Best Workouts For Your Sex Life
Best Workouts For Your Sex Life

You probably know that exercising and being in good shape lead to better sex…and more of it!

Here from YourTango then are the top five workouts to improve your sex life, and why they work:

For increased arousal, do cardio.  Things like running and cycling help increase blood flow…including blood flow in the baby-making zone…which is especially important for older MEN.  It’s crucial for women, too, and a recent study found that 20 minutes of cycling led to a 170% increase in below-the-belt circulation for some women. 

To make the end result of sex more intense, do yoga.  It’s good because it helps strengthen your pelvic muscles, also called Kegels which guys have too.  Specifically, yoga moves that include warrior poses and lunges work best.

If you want to get into crazy positions, do Pilates.  It helps with flexibility in your hips, abs, back, and glutes plus it helps with balance.

To make the missionary position easier, do push-ups.  They work your chest and triceps, so it’s easier to hold yourself up for an extended period of time.

To up your endurance, try high-intensity interval training.  Get on a bike or a treadmill, and go as hard as you can for 30 to 60 seconds then slow down to a gentle pace for a minute or two, and repeat the process up to 10 times.  Doing that once or twice a week will up your staying power in the sack, and make the process less exhausting in general.

Finally…a GOOD reason to go to the gym!  See you there!
