I think it depends on the man and the goal. If you are fairly continent now, then waiting will probably be good, as it helps restretch your bladder and give the remaining muscle something to work against, providing feedback to you and your brain. If you leak then going as soon as the urge hits is probably best. Just my opinion, though. Personally, I try to wait as long as possible during the day, but go at night each time I waken from sleep, just to be safe.
