- Repeat this action for up to 8-12 repetitions holding each exercise for up to 10 seconds at a time

How to Progress Pelvic Floor Strengthening:
When you can comfortably complete your exercises with the unweighted Pelvix, simply unscrew the body of the exerciser and start to add weight incrementally as follows:
1: Without weighted ball – 17g
2: Small 15mm ball – 26.2g
3: Medium 18mm ball – 34.4g
4: Large 22mm ball – 51.5g
5: Pelvix + 15mm small + 22mm large balls – 60.7g
When you can perform the recommended number of exercises with ease using a particular weight you are ready to progress to the next weight.
Progress within your range of personal comfort to provide additional challenge with added resistance to promote pelvic floor strengthening.
