Kegel Exercises: Here's How to Do Them Right (Don't Be Embarrassed)!

There’s nothing like talking about Kegels to make someone feel uncomfortable! Still, these exercises are important for a women’s health. If done properly, Kegel exercises will strengthen a woman’s pelvic floor muscles. 

  • For best results, focus on contracting only your pelvic floor muscles for 10 seconds and then relax for 10 seconds. Try this five times. 
  • Do not flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. 
  • Breathe freely during the exercises. 

The great thing is you can do this anywhere and no one will notice. Don’t do them, however, and, well, people might notice!
