Four Exercises That Are the Best for Pelvic Floor Muscles
For women, these exercises aid with a lower risk of vaginal prolapsed, better bowel and bladder control, and improved recovery after giving a birth. For men, they benefit by speeding recovery after prostate surgery, decrease the risk of rectal prolapsed, and improve bowel and bladder control. These are the best four exercises for this group of muscles:
- Kegel exercise: sit in a comfortable position, close the eyes, and visualize the muscles that can stop urine flow. Try to tighten these muscles as much as possible. Hold for 3–5 seconds. Release the muscles and rest for a few seconds. Repeat up to ten times.
- Squeeze and release: sit in a position that can be comfortable for you. Picture the pelvic floor muscles. Squeeze the muscles as quickly as possible. Rest for 3–5 seconds and then repeat up to 10 or 20 times.
- Bridge: lie down on your back, bend the knees, and place your feet on the floor on the width of hips, The arms should be lying alongside your body with the palms downward. Contract the buttocks and pelvic floor to lift the buttocks several inches above the ground. Hold this position from 3 to 8 seconds. Relax the buttocks and the pelvic floor. Repeat up to 10 times. Try to perform 2 repetitions more.
- Squats: feet are apart on the hip-width, flat on the ground. Bend the knees to lower the buttocks toward the ground. Keep your back straight. Knees are in line with toes. Tighten the buttocks and the pelvic floor when returning to a standing position. Repeat up to 10 times.
