Quick flick Kegels

This exercise requires pretty quick contractions of the floor muscles to help them get activated faster and become stronger enough to prevent the leaks while laughing or coughing.

  • One needs to lie down on the floor and have the knees bent, and the feet should be flat on the floor.
  • Exhale and pull the navel near to your spine. Quickly contract and release the floor muscles. Contract for about a second before releasing.
  • Breathe steadily throughout.
  • Repeat this quick flick about ten times and rest for 10 seconds. Repeat the sets for 2-3 times.

Heel slides

This exercise will encourage the floor muscle contractions while the deep abdominal muscles

will be under target.

  • Lie down on the floor, have the knees bent, and the pelvis must be placed neutrally.
  • Inhale into the rib cage and exhale through your mouth. Let the ribs contract naturally.
  • Next, draw the pelvic floor muscles upward and lock them into your core. Slide onto your right heel, which is away from you.
  • Find the right bottom position, inhale, and bring your leg back to the initial position.
  • Repeat this over.
  • Repeat ten slides on each side before moving on to the next leg.

There are many benefits of these exercises. Like any other muscle in your body, the floor muscles perform the best when they are strong and functioning perfectly. They will be released after a complete contraction. And, with healthy muscles, it will be easier for you to support your bladder, uterus, and bowels. The bowel and bladder movements will also be synchronized.
