Work it Out: Exercises You Should be Doing for Better Sex
July 18, 2012
Much like an athlete wanting to be at the top of their game, training and exercise will help you to become better at lovemaking. So what’s the fitness focus when it comes to enjoying gold-medal worthy sex? Well, we’ve got a list!
The Right Move: Push-ups or, depending on your beginning fitness level, wall pushes – think push-ups against a wall while standing. After some time doing wall pushes, you can then graduate to knee push-ups on the floor before attempting full-on push-ups.
Abs and Core: no matter which position you find yourself in, your core is key to longer-lasting lovemaking.
The Right Move: good old-fashioned abdominal crunches – or if you’re into yoga, try holding the plank position to tighten your core. Do the plank position by getting into push-up position, and support your weight on your elbows, forearms and toes. Keep your elbows shoulder-width apart and your ankles touching. Tense your abs to keep your pelvis from dipping towards the floor, keeping your back as straight as you can. Hold for 40-60 seconds.
Cardio: equally important inside and outside the bedroom, cardiovascular exercise ups your stamina and improves your body’s use of oxygen.
The Right Move: keep your heart rate elevated for 30 minutes at least 5 times a week in any way you choose; spinning, running, swimming, or even a steamy session with a partner – whatever gets your blood pumping!
Flexibility: because of course flexibility.
The Right Move: it may feel silly the first time you do it, but stretching before sex makes a marked difference in the experience. Getting limbered up before lovemaking will allow you to hold whatever position you like for longer, and avoid muscle cramping.
Pelvic Floor: Kegels, PC muscles, the pelvic floor – whatever you call them, they’re a muscle set that has far-reaching benefits that go beyond lovemaking. Stronger and easier-to-attain orgasms alongside lifelong bladder control – what’s not to love?
The Right Move: by using LUNA Beads, our body-safe and quality-assured version of ‘ben wa’ or ‘geisha’ balls, every woman can enjoy the health benefits of tight, toned Kegels with easy and effective results. By simply wearing your chosen weight combination of LUNA beads discreetly inside while going about your day-to-day activities, you’re experiencing a full pelvic workout that’s tailored specifically to your fitness level. And now that LUNA Beads are available in 2 sizes – the all-new LUNA Beads Mini alongside the classic LUNA Beads, even more women can achieve their pleasure potential through improved pelvic floor fitness.
That last point could be seen as a shameless plug, because it is – we’re not ashamed of letting women know about the whys and hows that make LUNA Beads and LUNA Beads Mini an important part of every woman’s fitness regime.
