What is Sexercise?

Everybody knows quite well the miracles regular exercise is capable of working on our mental and physical health. Bunch of folks enjoy recreational swimming or early-morning run or various forms of yogic exercises to refresh their body and spirits after an interminable day at work or anywhere. Also, shown by research is the fact that regular exercise can’t only reduce your chances of developing serious illnesses like obesity, dementia, diabetes, anxiety and depression, heart diseases, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and, OMG, cancer! It can as well reduce the risk of them killing you.

But, are you aware of the fact that physical activities can also impact favorably on your sex life? It’s perfectly normal for many people to hear the portmanteau word “Sexercise” without really having any solid grasp of its meaning.

Well then, sit tight!

Jason Rosell [a Television Celebrity, lifestyle expert, Author, Performance Mindset/Life Coach, and Founder of the international wellness brand: Caliente Fitness] coined the portmanteau word “Sexercise”, which means physical activities done to enhance sexual performance [thus heightening satisfaction by participants] and ultimately making the most of regular sexual activity in terms of sexual health.

As a result, that can impact positively on your sexuality is good body condition by way of increasing the comfortability of sex, reducing your chances for arousal problems like erectile dysfunction induced by stress or mental health, enhancing your sexual stamina, and boosting your body confidence.

The thing is to accelerate your pulse rate through aerobic exercises [such as running and swimming] and thus increasing the flow of oxygenated blood [alongside other useful chemical compounds] to every part of your body including the genitals which plays a key role in fertility and in the course of sexual intercourse—pardon the wordplay.

Good news is activities such as flying a kite, taking an energetic hike, dancing and so on, are alternatives to traditional workouts; if you are not very taken with the latter.

Additional good news is that you don’t have to be a fitness freak to partake of the benefits. Research has shown that half an hour of exercise three times in a week is very much enough. Thus, engaging in gardening or shaking a leg to your playlist all count up to your aerobic exercise.

Sexercises to Improve your Sexual Health

As has been explained earlier, Sexercise marries Aerobic/Cardiovascular Exercises with strength-building exercises including Pelvic Floor Exercises. So we are discussing the three exercises that constitute this said ‘marriage.’

  • Pelvic Floor Exercises

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that is dome-shaped, striated, found in the floor of your pelvis, envelops the rectum, bladder and uterus, helps in bowel and bladder control, fixes the torso with extremity movements, and contracts for orgasm and relaxes for penile penetration.

You didn't just miss that, did you?!

This is a ‘big fat’ reason why, to improve your sexual health, exercising those vital pelvic floor muscles is key. It helps to keep your pelvic and vaginal muscles strong and healthy, leading to the intensification of orgasm. You can exercise your pelvic floor muscles through Kegel Exercises.

How Kegel Exercise is done varies from person to person, but you can perform it on your own terms once you have fully understood the basics.

Here is how to perform Kegel Exercise:

  • Find your pelvic floor muscles when micturating.
  • Clamp the muscles to stop the pee mid-flow for 10 seconds.
  • Let go for another 10 seconds.
  • Repeat these five times.
  • No worries if you can’t hold for the stated seconds. You can do it at your own pace and then gradually climb your way up to the stated time intervals.
