For most people, sex is a rigorous activity. It involves more of your body than just the reproductive organs. Sex engages your heart, lungs and muscles.
As with any other physical activity, such as running and jumping, sexual performance benefits from exercise. Improving your strength, endurance and flexibility can translate into a better physical sex life. Exercise will also help to improve your confidence as you begin to feel better about your physical appearance.
Sex requires the use of muscles throughout your body. You’ll need your arms to hold yourself in position. Muscles in your stomach, back, and legs help you to maintain balance and provides you with the strength necessary for sexual motion. To maintain, and even improve, your strength level, incorporate a weight training schedule into your lifestyle. Exercises like pull-ups, bench press, and squats can translate into a stronger performance in the bedroom.
While longevity is not always a requirement in your sex life, it is necessary to, at the very least, “go the distance.” Improving your overall endurance level will help make that possible. Muscular endurance allows you to hold positions and continue movements for longer periods of time. So, when using weights, try to fit in to some muscle endurance sessions amidst your strength training sessions.
Endurance also refers to your cardiovascular health. A healthy set of heart and lungs leads to healthy sexual performance. To ensure that you’re not overexerting yourself during those intimate moments, make certain your workout routine contains some time on the treadmill or outside for a run.
For some, exciting sex involves variety. Variety usually refers to trying different positions. Some positions are easier to perform than others. If you are adventurous, the more difficult positions may require flexibility. Stretching your muscles regularly is a necessity when exercising. It also helps keep your muscles limber for sex.
Probably the most important benefit of exercising is that it helps build confidence — in yourself, your body, and your ability. Exercise changes your physique. While watching your body transform, you may see yourself as more attractive. Confidence plays a large role in your sexual ability.
Sexual performance and exercise go hand in hand. To do the former well, you will need to make the latter a part of your life. Exercising will not only increase the longevity of sex at your present age, but it will also contribute greatly to your sex life as you grow older. Make exercise a part of your life today. You, and your partner, will both be thankful you did.
