Sexual Performance - 3 Exercises To Improve It!

Sexual Performance - 3 Exercises To Improve It!

Research proves that exercise is a great way to improve sexual function in both men and women. Whether one suffers from sexual problems like erectile dysfunction or may just want to improve their sex life, exercising the sex muscles is effective in both cases. A particular group of muscles function together and are involved directly in the process.

Exercising these muscles will naturally increase the flow of blood to your penis and help improve sexual performance.
 
Here are ways to exercise which prove to be effective in enhancing your sex life.

  1. Exercising the core muscles and supporting muscles: This type of exercise aims at strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. An easy way to locate these muscles is to stop the flow of urine midway or to hold one's bladder when one needs to pee. Keeping the muscles contracted for a period of ten seconds and relaxing them completes one cycle. This exercise helps improve erection and control your orgasm better by strengthening the core muscles.
  2. Exercising the supporting muscles: The second exercise involves pushups. Without this exercise, the other muscles might become tired and one may not be able to achieve sexual fulfillment. This exercise tends to improve the strength of one's abs, lower back, shoulder, chest, arms, legs and buttocks. The muscles in these body parts are the supporting sex muscles which work together to make the act more fulfilling. A set of 10 or 20 pushups, three times a day is recommended.
  3. Exercising to enhance flow of blood to all body parts: Rebounding on a mini trampoline for at least 10 minutes a day can improve one's sexual performance to a great extent. It is important that one engages in the act carefully so as to avoid injury or accidents. This exercise is both fun and easy. It helps to increase the circulation of blood to all areas of the body and helps to strengthen the pelvic, abdominal muscles, hip and leg muscles. This exercise also helps to overcome lethargy.

Exercising - 7 Things You Must Never Do Before It!

Exercising - 7 Things You Must Never Do Before It!

Whether we are a fitness freak or a low key exerciser, we all want to get the best out of our workout routine. You have the enthusiasm, time, workout gear and are all set to hit the gym. But before you do, here are the top things you must avoid before your workout.

1. Eat too much

Don’t eat right before your workout time as this will not give enough time for the body to digest the food. Eat healthy and well ahead of your workout schedule in order to prevent acid reflux or heartburns during your workout. Also, don’t exercise with an empty stomach as your body needs its energy to engage in any kind of activity.

2. Drink too much

You may think that it is a good idea to have a couple of glasses of water before you start your workout. However in reality, it would do you more harm than help. Drinking water excessively can decrease the salt content in your blood and cause dizziness or nausea. Drink water consistently throughout the day, so that you are not left drinking too much right before your exercise.

3. Do static stretching

Isn’t stretching good before the workout? Well, recent studies have found that stretching is not all that helpful before the start of the workout. It can increase your chances of getting hurt and leave you worse-off. But, don’t forget to warm up before. You can do a simple warm up like light jogging or some jumping jacks to get you into the groove.

4. Sleep too much

Again, like drinking or eating, sleeping can also impact your exercise. A power nap can leave you energized and fresh before the workout, but sleeping too much can make you feel lethargic and sluggish. Postpone your sleep routine for after-exercise hours.

5. Painkillers

You might feel tempted to take a dose of over-the-counter painkillers for any sort of discomfort or pain that you might be facing. But popping these pills right before the workout is an absolute killer. You will feel sore and put your health at risk, if you do so.

6. Drink alcohol

Alcohol can lower your blood sugar level and cause dehydration. The combination of booze and exercise is not healthy and could lead to several hazards during your workout. So, stay away from alcohol; even a glass of wine can cause harm.

7. Overdress or underdress

Proper apparel is essential for workout. Wear what you are comfortable with and choose the right fabrics. Don’t add too many layers and let your skin breathe.

