EX­ER­CISE FOR BET­TER SEX

Destiny Man - - HEALTH SPY -

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.
