I feel moderately experienced when it comes to doing kegels. I'm still trying to isolate PC from BC (gettin' close). I've noticed, as strength increases that it almost feels like my abdominal muscles are getting involved during a tight flex. I keep my diaphram relaxed (deep breaths) during contractions.
Is it possible that the contraction of the PC muscle is pulling on my abdominal muscles? I feel a pull on them, but I'm 99% certain that they are relaxed. These two muscles do attach at or near the pubis area. Any similar experiences??

I feel that too.
Actually, I can SEE my lower abs flexing and relaxing as I do my kegels. It becomes more apparent as my kegel muscles get tired.
I figured it was my abs working to compensate for the lack of strength in the kegelling."Know the rules well, so that you may properly break them" - The Dalai Lama

The lower abs to get some contraction from doing kegels but not much. If you are starting to use more of the lower abs to compensate, take a break from kegels allowing the pelvic muscles to rest, then continue again. You don't need that much PC exercise to strengthen and tone the pelvic muscles given that they are minute in size. I do them only 3 times a week and no more. I have a good EQ and no spasms because of this.Begin 7/25/2011:
