Improve Your Sex Life With Exercise
If health and aren't enough to get you to exercise, how about improving your sex life? Sure, exercise can help you look better, always a plus in one's love life, but it also gives you more energy and more stamina for your sex life. You already know why exercise is so important for your health, but you may not know that studies have found a direct correlation between physical inactivity and a lack of potency.
More exercise may lead to more, and better, sex. Here's what you'll need to get the most out of your sex life.
For enthusiastic sex, you'll need to build cardio endurance. It makes your heart strong and keeps your body going. Try for 3 or 4 days of cardio exercise like running, walking, swimming or any activity you enjoy.
Sex also requires you to hold...er...occasionally uncomfortable positions for short periods of time, so conditioning your body can be a plus for longer lasting sex. If you're new to strength training, start with a basic strength workout 2-3 times a week or learn more about weight training to see how you can set up your own program.
As long as we're talking about holding yourself in position, strength is something else you'll need. Your basic strength workout will help you build more strength, just make sure you challenge your muscles with enough weight. You should use enough weight that your last rep is difficult, but not impossible and, if you're a woman, don't worry that you'll bulk up. Women don't produce enough testosterone to build big muscles, but you will build amazing strength.
Being limber can enhance anyone's sex life by making it a bit easier to get into your favorite position with less discomfort. Try stretching after your workouts or incorporate a little yoga into your routine. Yoga is also relaxing, which can help you reduce fatigue and get you in the mood.
Keep in mind that both sex and exercise have been proven to help reduce stress, so doing both on a regular basis should help you stay relaxed and happy.
Exercise also helps increase your sexual desire. Elizabeth Scott, our Stress Guide discusses this in her article, , pointing out that, "...at times stress can actually prevent us from being ‘in the mood’. With the libido-dampening effects of excessive stress, sex sometimes goes by the wayside."
Exercise, along with a healthy diet and adequate sleep can boost your libido so you're up for anything.
Don't forget that sex burns calories. Sure, it has to be fairly vigorous to get your heart rate going, but a 130-lb person can burn about seven calories per five minutes of vigorous sex. Keep it up for an hour, and you'll burn off 88 calories...not a bad trade-off.
If you're pregnant, you should read about to find out safe ways to enjoy sex while you're pregnant.
