14 Jan Discreet Kegels and Hypopressives for your Commute
Everybody has to use it. Going to work, school, vacation, and the gym. We generally spend a lot of time sitting during the day. Most people are not particularly fond of sitting all the time. However, it is a necessary evil for most jobs and/or if we plan on going anywhere further than our feet would like to carry us.
We sit everywhere, in school, work, and even in most forms of public and private transportation. So why don’t we use all of this in-between time to do something good for our bodies and health?
Do you get bored just sitting all day?
Do you wish to do something more productive with the time you spend sitting?
Then this post is for you!
Car, bus, train, metro, plane, or even on the couch, here are a few easy and discreet Kegels and Hypopressives that can be done to improve your intimate health while sitting on different forms of transportation.
*Be warned these exercises are not recommended while you yourself are in the process of driving a vehicle.
With that being said…
Discreet Kegels and Hypopressives: How to
Sit upright with your back well supported on the seat of the bus (car, metro, plane, couch).
Align your knees to your hips and contract the muscles of your pelvic floor.
How do you do it?
Imagine that you want to close the vagina or prevent passing gas. This movement will cause the pelvic floor muscles to contract. Observe and feel what happens to your vagina during the contraction and during relaxation. The most important part is to feel the movement of these internal muscles.
Perform contraction of the pelvic floor muscles for 1 second and relax for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times.
“Hide the navel” Commute Hypopressive
Sit up straight with your back well supported on the seat of the bus.
Align your knees to your hips and place your hands below your navel.
Take a deep breath then expel the air completely, directing your navel towards your back and up (like you are pulling it into up into your ribs). Breathe out for 10 seconds. Repeat this 10 times.
Sit up straight with your back well supported in the seat.
Align your knees to your hips.
This exercise consists of contracting the pelvic floor muscles at 50% of capacity for 5 seconds.
This exercise may be harder for you to complete, so make sure you are proficient in doing the first Kegel exercise before performing this one.
See how your pelvic floor rises during the contraction and how it descends when you relax. Repeat it for 10 times.
So whether you are using public or private transportation, you can do pelvic floor exercises anywhere and in a discreet manner.
