Believe it or not studies indicate that there is a direct correlation with between physical inactivity and a lack of potency. So if you say health and fitness are not good enough reasons to exercise, why not exercise to improve your sex life. Exercises do help you to look good, feel better and of course now it’s proved to increase potency.
Here is what you need …
1 – For passionate sex you’ll need some cardio endurance, if you would not want to bonk out half way go on and do some cardio exercise (swimming, walking, jogging) 3 to 4 times weekly.
2 – For unusual positioning you need some conditioning of your body! For this you need to lift some light weights on with more repetition (usually more than 15 reps). Some recommended exercises are compound multi joint exercises like squats, deadlifts, bent over rows, clean and presses.
3 – Now here is a deal … if you would want to hold yourself in a position for long, you need a muscular strength. You’re muscles goes under a static contraction while you hold long in one position. For this purpose you need to work and develop strength, lift heavier with few repetitions (usually 6 or less reps).
4 – Flexibility is vital as I always say, if you would want to go into a different position without much commotion train to improve your flexibility after every workout. Flexibility is something we all neglect in all workouts. Stretch all you muscles holding each stretch from 15 to 20 seconds.
So design a workout program which includes some cardio work, endurance/strength training, with lots of flexibility work.
Another study indicates that man who had sex at least three times a week cut their risk of heart attack in half. Surprising?
Researchers started out studying the benefits of vigorous exercise, looking at an activity lasting 20 minutes or longer and making the exerciser sweaty or out of breath. Most of the men they questioned thought that sex fit this description just as well as soccer.
This surprised the scientists, but they decided to study the issue. About 2,400 men in the town of Caerphilly in Wales were questioned about their habits, including how often they had sex? Once, twice or three times a week or more. Then they were followed up for ten years. Those who reported the most frequent sexual activity were only half as likely to suffer a stroke or heart attack during that time.
At this point the doctors who carried out the study concluded that sex itself is a good exercise. Don’t forget that sex burns calories! Calories are calories right?
A 60kg person burns about 07 calories per five minutes of vigorous sex. If you claim to be strong enough, keep it up for 2 hours and you’ll burn 177 calories, don’t you think its good enough to burn those calories of the chips you ate while watching TV after dinner.
Exercise to improve potency, have sex to burn calories, look good and reduces the risk of CHD (coronary heart disease) … amazing isn’t it?
