Can kegel exercises help my erection?
When it’s time to work out, you’ve got routines for everything. You’ve got exercises for your abs, your core, and your delts, but what about your erection? Yes, kegel exercises can help you to strengthen vital pelvic muscles, helping you to achieve better, strong erection. If you struggle with erectile dysfunction, these exercises could even help to bring your erection back to life.
Kegel exercises are designed to strengthen your pelvic floor. These exercises primarily tone your bulbocavernosus muscle. This pelvic muscle is responsible for three important jobs: it allows blood to flow to the penis during erection, it pumps semen during ejaculation, and it helps to empty the urethra after urination. By building this vital muscle, you can improve your erection, fight premature ejaculation, and combat urinary incontinence.
Kegel exercises are done by squeezing and relaxing your pelvic muscles. To determine what muscles you will be working on, stop your stream in the middle of urination. Feel those clenching muscles in your groin? Those are the muscles your kegel exercises will be targeting.
To perform a rep of kegel exercises, squeeze this muscle group, hold it for 5 seconds, and then relax. When just starting out, repeat this process 10 to 20 times, and do it once a day. As it gets easier, do them two to three times a day. As you get better at kegels, you’ll find you can do them just about anywhere. Incorporate this exercise into your daily routine, and you could see your erection return to it’s former glory.
