Make Sure you Exercise your Pelvic Floor

 

The most under used under rated exercise of all time!

The pelvic floor consists of layers of muscles that stretch like a supportive hammock from the pubic bone (at the front) to the end of the back bone supporting your internal organs.

Pelvic floor exercises strengthen the muscles around your bladder, vagina or penis, and back passage and by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can help stop incontinence, treat prolapse, and make sex better, too.

Men and Women have a Pelvic Floor

Both men and women can benefit from doing pelvic floor exercises.

To find your pelvic floor muscles, pull in as if you are trying to stop your self from going for a wee, or from passing wind. Both preferably!

To strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, sit comfortably and squeeze the muscles 10-15 times in a row.

Don’t hold your breath or tighten your stomach, buttock or thigh muscles at the same time.

When you get used to doing pelvic floor exercises, you can try holding each squeeze for a few seconds.

Every week, you can add more squeezes, but be careful not to overdo it and always have a rest between sets of squeezes.

After a few months, you should start to notice the results. You should carry on doing the exercises, even when you notice them starting to work.
