What Are the Best Exercises for Better Sex?

Some would argue that the only exercise you need to do is sex. Although there is scientific evidence that shows sexual activity can help burn some calories, it is not really that effective considering that most sex sessions rarely last longer than 20 minutes.

So, what is the best exercise for sex, then? Well, there is a reason why some sexologists advocate for people (both men and women) to go to the gym a couple of times a week and that is because weightlifting in conjunction with aerobic exercises can bring the most benefit for sexual performance.

Now, why is that? Well, when you engage in physical activities such as jogging, running on the treadmill, doing bicep curls, and bench presses, it can help engage your heart rate, improve blood pressure and flow, and it even strengthens the muscles which can truly benefit you when you have sex. There is also a growing body of evidence that suggests physical activity (exercise) can have a profound impact on bodily sensations.

Aside from going to the gym, it is also mandatory at this point that for people who want to improve their sexual performance, especially men, should consider doing Kegel exercises. This exercise would strengthen your pelvic floor muscles which are usually the ones that get left behind.

If you constantly have to rely on libido boosters just to improve your sexual performance, then it might be time for you to make drastic changes to your lifestyle. Upping your physical activity can definitely lead to better sex. But, what exercises are the best for that? Read on to find out.

Glute Bridges

Men, in particular, can truly benefit from doing glute bridges as this exercise not only helps strengthen your glutes and hamstrings, but it also works your pelvic floor muscles as well. On top of that, the exercise itself can help improve your thrusting performance too.

To perform this exercise, you want to lie flat on the floor or a mat with knees slightly bent while both of your feet are planted to the ground. Then, you want to focus your attention on your core every time you push through your heels. Raise your pelvis off of the ground while ensuring that your shoulders remain glued to the mat.


This particular exercise is great for building upper body strength which is required if you want to perform certain sex positions.

That being said, if you want to perform this exercise, you go down on the floor with your arms straight and your palms being shoulder-width apart. Next, you want to keep your head and neck in a neutral position while also focusing on engaging your core for the duration of the exercise. Your feet should also face forward toward the ground and it should be slightly off shoulder-width apart.

Then, every repetition would require you to lower your body down by bending your elbows just enough until your chest nearly touches the ground. Lastly, you want to push yourself back up by extending your arms. Do a couple of repetitions a few times a day.
