If you’ve ever used the search engines to look for more information on getting a harder and larger penis, there is no doubt you’ve come across the Kegel exercise.
What Can The Kegel Do For You?
Kegel exercises can help you to become much harder than you currently are. Well… that is assuming you haven’t been doing Kegel exercises for many years already.
Ask any woman and they’ll tell you that a hard penis is way more important to them than a bigger penis. And since penile hardness is a consequence of penile health, this once again goes to show that penis health comes first!
Kegel exercises focus mostly on hardness, but in the overall picture of penile exercises, they can also help you become larger. The Kegel exercise can be performed pretty much everywhere and at any time.
If you make the Kegel a part of your life and practice it consistently, then you can expect some of the following boons coming into your life sooner than you might expect:
- improved blood flow
- bigger erections
- rockhard erections
- longer erections
- better orgasms
- more orgasms
- an improved libido
- decreased urine dribble
With most penile exercises, you use your hand to somehow apply pressure and stress to your penis in an effort to make it grow over time. With the Kegel, you don’t have to use your hand at all.
The Kegel also doesn’t exercise the actual smooth muscle within the penis itself, Instead, it exercises the skeletal muscles behind the penis, called the pelvic floor muscles. These are also pretty important, as you’ll soon find out.
Where Did The Kegel Exercise Come From?
Kegel exercises were invented by Arnold Kegel way back in the 1940’s. He invented them for women, in order to tighten up their vaginal canal and have better sex.
It wasn’t long before men found out that the Kegel exercise benefited them as well. And while women only exercise one muscle when they are performing Kegels, men actually exercise a whole bunch of muscles.
Exercising all of these muscles, makes them much stronger. This will help increase blood flow into the penis. And as we all know, blood flow is where it’s all at.
The muscles a man exercises when performing Kegels are the bulbocavernosus, the ischiocavernosus and the pybococcygeus muscles.
I’m not going into detail with regards to each of these muscles at the moment. You can search for more information on the web if you’d like.
This group of muscles are basically your sex muscles, because they’re heavily involved in making your penis function the way it ought to. The more you train them, the strong they’ll become. The stronger they’ll become, the better they will get at performing their task.
So How Exactly Do You Perform Kegel Exercises?
For starters, you’re going to have to figure out which muscles are your pelvic floor muscles. If you can’t locate those, then good luck to you doing the Kegel!
However, locating those muscles is easier than you might think. You see, they are the muscles that you use to make yourself stop urinating. So basically, all you have to do is pay attention the next time you go to the bathroom to take a wizz.
Stop yourself while you are urinating and pay close attention to how exactly you are doing this. Remember what it feels like to contract those pelvic floor muscles.
You’ll be able to feel them contract when touching the smooth area between your ballsack and your anus, also called the perineum.
Every single contraction that you make with your pelvic floor muscles, is called a Kegel.
You can perform Kegel exercises in multiple ways. It’s not as easy as just starting to contract the pelvic floor muscles and doing it as often as you can. It’s better to follow a plan. Because failing to plan, is planning to fail!
You’ll need to perform exercises. Every exercise consists of 1 or multiple sets. Every set consists of 1 or multiple repetitions.
Here are a number of suggestions:
1. Kegel Exercise – Long Contractions
The first exercise, will have you try to contract your pelvic floor muscles for the short timespan of a mere 2 seconds. If you’ve successfully located your pelvic floor muscles, then you’ll be able to perform this exercise without too much trouble.
I suggest you contract your pelvic floor muscles 20 times for 2 seconds. This is called one set. I suggest you perform this set 3 times in a row with a few seconds in between. So when you start doing this exercise, you’ll do 3 x 20 repetitions.
You can do this multiple times a day if you want. Just make sure you give your pelvic muscles plenty of rest in between. Muscles grow stronger when they are resting, not when they are being worked out.
2. Kegel Exercise – Short Contractions
This exercise is just like the first one, except you are using shorter contractions.
When performing shorter contractions, the exercise will be less intensive and you’ll be able to perform more repetitions per set.
When going with short contractions, I suggest that you try to perform 40 repetitions instead of 20. You should also once again try to go for 3 sets. If this is simply too much of a strain, then simply go with 2 sets instead of 3.
3. Kegel Exercise – Extended Contractions
I’ve saved this exercise for last, because hardly any guy is able to do is when he is just starting out. It’s more than likely that you’ll have to be performing the 2 Kegel exercises above before you can even attempt this one.
This exercises will take many, many seconds per repetition. One repetition will be:
- slowly contracting the pelvic floor muscle
- holding on to the contraction of the pelvic floor muscle
- slowly releasing the contract of the pelvic floor muscle
This is very hard to do and it’s possible that it will take you some time to master. But once you do, you’ll have a gained a valuable new skill: to work out your sex muscles any time of the day without anybody seeing it.
Try to take as much time for each of these 3 steps as you can. You’ll most likely won’t be able to take much longer than 5 seconds to contract and release. You might, however, be able to hold the contraction for much longer.
You can make the whole repetition last as long as you like. Just so long as you don’t force yourself through ‘bad pain’. Professional bodybuilders also know when to quit. And so should you.
It goes without saying that, for an exercise where one single repetition is already pretty hard… you won’t be able to do that many repetitions per set.
I suggest you don’t do more than 4 repetitions per set. Once again, I recommend no more than 3 sets.
Follow A Plan!
If you are not comfortable with any of the exercise plans suggested above, then you can also come up with your own exercise plan. There is always room for experimentation, so you are free to shuffle around the number of exercises, sets and repetitions you perform.
To each his own!
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you’ve got a plan and make sure you actually follow your own plan!
