Like any muscle in your body, they need to be exercised to stay strong and functional. Tense these muscles for five to ten seconds, then relax for ten seconds repeating this cycle ten times. Perform this routine three to five times per day and you should notice a difference in a matter of weeks. If you find the exercises difficult to perform or are curious to see how you are improving, there are several implements that can be purchased from instruments that are inserted and squeezed to weighted balls that are said to improve muscle tone.
