Does it matter how long you hold your kegels?

Does it matter how long you hold your kegels?

Is it benificial to hold your kegels for longer periods of time, i.e. 10 seconds or longer per kegel as apposed to 3-5 seconds per kegel? The reason why I ask this is as follows:

As far as I know when doing weight-lifting you have two basic options. Either you lift fast for lots of reps (8-12) per set to stimulate muscle growth or you lift slowly with fewer reps (5 or less) to focus more on muscle strength. Big muscles will not always mean that the potential strength of that muscle is fully utilised. Of course there are many other factors at play here, like weight and rest between sets but that’s not the point right now.

When we are doing kegels we do it to make the PC-muscle stronger. We want to see increased strength of the muscle, which in turn leads to harder erections. We don’t wan’t the muscle to increase in size, but in strength. So if the above is true then wouldn’t it make sense to do fewer kegels per day, but with a longer hold (and a hard contraction), instead of doing lots of kegels while only contracting for a short period?

For example: 75 10-second hold kegels per day instead of 150 5-second hold kegels per day.

There are some of you who hold them for even longer periods of time. Do you feel that this is more benificial to your erection strength?

I would like to hear some opinions about this. :)


My Stats:

THEN: BPEL: 5.39 inch || EG Base: 4.33 inch || BPFL: 3.23 inch || EG Mid: 4.1 inch

NOW: BPEL: 5.59 inch || EG Base: 4.33 inch || BPFL: 3.23 inch || EG Mid: 4.1 inch

I always thought more reps meant more strength.

Less reps with more weight means more strength.

True, but, as far as I know, you will get the best results if you don’t lift too fast either. But hey, lets not turn this into a weight-lifting thread. I’m just curious wether holding your kegels for longer periods of time makes a positive difference or not. :)

I’ve always thought that having big, strong and well trained pelvic floor muscles would give my cock better stability and overall strength. So far there isn’t enough research or evidence to support or disclaim this and I’m not far enough through my time in PE to truly notice a major difference. Maybe some of us would like to commit ourselves to a long term trial and see what kind of benefits we receive? Might be difficult considering everyone is physiologically different.


I'm a big fan of 50 Cent, or as we call him in Zimbabwe, four hundred million dollars.

The pelvic muscle is the muscle used in kegels. This muscle does benefit from resistance training as it is a skeletal muscle. With skeletal muscles basic weight lifting principals apply. So in order to answer your question, you first have to determine what type of muscle you feel would be better for you. So as someone stated previously, if you believe that more reps and less weight is more beneficial for what you desire then go for it. If you believe that less reps and more weight is the way to go then go that route.


Then 01/15/08 EBPL: 6.25 EG 5.10 Now 10/05/09 EBPL 7.75 EG 5.25 Girth work for 103 days.

New Short Term Goal: EBPL 8.0 EG 5.5 Lifetime goal 9x6.5 PE log and journal

Why not do both? Sometimes long holds, sometimes short holds? Sometimes erect (with hand or towel pushing down as resistance) and sometimes flaccid? etc etc

DB,
Kegel is not just for erection quality, but also for ejaculation control.
The point is to make the muscle stronger. In order to see some good results, I think one must pass at least 150x5 sec. limit. That makes about 15 minutes of kegels/day. And by “good results” I mean full control over ejaculation. No worries whatsoever.

So you can think about it in term of minutes/day, too. Of course, the level of the contraction is also important. It can vary. I usually prefer starting lighter, but in the end it becomes extreme, with nearly all my body involved. You can put massive power over the PC muscle area this way.


Start: 6.9 BPEL x 4.9 (17,5 x 12,5 cm)

Now: 7.7 BPEL x 5.7 (19,5 x 14,5 cm)

I have a question about Kegel, I just don’t seem to be able to hold it for more then 2 secs or so, I mean I do some kind of pressure, but when I release it is like I released nothing, and like I hold-ed nothing.

Is there a special position you need to be in in order to hold it for longer period of time?

When the muscles are weak it is hard to isolate them. Your stomach or legs can tense up and also be included in the “hold”. As you get stronger, it becomes easier to isolate the right muscles and to hold them for a very long time.

In short, if you can only hold for 2 secs, you need to do more kegel exercises. There is no special position required. But if you are unsure if you are doing them properly there is three ways to test it.

1 - Become erect. When you kegel the penis should stand upright. If you have poor erection quality or your penis doesn’t go to a high upright angle, put your hand or a towel over it. Hold the kegel and feel resistance against the towel or hand.

2 - When flaccid, stretch out your penis. Kegel and the penis should tug back towards your stomach.

3 - When peeing, hold the kegel and the pee will stop coming out. You should be able to hold this longer then 2 seconds? Release and the pee will come out again, but I wouldn’t do this if you are busting to go. It can’t be good for the bladder.

This method makes sense, since we have voluntary control over the muscle, it should be skeletal, and not smooth. I’ve never thought of that!

If we really want to get go into detail, you should do both methods so you keep your body guessing!

My Kegels Long And Hard

I was doing the short version recently but wasn’t getting what I first remember I use to get years ago. It could have been due to age and eating bad and smoking and drinking and such . . Not to mention it was over ten years ago. I read a sex self help book for couples. It first told me about kegels. . And it said that I should work up to long hard squeezes as much as I can stand and do per day. Mon- Friday I did them and then got to the long hard squeezes. Saturday and Sunday I rested. In exactly two weeks I had extremely hard erections!! Even though I was sexually unusual as I never had orgasms vaginally and needed oral or manual stimulation to bring me to orgasm, this was incredible and extremely pleasureful to me. I had to try my erections out on an unsuspecting female. I met one and soon was trying out my steel on her… What I found was that she and I were moaning up somethings terrible. . And I found that I was now having orgasms vaginally!! And orgasms something powerful too!! We had two back to back extensive sessions that day… She was amazed and so was I as she had not known that I was doing the kegels.

Today at this very date I have struggled to get back to the powerful kegels I once did. And last night I did. I have been doing the short kegels and nothing was happening much. And I got upset about it and squeezed really hard and felt a very pleasurable feeling down there. Slightly achy but it felt really good. So I kept doing it for about 20 minutes. I notice that I have to be sitting on a chair a certain way to get the right squeeze. It is close to the edge of my chair in my home office. The chair can’t be to low to the ground either. It can’t be tilted in a recline either. Anyway this morning I woke up and drifted between being awake and asleep. Started to think about sex and I could feel that feeling again as I started to grow. I know this is better for me . . The long hard squeezes than the short squeezes. Soon I will be back to super steel. . It will become bothersome as I may get erections at anytime and they will be rock hard and I have a nice size. So at work this won’t be cool. And I stopped back in the day because my erections were driving me crazy. Have to jack off like 4 times a night every night. Waking me up from my sleep.

I was tired at work allot because of it. But I am going back to it.

I have asked a lot of people about this, and the experts of Thunder’s disagree with me. Are we trying to build strength or stamina? Also, are kegels an isometric exercise?

The experts I have asked said that a 3 second kegel is enough to add both strength and stamina. From an isometric standpoint, you are going to want to hold at least 7 seconds. You can also add resistance to a kegel by pulling on your penis, as this will require more strength in the muscle to contract your penis.

HI

I think Kegels are aces. I used to be an early squirter, but now I can hold back for longer and this makes the climax far more intense.

Oh, about the question, I don’t know. lol
