Women work out for different reasons. Some ladies are doing endless crunches just to get Anne Curtis's abs. Others are just trying to get a booty. But when it comes to fitness, we all have one thing in common: We forget about the pelvic floor! What we don't realize is that a strong pelvic floor is crucial for several body functions. It affects the vagina, bladder, and rectum.
When the pelvic floor is weak, "you can end up with urinary or fecal incontinence (loss of control) and something called pelvic organ prolapse, which is basically when your pelvic organs slip out of place and create a bulge in the vagina." Though these problems materialize when we're older or right after we give birth, we should take preventative measures now.
So how exactly do you work out your vagina? It's all about Kegel exercises! If you're not sure what a Kegel exercise is, let us paint a picture: While you're peeing, try stopping your pee. That movement is a Kegel exercise. But instead of just letting it go right after, squeeze and hold for five seconds. Do this repeatedly: hold and release.
See? Not only is it simple, but you can do it anywhere and anytime! Start flexing, ladies!
