In most cases, they don’t!
Do you know why?
Because the pelvic floor doesn’t work in isolation. It works best as part of a coordinated team called “core!”
Your core includes pelvic floor muscles, the deep abdominals (tummy), gluts, back muscles and the diaphragm (breathing muscle). This team works best when the function of ALL its members is balanced.
So you can't just do kegels to keep your pelvic floor healthy. It's about contraction, relaxation, AND coordination of all those muscles to get your core working optimally for peeing, pooping, sex, and birth.
So, what Should You Do Instead of Kegels?
Focus on exercises that activated abdominals, gluts, and pelvic floor all at the same time!
