Exercise for “love muscles”

Health experts say people have some muscles that hardly ever are used—except during sex. And there are specific execises to help those muscles. This story offers clinical explanations for adults of all ages interested in improving their sex life.

Scottsdale sex therapist Michele Clarkson says the key muscles involved in sex are located in the lower abdomen: the pubo coccygeus or “PC” muscles, sometimes referred to as the “love muscles”. She says one of the best exercises for those muscles—in both men and women—was developed by Dr. Arnold Kegel.

Chris and Ann Frederick are Tempe fitness trainers who developed a program of exercises and stretches that emphasize flexibility. Some of their clients doing exercises for the pelvic area have told the Fredericks that they’ve noticed an unintended fringe benefit: “They enjoyed their sex more.”

The Fredericks demonstrate some of those exercises in a web video. Their website also has printable instructions.
