Kegel exercise is widely known practice among women around the globe. It was first introduced by a gynecologist named Dr. Arnold Kegel, and was designed to enhance bladder functioning and to improve the pelvic wall.

Doing this exercise also increases the blood flow to the penis, prevents incontinence and maintain the prostate gland in excellent shape.
