Five Male Exercises for Better Sex
Keen to supercharge your sex life, but not quite so keen on drugs? Fair enough. If you’re after good natural ways to boost your bedroom game though, these five exercises for men may be just what you’re looking for!
Better Sex Exercise #1 – Kegels
No doubt you’ve come across Kegels several times before, but perhaps written them off as too outlandish or bizarre. This reputation however is undeserved. Kegel exercises are a very simple and effective way to improve both endurance and control.
Named after LA doctor Arnold Kegel, these exercises involve toning the pubococcygeus (PC) muscles, initially by starting and stopping urinating mid-stream. After practising this way for a while, the PC muscles should become strong enough to be squeezed and trained any time anywhere—including during sex, where they can be used to delay orgasm.
Better Sex Exercise #2 – Weights and Resistance Training
This one may come as more of a surprise. How does pumping iron actually help improve sexual performance?
In a nutshell, doing weights and resistance training promotes your body’s natural production of testosterone, testosterone being a hormone vital for male sex drive amongst many other things.
Even a simple daily routine of push-ups, sit-ups and crunches may be enough to make a big difference to your sex life!
Better Sex Exercise #3 – Swimming
Swimming? Yep. Believe it or not, a Harvard study of 160 male and female swimmers in their sixties found they had sex lives comparable to that of people only in their forties. Now there’s an incentive!
Swimming is a great way again to both tone and build muscle mass, as well as improve physical fitness and endurance. Need we say more! Swimming for about thirty minutes a session, three times a week, may be all you need to improve your love life.
Better Sex Exercise #4 – Briskwalking
Think briskwalking looks like a dorky waste of time? Think again. In another Harvard study, this time of over 30000 men aged 50+, found a link between regular briskwalking and a 30% reduced risk of erectile dysfunction.
Briskwalking is thought to help ED by improving circulation and bloodflow. Indeed, general aerobic exercise helps to not only keep blood vessels healthy and clear, but also release endorphins, which boost mood and decrease stress, leading in turn to a boost in sexual performance.
Better Sex Exercise #5 –Yoga
Want to spice things up with a few new positions. Not only will practising Yoga give you some good inspiration, but by improving flexibility and muscle tone it’ll really help you limber yourself up—the sexual advantages of which we trust we don’t have to spell out!
Some practitioners go even further and contend that Yoga boosts sexual stamina by drawing your energy in and up, and strengthening your core.
Particularly good are poses that specifically target pelvic muscles, such as the Bow Pose, Shoulder Stand and Peacock Pose.
