Repeat 10-15 times, and do 2-3 sets each day.
Add 1 second each week until you are able to squeeze for 10 seconds each time.
**Don’t forget to breathe.
**Your stomach and thigh muscles should not tighten when you do this.
**Don’t do Kegel exercises while you urinate. Doing so can harm your bladder.
Here’s a description of the exercise specific to men, helpful in locating the pelvic floor muscles.
A regular Kegel exercise practice can benefit both men and women for these three reasons alone
Incontinence Issues. A doctor may prescribe kegel exercises to combat incontinence issues. There’s nothing like peeing your pants, if only just a little, while jogging, sneezing, coughing or laughing out loud. While you may not have any issues now, strengthening your pelvic floor can help keep everything in place, especially as you age or have babies. Squeeze…2….3.
Core Strengthening. Strengthening the muscles of your pelvic floor can help you stabilize your pelvis during movement. Maintaining a level pelvis while running or walking, can minimize inefficient side-to-side movement, or sway (think of a model walking down a runway – very sexy, and great to display tight pants, but not so great for your IT band or hip flexors). Minimize inefficient movement. Squeeze…2…3.
Enhanced sexual pleasure for your mate. Go ahead and practice with someone inside of you. Enough said. Squeeze….2….3. (There has also been some evidence that kegel exercises help with erectile dysfunction, although more research needs to be done.)
