10 exercises making men exceptional at sex
The last thing a man wants to worry about in the throes of passion is pulling a muscle, wearing out or losing stamina. The act of sex relies on a lot of muscles a man normally doesn’t use over the course of a day. Once he’s in bed with his significant other and the moment’s right, he’ll want his body prepped, ready to go for better sexual performance. A man’s sex life is an extremely important component of relieving stress, lowering blood pressure and enhancing his immune system. To keep activities in the bedroom bustling, a man needs to give his sex life an extra boost by remaining fit and that means to exercise.
Exercise increases energy, stamina, tones muscles, burns fat and improves mood and self-image. All of those benefits will extend into the bedroom improving his sex life beyond his wildest fantasies. Just burning an extra 200 calories a day can lower the risk of erectile dysfunction – which always puts a damper on performance. Throw in some cardio, strength training and stretching and suddenly a man will be trying out new positions impressing his partner and himself.
Even if a man’s sex life is going along great, he shouldn’t take things for granted. To keep bedroom moves fresh, vibrant and exciting, a man needs to care enough to do what it takes to make that happen. Here are the moves all men can do to achieve this:
1. Do planks
Planks are terrific for increasing endurance, stamina and giving arms staying power for the missionary position or other on-top positions. The core muscles in the abdominal area are particularly targeted for thrust and helping to prevent a back injury.
2. Lying leg raises
Lying leg raises is an intense move meant to improve thrust and targets the quads and glutes making upright sex positions easier to do.
Yes, there are kegels for men. Training the pelvic floor muscles can prevent an overactive bladder, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. In addition, kegels will tone and strengthen the pubococcygeus muscles and the perineal muscles improving the rigidity of an erection and the power of ejaculation.
4. Push ups
The classic push up is one of the best moves a man (or anyone) can do for strengthening the upper body and core. Regular push ups will bring noticeable improvements in staying power, a stronger thrust and better stability for on-top positions.
There is almost no better way to strengthening the lower body than doing squats daily. This powerful sex-enhancing move can increase testosterone levels increasing blood flow to the pelvic region which means more intense orgasms. Having better lower body strength will also improve thrust ability.
Here is another perfect exercise all men should be doing – it enhances endurance, mobility, balance, core stability and builds strength. Blood flow is also directed to the pelvic region when performing a lunge which results in better moves in the bedroom.
7. Reclined butterfly pose
Most men tend to skip flexibility moves – bad idea. Loosening up the inner thighs and hips are necessary if a man wants to engage in a variety of sexual positions. A reclined butterfly pose will do the job of stretching those muscles making them ready for action.
Here’s another stretching move targeting the inner thighs, hamstrings, obliques, pectorals, triceps and lats. Performing this move leads to improved circulation, reduces fatigue and creates long, toned muscles giving you more leverage in bed.
9. Interval training
To really boost your stamina and endurance, there is nothing quite like interval training to make it happen. Interval training is a type of training involving a series of low- to high-intensity exercise workout interspersed with rest or relief periods. The high-intensity periods are close to anaerobic exercise giving it your all while the recovery periods are of much lower intensity. It can be done on a track, at the park, on a bike, elliptical, stair climber or treadmill. However you want to do it, it will help you achieve peak performance in bed.
10. Seated straddle stretch
Sitting at a desk or in front of a computer for hours can constrict muscles below the belt. Loosen things up with a straddle stretch, improving blood flow to the groin and pelvic region helping to enhance sensation while improving orgasms. Stretching and lengthening out the often underused muscles in this area can also aid in maneuvering yourself into more adventurous positions in bed.
