This Simple Exercise Targets The Pelvic Floor Muscles (Nope, Not A Kegel)

In a TikTok video, Jeffrey-Thomas explains that the pelvic floor muscles need to relax for bowel and bladder emptying, childbirth, tampon insertion, pelvic exams, and more.

More generally, learning to release tension in the pelvic floor can “have a positive effect on your core strength, be a great tool to practice mindfulness, and even help get your body out of a panic state when times are difficult,” corrective exercise specialist Helen Phelan previously told mbg.

So, as someone who struggles to remove her menstrual cup every now and again, let’s just say, this move will come in handy.