Kegel or pelvic muscle exercises are discrete exercises that strengthen the perineal or pubococcygeus muscles. In the past, they have been largely promoted by physicians to their female patients in an effort to aid with stress incontinence following childbirth. However, these same exercises are now being promoted to men in an effort to improve urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and even sexual health. Unlike typical exercise routines, these exercises don't require the participant to buy any weights or expensive machines. Kegel exercises primarily aid men with urinary incontinence. Besides preventing embarrassing urine leakage, they also decrease the urge to void. Secondly, they have been shown to help male sexual health by allowing some men's erections to last longer when affected by sexual dysfunction and premature ejaculation. These benefits all equate to a better quality of life. These exercises are often recommended to patients with weakened pelvic floor muscles such as patients with diabetes, patients having had prostate surgery in the past such as a radical prostatectomy, or obese patients. It should also be mentioned that these exercises have not been scientifically proven to increase kegel exercises are harmless if performed correctly. Chest and abdominal pain have been reported in some, but these occurrences are the result of inappropriately performed exercises. •how to do kegel ex’s ••find the right muscles. To identify your pelvic floor muscles, stop urination in midstream or tighten the muscles that keep you from passing gas. These maneuvers use your pelvic floor muscles. Once you've identified your pelvic floor muscles, you can do the exercises in any position, although you might find it easiest to do them lying down at first. •perfect your technique. Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for three seconds, and then relax for three seconds. Try it a few times in a row. When your muscles get stronger, try doing kegel exercises while sitting, standing or walking. •maintain your focus. For best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles. Be careful not to flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Avoid holding your breath. Instead, breathe freely during the exercises. •repeat 3 times a day. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day. Don't make a habit of using kegel exercises to start and stop your urine stream. Some doctors think this could cause a bladder infection. Now that you have located your pelvic floor muscles, you can exercise them even when you do not have to urinate (pee) by following these simple steps: 1.Tighten and hold your pelvic floor muscles for five seconds (count 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand, 3 one thousand, 4 one thousand, 5 one thousand). 2.Relax your pelvic muscles. You have just done one kegel exercise. You should plan to do 10 to 20 kegel exercises three to four times each day. Another way to tighten your pelvic floor muscles is to: 1.Squeeze the muscles in your anus (like you are holding a bowel movement). 2.Relax your pelvic floor muscles after each attempt. 3.Repeat this exercise 10 to 20 times. When you do your kegel exercises, remember•do not hold your breath. •do not push down. Squeeze your muscles together tightly and imagine that you are trying to lift this muscle up. •do not tighten the muscles in your stomach, buttocks, or thighs. •relax your pelvic floor muscles between each squeeze.

Exercise - Why Is It Important For Better Sex?

Exercise - Why Is It Important For Better Sex?

Exercising regularly has many benefits for the body and many times these benefits can be life changing. It has been proved that doing exercise sets the foundations for a happy sex life as well. While exercising the brain releases endorphins the sex hormone. These hormones not only spice up the sex but also help in digestion, lower the heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol and ease the body.

Here is how exercising routinely can improve the relationship in bed and make a huge difference: 

1.  Blood circulation: Blood flows and the exciting sensation is very important prior to and during sex. When a person exercises regularly then there is an increase in the blood circulation and thus the blood is pumped to all parts of the body. In women who exercise, the circulation increases the fluids of the vagina which in turn helps in a quicker lubrication when in the act.

2.  Release of endorphins: Having a clear mindset while having sex is very important. This is more important for women as they tend to over-ride things, thus working best when they have a clear mind and are able to concentrate only on the sexual act. When orgasm is achieved then endorphins are released which is basically a mood elevating chemical. It makes a person feel good and gives relaxed feeling of the mind and body along with euphoria. Endorphins are usually released during exercise, sports and sex. Along with the endorphins putting stress at bay and lifting the mood it also give a clear mind for the sexual activity.

3.  Longer and stronger orgasms: On average orgasm in men and women lasts for 10 and 20 seconds, respectively. With exercise one can easily extent this time, pleasure and strength of the orgasm. On contraction of the pelvic floor muscles an orgasm is achieved. When these muscles are kept strong then a longer orgasm is achieved. Sacrum is the area which supports the pelvis and spine; when it is exercised with glutes then it helps in strengthening the muscles. Also, kegels, squats, and pelvic thrusts are some of the exercises which can be done.

4.  Increases self confidence: A sexiest trait is that someone can show is that they feel good and confident about the way they look. Studies prove that people who exercise regularly and have good fitness levels display good confidence in their sexual acts and desirability.

5.  Exercises the brain: It is said that a great sex usually starts in the mind and the brain is a mighty sex organ. Thus it is of utmost importance that the brain must be fed with nurturing information, so that it becomes stronger. Research backs that by simply changing the way we think can change the brain to react to situations.

Exercise - Why You Should Do It Regularly?

Exercise - Why You Should Do It Regularly?

Some of the advantages of exercising regularly are known to all and these include weight loss and better blood circulation. However, the benefits of exercise aren’t just limited to the obvious. A few other not so obvious, as well as a few surprising reasons, are mentioned as follows.

  1. Corrects your posture: Having a good posture is much more than just aesthetics. A good or bad posture determines your overall health in many ways. Having bad posture may result in localized problems, such as spinal deformities and vertigo among others and may also lead to muscles loss over a prolonged period. Exercising helps in improving your posture by strengthening bones and muscles in your back as well as the spine.

  2. Improves memory: One of the not so obvious benefits of exercising is that it improves your memory. The connection may not seem so obvious, but exercising also improves blood circulation and supply of oxygen to all the body parts including the brain, which results in better memory.

