IMPORTANT: If you are not certain Pelvic Floor Weakness is the cause of your problems, don’t perform this exercise. Sometimes people can experience pelvic floor dysfunction because the muscles are too tense or spastic and Kegels will aggravate the situation.
Watch this video to learn how to perform Kegel Exercises correctly!
Once you learn how to make the contraction correctly, follow this daily regimen to begin to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
Your program for success:
|20 reps||10 second squeeze w/ 10 second rest in the morning|
|25 reps||1 second squeeze with 5 second rest at lunch|
|20 reps||10 second squeeze with 10 second rest in the evening|
|65 total||contractions a day of sustained and quick contractions|
You should start seeing results in as little as a month but for the full effect, it can take 3-6 months to “bulk” up the muscles – just like when you start any exercise program. Strength and coordination begin to develop first and adding bulk comes later.
Kegels are just the start when it comes to remedying pelvic floor dysfunction. If you don’t address other contributing factors, exercise can all be in vain.
