Improve Blood Flow to Penis
Kegel exercises can address many male concerns. They improve the volume and pressure of blood flowing to the penis and surrounding areas, making erections easier to achieve and maintain. Greater blood flow means greater stamina, and will give the look of a larger penis due to stronger erections.
Regularly performing kegels can also help men experience more satisfying, intense climaxes. The pelvic floor muscles maintain control over the flow of semen, so strengthening them will improve control over ejaculation and may eliminate the issue of premature ejaculation.
The exercises will also have benefits outside the bedroom. Many men have difficulty maintaining a steady flow of urine, or experience what is known as post-micturition dribble. This is a condition which causes a slow leak of urine after a man has gone to the bathroom, and can become an embarrassing issue if not addressed. While these may be issues more common in older males, starting a kegel routine in younger years can prevent many urinary issues from every developing.
Pelvic Floor Muscles
Actually performing kegel exercises is very simple, once the correct muscles are found. The kegel actually involves different muscles of the pelvic floor group. The easiest way to isolate these muscles is to actively stop the flow of urine. The muscles required to stop urination in mid-flow are the same muscles that will improve male sexual performance.
Secondary Muscles Improved
It is important not to use secondary muscles, like the abs or the glutes, since these will diminish the positive effects. Breathing should remain relaxed and controlled, with no breath holding or straining. Some people find it easier to start out laying on their backs to take gravity our of the equation, and to progress to standing as the feeling becomes more natural.
Once the muscles have been identified, strengthening them is simple. They should be contracted, as if the flow of urine is being stopped, and held for as long as possible. At first this might be quite difficult, and the contraction may only be held for a few seconds. With practice, the length of contraction can be increased. Once the correct technique has been established, kegel exercises should not be performed during urination, as this can lead to urinary issues over time.
Eight to Ten Minutes Per Day
Eventually, men will want to progress to a routine of eight to ten minutes of kegels performed every other day. Initially it is acceptable to practice every day, particularly if urinary incontinence is an issue. It is not necessary to exercise these muscles daily once a routine has been established, as they need time to rest and recuperate just like any other muscle in the body. More advanced routines include holding and releasing the pelvic floor muscles in a burst like pattern, or varying the amount of rest time between sets.
The best thing about kegel exercises is that they can be done practically anywhere. Exercises can be performed in a meeting, while watching a game, or having a meaningful conversation with a significant other. Nobody will know, and increased confidence and stamina in the bedroom will be well on its way.
Improved Sexual Performance
While doing exercises can help prepare the body for improved sexual performance, they can also help men during sex. Once the ability to hold a kegel contraction for at least ten to fifteen seconds has been established, men can attempt to perform a kegel to delay ejaculation. As the sensation emerges, the kegel should be initiated and held for as long as possible, until the feeling subsides. Such control will take practice, but is certainly possible thanks to kegel exercises.
While there can be underlying medical issues causing some sexual health problems, often the answer to better performance and a larger penis is as simple as a few kegel squeezes.
