It is called intimate gymnastics and was devised by a woman for women.
Invisible exercises, you can do anywhere!
Before explaining what intimate gymnastics is, I would like to underline an important aspect: you can do many of its exercises anywhere because they are invisible exercises. So you can practice them while doing something else, for example, you are watching television or you are stopped in the car at traffic lights.
Now I’ll explain why.
Intimate gymnastics is a gymnastics that moves an internal musculature that is fundamental for female well-being: the pelvic floor.
The pelvic floor musculature extends from the pubis to the coccyx and surrounds the opening of the vagina, urethra, and rectum. It forms a real floor that forms the basis of the pelvis and offers support to fundamental organs such as the uterus, bladder, and vagina.
If your pelvic muscles are in a bad state, or the muscles are not very toned, there can be many health problems and mainly concern gynecological and urinary tract disorders. But not only.
Aesthetics are also involved: an undertone pelvic floor is one cause of a prominent abdomen.
The benefits of intimate gymnastics
Here are the benefits you can get. Gymnastics helps you to:
- better deal with various gynecological disorders such as candida, vaginitis, leucorrhoea, i.e. vaginal discharge
- fight menstrual pain
- experience menopause better and resolve ailments such as vaginal dryness and hot flashes
- improve sexual life, increasing pleasure and solving problems such as vaginismus and dyspareunia, i.e. pains during intercourse
- coping with urinary incontinence, with difficulty in holding back the urge to urinate, not only in old age but also after childbirth
- fight the prolapse of the uterus, bladder, and rectum
- have a peaceful pregnancy and birth and a good postpartum recovery
- get a toned abdomen and a harmonious body
- achieve a better perception of your femininity
A test to find out the state of your pelvic floor
And now a simple test that gives you the first information about your pelvic musculature. The best position to perform this test is lying down, with the legs flexed and slightly apart.
Now try to contract the pelvic floor muscles by imagining you are holding something in your vagina, for example, a tampon.
This first contraction may not be completely correct and lead you to tighten even muscles not directly connected to the pelvic floor, for example, the abdominals or thigh muscles. Don’t worry at this stage of the investigation. The important thing is to become aware of these muscles and feel if you are able to contact them, and for how long.
Now start counting, making continuous contractions, imagining alternately squeezing, and letting go of something in the vagina.
How many contractions were you able to do?
A toned pelvic floor should be able to do 50 to 100 in a short time. Initially, however, the contractions performed with a good intensity could be only 10 or 15, but even less. Do not worry. Intimate gymnastics exercises will soon be able to bring you excellent results.
This simple test is itself a reactivation of the pelvic floor. Practicing it 2 or 3 times a day can improve the tone of your muscles.
