1. Insert either the single-weighted ball (advised for beginners) or the double-weighted ball inside your vagina, much like you would insert a tampon.
2. Once inside, lift for 2-10 seconds (depending on your strength), then relax down. The lifting motion is much like holding in wind or wee: lift upwards towards your head, squeeze, then make sure you relax down to where you came from.
3. Repeat 10-12 times.
4. Have a break for a couple of minutes, then repeat 3 times.
5. To remove, relax your pelvic floor and gently pull the string to slide out the Kegel Ball.
We recommend washing your AAH Kegel Balls before use.
During Your Workout:
The recommended time your AAH Kegel Balls should stay inside is for the duration of your training session. The maximum time is 15 minutes.
Warm soapy water is the best way to wash your AAH Kegel Balls! Or, for a thorough cleanse, wash in boiling water. And remember to store in a clean, dry place until further use.
