Kegel Exercises; Not just for Women

Men can benefit from performing the Kegel Exercise too

Dr. Kegel found that men who practise doing this exercise helped in the prevention of premature ejaculation, maintain a stronger erection as well as strengthen hips and it may be beneficial in treating urinary incontinence in both men and women. For women it can help with sexual gratification during intercourse and orgasm. It is also known to aid women and prep the body for childbirth. So this is a very important exercise to incorporate into your workout routine.

How to do Kegel exercises (from the Mayo Clinics web site)

It takes diligence to identify your pelvic floor muscles and learn how to contract and relax them. Here are some pointers:
  • Find the right muscles. To identify your pelvic floor muscles, stop urination in midstream. If you succeed, you've got the right muscles.
  • Perfect your technique. Once you've identified your pelvic floor muscles, empty your bladder and lie on your back. Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for five seconds, and then relax for five seconds. Try it four or five times in a row. Work up to keeping the muscles contracted for 10 seconds at a time, relaxing for 10 seconds between contractions.
  • Maintain your focus. For best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles. Be careful not to flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Avoid holding your breath. Instead, breathe freely during the exercises.
  • Repeat 3 times a day. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day.
