Sex, Fitness and You – The Ultimate Threesome

Preserve Your Sex and Maintain Your Sexy…

Yes, your workouts can help get your sex life (back) in shape. Today, I’ll give you easy ways to boost energy, rev up your sex drive and get your body to look how you feel – sexy.

 

Sex in the Kitchen

 

First, let’s talk about my favorite topic – food. As the saying goes; ”abs are built in the kitchen” and so is    the libido. Eating certain foods can release hormones that put you in the mood, and you don’t need any   special recipes or fancy chefs either. Here are six libido – boosting foods, in no particular order.

  1. Oysters – Packed with zinc (a mineral that helps fertility), this crustacean also contains antioxidants and other trace elements needed for sexual function. Try sprinkling a little lemon on an oyster during     dinner, you may notice easier arousal during sexy time.
  2. Yohimbe – This African herb has been used as an aphrodisiac for centuries and is known as the natural Viagra. The yohimbe tree bark contains the natural chemical yohimbine and can be found in energy drinks and sports supplements.
  3. Broccoli – Added to your salad or next to a nice steak, the Vitamin C in them helps with blood circulation and is also known to increase female sex drive.
  4.    Watermelon – Yes, seriously. At 92% water, watermelon filled with a nutrient called Citruline that ultimately relaxes the blood vessels to increase blood flow. Similar to the effects of Viagra, you may be able to skip the little blue pill. Now you see why Beyonce was drinking it.
  5. Eggs – No matter how you like to eat them, eggs are loaded with protein which boosts stamina, and L-arginine which has been used to treat erectile dysfunction. Plus, they’re low in calories – so you can burn some in the bedroom instead.
  6. 6. Ginseng – University of Hawaii researchers discovered that using ginseng supplements boosted women’s libido in a month, with many saying their overall sex life improved as well. The root has been used    since ancient times as an aphrodisiac in many different cultures. Ask any of your Jamaican friends what Bedroom Bully or Baba Roots are – they know…

In the Gym

Working out can increase blood flow to the genitals and pump out the hormones necessary for sex drive. Try simple moves like squats, leg lifts and reverse crunches at home for a “head start,” then turn it up a notch at the gym to really go hard.

Weighted machines will not only help you burn fat, they increase the ability to produce hormones like testosterone, estrogen and serotonin. In addition, the muscles you work then begin to burn more fat, which eventually sculpts your entire body. Just imagine, your visual sexy will match how you feel in no time. You’ll typically begin to see visible results in two to three weeks.

 

Leg Adductor

Sex and Fitness I call these

While pushing the weights inward on the leg adductor (inner thing muscles) machine, squeeze your vaginal muscles. Release them when you open your legs to do the next rep, and squeeze again as you push inward. This move alone can help increase the strength of your vaginal walls, as well as fight incontinence and urinary tract infections. Don’t worry fellas, these moves are not only for women. Maintaining control of the kegel muscles can help men hold longer, stronger erections as they are better able to control blood flow to the penis.

 

Lying (Prone) Leg Curls

Sex and Fitness

Lying (Prone) Leg Curls are for those looking for a rounder, stronger looking butt. Three sets of ten and you will feel it in the morning. Start by lying face down on the machine, brace your abdominal muscles against the bench and place the cushions above your Achilles tendons (the narrow part above your heel). Lift steadily until the weights will go no higher, bringing your feet towards your cheeks. Lower your legs gently, and start again. This move not only works on the gluteus muscles, but strengthens the lower back as well. Get that arch ready, ladies.

 

Gym Tip: While doing leg curls, keep your toes pointed out and your feet aligned with each other. Don’t turn your ankles in or out, which allows for better control and avoids injury.

 

Assisted Crunches work great if you are recovering from surgery or just had a baby. This simple machine supports the back while allowing you to use your abdominal muscles to raise your torso upward. Three sets of twenty will allow your muscles time to adjust, but still gives you some burn around the second to third rep.

 

The Stair Climber

The Stair Climber is my least favorite machine. We have a love-hate relationship; I hate getting on it, but I love the way my booty looks. Using this machine 2-3 times a week can really tone up the thighs and butt muscles. Choose a comfortable level to start off with, download a movie to your phone and go ham. 30 minutes is the ideal duration for this workout.

 

Weighted Ball Crunches

Weighted Ball Crunches are a little more advanced, but give serious results. This move works the upper and lower abdominals and also strengthens the arms. Three sets of ten are suggested for beginners.

 

[Abdominal Curls]

Sex and Fitness

There are a few different kinds of Abdominal Curl machines at most gyms, choose the one that is most comfortable for your skill level. The machine pictured allows you to use your arms to support the weights, but puts all the effort on your abs. Do this one until “failure”; when you cannot do any more.

 

After a day or two of these workouts, you’ll be walking like Robocop, but in about two weeks you will see results that you may not expect. Not only will you start to look the way you want, but you’ll feel it, too. Part of your sex drive is affected by confidence levels, so loving the way you look in the mirror plays a big role in how you get down when you’re naked. Try these simple moves, the worst that can happen is you get a little sexier…
