3 Reasons Men Should Do Pelvic Floor Exercises, Too
Ever think about men’s pelvic health? It’s no secret that pelvic floor exercises are important for women – after all, these muscles help keep everything “in place.” Every woman has practiced Kegels at some point in her life. But what many people don’t know is that in some cases, men can also benefit from these exercises. A strong pelvic floor supports organs and organ health in men and women alike. In fact, there are a few good reasons why every man should be doing pelvic floor exercises regularly.
Men, You Have Power Over Your Pelvic Health
The truth is, many people are too embarrassed to look for answers to their most personal health questions. And men tend to be even more hesitant than women. But men, you can take charge of your pelvic health! Whether you are struggling with frustrating symptoms or just want to take a proactive approach, now is the best time to begin.
So why should you do pelvic floor exercises? Here are three reasons to get started today.
Take control of incontinence
Do you have a hard time “holding it,” or experience urine leakage even after you’ve left the bathroom? Do you stand at the urinal for longer than you should, waiting for your bladder to release? These are all signs that your pelvic floor isn’t functioning properly.
Pelvic floor muscles need to be strong and function well enough to support your pelvic organs, including your bladder and intestines, but they also need to be able to release when appropriate. By doing pelvic floor exercises like Kegels and others designed to tone your muscles, you can overcome the main cause of incontinence.
Be sure to seek out reliable information about isolating and working the right muscles as you begin your pelvic floor exercises. And don’t make the mistake of thinking that all pelvic floor muscle training is about Kegels! Find out more about supporting your pelvic floor health here.
Increase your stamina and sexual performance
No one wants to admit they’re struggling in the bedroom. Unfortunately, our society has made sexual dysfunction about shame and incompetence. But men, you don’t have to suffer in silence. You can take action by talking to a professional and beginning an exercise plan.
Pelvic floor exercises increase blood flow to the pelvic organs, which can lead to stronger erections and more intense orgasms. Plus, they can help you last longer in bed by improving your stamina and control.
Sexual dysfunction is not something you have to just accept and live with!
Support your overall pelvic health
Your internal organs aren’t going to support themselves! Pelvic floor exercises are a great way to build your pelvic health. Strong pelvic muscles can help improve core strength and organ function, which means you’ll be fitter and feel better. And having a strong core leads to better mobility and stability.
The next time you’re at the gym, remember that it’s just as important to work the muscles you can’t see as the ones you can. Strong biceps and a six-pack are only part of the picture when it comes to your health. Men, your pelvic health is an important piece of the puzzle. Don’t neglect it!
