EXERCISE FOR BETTER SEX
A visit to the gym may be just what you need to up your game in the bedroom. Studies have linked short, intense exercises such as weight-lifting to increased testosterone levels. Push-ups, sit-ups and crunches build muscles and can improve your sex performance by strengthening your shoulders, chest and abs. Upper-body strength can increase stamina, since these muscles are used during intercourse.
The romantic benefits of exercise aren’t limited to the physical. You know that saying, “A couple who play together stay together”? Well, if you schedule a regular workout or fun activity such as a walk or game of tennis with your partner, you’re also strengthening your communication outside the bedroom. This, in turn, will boost your sex life. And if exercise ups your self-confidence, it’s a win for everybody.
