Best Exercises to Improve your Sex Life
In general, exercise is great for a fit and healthy body. But doing regular exercise and keeping fit also has benefits in bed too. Having a fit and healthy body means you will be a better performer in the bedroom, if you know what I mean. You will last longer and have more stamina. And your partner will love you for it. This article looks at the best exercises to improve your sex life.
While exercise in general, will do the trick, there are some specific ones that can work magic for your sex life. We like to call these sexercises.
Doing exercises that target your glutes, that focus on creating more flexibility and that increase stamina are all essential areas to concentrate on when developing a sexercise routine. Here are a few sexercises that will help you make the right moves in bed.
1. Sexercises for Better Glutes
The mother of all sexercises is the hip thrust. This exercise specifically targets the gluteus maximus, informally known as the glute, and strengthen the hips or pelvic area, which are commonly used during sex. Fitness master, Scott Herman, explains how to do hip thrusts the right way. As the name suggests, hip thrusts involve, well, thrusting your hips. Here’s what Scott says. First, you’d need an exercise bench that’s just the height of your shoulder blades. You can use your bed. It has the right height and the right length. Ideally, the bench should be long enough to accommodate the length of your outstretched arms. Sit on the floor, back straight and legs outstretched. Lean against the bench, shoulders touching. Extend your arms across the bench. Bend your knees and place the soles of your feet firmly on the floor. Then thrust your hips upwards. Ensure that your knees remain at a 90-degree angle and your back and thighs are straight and parallel to the floor. Tighten and squeeze your glutes as you thrust upwards. Repeat, doing 5 sets of 12. The video below gives a great demonstration of the hip thrust, with Scott Herman.
2. Yoga for Better Sex
Yoga has been touted by many sex experts (sexperts) as an essential sexercise. It increases flexibility and we all know how important it is to be limber during sex, especially when you want to try out more complex sex positions. If you’ve never done yoga before, don’t worry. You can start out slowly with simple positions and work your way up. Some yoga is much better than none. Creator of the P90X system, Tony Horton, explains that yoga is an important component of any exercise routine, whether you are looking to bulk up or lose weight. He admits that as he approaches the prime of his life it is not pull ups, but yoga that allows him to do things that other men his age have difficulty in doing. You see, flexibility is important for the body. It is also important for sex. Yoga positions, such as, the cat/cow stretch, the downward facing dog, the pigeon and the baby pose, can all assist in improving flexibility over time for a better sex experience. Here’s a short video from Man Flow Yoga, that demonstrates 10 yoga exercises to help improve your sex life.
3. Strength Training to Make you a Sex Animal
Strength training can also be useful for a better sex life. Becoming stronger, especially if you are thin, underweight and lack sufficient muscle tone, will allow you to better manhandle your partner during sex (if that’s what floats your boat, you tiger). Flexed curls and squats mean you can spice things up in bed by holding your partner upright. Different pushup styles and a strong core will provide you with upper-body strength and stamina when you’re on top.
4. Kegel Exercises for a More Powerful Orgasm
Kegel exercises can help you in your sex life. If you’ve never heard of the Kegel exercise, don’t worry. Doing Kegel exercises is pretty simple. Here’s how it works. Kegel exercises help strengthen your PC or pubococcygeus muscle. The PC muscle is a concave shaped muscle that stretches from the pubic bone to the tail bone. It is the main muscle of the pelvic cavity and supports the pelvic organs, such as the bladder, small bowels, and rectum in both men and women; the uterus and vagina in women; supports the control and force of ejaculation in men; and has even been touted to increase the intensity of orgasms.
Identifying the PC muscle is easy. Have you ever had to stop the flow of urine just as you’re in the middle of urinating? The muscle you use to stop urine flow is the PC muscle. If you can do that then you can do Kegel exercises. Just squeeze and release your PC muscle repeatedly. Try 5 reps of 30 squeezes in the morning or just about any time. Dr. Hernando Chaves, in his comprehensive article on Kegel exercises, says that you can do them while brushing your teeth and again throughout the day, as often as you like. You could even do Kegels while you’re sitting in the car or at your desk. It’s that easy.
Once you develop a stronger PC muscle you’d be able to control your ejaculation. Just as with the stoppage of urine flow, you’d be able to master stopping an orgasm better than before. Ever reached the point of no return and know that there’s nothing you can do to stop from ejaculating? We’ve all been there, right? Strengthening your PC muscle will give you better control to help you delay the point of no return, even if you’re almost on the edge.
5. Use Stamina Training Unit to Last Longer in Bed
Although not an exercise per se, using the Stamina Training Unit is a fun and safe way to help get rid of premature ejaculation or just help men last longer in bed. And if you do it rigorously, I bet you’d burn a few calories too. If sexual stamina is what you’re looking for, then the Stamina Training unit is exactly what you need. The Stamina Training Unit or STU for short, is a Fleshlight sex toy designed specifically for men who want to learn to last longer during sex. With regular use of the STU Fleshlight you can say goodbye to premature ejaculation and hello to being a long-lasting stud in the sack.
As the name suggests, the STU increases sexual stamina, but it involves training over a period of time. As with any exercise, you cannot expect results overnight. One user in the Fleshlight forum revealed that he saw a 180% improvement in his sexual stamina in just two weeks. When he started using the STU, it took him 2.5 minutes to reach climax. After two weeks of using the STU in a systematic manner, he was able to last up to 7 minutes. While his little ‘sexperiment’ isn’t significant to be considered scientific, it does say something about using the STU to last longer during sex.