  3. Helps maintain and improve the immune system: The immune system within your body helps fight all the intruders and toxins that may cause an infection or illness. Exercising not only helps to maintain it but boost it as well. As a result, you will fall sick less often and your immunity will stay strong even as you age.

  4. Ensures your bones remain strong: Bone loss and other related disorders are a fact of life and become more pronounced as you age. However, exercising can curb the rate of decay and help in making your bones stronger. It is important to know that bone-strengthening exercises are not the same for all ages and they need to be adapted as per the requirement.

  5. Helps you have better sex: Exercising will help improve your blood circulation, muscle mass, mood and will keep you active. The endocrine glands are forced to work harder to produce hormones to maintain muscle mass and this also contributes to better sexual functioning. Exercising will help keep your sex drive high and help you have better sex by keeping you fit.

  6. Ensures better sleep: Many of the sleep-related disorders caused in the body are due to inactivity and lack of physical exertion. Once you start exercising, the physical exertion will help you get to sleep and also regulate your circadian rhythm or daily sleep and wake cycles.

  7. Reduces stress and anxiety: Exercising releases endorphins which help improve your mood and help in reducing stress and anxiety. This, in turn, can help reduce hypertension and blood pressure, thus helping in controlling other related disorders.

  8. Builds confidence: Exercising will improve your overall appearance and thus, help you have more confidence due to a better body image. However, it also helps by making you feel accomplished as you incrementally push your physical limits while exercising. This will spill over into every aspect of your life and help you be successful or deal with failure better.

  1. De-stress: Sex helps to reduce stress. During sexual activity, the body produces dopamine a hormone which fights against stress, endorphins or hormones which cause you to feel happy and oxytocin a hormone which increases desire. So sex on a daily basis is indeed an apt idea.
  2. Form of exercise: Sex is essentially a type of physical activity. The physiological changes that occur in a body during sexual intercourse is similar to that of work out. Respiratory and heart rate rises and a feeling of tiredness comes post coitus as calories are burned.

  5. Less chances of cancerRegular sexual intercourse lowers the risk of prostate cancer. Irregular or rare ejaculation can cause the prostate to swell which may lead to prostate cancer.
  6. Regulates period: Sex regulates hormone secretion and hormones in return, determine the menstrual cycles. As such regular sex thus indirectly ends up regulating the menstrual cycle. Sex reduces stress which in turn prevents women to miss their periods.
  7. Healthier semen: If a couple is trying to conceive, regular sex is highly beneficial as with regular ejaculation old sperm is replaced from the testicles which increase the chance of conception.
  8. Stronger pelvic muscles: The act of sexual intercourse requires the active participation of several muscle groups. The pelvic muscles, in particular, become stronger which ultimately helps in the formation of a strong bladder and bowel movements.
  9. Prevents erectile dysfunctionErectile dysfunction can seriously hamper the sexual activity of a person. Regular sex is known to prevent erectile dysfunction as with regular sex blood flows regularly via the penile arteries which keeps the tissues healthy preventing erectile dysfunction.

Kegel Is Not Only Needed By Females But Also Males!

Kegel Is Not Only Needed By Females But Also Males!

Kegel exercises for men can help improve bladder control and possibly improve sexual performance.

1. Finding the right muscles: to identify your pelvic floor muscles, stop urination in midstream or tighten the muscles that keep you from passing gas. These techniques use your pelvic floor muscles. Once you've identified your pelvic floor muscles, you can do the exercises in any position, although you might find it easiest to do them lying down at first.
2. Benefits of Kegel exercises for men: many factors can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, including the surgical removal of the prostate (radical prostatectomy) and conditions such as diabetes and an overactive bladder. 
You might benefit from doing kegel exercises if you: have urinary or faecal incontinence, dribbling after urination — usually after you've left the toilet. 
3. Maintain your focus: for best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles. Be careful not to bend the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Avoid holding your breath. Instead, breathe freely during the exercises.

List of all kegel exercises are as below:

1. One-two punch: squeeze that pelvic floor muscle as hard as you can, hold it for a beat or two, then relax fully. If it helps, combine the exercise with a deep breath in and a deep breath out while you concentrate on relaxing. Remember, a muscle is supposed to contract and relax. 
2. Endurance test: squeezing, lifting your pelvis, and holding for a long time is your best bet for building endurance.
3. The hip shaker: stand up with your legs shoulder-width apart, put your hands on your hips, and pop your hips fro side to side. 
4. The bridge: by simply adding an isolated kegel exercise to something like the bridge pose, you're strengthening your pelvic floor and your glutes. 
5. The clamshell: complete the isolated kegel exercises while lifting one knee up and rotating it outward, once again strengthening all different types of muscles that play a role during sex.
