Men can suffer from two sexual related problems that can drive them into a deep depression: erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. These two conditions often affect one’s self-confidence and self-esteem, but not for long if you’re willing to do something about it. One of the solutions for this problem: *Kegel exercises*.
*What is Kegel Exercise*
*Kegel exercise* or strengthening the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle can help men deal with erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. So, if you are done with all the pills, penis extenders, and pumps, it is time to try this.
Kegel exercises (named after Dr. Arnold Kegel) are exercises of the pubococcygeus muscle discovered and used by the Taoists in China. The exercises can improve both physical and spiritual aspects of your life, by strengthening various muscles in order to _promote health_increase longevity_ and enjoy _better sex._.
These exercises are meant to strengthen the pubococcygeus muscles by clenching and unclenching in order to help you maintain *control of your erection* and ejaculations, increase blood flow to the penis for a stronger erection and keep your prostate healthy. You can identify your PC muscle by making your penis jump with your muscles and see which one tenses. This muscle is the one that can help you stop urinating whenever you want to, it is located between the scrotum and the anus and can help you become a great lover by exercising it.
To practice Kegel exercise, you first need to determine where your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle is. To find this muscle, try to stop or slow pee mid-flow while you are urinating hold for 3 seconds. If you successfully do this, then you just locate your PC muscle. The muscle you use in doing so is your PC muscle. When you do this, remember not to tense your legs, abdomen or butt cheek muscles.
For those struggling, this muscle is the same muscle you use when you tighten your anus. If you are able to locate it, then you are now ready to Kegel.
*What Are Pelvic Floor Muscles?*
The pelvic floor muscles are actually muscle networks that support your bladder and help you control your urine flow. There are 3 pelvic muscles:
1. Pubococcygeus. Your pelvic floor muscle is the main muscle and it is also known as the pubococcygeus (pu-bo-kak-sij-eus) or PC muscle. These support your rectum and bladder to help you control the flow of your urine.
2. Sphincter muscles. These muscles help you open and close the urethra, which is a tube that drains urine from the bladder.
3. Bladder. Your bladder is a balloon shape muscle and helps hold your urine.
*How To Do A Kegel Exercise? *
After you’ve located your pelvic floor muscles, you can now start with the Kegel exercises. You can follow these basic steps:
1. Hold and tighten your pelvic floor muscles for around 3- 5 seconds.
You can start counting with this method: one-one thousand, two-two thousand, three-three thousand, four-four thousand, five-five thousand. This count is around a 5-second squeeze hold.
2. If you can’t hold with 5 seconds, just hold the contraction for as long as you can. Build it up until you can hold the 5-second count.
3. You should plan on working on ten to twenty Kegel exercises per session. Do it 3 to 4 sessions every day.
4. When you tighten your pelvic floor muscles, squeeze your anus muscles. Do it as if you’re holding your bowel.
5. Always relax your pelvic floor muscles after every hold.
6. Build up your Kegels until you can hold it for 10 seconds.
*Tips in Doing Kegel Exercises*
Most men can only contract their PC muscle for a couple of seconds, some may not even hold it.
That is okay, that’s why you need to exercise it until you can fully control it.
Also, it’s necessary to record how long you are able to hold the Kegel, so you can measure your progress.
When you perform this exercise, you should feel or see your testicles lift.
This could take time but with regular practice, you will notice an improvement in your pelvic floor muscle strength in just 4 to 6 weeks.
*Reminders When You Do Kegel Exercises*
* Do not gasp or don’t hold your breathing.
* Do not push down. Make sure to squeeze muscles together tight.
* Imagine you’re trying to lift up the pelvic floor muscles.

*Kegel Exercise Routines*
For men considering how often should they exercise their PC muscles, I suggest that you make it part of your daily routine.
Here are some recommendations to get you started with Kegeling for better sexual health.
In your first few weeks, do 50 Kegels every other day. Remember that you have to contract the muscles for one to five seconds, depending on the strength of your PC muscle.
However, for beginners, you might struggle to last longer than a second or two but don’t take this hard. This is normal for beginners. Remember that as you exercise your PC muscle it will become stronger and you can last longer.
