The Kegel exercise is designed to strengthen the pubococcygeal muscle. For this reason this technique is sometimes referred to as the PC exercise. Strengthening the PC muscle can result in stronger erections with greater control of ejaculation. Often the result is more intense orgasms. The PC muscle really refers to a group of muscles that, in addition to sexual function, are used in the waste process (urination and deficating). This dual use for the PC muscle makes exercising very easy. If you have ever tried to stop urinating in midstream, you have already discovered just where your PC muscle is. Don’t worry, you do not need to be urinating to complete this exercise. However, we suggest that you try to stop urinating in midstream at least once in order to experience the muscle sensation involved with the Kegel exercise. This will help you to locate and constrict your PC muscle.
One of my favorite corrective exercises to improve overhead mobility is the elbow wall walk. The benefits of this exercise are numerous, but there are three primary goals when you do it correctly. First, it activates the shoulders’ external rotators, which helps pull the head of the humerus into its ideal position. Second, the exercise activates the serratus anterior, a muscle that’s essential for upward rotation of the scapula. Third, the elbow wall walk teaches your client to reach overhead without extending the lumbar spine.
Vital biofeedback is received from the device and it involves sensory stimulation. Each time a contraction is performed, the exerciser moves upward and inward from half an inch to inches. When adding weight resistance to kegel exercise, the movement of the male kegel exerciser will be sensed by receptors in the anal mucosa, but in the surrounding muscle fibers, as well. The patient can also assess movement by hand. Each of these gentle sensory inputs will provide crucial feedback needed for knowing exactly where you stand with the workout and how much further to go with adding weight. The exercise routine will help you strengthen and retain. A right combination of quick contractions and longer, sustained ones will recruit all parts of the pelvic diaphragm and put all muscles to work.
