I admit that I giggled a little bit when this Elvie Kegel & Pelvic Floor Exercise Tracker grabbed my attention at the NORDSTROM website. From all I know, kegel exercises are free and can be done anyone with no one being the wiser so I was surprised there was something you can buy to help with kegel exercises.
But seeing this tracker reminded me how beneficial kegel exercises are and not just to “tighten” you up but are excellent for gynecological health and well-being. I admit that I have been lax with my kegel exercises and can’t really remember the last time I did them and even when I did them, I wasn’t that commited so seeing this tracker definitely gave me pause.
Benefit Of kegel exercises
Kegel exercises are designed to strengthen and tone the PC (pubococcygeus) muscle which is located between the vaginal and anal area. Performing specific exercises helps tone the pelvis leading to better circulation (blood and nutrients) and promoting hormone balance. Hormone imbalance can cause many gynecological issues so doing everything you can to keep your hormones balanced is important for women concerned about gynecological health. These exercises can help.
Other benefits of kegel exercises include preventing incontinence, reducing congestion in the pelvic area, helping with natural childbirth, etc. If you need tips on how and when (anywhere really even while typing up this post!), for how long, etc, click here.
