Did you know that all those hours you spend at the gym can pay off in a major way in between the sheets too? Well they can! Understanding this sweaty and sexy connection has major benefits ladies so get ready to take charge in both the gym and the bedroom ASAP!
1. Focused And Fierce
If you’ve been mid romp with your partner yet find yourself thinking about a deadline at work then lady it may be time to refocus. Exercise naturally helps sync both your mind and body so the more you do it the better you become at quieting your racing brain whether you are bicep curling or cowgirl-ing.
2. Amazing Arousal For All
When you do 15 uninterrupted burpees and when your man kisses you like it was the first time although it’s the millionth time, excitement is guaranteed to show up. And when you get excited blood surges to all the right parts of your body – not matter what your activity may be. Plus studies show that women who frequently exercise become aroused more quickly (The University of Texas at Austin). So yeah, about that workout. Get on it.
3. Pumped Up Pipes
Climaxing is an art that is mastered with proper breathing and increased lung capacity. True story sis. So next time you are powering through those power yoga poses or trying to intensify pleasure between the sheets, don’t hold your breath. Take quick powerful breaths instead and bring on the fireworks.
4. No Low Libido Here
Strength training produces high levels of testosterone – the hormones that play a major role in both muscles growth and sex drive- hello yet another reason so pump iron. Plus, since working out is an instant stress reliever the less stressed you are the more likely you are to turn sex down due to a lack of desire. Now tricep dip to that girl.
5. Sexy Self-Esteem
You know how after you workout you can’t help but want to post a workout selfie on Instagram? Well because exercising transforms the way you view your body lady. Duh. This boost in your self esteem also effects how you view sex. Basically if you like the way you look and feel in your skin then baring all with your boo (with the lights on) will feel like the natural thing to do.
