Monday Motivation: Let’s Get Physical

Men's Health |

Talk about a win-win situation, not only will you be getting a good workout by doing these exercises but it will also benefit you in the sack; and if you doing these exercises already, you are probably reaping all the benefits.

Better Together

Ever heard of the saying “couples who sweat together, stay together”, well according to studies; challenging physical hobbies spark arousal. So next time, take your partner on an activity date and watch the sparks fly. Dripping with sweat but feeling good as you just worked out together will have you more attracted to your partner.


“Harvard researchers found that male and female swimmers in their 60s had sex lives similar to people 20 years younger”. Need any more motivation to take up swimming? Not only does it burn calories, build endurance and boost blood flow but also combats stress and improves your strength.

Pelvic Thrust

This one might be obvious but no matter what your favourite position is, a pelvic thrust is a key part of it. If you’re out of shape, powerful pushes could be exhausting; focus on our hamstrings, calves to help build stamina and flexibility.


Get your heart beating faster and amp up the pleasure for you and your partner. Try brisk walking or cycling, anything that increases blood flow; involving your nether regions. Both parties win as cardio exercises are known to provide stronger erections for men and greater arousal for women according to a study done at the University of Texas.

Cat / Cow Stretch

Besides the weird name, this yoga pose should be thought of as another form of foreplay. It helps you focus and stay in the moment; limbers the spine and helps with maintaining your breath. How to do it? “Move with a steady flow, so that each rounding up (the cow part) takes a full breath out and each arching downward (the cat part) takes a full breath in.”


Not many peoples favourite exercise position but it could do wonders for your ab muscles, buttocks and upper arms. How it will benefit you in the sack? The above mentioned muscles help support you in order to stay close to your partner when it matters the most. You should try and do it once a day and build up gradually to 60 seconds or longer.

Core & Abs

Ever heard of a “coregasm”? This happens when you do crunches during core-strengthening workouts. If you experienced this, then lucky you however a strong core is important for almost everything you do and that includes how you perform in the sack.

Frog Pose

Worried about stress killing your buzz within the sack, try this exercise as it will open up your hips and stretches your inner thighs and groin; according to Liz Neporent, psychologist in NYC “This move will make you more flexible during lovemaking”.


Are you or your partners legs or back giving in just when you assume your favourite position, well try this exercise out. “ Lean back at a 45-degree angle for a few seconds before returning upright, and repeat. The move is subtle but creates a lot of staying power.”


Last but not the least, you probably thinking that this exercise is only meant for women but I am going to let you in on a ‘lil secret; kegels help men with premature ejaculation. “Developed to treat urinary incontinence, these strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, and that means explosive orgasms”. Most people do not know how to do them correctly, as it’s a ‘lil trickier for women but it’s simpler for men. Men, your genitals will lift.

So go and get physical…physical
