There’s no denying that sex requires stamina and endurance. (well that’s if you’re doing it right of course) And how do you build stamina and endurance? You start exercising…regularly. Without doubt, the fitter and stronger you are, the better you are going to be able to perform in the bedroom, as you’ll be able to last the distance without conking out.

Now if you’re still searching for a good reason to start exercising, perhaps the idea of an improved sex life might convince you to get cracking?

A bedroom romp can be an exhausting workout, as you might find yourself having to hold certain positions for short or long periods of time. So it’s important that your body is conditioned and flexible enough to do this, otherwise you could find yourself, or your partner injured. So don’t get too carried away with the Karma Sutra just yet!

So how do you prepare your body for better sex through exercise?

  1. You need to work on your cardiovascular activity. For example start running, boxing, swimming, cycling, do anything you can to increase your heart rate, and keep it elevated for more than 30 minutes at a time.
  2. You need to work on your strength, so start lifting weights. If you haven’t weight trained before start with high repetitions on low weights and build up from there.
  3. You need to work on your flexibility, so start stretching out before and after each training session. Once your flexibility improves you can start to try and aim for greater range or depth with your weight training which will help also. For example, the deep legged squat. You might find at first that you can only squat to a 45 degree angle, and then with practice you should aim to hit 90 degrees, which is virtually your hamstrings touching your calves. Nice depth here. Or consider incorporating yoga or pilates into your weekly training regime to improve flexibility and strength.

Doing regular exercise (4 times a week) will give you greater energy levels as you will feel less tired and be more willing and able to hit the bedroom at the end of your busy day. Not to mention, people who exercise often feel more confident about their bodies because they look better. If you stick to an exercise plan within no time you’ll be wanting to leave the lights on and undress for your partner. And lest not forget, sex burns calories so if you manage to go the distance for an hour or so you can tell your trainer that you did an extra training session or three this week!

Happy romancing!
