How are you feeling? There is much more than you thought, isn’t there? Well, to achieve all this, all you eneed to do is a simple exercise. And no, we’re not going to send you to the gym to lift weights or tell you to go for a run. It’s much simpler than that.
What is the pelvic floor?
But first, how about finding out what the pelvic floor is and what its muscles are? The pelvic floor is the set of muscles and ligaments found on the inside of the abdomen that support all the pelvic organs such as the bladder, urethra, uterus, vagina and rectum.
Now that we know what it is and where it is located, the question is: how can I consciously move these muscles? Well, the movement is very simple. The next time you go to the toilet, contract the area until the pee is cut off. There you go, that’s the movement. It is important that you do this just to find out what the movement is and where the pelvic floor is, but no more than that. It’s not healthy to cut off your pee streams.
Once you know the movement, it’s time to experiment a bit: contract for one second and relax for one second, contract for two seconds and relax for two seconds. Then you can incorporate longer contractions: contract for three seconds and relax for six seconds.
These exercises should be done in a position in which you feel comfortable and you should keep your breathing normal and relaxed.
Ideally, these contractions should be done ten times, three times a day for at least 8 weeks. It’s then that the changes will become much more noticeable.
In addition, we have the best tool for these exercises: Chinese balls or Kegel balls.
How do Kegel balls work?
They have one or more internal balls that are slightly weighted and move inside eachother when you move them. Thanks to these, the exercise will be even more effective and easier. Do you want to know why? Once the balls have been inserted, you can do the exercises or simply walk. With the movement, the small weight inside the ball will hit the walls of the pelvic floor and the pelvic floor will contract involuntarily. Yes, you read that right. Thanks to these little weights you will exercise without even realising it.
There are different Kegel balls with different weights. Ideally, you should have several weights and go up as you feel more comfortable with them. But patience, this is not an exercise of wanting to go fast but to do it well, as we have seen above the benefits are many.
Inserting them is as easy as putting in a tampon, although it is advisable to use a water-based lubricant that allows you to feel no pain at all. There are many different ways for you to find your perfect Kegel ball, remember that this is not a painful exercise.
And if all this is not enough for you, here is an extra piece of information that will surely convince you: thanks to these contractions you will gain control over them and you will be able to control your partner when you are having sex. With this, he will feel the whole space much tighter and you will feel much fuller.
