Let’s Get Physical: Exercises that Make Sex Better

Jan 312018
 

best_sex_workoutThere are plenty of health and wellness reasons to hit the gym – or go power walking or take Tai Chi or try rock climbing – which include how great the rush of endorphins caused by exercise will make you feel.

Well, we happen to know another activity that tends to cause a flow of happy brain chemicals and leave us breathless, so why not tailor your workouts to help you in this physical pursuit!

Time to Flex: How to Prep Your Muscles For Sex

Changing your fitness focus to the right areas can significantly increase your pleasure during sex. No matter what position you find yourself in, your core is typically always engaged. Try incorporating more abdominal crunches and planks into your workout routine to strengthen your core even more.

Your arms, shoulders, hips and legs are typically engaged when lovemaking too – so it’s important to make sure you stretch in order to avoid muscle cramping. Plus –  once you’re more limber – you can hold your favorite positions for longer. Last but not least, practicing cardiovascular exercise more frequently will up your stamina and leave you ready for more. Try elevating your heart rate through cardio for 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week for optimal results.

In & Out: Breathing Exercises

During high-intensity bursts of activity, we tend to hold our breath. The same can be said for when we engage in sexual activity. When our bodies aren’t breathing efficiently, they don’t work as well as they should. Make the most out of your next orgasm by working on your breathing exercises. The key to controlling your breathing during sex is to breathe in from the abdomen, using your stomach muscles to pull air down into your body. This exercise is not only great for sex – it’s useful in everyday life too.

Inner Strength: Kegel Your Way to Stronger Orgasms

Did you know the same muscles that contract during an orgasm are strengthened when doing Kegel exercises? Also known as your ‘PC’ (pubococcygeus), these muscles allow you to tone your way to a better orgasm when you practice Kegel exercises frequently. Plus – the more you tone your PC muscles, the more enhanced your sexual sensations and ability to reach climax will be. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your Kegel exercise experience, the best Kegel exercisers today are made from medical grade silicone and even feature training routines that keep you on track.
