Performance Enhancement Exercises Men Can Do At Home

Kegel exercises are not only beneficial for women— which is a common misconception. In truth, Kegels and reverse Kegels, aka pelvic floor exercises, strengthen and condition the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs) for men. The PFMs consist of a muscle network located in the pelvic and pubic regions and have a direct effect on sexual function and performance. Men can reap amazing benefits from the Kegel and experience improvement in the following conditions:

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Kegels can increase circulation in the pelvic area and penile muscles that play a major role in a healthy erection. With training and practice, men can learn to control blood flow, keeping it in the penis. This will enable longer lasting erections.

Premature Ejaculation (PE)
Control is an important element in premature ejaculation. Strengthening and conditioning PFMs allows better control. Being able to employ the start, stop, and squeeze method helps avoid climaxing before ready.

Ejaculatory Force/Orgasms
Weak or unsatisfactory orgasms can be related to having weak PFMs. Stronger muscles equal more force and power during the emission of semen. This means more intense orgasms, and with proper training, the ability to achieve back to back orgasms. Multiple male orgasms do exist!

Performing Kegel exercises while standing can be particularly helpful. Try tightening the pelvic floor muscles:

  • Before walking
  • Before sneezing/coughing
  • When moving from sitting to standing
