How to do Kegels
- Find the correct muscles to exercise by shutting off your urine in midstream. These are the muscles that you want to exercise.
- The goal is not to just strengthen the muscles, but to have good control over them. Therefore you need to focus not just on the contraction of the muscles, but on the full relaxation of the muscles. To fully relax, breath out and imagine gently pushing out your kegel muscles. (If you are a woman, confirm your technique by putting a finger inside your vagina to feel the contraction, and the relaxation of the muscles).
- REPS – Alternate contracting your kegel muscles for 3 seconds and relaxing for 3 seconds. Do in sets of at least 10.
- ELEVATORS – Contract your kegel muscles for 3 seconds, then contract to a tighter level for 3 seconds, repeat until you cannot go tighter, then work your way down. Relax to the lower level and hold for 3 seconds, then relax at the next lower level, until you are all the way back down. Do in sets of at least 5
- FLUTTERS – contract your kegel muscles as quickly as you can at least 10 times.
- Try to do all 3 types of kegels at least 3 times per day.
Times to exercise your kegel muscles:
- When talking on the phone
- When driving
- While in the shower
- Before you get out of bed in the morning
- While listening to music or watching TV
- During intercourse
