Exercise and Quality of Life
When it comes to exercise, many of us sigh and have good intentions. We know it’s important, now more than ever. As we age, we lose muscle mass and when prostate function starts to deteriorate, we know it’s time to get back out there and establish a routine we can stick with.
Whether it’s running, walking, swimming, biking, or whatever, get some cardio into your life. As little as 30 minutes a day will do wonders. Breaking it up into three 10-minute segments will also work, according to the folks at Harvard Medical School.
None of us want to talk about prostate issues, but here we are doing our research. And what research is telling is that Kegels, exercises women have been doing for years is now something men should be doing as well. Apparently, Kegels aren’t just a sexercise for women, they work the pelvic floor muscles, which helps with incontinence and bowel control, too.
And who knew that men can reap similar benefits, like bladder and bowel control, and could improve sexual performance, according to the Mayo Clinic. We too have pelvic floor muscles that lose their muscle mass, like other parts of our body. But, three sets of 10 Kegels, three times a day is what is recommended. The goal is to build up the muscles of the pelvic floor. When men do Kegels, they can help with dribbling issues and support normal prostate function, too.
