Kegels and Glass Eggs 101
Glass eggs were designed to enhance kegel exercises by adding weight and resistance. To begin using a glass egg, insert her into your vagina with the larger end going in first. Once the egg is in place, you can begin using her!
Kegels: The practice of contracting and releasing your pelvic floor muscles. Properly performed kegels can be tricky, make sure you are only contracting your pelvic muscles not your butt, abs or thighs. Once you have identified the pelvic floor muscles your ready to start kegeling!
The Perfect Kegel: Doing your kegels correctly is vital when working with your egg. You first want to make sure you are contracting the correct muscles, to do so, contract your pelvic muscles without flexing your abdomen, thighs or butt. Your pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock that hold all your womb parts up and in place. If you are having a hard time trying to finding your kegel muscles, try laying on your back or try using the restroom and stopping your urine midstream. Make sure not to hold your breath, you should be able to breathe through your contractions.
- The basic: Start by contracting and hold for 5 seconds then relax. Once you are able to hold for 5 seconds try longer intervals of 10-15 seconds. Repeat contractions for 5 minutes a session.
- The quickie: Contract and hold for 1 second then relax. Continue the 1 second intervals for 5 minute sessions.
- Combine the the basic and quickie for an advanced 5-10 minute workout.
*Make sure to have your egg in for the optimal workout!
Kegels can be performed standing up, sitting or lying down.
If you are a beginner and your egg won't stay in, try lying down on your back while you do your work out. Once you have trained and strengthened your muscles try standing up during kegel exercises.
Squat position: Stand with you legs shoulder width apart, bend your knees and squat. Hold the squat and begin kegels; squeeze and release.
Lunge position: Stand with on leg in front of the other and bend your knees in a lunge position. Hold the lunge and begin kegels: Squeeze and release.
