You’ve heard the phrase “move it or lose it,” but what about “exercise to sensualize?” That’s right. Any and all aerobic exercise increases circulation and ensures a healthy circulatory system. A strong blood flow is key to keeping it hot and heavy in the bedroom. Check out the exercises below to keep your heart pumping in more ways than one this year.
This might be an obvious one, but there’s a reason it’s so popular. A stronger pelvic floor means a stronger orgasm. This easy exercise only takes five minutes a day and can be performed at work, in the car, and even during sex! Did you know that 50% of people are doing Kegels wrong? To make sure you’re doing this exercise correctly, next time nature calls, stop your urine stream then restart. That’s a Kegel. Aim for 25 reps, three times a day and prepare yourself for stronger orgasms. You can even add weighted vaginal exerciser balls to the work out. Need more instructions? Check out this blog.
Not only do glute bridges strengthen your pelvic floor, they strengthen hamstrings and glutes, adding a bit more lust to your thrusts. Having more control over these muscles means stronger, more controlled orgasms. Exercises only work if you do them correctly! Lay on the floor with your knees bent, chin tucked, and eyes forward. Press your feet into the ground as you raise your hips into the air. Squeeze your glutes at the top and hold for three seconds and bring your hips back to the ground. Complete 25 reps daily for best results.
It’s all about the core strength, baby! Planks are the best full-body exercise, and hit your abs, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks muscles. Add power to missionary position when on top and strengthen your core to improve thrusts and prevent injury. Planks allow you to stay closer to your partner for longer. Remember to keep that butt down when planking! Start facedown with your forearms and toes touching the floor, elbows directly under the shoulders, and forearms facing forward. Hold for 60 seconds at a time. Remember, a plank a day can keep the doctor away, unless your partner’s roleplaying as a doctor… They definitely won’t stay away.
Having sex is a cardiovascular exercise in itself. But just like stretching, it’s important to prep your body before physical activity. Getting in a brisk walk, jumping rope, or any activity that gets your blood pumping can boost blood flow, especially to your nether regions. That means stronger erections for men and greater arousal for women. Remember, a little extra cardio never hurt anybody.
Get that heart pumping and those legs jumping! Boost your stamina in the bedroom, improve leg stability, and add leg strength, all in one move. This can get your body primed for intense, marathon sex sessions. Ever been on top in a froggy position and have your legs give out? Say goodbye to that awkward moment. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, squat down and jump up, bending your knees when you return back to the floor.
According to science, working out for better sex sounds like a better deal than using sex as a workout. This new year, exercise not only for your physical and mental health, but your sexual health as well. Here’s to 2023 and better sex!
