As the temperature slowly begins to creep up, it starts to dawn on us that summertime is arriving. It’s normally around now that your panic about achieving a ‘beach body’ sets in. But whether you want to look good in a swimsuit, or feel good and healthy – exercise is key.
You’ve done the crunches, sweated in squats and god, please don’t remind us of the plank. But there’s vital muscles that you may be forgetting when getting summer-ready.
The pelvic floor muscles
Your pelvic floor muscles need exercise just like every other muscle in your body. And like your biceps for example, the harder you work, the stronger they’ll get.
These pelvic floor muscles do a lot of hard work that you may not even notice. They support ALL of your pelvic organs, control your bladder and bowel, and can even increase intimate sensations to say the least.
How can you achieve a stronger pelvic floor?
You’ve probably heard of ‘Kegels’, but you may not necessarily know how to do them. You can perform a Kegel when you contract your pelvic floor muscles correctly. But, this isn’t as easy as it sounds. 1 in 2 women perform a Kegel exercise incorrectly, pushing down on their pelvic floors instead of pulling upwards.
Instead, aim to squeeze the muscles around your anus and vagina and pull upwards to your stomach. You can learn more about doing manual Kegel exercises here. Unfortunately, some women are unable to perform an effective contraction – but that’s where Kegel8 comes in.
The Kegel8 Ultra 20 Electronic Pelvic Toner can do all of the hard work for you. It uses electrical stimulation to automatically exercise your pelvic floor for you, all with the push of a button. ‘Electrical stimulation’ may sound scary – but it’s not dangerous in the slightest. In fact, your body is full of electrical currents and signals! Kegel8 toners utilise this and work your pelvic floor using the same method.
What are the benefits of Kegel exercises?
Strengthening your pelvic floor helps to keep your body healthy and strong. It also helps to:
- Reduce little leaks and incontinence
- Manage and avoid a pelvic organ prolapse
- Ease childbirth
- Improve orgasms and erections
Reviews for the Kegel8 Ultra 20 Electronic Pelvic Toner
Mags - Fantastic Product!
"I have been suffering with vulvodynia for 2 years and have tried everything on an endless list of self help. I am currently on medication which makes me tired and doesn't help very much. One of the things on the list was weak pelvic floor so after research I found the Kegel8 Ultra 20. I am happy to say after using the Kegel for just 4 weeks I have been symptom free for 7 days. ”
Caz - Excellent!
"I’m extremely impressed with this machine. After trying pelvic floor exercises for a year, with disappointing results, I decided to splash out on a Kegel8. I have only been using the device for a month but have seen a definite improvement already. I was mortified and embarrassed when my pelvic floor was weakened and wish I’d have known about Kegel8 at the beginning. I’m now hopeful that my problems will be reversed "
