In brief: Try this

Picture inserting a straw into the vagina.
Imagine using the muscles around the straw to draw some fluid from a glass into the straw.

When you are emptying your bladder, try to slow or stop the flow of urine. When you can slow or stop the flow of urine, you are doing a kegel.
Dr. George Klauber
Both of the above are excellent. Additionally you can squeeze your buttocks togrther and thrust your oepvis forward and perform Dr,Garvey's or Higginbotham's procedure at same time. Another excellent exercise to strengthen pelvic muscles is to squeeze a tennis ball between you knees slowly 10 times, relax, repeat &repeat.

In brief: Kegel exercises

Kegel exercises work to strengthen pelvic muscles in order to maintain bladder control and reduce urinary incontinence.
The exercises themselves involve tightening pelvic muscles to stop urine flow briefly and relaxing the muscles to permit urine flow. Kegel exercises can be done everytime during urination.

There are physical therapists who can help patients do more succesful Kegel exercises. You should contact a local physical therapist and see if they have someone on staff who does "pelvic floor training".
Dr. Andrew Turrisi
It's also useful for patients that have had low-rectal resecctions and 'lack sensation' and need to re-learn continence.
