Strengthen your pelvic floor
Many factors affect the strength of your pelvic floor muscles without that you even notice it. Whether it is a question of posture or just because you often carry heavy loads, it is important to adopt good habits and strengthen your pelvic floor to protect it during effort or exertion.
There is also a multitude of other factors that damage your pelvic floor. Pregnancy, age and aging tissues, the onset of menopause, and hormonal imbalance are only some of them.
What can I do to strengthen my pelvic floor?
The answer is quite simple: you need to exercise regularly to protect and strengthen your pelvic floor! You have to think about your pelvic floor as you think about your abdominal, gluteal, back, and lumbar muscles.
Doesn’t this sound familiar to you? “Oh, I have time, I’ll take care of that later.” It may seem that doing exercises to strengthen your pelvic muscles takes time, but that’s not true. A few minutes a week is enough.
If you follow our advice, you won’t even realize that you’re working out your pelvic floor. And guess what? The benefits are worth it!
When should I train my pelvic floor?
There is no right or wrong moment to do your Kegel exercises. The trick is to do them regularly and to be consistent over time:
In your car at the red light, at the office, sitting in your chair, when you are breastfeeding, or on your sofa in front of the TV, you can do these exercises whenever and wherever you want. Follow these instructions:
- Sit up, straighten up and arch your back slightly.
- Take a deep breath and blow through your mouth without pinching your lips until you feel your stomach going in.
- Contract your pelvic floor, vagina, and anus while you are thinking that you pull them upwards.
- Try to contract your pelvic floor muscles 10 times 10 seconds (to achieve this, go step by step!). Start by increasing the number of contractions and when you manage to do 10 powerful contractions, try to hold each one for 5, 7 to 10 seconds.
After 2 weeks, your pelvic floor will be stronger, and you can start with new exercises. This is a useful exercise for those who do not have much time to devote to pelvic floor therapy.
What are the benefits of a strong and toned pelvic floor?

Let’s get sporty!
Strengthening your pelvic floor is a sport. By doing your exercises, you not only train your pelvic floor but also your thighs, buttocks, and abdominals. Yes! We’re feeling sexier because we’re losing our tummy and we’re working out our butt and training our thighs. A win-win-win-win-situation!
Taking care of the pelvic floor improves blood circulation, oxygenates the tissues, and thus facilitates natural lubricant. The more you learn to contract your pelvic floor, the more it will happen naturally, increasing blood flow and creating lubricant naturally. This will make intimate intercourse easier. No more need for industrial lubricants. Nothing is better than natural.
Who has never felt a few drops of urine in their panties after a loud laugh or sneezing? You often hear about bladder weakness, but it doesn’t hurt to remember that it can be due to a loose pelvic floor. To avoid these uncomfortable moments, strengthen your pelvic floor, and don’t forget to train it!
