Can someone set me straight on the best method for doing Kegels? City of Hope's instructions (as well as others I've found on the net) say to always empty your bladder first, then do the 10 reps of 10 seconds each, three times per day. Here's a link to an example.
But I've also read that the exercises should be done while urinating by stopping and starting the flow. Is that just an adjunct exercise or is that a way of doing Kegels too?
Also, should the exercise contractions be done gently or with everything I've got? I don't want to overdo it.
