Everyone wants to be fit and healthy, whether they care to admit it or not. One of the main reasons why people want to get in shape, lose weight, or get healthier is to make life a little easier for themselves and the people they love. It also helps in the romance department, if you know what I mean.
Something that`s important to many people is having a good sex life. But did you know that there are simple exercises out there that will improve all of that? If that sounds appealing to you, you`ll definitely want to keep reading.
Pushups will help you gain the stability and strength you`ll need to hold yourself up during sex. They work the chest, shoulders, triceps, and all of the muscles in your core, which are all necessary when it comes to having great sex.
Having strong legs means that you can hold yourself (and possibly your partner) up for long periods of time. Squats work the glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves.
Bridges are great for opening up your hips. Having stiff hips isn`t conducive to having awesome sex, so you`ll want to make sure that they are free and open. Bridges will also work your calves, glutes, and abs.
4. Stability Ball Crunches
This exercise is a core-training staple. If you do some crunches while balancing on a large ball like this, you`ll be able to work your abs, obliques, and even the muscles in your back. You`ll be stable and ready for anything if you improve your core.
Lunges work your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves. They also open up your hip flexors, and we already know why that`s a big deal.
This is more of a stretch than an exercise, but you can`t beat strengthening your lower back and loosening up your hips at the same time.
7. Back Bends
Back bends improve flexibility in your back, but they also work out your shoulders, glutes, wrists, and ankles. Those last few joints go overlooked sometimes, but trust me, you`ll want to keep your wrists and ankles flexible.
These loosen up your entire body and help improve overall flexibility over time.
This move requires a lot of power in your hips and core muscles, but if you can perform v-sits, it will vastly improve your sex life.
10. Plié Squats
This version is a simple spin on the old standby that will target your hips and glutes in a totally new way.
Planks are essential to any core exercise routine. It`s important for you to be able to hold yourself up while having sex, and this exercise will help you do that.
12. Reclined Butterfly
While this is also a stretch, it is essential for improving hip flexibility and strength.
13. Lying Leg Raises
These are great for improving core strength and stability.
14. Hollow Body Hold
This hold will work your core and hips incredibly hard while stretching out your back, which is often injured during sex.
