Q: What can I do to work on my PC muscles?  

A: Most people start worrying about their pelvic floor after they have kids and suddenly laughing is no joking matter.  

We need to start with an understanding of your anatomy.  The PC, or pubococcygeus, muscle is part of a network of muscles and ligaments that support your lower organs.  For women it is party of the connective tissue that supports the vagina, uterus, bladder and rectum.  It pretty much creates a hammock!

Working your PC muscles (often referred to as doing your kegels) is really quite simple.  Though there are plenty of toys and devices to help and make "working out" more fun, you don't actually need anything.  

You can check out this link for a great how-to guide from the Mayo Clinic.  Basically its as simple as stopping urination midstream.  Once you can do that you're practically there.  Even when you're not peeing, you can clench those muscles and hold them for five seconds and release.  Repeat this 3-5 times.  

If toys are more your thing, here a few great options that you can use anytime (yes, even at work!)
