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. :)
