How to Fit Kegel and Pelvic Floor Exercises Into a Modern Lifestyle

With today’s hectic lifestyle, it becomes more and more difficult to fit in an exercise regime.

Some people say, “Oh, I just don’t have the time!” But, that’s the beauty of Kegel and pelvic floor exercises. It is possible to do them virtually anywhere.

Strap-hanging on the tube or bus on the way to work, in your car waiting for the traffic lights to change, standing in line at the bus stop or supermarket checkout, these are all places that you can squeeze and release without anyone around you noticing.

Alternatively, at home, it is possible to do a few whilst working your way through the ironing or the washing up or in that down time whilst waiting for the kettle to boil or the microwave to ping.

Concentrate on standing correctly, pull in your core and lift your pelvic floor.

You can also do them sitting down so, if you’re working at your desk or taking a coffee break with a newspaper, during the commute to work on the bus or the train, at the cinema or theatre or even between courses at a dinner party.

It is the genital area which benefits most obviously from a regular Kegel work-out.

For men, improved and more enduring sexual performance, as well as the extra blood flow keeping that prostate gland healthy. And, for the ladies, tighter vaginal muscles. This is why the bedroom is one of the best places to practice.

What better, from the woman’s perspective, than to get real-time feedback on how well she’s doing and whether there is an improvement in the strength of her contractions?

And, for the guys, to learn which method of controlling the thrust and angle of his trajectory is the most effective?

Cystitis, hemorrhoids and problems with bladder control when you sneeze or jump will all benefit from the improved muscle tone and better blood flow to the area, which are natural consequences of regular Kegels.

Making kegel and pelvic floor exercises part of your normal schedule is crucial. Being able to fit them routinely into your normal schedule will provide tremendous benefits to your future health.

Of course, there are going to be those days when it really is just impossible. So why not just double up the next day…?
