Reverse kegels don't use the same muscles as kegels
At least I am starting not to think so…Let’s discuss this…Someone stated in my “Reverse kegels as excersize” thread that doing reverse kegels are pointless because all you are doing is relaxing the BC muscle and that wont make it any stronger…This got me thinking. Muscles can do one thing and one thing only. Contract. Go here if you want to see how muscles work: http://health.howstuffworks.com/muscle2.htm.
If they can only contract, then we definently know that the BC muscle is the muscle contracted when you kegel (stop piss)…When you are not pissing at all and just doing someting else, it is in it’s relaxed state (like right now as you read this screen). When you actually tell your body to piss and expel urine, you MUST be telling it to contract some OTHER muscle…It can’t be the BC if its contraction function is to cut off urine. Unfortunently, I do not know that much about penis physiology so I cannot tell you which muscle performs this function, but I do think that since a muscle can ONLY contract, we cannot be using the same muscle in both a reguler kegel and a reverse kegel.
