True and Awesome: Kegels Aren’t Just for Women

We’re not the first people to sing the praises of Kegels for women, but did you know that men can do them too?  Not only can Kegels help with men’s prostate health, doing them can lead to better orgasms and stronger erections.  Sounds like some pretty compelling reasons to get started.  Here’s how:

First, find which muscles to target.  Start and stop the flow of urine halfway through urination.  These are the muscles you need to contract.  You can also imagine that you need to pass gas, and the muscles you contract to stop that are the ones you need.

Contract muscles for a count of 5, then release for a count of 5.  Repeat the exercise 10 times for a set.  Do 3 sets daily.  

Over time, you can add in a few repetitions of a 20 second contraction.  It may take a few weeks to see results, but it will be well worth it!
