As you most certainly realized already, these exercises were named after the American gynecologist Arnold Kegel, PHD in medicine, who discovered their effectiveness in the 50ís.
He also discovered that the women whose pelvic muscles were weakened could attain notable results after a while of practice.
These women not only recovered more easily after giving birth, but many of them who had had lacks in controlling their sphincters were cured completely.
The standard technique of practice established by dr. Kegel is designed mainly for those who already have a physical problem, such as a failing organ, or urinary incontinence, or for the women whose pelvic muscles were already very strained by pregnancy.
However, the most important discovery was the proof that after strengthening these muscles the women had more intense orgasms and enjoyed the erotic act more than previously.
In some cases, women of 50 years who had never had an orgasm to that age, finally found out what it was and continued to enjoy the feeling years after that.
The Kegel exercises act on certain pelvic muscles. These muscles form a kind of elastic hammock beneath the pelvis, stretching from the frontal part of the pelvic bone to the anus.
They basically sustain and support all the organs from the inferior part of the torso in their correct positions, opposing to the gravity. As you can imagine, when these muscles are heavy and flask, they also lead to all the rest of the organs to come down.
Consequently, dr. Kegel designed a rudimentary technique for strengthening these muscles. These exercises are a series of repeated contractions, which are usually performed while lying down or sitting.
The clinical tests indicate that they improve beyond any doubt the muscular tonus and resistance. The gynecologists all agree that the strengthening of these muscles is vital, even from a very early age.
Various studies have indicated that a surprisingly significant percent of women have their pelvic muscles weakened to various degrees, without being aware of this thing.
Dr. Kegelís clinical observations indicate the fact that 30 up to 40 percent of the women have malfunctions of the perineum or pelvic muscles. This is not a surprising fact, considering that these muscles are not working as much as they should.
In the past, they were used more due to the squatting position when urinating, but today the toilet seats eliminated this.
The pelvic muscles are quite similar to other muscles, such as the arm muscles, or the abdominal muscles. Unlike the cardiac muscle, for instance, which is an "involuntary" muscle, the pelvic muscles can be easily contracted at will.
This is why they can grow stronger as a result of repeated contractions, as any other muscle of the body.
If the stimulus is powerful enough, they will also become larger, which will in its turn have a definite impact on their strength. The development of new muscular fibers will bring an increase in the blood flow and in the muscular tonus.
One of the most important principles in training oneís sexual muscles is to be specific. This means that in order to develop certain muscular functions, the muscles need to perform certain types of exercises, according to their type of activity.
If they are trained differently, there can be some benefits, but the body will not acquire the necessary effects to help you function at the optimum level.
In fewer words, in order to be able to play tennis you need to practice playing tennis. However, although the tennis makes you more fit working on the same muscles, playing tennis will not make you a better dancer.
For this you should simply dance. Naturally, you will not train for marathon swimming kilometers, and expecting that after this you will be able to run.
You will probably improve your resistance and overall vigor, but you may not gain the coordination of the movements required for running long distances.
The same principle is rigorously applied to the Kegel exercises as well. You may perform the Kegel exercises and then note an improvement in your sexual activity.
