Kegel exercises are also known as pelvic floor muscle training or pelvic muscle strengthening exercises. This routine requires the tightening and relaxing of the pelvic floor several times in a row.
Some women experience a weakened pelvic floor after childbirth or surgery, too much straining due to excessive coughing or constipation, aging, and being overweight. Kegel may not be effective for severe cases of urine and fecal incontinence.
Kegels were originally designed for women’s health. However, it has been recently discovered that men can also benefit from this exercise.
