designed for LBL which really is best described as an unexpected leak. The sleek Poise Microliner can handle a lot of unexpected leaks. I don’t know for sure how many jumping jacks you would need to do to equal 1 tsp of leaks but based upon my test, they would easily keep you dry and comfortable through an entire workout session, whatever workout you choose.

It’s hard enough finding the time and motivation to exercise. Having to worry that LBL will interrupt your workout is not only annoying, but thanks to Poise Microliners that worry is unnecessary.

Where to buy Poise Microliners with SAM

Have you ever experience LBL when working out? Did it prevent you from doing that exercise again?

    Love that they are so incredibly thin. Bulkiness is not fun at all especially in the gym.

    I keep these in my diaper bag. I love how tiny they are, they take up hardly any room and you don’t notice when you are wearing them but they work well.

    I need more jumping jacks in my life. I did NOT see this post going in the direction that it did, though, LOL!

    My ob/gyn told me that most women have this, especially after they have children. I picked some of these up and was shocked at how thin and light they really are!

      Yeah no one tells you though, which I think they should so you know it’s normal.

    I love how you wrote about something that could potentially be so awkward with such a great sense of humor. I haven’t had any LBL issues myself, but I know they’re very common, and it’s fantastic to see it talked about openly and with a sense of humor. Great stuff.

      Thanks! I think you have to have a sense of humor about it. It’s common and people shouldn’t be embarrassed.

    It is amazing how much those little things hold. I don’t have leakage problems but have heard some talk about it. Thank you for sharing.

    I don’t have leakage issues, but there is a whole group of moms in my zumba class who do & there is always a collective sigh when a song with jumps comes on!

    Ohhh how I pray I have avoided this… or that it at least will not start for many more years lol

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/25/2014 at 8:34 am

      I think it’s more common after having kids, and yours are older so you probably avoided it. BUT I’m sure getting older can cause it too so don’t let your guard down LOL
