Squeezing your butt cheeks together is a common exercise that can tighten and restrict those muscles which keep urine contained in your bladder. This will ensure that is no leakage of urine from the bladder. The exercise is a scientifically proven one called Kegels exercises or pelvic floor exercises. It strengthens the pelvic floor muscles to support the bladder, uterus, small intestine, and rectum. It keeps muscles fit and prevents conditions like uncontrollable farting, incontinence, leakage and feces. Kegels can be done in any position.
