Then this morning, I ran across this article on Facebook: "Stop Doing Kegels: Real Pelvic Floor Advice For Women (and Men)." Although I did read the article (it was mostly about pregnancy) I didn’t really need to. They had me at stop doing Kegels, and the best part of the article was this quote by Katy Bowman, whose research influenced the article:
"Tighter does not equal stronger. It’s just tighter.”
See, even as a tween, I knew Kegels weren't the way to make me stronger.
Moral of the story? Put away your vaginal weights, ladies, because apparently doing squats is really all you need to do to strengthen up your vagina errr pelvic floor. Plus, you'll have really strong legs!
But ssshhh, don’t tell anyone!
